    What's up with Iran ?

    Post by papa_umau on Tue 17 Jun 2014, 12:41 pm

    AND.... why are we making overtures to this repressive country where previously Sharia law overruled civil law.

    Now that the soldiers of ISIS and the off-springs of extremist Jehadi principle found in many middle Eastern states is causing grief and bloodshed throughout the region, why should we look to Iran as a partner in this "holy" war ?

    Here is a clip from an article in The Telegraph that also questions this very strange new alliance:

    What do you think of this very strange state of affairs as Iran starts to sound almost liberal in it's views.

    I will tell you what is going on here:

    Iran is wholly ruled by the Shiite Muslim sub-division and they are happy to help to destroy the Sunnies wherever they are looking for power.

    ISIS is a Sunny power-base and they are creating havoc in Iraq, Iran, Syria, Afghanistan, and many other Islamic states in the Middle East.

    This is sectarian genocide and nothing more or less.

    I agree, and I don't think that we should get mixed up in these extremist religious matters.

    What do any of you think of THIS

    Knowing your religious proclivities Papa, I am surprised that you choose to use The Bible to support your thesis.

    After all, it is many of the details in the holy books that make the extremists what they are.

    Of course you are right Angie, BUT, while "Armageddon" was originally conceived in the Christian old Testament Holy Bible, the idea of Armageddon is not new to many other religions too.

    I think it is too much of a coincidence for any world conflagration to start in the Middle East when we see what has been happening there for many hundreds of years already.

    I have always thought that the problems will not just be between the Muslims, the Jews and the Christains, ( as bad as that already is ), but if we really look at the area we will see that the hatred that drives most of the bloodshed in the Middle East is between different Islamic sects like the Sunnies and the Shiites.

    Yes guys n' gals the people who live in the middle east have warred between themselves for thousands of years and they do not need our help in order to try to wipe out each-other.

    The West and the East want to just leave them alone to get on with it.

    That's easy to say Zathrus, but not so easy to do, as for many political reasons many of the middle Eastern states see us in the East and the West as friends and look to us for support.

    It is when the big boys like Russia, America, China and India start to interfere with "assets" in the Middle East that we risk a third word war starting up.

    Of course oil and gas are at the centre of these so called "assets".
