Khashoggi’s mur­der: The be­gin­ning of the Greater Mid­dle East project

Tehran Times - - FRONT PAGE - Roohul­lah Ghasemian Jour­nal­ist

It’s not the first time that the Al-Saud regime bru­tally treats op­po­nents, but it is the first that West­ern coun­tries re­act to its hos­til­ity. The West gen­er­ally hides and re­jects anti-hu­man­i­tar­ian mea­sures be­cause of their de­pen­dence on Saudi’s oil, or the sale of bil­lions of weapons or gen­er­ous sug­ges­tions made by the rul­ing regime.

How­ever, the re­view of the Euro­pean ap­proach to pro­hibit­ing the sale of weapons to Saudi Ara­bia, or the ban of the Saudi in­vest­ment con­fer­ence by the world’s ma­jor cor­po­ra­tions, and even Trump dou­ble stan­dard re­marks in this re­gard, and the stress on the im­me­di­ate cease­fire in Ye­men, all in­di­cate that a new devel­op­ment is in process.

In fact, nei­ther oil nor mar­ket of Saudi Ara­bia seem to at­tract the West­ern coun­tries any longer, as Khashoggi’s case has pro­vided the nec­es­sary pre­text for Europe to end al­liance with one of the most re­ac­tionary and prim­i­tive states in the world.

Var­i­ous analy­ses have been made on the fu­ture of U.S.-Saudi re­la­tions.

Some be­lieve that the only rea­son be­hind the U.S. back­ing of the Saudi gov­ern­ment is the is­sue of oil and en­ergy se­cu­rity for the world’s largest econ­omy.

Mean­while, with the U.S. self-suf­fi­ciency in oil pro­duc­tion, there is vir­tu­ally no rea­son for Wash­ing­ton to sup­port Saudi Ara­bia, and Trump’s re­marks on the re­quire­ment for the Saudi side to pay for their se­cu­rity costs pre­cisely means that they should not ex­ceed the cred­i­bil­ity and in­ter­ests of the United States for such an al­liance.

Re­fer­ring to the Greater Mid­dle East Project and the need to break up the pow­ers of the re­gion into smaller in­cre­ments, the ex­perts be­lieve that the U.S. should pro­vide the nec­es­sary ground for the balka­niza­tion of the re­gion im­me­di­ately by cut­ting back from Saudi Ara­bia.

In­ter­est­ingly, in most sce­nar­ios drawn by West­ern think tanks for the West Asian fu­ture, the Mid-East, along with China and Rus­sia, must be sub­merged in in­se­cu­rity and civil wars, ul­ti­mately from the ashes of war­fare to con­sol­i­date the global em­pire and re­al­iza­tion.

Pro­vid­ing a new or­der for the coun­try as well as en­sur­ing Is­rael’s se­cu­rity. In­ter­est­ingly, the emer­gence of ISIS, whether will­ingly or un­will­ingly, served the great­est part in the re­al­iza­tion of the U.S. sce­nario.

Ac­cord­ing to the plan, all coun­tries in the re­gion should be split into smaller states based on lan­guages, eth­nic, re­li­gious, and ra­cial di­vi­sions, and with­out any ex­cep­tion.

There­fore, al­though the use of Saudi lever­age to curb Iran’s power in the re­gion is nec­es­sary, even­tu­ally this regime, like Iraq, Syria, Libya, Ye­men, Su­dan, Afghanistan and other coun­tries in the re­gion, must be bro­ken up sub­tly, with the for­ma­tion of small, bank­rupt and weak states, Is­rael will be­come the most pow­er­ful ac­tor in the West Asian re­gion.
