The Daily Beast tells us The Real Reason Obama Did the Iran Deal
And Slate knows the ‘real reason’ why Israel, Saudi Arabia and ‘Neocons’ hate the Iran Deal.
The right and the left are taking their sides, but it is hard to find a ‘real’ reason to take Iran or Saudi Arabia’s side in any issue. Both are enemy states, both support terrorist militias, both are, basically, enemies of humanity.
The Saudi regime and the Iranian regime are both more afraid of their own people than they are of each other. Most of the regimes in the Middle East are run by kleptocrats who used Israel and the ‘Palestinian cause’ to keep a lid on their peoples’ justifiable outrage for decades. In 2011, when kleptocratic, authoritarian mismanagement became too much to bear, they lost control and got the ‘Arab Spring’.
The war that Iran and Saudi Arabia are ginning up between Shia and Sunni is their last chance to avoid meeting Gaddafi’s fate. America and Israel also want to maintain the status quo, but if they don’t address the issues that caused the Arab spring, if they can’t stop relying on horrifically incompetent and genuinely evil leaders to keep order in the region, the whole mess will fall apart no matter what we do. We can’t expect people in the Middle East to put up with being ruled by monsters just because we prefer the devil we know.
