In his recent interview with Al-Arabiya, America's
new President Barack Obama indicated that he would adopt a diplomatic approach
in dealing with Iran,
and praised the great Persian people!! For those watching, this raised many
questions, and analysts of the American-Iranian conflict wondered how serious
and realistic Obama was.
Iran, which former President
Bush classified as part of an "axis of evil," welcomed Obama’s
speech, and announced that it would cooperate with the new American
administration, as if the Cold War between the two countries was nearing its
end! Keen observers of political and military developments since the events of
September 11 have concluded that, overall, the Americans have favored the
Iranian regime, since U.S. military power helped bring down Iran’s enemies (The
Taliban in Afghanistan and the regime of Saddam Hussein). So what's the nature
of their conflict? How serious is it? Where is the truth???
The regime of the mullahs,
according to American political and military leaders, represents the greatest
threat to the safety of U.S.
troops in Iraq
and the greatest menace to the Jewish state, and it has repeatedly refused all
invitations from the international community to suspend its nuclear program.
Furthermore, Iran has behaved as though it were immune to the sanctions imposed
through the efforts of President Bush, who characterized the world with the
words, "you're either with me or against me,” without allowing any party a
third option. [President Bush actually said, "you're either with us or against us."]
has often seemed much closer than armed conflict, as if a settlement were a
foregone conclusion ... and one need not have a penetrating intelligence to see
a convergence of interests and draw some obvious conclusions.

The alleged conflict in the
Iraqi arena, for example, is the best evidence of such a convergence and of
coordinated joint action. This is very clear in terms of the extensive support
of both Iran and the United States for the Shiite and Kurdish parties
that now hold power in Iraq
(the Supreme Islamic Iraqi Council, the Al-Dawa Party and the Kurdish parties).
Perhaps the reason for this cooperation is the existence of common enemies like
al-Qaeda, radical parties like the Sadrists and others (along the lines of “the
enemy of my enemy is my friend”).
The supposed conflict between
the United States and Iran calls for a serious examination by all parties that
may be affected by it. After all, to act, one must first know the truth!! Is
this a real conflict or an attempt to mislead? There is much anecdotal evidence
to support and refute both theories.
