The future of the Middle East and Iran

The future of the Middle East and Iran

Even though the war in Iraq started more than a year ago, uncertainty and anarchy pervade the country. Tens of thousands of people, mostly civilians, have died, and the massacres continue.

Iraq’s peculiar structure, culture and religious buildings are being destroyed one by one. It appears certain that in Iraq people will have to endure such calamities for the foreseeable future. Unfortunately, innocent civilians continue to pay the cost of the war against terrorism.
The hawks got their needed backing after President George W. Bush won a second term in office. Oil magnates, arms companies and other big businesses supported Bush’s occupation of Iraq. The Middle East and Iraq are faced with new options. If we just take a look at the region, we'll see how much pain, bloodshed and anguish its people have suffered over the years. The ambitions of dictators, the desire to keep high titles and the lack of democracy have resulted in what we see today.

Currently, chaos, anarchy and fear reign in the region. There is also the possibility of certain states facing invasion due to terrorism. The basis of the invasion and the occupation of Iraq were the weapons of mass destruction and the toppling of its dictator.
The possibility of holding elections in Iraq on Jan. 30 has also brought up questions about stability in the country afterwards. The demands of certain ethic groups and the chaos still reigning in Iraq have produced many problems associated with the elections.
It's normal that the decision to hold elections will entail certain risks. Eventually, peace will be established in Iraq as long as the United States is determined to heal the wound.

If we just take a look at the "Axis of Evil," as Bush called it -- Iraq, Iran and North Korea -- we can see that Iran has very serious concerns. It believes its turn will come after Iraq is stabilized.
Iran releasing a statement on the advances it had made in its nuclear program was significant. This was further emphasized after it announced its intention to suspend these efforts under European Union guarantees.
Iran’s efforts to arm the Kurdish peshmerga fighters and other measures it has taken are a continued concern. The recent U.S. elections have shown where American priorities lie, despite the fact that the U.S. economy has suffered from Bush’s policies and that his relations with the European Union and the United Nations have been rocky.

It is certain that the United States will face continued global public pressure. Russian President Vladimir Putin’s announcement that they had advanced their nuclear capabilities is just a simple sign of the recommencement of an arms race and efforts to challenge the U.S.’s superpower status.
Consequently, the Middle East is still open to much upheaval. Regional countries cannot turn a blind eye to global developments. Their perceived inaction on matters such as democracy and human rights cannot continue. Their leaders should start to realize that their national wealth won’t be enough to protect their stature. The world has entered a new period of understanding. Peace and freedom will dominate global strategy. The extent to which countries adhere to these standards will show how much they respect their own people; otherwise, the cost of being forced to adhere to them is very high, as everyone can see.
