Eigenlijk niks schokkend. Maar voor het geval er nog mensen zijn die twijfelen aan de redenen waarom de VS in het M-O steunt wie ze steunt.
Henry Kissinger has warned that destroying Isis could lead to an “Iranian radical empire”.
“The outside world’s war with Isis can serve as an illustration. Most non-Isis powers — including Shia Iran and the leading Sunni states — agree on the need to destroy it. But which entity is supposed to inherit its territory? A coalition of Sunnis? Or a sphere of influence dominated by Iran?
“The answer is elusive because Russia and the Nato countries support opposing factions. If the Isis territory is occupied by Iran’s Revolutionary Guards or Shia forces trained and directed by it, the result could be a territorial belt reaching from Tehran to Beirut, which could mark the emergence of an Iranian radical empire,” Mr Kissinger added.
