IRAN WANTS EMPIRE
The United States seems to have been weakened economically and it’s military is overstreched. Europe has yet to find it’s footing. Russia is trying to rebuild it’s empire. China is busy doing the same and India is rising. Their joint efforts to stop Iran as evidenced by economic sanctions have been easily managed with the help of Dubai banders and the Hawala system. Nor can the oil weapon have ever been stronger. Just note the ultimatum Iran delivered to Royal Dutch Shell, France’s Total and Spain’s Repsol, threatening to renew their contracts.
It is a small wonder that Islamist Iran in a manner reminiscent of pre-Munich Nazi Germany, believes that the time for a reconstituted Muslim empire is now and that Shia Iran is best situated to snatch back the leadership role the Sunnis have held for the past few centuries.
Speaking to thousands gathered on Tehran University campus, the head of the Guardian Council, Ayatollah Ahmad Jannati, did not mince words. Just as importantly, the Iranian News Agency made sure his battle cry would be heard around the world. In other words, the Sunni terrorist cry for the renewal of a Muslim Khalifat has been picked up by a Shia theocracy with ambitions of empire.
