Iran V UAE – ‘Russia and Ukraine Gulf edition’ coming soon?

Illustrative Image

Written by Gavin O’Reilly

Although receiving miniscule media coverage, Thursday’s announcement that Israel had deployed military infrastructure to the UAE and Bahrain in the shape of radar systems, ostensibly to counter an alleged missile threat from nearby Iran, should be a cause for concern amongst onlookers.

Coming in the same 24 hour period in which Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett paid a surprise visit to the Emirates, and in which Israeli Forces bombed Damascus International Airport, the announcement that both Abu Dhabi and Manama had agreed to host Israeli military infrastructure should be seen as the first step towards current tensions between Tel Aviv and Tehran being placed on a possibly irreversible path towards conflict in the region.

Indeed, Israeli encirclement of Iran via Tel Aviv-allied Arab states possibly triggering a war between Tehran and both the UAE and Bahrain bears a stark similarity to the nine-year long build-up of provocations which would ultimately led Russia to launch a military intervention into neighbouring Ukraine in February of this year.

In November 2013, following the decision by then-Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych to suspend a trade deal with the EU in order to pursue closer ties with Russia, a CIA-orchestrated regime change operation, known as ‘Euromaidan’, would be launched in order to depose Yanukovych’s leadership and replace him with the pro-Western Petro Poroshenko – whose coalition government would contain rabid far-right sympathisers hostile to Moscow.

Indeed, such was the anti-Russian sentiment amongst the new US-backed Kiev government that the predominantly ethnic-Russian Donbass region in the east of the country would breakaway to form the independent republics of Donetsk and Luhansk in April 2014, following the previous month’s successful reunification of the Crimean Peninsula with the rest of Russia.

The establishment of these two pro-Russian Republics however, would spark a near eight-year long conflict in the eastern European country, in which Kiev would use neo-Nazi paramilitaries such as Azov Battalion and Right Sector to wage an ethnic cleansing campaign against the inhabitants of the Donbass.

In spite of Western media descriptions of ‘Russian aggression’ however, Moscow had sought to resolve the conflict in Donbass through peaceful mean via the Minsk Agreements – which would see both Republics granted a degree of autonomy whilst still remaining under the rule of Kiev.

With 14,000 dead in the Donbass conflict, NATO failing to honour a post-Cold War agreement not to expand eastwards, and the subsequent confirmation that US-funded labs were developing bioweapons in Ukraine however, Moscow’s hand was ultimately forced in February of this year when a Russian military intervention was launched into Ukraine in order to remove neo-Nazi elements from power and to destroy any military infrastructure that would ultimately have been used by NATO had Kiev gone on to become a member.

This is where the similarities with Iran and the neighbouring Gulf states of the UAE and Bahrain come into play, with both countries having formalised diplomatic links with Tel Aviv via the September 2020 US-brokered Abraham Accords.

Lauded as a ‘peace deal’ by the then-administration of Donald Trump, despite Israel, the UAE and Bahrain never actually being at war, the ‘normalisation’ agreements, coming eight months after the US had nearly triggered a new Gulf war with the assassination of Iranian Quds Force commander Qasem Soleimani in a drone strike, were seen by many geopolitical observers as a means to contain Iran within the region, a long-time foreign policy aim shared by both Washington and Tel Aviv.

Indeed, despite the relationship between Israel and both states initially starting off on a purely diplomatic basis, the announcement that Israeli radar systems are to be moved into both the UAE and Bahrain marks a dangerous step towards a scenario were Israeli military infrastructure is placed within striking distance of Iran – a situation that would likely lead to a major regional conflict, one that could reach far beyond the Persian Gulf.

Iran can flatten the tiny corrupt pimps of UAE in ten minutes. JAI IRAN!

Indian students who had to leave studies midway due to Ukrainian ignorant Nazi racism and abuse as they fled the Russia-Ukraine conflict will be offered admission in Russian universities without them losing out on their previous academic years, Roman Babushkin, Deputy Chief of Mission of Russian Embassy in New Delhi, said here on Sunday.

Babushkin said the students would be admitted to Russian universities where they can continue with their respective courses from where they were left off without losing out on the previous years of study.

Russia ‘earned’ $98bn in fuel exports in 100 days of Ukraine war with a economic boom

Russia has earned $98bn from fossil fuel exports during the first 100 days of its war in Ukraine, with the European Union being the top importer, according to new research. Russian economy is booming and the Ruble has strengthens by 110%. Even MacDonalds under Russian control as Simply Delicious is doing better.

Disinfo

McDonald’s in the US uses the cheapest meat, produce and buns it can buy so I bet the re-invented Russian version is actually a higher quality food

Ragnar

It can’ be worse, for sure!

The Objective

Don’t worry. Iran won’t do anything. That’s how the Shiites are if you don’t know them. They talk a lot but never fight due to fear of destruction. Azerbaijan is the only exception because it’s backed by a Sunni country that will fight to defend itself. If Iran didn’t do Jackshit after Soleimani’s assassination, will it pre-empt a war with Israel AKA the U.S.A? The Israelis take this bold step because they know Iran won’t do anything risky.

Israel and jews do not exist since 40 AD. Read a fucking history book. A shithole called Israel is just another country by local kebabs goat fuckers. Same as so called “arabs” that do not exist either. It would be like claiming I am Roman and direct descendant of Caesar.

Iran will just bomb such radars as Israel bombs in Syria no big deal. If israel wants to make a big deal about it they will lose and they now it.

Donnachad

The truth is Zionist annexed Palestine is a very small country –no need for nukes to hit it , Iran is quite right ,it could flatten Israel using its conventional aerial weapons of which it has many. Israel knows this and is trying to cause strategic problems for Iran that would bring in Nato -aka USA to attack Iran as has happened to Libya -etc so that Israel can remain supreme over the region. Its long-term aim is a “Greater Israel ” -called in Germany= Lebensraum.

The Zionists and their American arsehole losers can not even have influence in Latin America, let alone Iran.

Reality versus political hyperbole of UK influence as much hyped and ignored “summit” breaks up in embarrassment.

Summit of the Americas total failure:

Boycotted by Bolivia, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Mexico

Cuba, Nicaragua and Venezuela were barred from attending

Argentina and Belize have been sharply critical of Washington. Only US ended up supporting itself.

Nicaragua has very recently and openly stated that they will be welcoming a large Russian military presence. A very clear message of “F**k you” to the US administration

Just it flattened Qasem Soleimani to death? I saw Ayatollah Khamenei crying like a faggot earlier this year during the anniversary of his death. He was crying like a little girl. They all were. They looked like a bunch of crying lunatics.

And we knocked your bases, and killed your top CIA chief of the Middle East after trump said he’d declare war, where’s trump at now?

Rattus

The problem is that Israel has adopted the Samson Doctrine. Any clear threat to the nationhood of Israel will involve their nuclear weapons, and the perceived threat of Iranian nuclear developments will mean they will not hesitate to take a first-use stance.

NATO's PROXYTUTE

Iran could easily counter this development by forming an economic and military alliance with the Houthis, perhaps a mutual defence pact in which Tehran could set up a military base in Sanaa where thousands of missiles could hit all hostile adversaries.

Iran has 99 year “economic and strategic” partnership with China worth half a trillion. Google Iranian weaponry even in Wikipedia, these Persians are smart. The Zionists will commit suicide if they provoke them. Zionist agenda is like in Ukraine, fight Iran to the last corrupt petro-Bedouin.

Also, with all the sanctions on Russia, Russia no longer has any roadblocks in the way to sell Iran even more advances weapons systems and technology.

Especially with the new Russian-China bridge, shows both are real about strengthening their ties with allies. Russia also might join Iran new drone factory

As an Iranian Im telling u that your analogy is not a strong one. All these arab puppets of the International Jewery combined are just like a fresh boil waiting to be popped by Iran’s IRGC. They dont have the guts nor the means to even move a finger against Iran. You can just have a look up to whatever the fuck the saudis been doing against Hothis in Yemen to realise the authenticity of my words. And Israel and their American pimps in US gov know that if they drop a single bomb on Iran’s soil that would be without question the end of israel. So there will be no act of war from israel against Iran, NONE.

Seethefuture

Dropping bomb on Iran’s soil isn’t the only mean of direct attack. Stop your rhetoric bullshits already as Israel has openly killed your scientists right on your soil and sabotaged your country”s critical infrastructures many times in the past.

Everyone knows Iranians are cowards. They would take as far up their ass as they can. Sometimes they created fake retaliation to save face. Iran is the only country to inform their enemy when where and how they would retaliate for the assassination of their general after all that talks about revenge.

Iranians are pure stupid. They help improve their enemy’s economy by paying ridiculously high price for inferior products (hundreds of Boeing aircrafts) while getting sanctioned from the same enemy. Add insults to that, more of their ships get seized, again by the same enemy.

If you’re weak, stfu and don’t do anything to stand out, especially when you don’t have the balls to back up your mouth. You Iranians are super lame. It’s so embarrassing.

The Objective

Boy, did you get everything right this time! Russia is Iran’s current umbrella in the middle east otherwise the Mullahs would be dripping wet with embarrassment. They want nukes but don’t have the ball to dash for it as North Korea did. They think deception and tricks will help them achieve nukes without a war. That era is long past, especially with America’s infiltration of the Iranian security apparatuses. Imagine Turkey deciding to build nukes and someone threatening a war. The Turks will prepare for war and then openly dash for the bomb. The Mullahs are the exact opposite. They think tough talk is bravery. Iran won’t do anything risky if Israel killed Khamenei in a drone strike. We’ll see how far they can go against Israel’s decision to deploy a threat ring around Iran. I would be VERY VERY surprised if Iran trikes those systems pre-emptively as it should. When Russian airstrikes killed 35 Turkish soldiers in Syria, Russia did not take credit for the attack to prevent a war with Turkey. Had Russia taken credit for the attack like America did for Soleimani, Erdogan would have ordered retaliatory strikes against Russian forces in Syria. However, Turkey retaliated by killing hundreds of Syrian soldiers with many Russian soldiers embedded with them. However, Turkey said nothing about the dead Russians, so Putin wasn’t compelled to retaliate, but the message got across that Russia had better prepare for a full-scale war if it intends to harm Turkish soldiers in Syria. I can’t imagine Iran having such balls.

Attila

Ahson

Don’t you think you went overboard with your accusations as an Al-Baqistani? Iran is doing fine. Retaliation doesn’t have to be immediate. The point here is that as long as Iran’s strategic goals are met, Iran is winning. No need for Iran to massacre Sunni/ wahabbi on the drop of a dime. The west seizes Iranian ships, Iran seizes their ships in retaliation. Boeing deal never materialized that you are upset about? Sanctions were removed on Iran when that deal was signed. You can’t go anywhere else to buy commercial airliners other than Boeing or Airbus. Nobody else makes them as reliable. As far as retaliation for assassinating Iranians goes, the Vevak is active…….but can’t advertise its activities, because you demand it. Likewise the Iranian ministry of trade can’t publish its actual figures…….And you know that will result in further sanctions. So plausible deniability is the path forward. My suggestion to you is to worry about your bankruptcy in Al-Baqistan. India has fucked you up using the US/ IMF as a battering ram. You are a defeated nation. A failed state. Iran’s doing great compared to your shit-hole…..Don’t worry about Iran.

The US and NATO are now too weak to sustain another war or proxy war and the world knows it. Every 2-bit despot dictator or religious fanatical government is starting to eye the lands they have long desired to acquire. I suspect the days of the US being the world’s policeman are coming to an end on top of that, they have alienated Russia which has veto rights in the UN Security council, so the US won’t be able to get any internationally legal help from them.

Another similarity is that the vast majority of Bahrain native population 80% + are either bahrani eg people who speak farsi as original language and see themselves as persians and have had their language and culture supressed by the wahabi rulers (origionally imported from arabia by the british empire and not native to Bahrain) or native original Bahraini Shia arabs who traditionally look to Basra /Najaf for culture and politics and marriage, but who are also sympathic and natural allies to Iran in a religious cultural historical way.

All of Iran enemies love money, all Iran has to do is bribe the right people and we’ll start seeing intel leaks. Israel top general maid was caught on Iranian payroll, if Iran wanted, Benny Gantz would’ve been dead by now.

I get what is he trying to say but he also can’t just talk about other elements in this case as well… there is so much into this.

Iran has their “people” in UAE, Israel, KSA, Qatar, and Bahrain, and let’s not forget that the US has military infrastructures in UAE and Bahrain.

“02/24/2011 – One of the most important U.S. Navy bases in the world is located a few miles from the site of the mass protests in Bahrain: the headquarters of the Fifth Fleet. There are presently more than 2,000 American military personnel, and several thousand more support contractors working in the 100-acre command facility in Jaffair suburb of the capital city of Manama.”

What Zion are doing is spying on stupid Wahhabis. They set up NGOs in UAE LMFAO these Wahhabis are fuking rtded, yeah you think Zion care about Wahhabis.

As for those radar systems – yes those are shit.
