Another fine post via Dr Alf.
A prosperous Iran is not a problem as long as the West contains it and looks to the future by engaging with their young people who in most cases would like a more liberated Western lifestyle.
The present Iranian leadership consists of much better negotiators than Europe and America which makes them potentially dangerous to our interests.
Israel’s judgement about the nuclear weapons agreement was probably right but Saudi Arabia is a bigger threat to world stability than Iran because of its support for dangerous Wahabi philosophy and ISIS.
What we do about Iran’s growing influence and the future bankruptcy of the House of Saud, due to low oil prices and diminishing tax revenues, is another matter but the West needs to be ready to encourage regime change across all the Gulf States whilst achieving rapprochement with Russia to contain Iran’s Mullahs.
