We Need to Defend the Oil Wells

The Middle East and the world will be in great danger following Israel and America’s inevitable destruction of Iran’s nuclear weapon’s program as Iran will not under any circumstances be allowed to obtain nuclear weapons capability. Twelver Sharia forbids offensive war and for the ruling mullahs in Iran is the American-Israeli destruction of the nuclear weapons program theologically speaking a golden opportunity to lash out against perceived and actual enemies and rivals in the region and around the world and thus in their mind prompt the reappearance of the Hidden Imam. Iran is both planning a global terror war with weapons of mass destruction and simultaneously intending to conquer the Middle Eastern Twelver eschatological region which hosts the cities of Mecca, Damascus and Jerusalem where the three Islamic messianic figures of the Mahdi (identified by Twelvers with the Hidden Imam), Jesus and the Dajjal are expected to appear.

Israel nowadays has excellent relations with much of the Arab world and a new Israel-led security architecture is rapidly being erected in the region. The question is whether Oman, Qatar and Kuwait truly understand the serious threat that Iran poses against them following the inevitable American-Israeli destruction of the Iranian nuclear weapons program. An apt comparison is Ukrainian president Zelensky who in the weeks prior to the Russian invasion did not want to acknowledge the Russian threat despite persistent US warnings backed up by solid US intelligence data. It is profoundly dangerous for Muscat, Doha and Kuwait City to remain outside of the new emerging regional security architecture as they are extremely vulnerable to Iranian aggression as Tehran undoubtedly regard these three nations as American vassals that are legitimate to attack and invade immediately after the joint American-Israeli destruction of the Iranian nuclear weapons program.

Normally could Iran not attack them because it would run contrary to Twelver sharia to engage in offensive war but the inevitable American-Israeli destruction of the Iranian nuclear weapons program program presents an almost unique opportunity to attack, invade and conquer the entire Twelver eschatological region, including all GCC nations with their immense oil wealth. Yet this is not merely a matter for the rulers of Oman, Qatar and Kuwait to ponder since it is essential that their oil resources do not fall into the hands of Iran. The international community needs to engage in a concerted and sustained diplomatic effort to convince Muscat, Doha and Kuwait City that it is pivotal indeed that they join the new regional security architecture. This is not only a matter of national survival for these three nations but also a question of the global price of gasoline and the danger that Iran gains control over further oil resources in the Gulf region and with that acquires the ability to extort the international community.
