Iran is up to more then you know in the Middle East

Iran is perhaps the most misunderstood superpower in the world. Iranians, forget Amijenidaddy it is the Ayatollah that count, and Muslims in general, think in terms of generations and years as opposed to the West that thinks in terms of fiscal quarters. Iran has slowly been organizing Muslims from each sect and organizing them against colonialism.

Persian Muslims hatred of colonialism comes first, then they have thier disagreements about who should succeed Muhammed, etc. The more we occupy their lands either through physical occupation (Iraq) or complete support (Israel), the more we empower them against Zionists and Infidels. Their faith is no joke and they are more than willing to die, hell, they literally want to die for their cause/faith. Iran is perhaps the smartest player in the Middle East right now and although they can organize a million people in uniform and take over Bahrain during their lunch break, they do not think in those terms.

Iran is systematically taking over the Middle East through Basra in Iraq, Turkish Kurdistan, obviously Hezbollah, and even gaining popularity with Sunni Muslims in SA that have nothing better to do, literally, than plot and plan against Al Saud and the West. Iran doesn't even really need a nuclear weapon and their rhetoric about one is more to be taken seriously and prevent an attack from Isreal than anything.

Iran will gain control of Northern Iraq, Southern Iraq (already have), and gain support in both SA, Lebanon, Kurdistan, Pakistan, and Afghanistan while they are in civil war. Once they complete that they will effectively control the world's oil and energy routes. Iran understands how to win against the West and how generation long conflicts will cripple the West both financially and mentally. We have no clue how to fight a war like that nor do we have the means. We cannot take over Iran and turning it into a parking lot will only strengthen their cause.

A major mistake would be to consider what Israel just did to Hamas as some sort of victory. Isreal is frigidly afraid of what is going on in the Middle East as there is a major shift against the West and against Colonialism which used to be held in check both from support through Saudia Arabia (SA) and through Saddam Hussein. Now SA is a melting pot and perhaps the most unstable place in the world, yet is the one we have allied ourselves with!!

We have ignored Iran at our own peril and it would be in our very best interests to engage them in a dialogue. I truly believe that Iran would be in favor of a state of Isreal existing so long as the support of the West was limited and the Palestinians were allowed to co-exist and take back Mecca. Having Mecca in the hands of infidels is what is really pissing them off, in my opinion.

Im sorry, but I don't see Iran as a superpower.
Can you tell me how they are?
I see small country's like New Zealand or Finland as more of super powers than Iran.

I hate all this speak of Iran, making it sound like the rest of the world should be scared of them. Is it too naive to think that if we stop demonising them, start treating the nation more as our friends instead of enemies that we might get further? If they start stepping out of line, then do something. Not before.

And this isn't meant at the OP at all, more in general.

Maybe replace superpower with developing country?
They do have a huge supply of oil, but nothing near the likes of Saudi - and they're hardly a superpower.

Everything was interesting until I got to this part. Mecca, in the hands of infidels? Dude, Mecca is near the western boundary of Saudi no way "in the hands of the infidels"....
