Iran was bluffing, it put everything on the line, everything meaning its infrastructure, its economy, its independence etc..
Major General Yahya Rahim Safavi of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) notes that Tehran’s gamble is making “Iran a great power
in the Middle East.”
The product of the gamble
The plan is to influence heavily the Middle East, South East, and Central Asia. In order to do that, it needs co-operation with China, and it has
that. Russia is another story:
In Asia, Iran has focused attention on Tajikistan and Afghanistan—challenging Russian and American influences there. It initiated negotiations to
lay a natural gas pipeline via Pakistan to India to become a major supplier of energy to South Asia, a scheme unlikely to materialize for decades,
India is under heavy influence, and pressure from US, but India will also fall for the Iranian charm, and attraction of trade. India is hoping that
Iran doesn't have strings attached to the trade deals they make, as you can see Russia and US, probably even China have many strings attached with
he will be met with pleas from the government against the imposition of US sanctions on a consortium of Indian state-run oil firms that plan to
invest nearly US$8 billion in Iran's rich Farsi gas fields.
India has already lost money because of US, I don't know how much the US can afford economically, to counter deal with countries such as India. In the
sense that the US is in trouble grounds economically, countries such as India will shift its allegiance slowly and efficiently towards Iran:
But India, having lost out on a US$7.5 billion Iran-Pakistan-India (IPI) pipeline pact due to security, transit and geostrategic issues, is looking to
secure investment in Iran's Farsi gas fields to satisfy Delhi's voracious need for energy.
Tehran and Islamabad have formally signed a gas pipeline deal under which Iran will supply India's energy-deficient eastern neighbor with natural gas
from 2014. It will be a truncated 1,100 km version of the larger 2,600 km IPI project.
While India is crying for America to allow deals with Iran, Pakistan is already positioning itself closer to Iran than America.
Iran recently proposed to bring in Bangladesh in the cross-border gas pipeline. China too has expressed interest and would be a major investor in
Thursday, September 16 According to Armenian media sources, this autumn an Iran-Armenia oil pipeline will begin its construction. The cost of this
pipeline will be approximately USD 180 million. The costs of which are distributed evenly between Iran and Armenia. However, in practice, all expenses
will be paid by Iran with half of the total amount being registered as a loan to Armenia. This debt will be settled from the profits received through
exploiting the pipeline. Armenia believes it will receive petrol from Iran and diesel through this pipeline. The price of these products will be cheap
and affordable for Armenia’s consumption as they will be cheaper than European product prices. So, this project could potentially be rather
beneficial for Armenia.
Iran pushing towards Europe, through Turkey:
Iran is our gate opening to Asia, Erdogan
"I think that there are initiatives we can launch together to ensure welfare, peace, stability and confidence in the entire region," Erdoğan said
during Turkish-Iranian Business Forum at Istanbul's Ceylan Intercontinental Hotel.
Turkey is already moving further away from Europe, and getting closer to Iran, economically..
With increased competition by the emerging powers from the global South, it would appear
that Western actors can no longer claim a monopoly over Africa’s resources.
Iran is helping Africans to produce their own cars and tractors and gives them cheaper technological science and technical services
Iran is stepping in Africa, and trying to create economic tied with Africa. The reason why there is such a fuss in regards to Iran, what ever you
hear, whether true or not, has much to do with the fact that the Western powers want Iran to be isolated, it is better for West to keep Iran isolated,
thann for it to flourish and make friends, which will gossip about Western crimes, past and present.
Iran's Latin American Power Play
In January 2007, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad led a five-day official visit to Venezuela, Nicaragua, and Ecuador. His visit coincided with
the inaugurations of Nicaragua's newly-elected president Daniel Ortega and Ecuador's Rafael Correa. While in Caracas, he signed 11 new agreements
and approved a $2 billion joint investment fund to finance projects intended to "thwart U.S. domination."
Iran now has fully operational embassies in Cuba, Venezuela, Mexico, Brazil, and Argentina, with plans to strengthen its diplomatic presence in
Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Nicaragua, and Uruguay.
The influence is killing the Western domination, the decline of Western economic monopoly is now.
Through this Gamble, Iran has gained much militarily, first, since it was isolated for so long, it has designed and created its owned domestic
weapons, for example the newly built drone, and the newly launched satellite. This means Iran can militarily influence many countries, under a common
theme, to end the Western domination of the world. Russia is quiet happy with Iran for a reason, but at the same time keeps little pressure on
Iran, because Iran is also pushing towards Russia. That being said, Russia is in a position where it can either join Iran against the West, or join
the West against Iran, both ways Russia will be effected lol.. Perfect place Iran has placed itself, like they say, they are the inventors of
Iran has reinforced its links with Shiite militias and politicians in Iraq so that successful nation building there requires Tehran’s cooperation.
Providing material support for Hezbollah in Lebanon and Hamas in Gaza gives Iran clout among the Arab public.
The Shiite support for Iran, in Iraq has completely frozen the West from making any moves militarily.
If Iran is attacked, the important Iraq is gone out of Western control, not to mention Israel, which is an important player. Hezbollah and Hamas are
supported militarily for that purpose, for Iran to have the ability to counter any imminent attack against itself.
As part of Iran’s adventurism in the western hemisphere, the IRGC engages in arms sales via its ally Syria to Venezuela and Bolivia. It now expands
that activity by sharing “weapons know-how and the finished products” with many other developing nations.
Iran is Arming anti-US nations, in the South of the American continent. It is a good strategy, to empower your enemy's enemy in its backyard.
Ensuring robust diplomatic, economic and military ties with Latin American nations is yet one more aspect of the Islamic Republic’s globalizing its
influence. Venezuela, Bolivia, Nicaragua, and Cuba are forming alliances with Iran aimed at replacing U.S. visions of democracy and
Following the cancelation Iran announced that it will construct a domestic missile defense system similar to the sophisticated Russian anti-aircraft
Iran is building its own version of the SA-20 after the denial of trade from Russia.
This will boost the Iranian military capability once more, and Iran will sell these weapons to anti-American countries to counter its domination.
Every time something is banned from selling, Iran invents, designs and creates it domestically The isolation has forced Iran to become independent,
that is the biggest failure of the Western empire, in regards to its policies.
Iran is heading to counter the Western monopoly.
Iran is proud of its history, and sees the Western powers as newly formed powers who are not mature yet and shouldn't lead the world because kids
usually make mistakes such as Iraq, and also try to hide important facts there of.
I will leave you with this quote:
Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki claims that Western nations “lack political maturity.”
