Strange as it might be but a new scenerio that starts to appear in the middle east.|
Now, the United States needs to stay on in MESOPOTAMIA and tap it's crude oil and gas for the benefit of the United States and her war allies. (call it "spoils of war")
So, Arab GCC might as well "ROTECT THEMSELVES".
If the United States uses MESOPOTAMIA as their crude oil source.
then Japan, China, UK should ally themselves with the SAUDI ARABIA government as their crude oil source.
while Korea, Taiwan, France, Thailand, Singapore could allign themselves with Kuwait, United Arab Emirates etc. as allies for crude oil reserves.
The ARAB-GCC must realized that you need a MARKET for crude oil, and due to short supply of water, vegetation and other materials in the desert states of the middle east, they would need those states as their supplier of CONSUMER and DURABLE GOODs. Of course the Arabs needs to have a Pan Arab alliance to militarily protect their combines states!
It's a good and perfect fit.
A good change in scenerio!
note: Korea has made an agreement with ASEAN, making ASEAN a hinterland, while it has make a move "a la Francois" to strengthen ties with an Arab state! With military aid and expeditionary force assistance might be welcome by some Arab states!
