The Shah had allowed women to attend the University and did not institute Shariah law. The Shah exiled the Ayatollah, whereupon the Ayatollah took up residence in Paris and proceeded to coordinate the rioting from there. At the same time the Ayatollah ordered subversives to enter Iraq with the purpose of undermining the Baath regime under Saddam Hussein in order to foment revolution there.
The Ayatollah and his associated radicals had designs on ushering in the Islamic revolution and Sharia Law in Iran and intrigued in Iraq toward the same end. Jimmy Carter became involved and the Carter Administration helped to facilitate the Islamic Revolution that ushered in the “reign of terror” under the Ayatollah Khomeini. But the Saddam Hussein Administration in Iraq was well informed by a network of agents. The Revolution succeeded in Iran but not in Iraq. The same strategy of inciting riots as a spring board for revolution was expected to be successful in Iraq but instead it resulted in horrible war between Iraq and Iran. If the USA did not intervene on behalf of Iraq, Iran would have successfully won the war and created the Iraqi Revolution in Iraq and in Kuwait also.
The Iranian intrigue in Iraq today is intended to resume the revolutionary designs of 1979. The realization of an Iranian revolution in Iraq is so fraught with dangerous consequences for the free world that it must not be allowed to occur. Saddam Hussein understood more than the Carter Administration that the Ayatollah was not content to limit his revolutionary zeal to Iran but had global ambitions towards world domination under Sharia Law.
Consider the geostrategic importance of Iraq with its military, its industrial and technological infrastructure and its geostrategic location. Consider Kuwait with its petroleum and refineries, and Saudi Arabia with its petroleum reserves and airport and distribution infrastructure. To the east consider Pakistan with its nuclear capability and access to India. Then consider Afghanistan with its vast area and strategic location to Pakistan and Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan. To the north of these countries lies Kazakhstan. Iran has plans to purchase purified uranium from Kazakhstan.
Those who do not understand the radical world view of radical Islam should not be directing foreign policy. Jimmy Carter’s ignorance of foreign policy brought about the fall of the Shah of Iran, the rise of radical Islam, the Iran – Iraq war and the scourge of world terrorism. The current Administration's foreign policy unless checked will usher in the destruction of Israel and the most ambitious global terrorism campaign conceivable with the specter of nuclear terror haunting every nation across the globe.
STRATEGIC ALLIANCES IN ASIA
The recent Agreement of Cooperation between China and Russia may not technically spell out a military compact but the fact that China has been investing billions of money from America in Russia for High Tech Weapons development. This suggests at least a military component to their cooperation. China and Russia have been able to dictate their terms because the US policy has been broken under decades of politically left control.
