Following the breakup of ISIS
the splintering of all existing coalitions is ensured.
Well, not all, anyway.
What remains is the tight cooperation
between Syria, Iran, and Lebanon.
It has come to pass that the players in the Arab world
have now come to up the ante
and throw in their bets on the table
that represents the dry and barren Middle East.
Curiously enough, the price of oil slides
at a rate which is now alarming to the oil producers.
It is as if the cessation of oil pilferage from Syria
has not started a bigger demand, and hence a higher price,
for Arab oil.
Raising one’s ante necessarily means
lowering its selling price of oil.
It is now a buyers market for oil.
Profit is now sacrificed in favor of a steady buyer.
Syria can now enjoy the profit from oil.
And so will Iran.
The West has now entered a more confusing state
as regards its policy in the Middle East.
Further damage control gets them into more trouble.
As a result, the West has commenced skirting
the United Nations’ rules and conventions.
The main object is to save face
and twisting the facts is one resort.
If it tries to ante up and join in this gaming table,
it will make the situation more explosive.
