Persian Gulf Cooperation Council Policy on ISIS

Tuesday 26 May 2015
Alwaght- With the advent of ISIS and development of its capabilities in re-drawing the old borders of the West Asian countries, especially after extending its activities to Iraq and approaching the borders of Jordan and Saudi Arabia, the member states of the Persian Gulf Cooperation Council (PGCC) began to fight back ISIS. However, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait, more than other member states perceive ISIS as a dire threat. For this reason, most of the PGCC member states joined a US-backed coalition against ISIS. This approach, however, pursued two different objectives. First, they dismissed the allegation about giving support to ISIS and similar organizations in Syria and Iraq. Besides, together with the United States and the West, they marginalized the shared interests of the West and Iran in fighting ISIS, and introduced themselves as the leading anti-ISIS countries.

Dimensions and Consequences of Saudi's Military Defeat in Yemen

Tuesday 26 May 2015
Alwaght- Attacking Yemen in the recent weeks revealed that Saudi is becoming less and less hopeful to achieve its desired goals in this country because not only the Yemeni army, Ansarullah movement and popular committees did not retreat from their positions, but also they have made significant advances in several eastern and western regions of Yemen. Consequently, Saudi and its allies that made any endeavor to force Ansarullah to retreat from its positions, are now trying to make Ansarullah sit down to the negotiation table and resume talks. Saudi’s shifting stance indicates that it’s looking for a way out of the Yemeni crisis and it seems that Saudi and its allies will agree to end this crisis through the third-party mediation in the near future. Therefore, the developments resulting from Saudi and its allies’ aggression in Yemen will have consequences that can be summarized as follows:

The US policy in Iraq that has been of high priority for the White House is an example of the US wrong policies towards its so-called allies. While, Washington claims that it is supporting Iraq, political experts familiar with Iraq events pint their fingers at the US government as the main reason behind Iraq's havoc.
