GULF STATES: ENFORCERS OF OLIGARCHIC ‘CLASH OF CIVILIZATION’ MADNESS
Erle Frayne D. Argonza
Magandang gabi! Good evening!
Dusk is the mark of the day as I write this note. I wish to continue writing on the
theme of Arab gulf states—whether
they’re Asian or not. It seems that the ‘twilight of the gods’ scenario has
been engulfing the gulf states
altogether, a sort of reprieve prior to Armageddon.
For this piece, I’d focus on the observation that the Arab gulf states are the enforcers of the Anglo-European
oligarchy’s ‘clash of civilizations’ madness. There has been so much military
build-up in the gulf states
lately, proof of a preparation for a larger conflagration. (The expenditure
level measures by the hundreds of billions of dollars, with KSA leading the
hemorrhage of military hardware buying spree.)
East Asia, as we can see, has been operating on the modality of a ‘dialogue of cultures’ expressed as economic, political,
and cultural cooperation. The entire region has been the growth driver of the
global economy for some time now, and will perform such an optimizer role in
the foreseeable future.
Such a trend, however, does not characterize the gulf states. Already filthy rich with their
petrodollars, they nonetheless aren’t progenitors of growth driving for the
global economy. They grow for the sake of sustaining their own development
gains and prepare themselves for the eventual drying up of the oil wells.
Gulf economies’ billionaire are deeply encumbered to the financier operations of the
Anglo-European oligarchs who have been using the former as their dummies and/or
junior partners. There is hardly any big commercial and industrial concern in
the gulf states
today that are not immersed in the investment interests of the likes of George
Soros & cronies who represent the Who Is Who in the West.
Arab sheikhs style themselves in fact as Western-honed leaders who are no different
from their Western counterparts. The difference lies only in the sheikhs’
profession of Islam, an ultra-conservatism that the West allowed to thrive to
render the sheikhdoms as buffer regions versus pan-Arab nationalism or
pan-Arabism of the Iraq, Syria,
Lybia, and Nasserite Egypt.
Pan-Arabism is now rapidly decaying, and so the polarity game has shifted to Shiite Islam
as the key enemy in lieu of the former. The Arab kings and sheikhs are surely
having a great time nurturing hatreds versus the ayatollahs of Persia
whom they demonize with deep disdain.
Back home, the sheikhdoms have to neutralize their homegrown jihadist movements led
by the Al Qaida. While the home enemy grows in size and intensity of terror,
tension grows as the sheikhs can’t help on anticipating the attacks by the
revolutionary guards of Persia,
attacks that may be accompanied by limited nuclear weaponry.
The situation in the gulf region had pushed the sheikhs into a toxic alliance with
the Zionists who are the other leg in the beachhead of the Anglo-European
oligarchy in regaining control of the entire Western Asia.
A loose Zionist-Sunni (gulf states’
ecclesial religion) alliance has been in formation since couples of years back
yet, to recall.
In my own analysis, it is now too late to see the possibility of the sheikhs
dis-engaging from their active participation in the polarity game of the West’s
oligarchy. The sheikhs and Arab billionaires are an organic part of that
oligarchy while they feign difference via Sunni wahabism or equivalents. A
superficial difference that is, to note.
The clock now ticks for the gulf states,
an Armageddon clock that could unleash the forces of destruction in the region.
And such a clock will continue to tick, unless a paradigm shift will be initiated
by the sheikhs & Arab billionaires which is nauseatingly impossible an
eventuality at this moment.
