Iran is joining the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU). By early next year, Iran will join the five founding members of the Union and open the door for Turkey to do so later in 2018.
Tehran finally joining the EAEU is a response to a number of factors, the most important of which is the continued belligerence by the U.S. Expanded economic sanctions on Iran and the EAEU’s leader Russia has created the need for greater coordination of economic and foreign policy objectives between them.
This is creating new realities in the region that will reshape the world for the next 100 years. Between this and the end of the war in Syria, it’s not hard to declare the Brzezinski Doctrine of U.S.-led Central Asian chaos as gasping its last breaths.
After putting Iran under economic lockdown, and having frozen Russian bank accounts, barring them from interbank communication with customers (SWIFT removal), inducing hyperinflation to sow regime change, Moscow and Tehran should have agreed to allow its ally, Syria, to be handed over to evil Wahabist assassins.
So, now, having assisted Russia and the Syrian Arab Army in defeating ISIS, Iran is making the smart move by further integrating its economy in need of diversification and investment by joining an economic union which should align all of Central Asia’s interests along a similar path.
Chaos no longer. Zbigniew Brzezinski isn’t just dead, his strategy is as well.
Left to the likes of Obama, Hillary Clinton, John McCain and the dimbulbs of the Bush the Lesser administration before them, these buffoons were outplayed at every turn by Vladimir Putin, Chinese Premier Xi Jinping and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani.
And the world will soon be a better place for it! Adding Iran should see the union grow quickly and help facilitate China’s Belt and Road Initiative projects get completed.
Everything about the status quo of the last thirty years is changing. Syria has made it clear to everyone that the USA is no longer infallible. In fact, it is close to incompetent in both militarily and diplomatically.
The Russian intervention exposed the real roots of the conflict as well as the lengths to which our leadership would lie, cheat and steal to achieve its chaotic regional goals.
Iran’s entry into the EAEU as a full member will break open the floodgates of new members into it. Russia has been courting everyone around the region as the EAEU members work on the rules and build the organization.
Iran is charting a new path, turning away from the open wounds in the West and towards the opportunities that lie all about them in every other direction. And Iran joining the EAEU is a strong indicator that it wants to join the larger world economy as a trustworthy actor.
Putin has become the de facto negotiator for those allied against Israel and Trump is stepping up to do so for Israel.
Once that deal is in place and the Washington lobby agrees to remove U.S. military presence in most of the region, then we’ll begin to see what the world can look like without manufactured conflict.
