For this is the direct recognition that the US cannot be relied upon. For Iran may have never invaded any country for centuries as many will agree, it does not take a neurosurgeon to feel the heat from a "Rising Iran", with a Regime that will make any effort to blindside the US Administration. The recent reports of training Taliban in small arms warfare plus roadside bomb expertise, has a deeper meaning than many realize, since the Taliban are Sunni Muslims, yet the Regime in Iran is Shia. So, the long term survival and cooperation for the Arab League seems to hinge on Iran, thus hoping that the relationship will help close a gap between the two Muslim sects. Actually, its not a bad idea. For many its a nightmare. Especially, for those in the Gulf States. Good night, from snowy Alps.
