If Obama's incoherence and naiveté caused him to completely fail in the USA's foreign relations in the Middle East, and explicitly retreat, then Iran, Turkey and Russia will obviously fill the void, while Arab dictatorships implode. The warning was Iran 2009, but went unheeded: Twitter and mobiles reshaped the world, and wikileaks -another contribution of the USA- made its cooperation with the revolutionary flare-ups with no certain outcome yet. Iran is no doubt emboldened, and that's not good news for the entire world, except for Khamenei, Nasrallah, Meshaal and the other Iranian proxies.
