Dear Dr. Pipes

Reader comment on item: Trump, Iran, and a Fast-Changing Middle East

Submitted by Debanjan Banerjee (India), Nov 17, 2017 at 08:21

Dear Dr. Pipes,

Please let me again state what are the real interests of the US in the West Asian region.

The real interest is to ensure recognition of Israel by all the major powers in the region and once that is achieved there are no reasons for the US to place her armies and navies in the region.

I take this opportunity to present an idea which I feel will be the one that will ensure complete recognition of the Israel.

US should offer to hand over her military and naval bases in the region to Iran and Turkey provided they accept Israel's existence in the region.

In this way there will be no more bloodshed in the region.

What is your opinion on my idea ?

Daniel Pipes replies:

The Turkish and Iranian leaders will accept the deal and then renege on it.
