New middle east Project and redrawing of borders

The term "New Middle East" was introduced to the world in June 2006 in Tel Aviv by U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.

What is the New Middle East Project?
The New Middle East project, which had been conceptualised and in the planning stages for several years, consists in creating an arc of instability, chaos, and violence extending from Lebanon, Palestine, and Syria to Iraq, the Persian Gulf, Iran, and the borders of NATO-garrisoned Afghanistan.It was introduced publicly by Washington and Israel in 2006. Its aim is the unleashing of forces of "constructive chaos" which generates conditions of violence and warfare throughout the region- would in turn be used so that the United States, Britain, and Israel could redraw the map of the Middle East in accordance with their geo-strategic needs and objectives. Its final envisaged conclusion is the 'balkanisation'(division)and finlandization (pacification)of the Middle East. It will also enable easier American entry into Central Asia where the ex-Soviet Republics like Azerbaijan,Uzbekistan,Turkmenistan,Georgia,Tajikistan and others are situated.

The concept of a redrawn Middle East has been presented as a "humanitarian" and "righteous" arrangement that would benefit the people of the Middle East and its peripheral regions.(so say the know-it-alls)

How is this Project being implemented?
Many of the problems affecting the contemporary Middle East are the result of the deliberate aggravation of pre-existing regional tensions. Sectarian division, ethnic tension and internal violence have been traditionally exploited and fostered by the Anglo-American Governments in various parts of the globe including Africa, Latin America, the Balkans, and the Middle East.Israeli agenda is taken into consideration in aggravations in the Arab world. Long-standing economic, strategic and military objectives are hoped to be realised with this redrawing of the mid-east boundaries.

NATO-garrisoned Afghanistan has been successfully divided, all but in name. Animosity has been inseminated in the Levant, where a Palestinian civil war is being nurtured and divisions in Lebanon agitated. The Eastern Mediterranean has been successfully militarized by NATO. Syria and Iran are in imminent danger of being pre-emptively struck.Israel has recently tested Syrian airspace with its bombers making sorties there. The ethnic populations of Iraq cannot co-exist and there is widespread domestic strife between Shiites, Sunnis and Kurds.

As long back as 2003, on the eve of the Iraq invasion, Syrian President had warned the arab world that the US had initiated a roadmap to redraw the borders of the Middle East starting with Iraq. Events there have now proved to us that Iraq has been put into a mindless chaos with sectarian interests and being exploited for its energy resources. The 'oil law' which is in the making is proof enough of that.
According to Damascus the capture of the two Israeli soldiers was merely used as a justification for the bombardment of Lebanon in 2006 by Israel and used as a “trump card” for a pre-planned war.Condoleezza Rice, triumphantly declared that the bombardment of Lebanon was the “birth pangs of a new Middle East”.

What does the redrawn map show?
Iraq with its three Sunni-majority provinces would be a truncated state that might eventually choose to unify with a Syria that loses its littoral to a Mediterranean-oriented Greater Lebanon. The Shia south of old Iraq would form the basis of an Arab Shia State rimming much of the Persian Gulf. Jordan would retain its current territory, with some southward expansion at Saudi expense. For its part, the unnatural state of Saudi Arabia would suffer as great a dismantling as Pakistan.A part of it consisting of its holy places would become a different state and a southeastern quadrant would go to Yemen. Confined to a rump Saudi Homelands Independent Territory around Riyadh, the House of Saud would be incapable of exerting its current considerable influence.

Iran would lose a great deal of territory to Unified Azerbaijan, Free Kurdistan, the Arab Shia State and Free Baluchistan, but would gain the provinces around Herat in today's Afghanistan — a region with a historical and linguistic affinity for Persia. Iran would, in effect, become an ethnic Persian state again.

What Afghanistan would lose to Persia in the west, it would gain in the east, as Pakistan's Northwest Frontier tribes would be reunited with their Afghan brethren.Pakistan,would also lose its Baluch territory to Free Baluchistan. The remaining "natural" Pakistan would lie entirely east of the Indus, except for a westward spur near Karachi.

The city-states of the United Arab Emirates would have a mixed fate — as they probably will in reality. Some might be incorporated in the Arab Shia State ringing much of the Persian Gulf (a state more likely to evolve as a counterbalance to, rather than an ally of, Persian Iran).Kuwait would remain within its current borders, as would Oman.
