The Consequences in the Middle East
In Syria, Bashar al-Assad will consider himself completely unrestrained in the use of any means athis disposal to defeat the Sunni jihadists attempting to depose him. Not that this civil war can getmuch more savage, but expect to see more employment of chemical weapons to clear Sunni jihadist-held urban strong points. Russian President Vladimir Putin will be even less mindful of
Obama‟s entreaties and „resets‟ as he continues his military support of Assad‟s regime, while Iranwill redouble the military and economic support of their Syrian proxies as Obama‟s „brave retreat‟
opens a clear path to victory and the establishment of a solidly Shia Levant.In Egypt, General Abdel Fattah el-Sisi and the Egyptian Army will likewise consider themselves
free to mercilessly crush the Muslim Brotherhood. Obama‟s „brave retreat‟ will signal to the
Egyptian General Staff they need not concern themselves about any blowback from Obama asthey run to ground Mohamed Morsi and the rest of Muslim Brotherhood leadership.In the Persian Gulf, the Saudi Sunnis and the rest of the Gulf Sunni Arabs will consider themselves on notice that they cannot count on Obama to be their defender in their deadly faceoff with their Iranian Shia rivals. As a result, as the Iranian mullahs near completion of their nuclear weapons development program, expect the Saudi Sunnis t

as the signal that they can stop pretending the economic sanctions and nuclear negotiations willdissuade Iran from nuclear weapons acquisition.
Obama‟s „brave retreat‟ from America‟s super power role as world peace mediator and custodian
has set off an existential race between Iran and Israel. Iran is sprinting toward nuclear weaponsdevelopmental completion, while the Israelis are racing to finalize preemptive attack preparations.
