LONDON: The Persian Gulf Cultural Club in London held an event, discussing the prospects of both war and peace in the Middle East considering the current hostilities in the region due to US-Iran tensions.
The conference was held open to the public, hosting a number of speakers with different specialities, to enlighten those attending to the nature of the situation the region is facing following the Trump administrations illegal assassination of General Qassem Soleimani.
With 2020 kicking off with so much turmoil, in the Middle East, after the illegal assassination of Qassem Soleimani, a number conferences have taken place around Britain and in specific in London, to talk about the impacts that Trump’s move has made on the Middle East, with this one discussing and trying to educate the public on what has happened and where the Middle East is going.
Included in the discussions which took place, was the role of the US’s declining economy and the motivations behind their military miscreancy. With the biggest question being how those in the West can organize, prepare for potential escalations and mobilize against war.
The speakers warned that following Iran’s response to the US’s targeted assassination of its most beloved General, that the situation may seem to have calmed down, yet is still fragile and urged people to stay alerted for further tensions.
With the perceived aggressive US maximum pressure policy directed towards Iran, the US’s unilateral withdrawal from the JCPOA agreement, along with the tense calm inside of Iraq as US forces seemingly refuse to withdrawal and with Israeli airstrikes infringing upon Syrian sovereign territory, it seems that much more may be to come in the Middle-East and conferences discussing the situation are important now more than ever.
