I've been following these past few days the ongoing protest in Iran and how will it completely unfold in the end. Will there be a rigime change in Iran and will the protesters continue to defy the rule of their Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei? It has been said that the root cuase of the Iran portest is due to its failing economy, graft and corruption and the continuing rise of fuel and food prices. While on the other hand, the recent news that the US will withold 255 million dollars aid to Pakistan and that the said country is "playing a double game for years": working with the US government at times while at the same time allegedly harboring terrorist that attack American troops. What will be the effect of withholding of 255 million dollars to Pakistan by the US? Is Pakistan indeed playing a "double game" to the US? How will the recent events in Iran and Pakistan affect International Peace and Order in the long run? Picture credit: newsrepublica.com

Is the US punishing Pakistan for voting in favor of the UN Jerusalem resolution? Why is the US not condemning Saudi Arabia who also voted for the resolution and has long been funding terrorist activities? Iran, China and Russia are trying to break the US-Saudi petro-dollar stranglehold in the global oil market by encouraging other countries to trade in petro-yuan. If that happens there will be a drastic devaluation of US economic and military power around the world.
