When I read about this warning from Iran's parliamentary speaker Ali Larijani saying that the country will not forgive Gulf Arab nations if they continue backing US "plots" against them, it got me feeling rather amused. Incomprehensible.

What is their right to warn another soverignity on what to do and not to do?
How can you ask a nation to give up their government political decision just because you warn  and threathen of consequences in the surrounding region if the GCCs plots against their nation continues.

Ali Larijani was referring to the generous financial aid and political support provided by Gulf Arab states, namely Kuwait and Saudi Arabia, to the Iraqi regime during the 1980-1988 war against Iran. But he must know that there surely would be some kickbacks for the supports given. No?

The ever going strained ties between Shiite-dominated Iran and Sunni-majority Saudi Arabia deteriorated after Saudi-led troops intervened in Sunni-ruled Bahrain in March last year help the government there crush Shiite-led pro-democracy protests.

Obviously the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) had told Iran to "stop interfering in the internal affairs" of their nations.

Who would liketo be told to do this and that isn't it?.....
