Middle East: For these reasons, Riyadh can not go to war with Tehran
TEHRAN (Reuters) - Saudi Arabia will not be able to fight a war against Iran for military and diplomatic reasons, including the recent defeats in the kingdom, including the war on the Huthis, as well as the resignation of Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri, .
"The conflict between Saudi Arabia and Iran was not the result of the current circumstances, it is a conflict for decades and even before the advent of the Islamic Revolution because of the ideological and sectarian differences between the two regional powers," Bharavash said in an article on the Middle East Internet site. "The geopolitical rivalry between them is not Even before the 1979 revolution, which led to the establishment of the Islamic Republic, the Arab world was widely viewed as a regional competitor by Iran under the leadership of Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, except that Iran, at the time, had strong relations with the United States and Israel "He said.
He explained that the evidence provided by US Ambassador to the United Nations, Nicky Healy, on the launch of the Houthis missile at King Khalid Airport in Riyadh, another proof of how the spread of tensions between Tehran and Riyadh on the international scene, when it offered "rebounds" "H-2 volcano" ballistic.
He pointed out that "when the organization launched a terrorist attack in Tehran on June 7, the Iranian intelligence agencies and leaders immediately blamed Saudi Arabia for this atrocity." In response, the Iranian Revolutionary Guard fired missiles against the sites of Dahesh in the Syrian province of Deir al-Zour in 18 June in a warning to Riyadh.
"The Saudi-led military intervention in Yemen is far from achieving its stated goals - defeating the Huthis and returning Yemeni President Abd Rabbo Mansour Hadi to power - despite three years of intense operations, another obstacle in the way of a Saudi war with Iran," Bharavsh said.

This would affect global oil supplies and send waves From shock to different global energy markets.
"Finally, Saudi Arabia can not wage a winning war with Iran because its strong regional allies and Westerners, especially Israel and the United States, are not prepared to make great sacrifices on their behalf as long as their strategic objectives are not directly endangered," he concluded.
