War in the young nation has already killed thousands and forced more than 1.5 million people from their homes, and aid agencies warn of the risk of famine should fighting continue.

Vancouver - The fall of the Syrian regime can mark the dissolution of Iranian-Syrian relations, and perhaps the Shiite bloc. The Alawite ruling bloc in the Syrian regime is a minority within the majority Sunni population. This can come with great damage to Iran’s geopolitical sectarian agenda of the survival of the Shiite bloc extending from the Mediterranean Sea (Lebanon) all the way to the Persian Gulf through Syria and Iraq ( Ambrosio 3 ). Saddam Hussein’s collapse saw the country fall in the hands of the Shiite majority. It is for this reason that Iran’s top priority is to see the survival of the Assad regime, predominantly through proxy war. Iranian directives for Hezbollah’s intervention in Syria, their arming of the regime with Iranian and Russian weaponry, and rumors of the Iranian revolutionary guard’s involvement in Syria are all the means through which the Iranians want to ensure the Syrian regime’s survival. Iran sees the Al-Assad’s regime as absolutely pivotal, to the extent that a Shiite Iranian cleric Mehdi Taeb was reported stating that “losing Syria is like losing Tehran,” he also labeled Syria as the 35 th province of Iran. The strong will of the Iranian regime to defend the Syrian regime is one of the many factors that have led to the transition of the initial humanitarian crisis to a sectarian proxy war. Today, the firm stance that the Gulf Monarchies have adopted against Iran’s sectarian position, to which the Assad regime is essential came as a no surprise to the world. Hafez Al Assad, Bashar’s father- supported Iran in the Iraq-Iran war, a move that the Gulf monarchies may have interpreted as offensive. Iranian relations with the Gulf monarchies have always been tense due to historic incidents. The Iranian claim to islands off the coast of the United Arab Emirates have been a source of tension, as well as Iran’s support of the Shiite citizen majority in Bahrain, a member of the Gulf Cooperation council ( Ambrosio 3 ). It is also reported that Iran supported the Yemeni Houti Shiite militias in their clashes with Saudi Arabian forces at the Yemeni-Saudi border. One can argue that Tehran’s stance is purely sectarian in this matter, its hypocrisy with regards to supporting the Shiite majority in Bahrain and the Shiite minority in Syria are strong indicators. Retaliation by the Gulf has always been anticipated by the Shiite bloc, and it appears as though this has been prevalent in the Syrian crisis. The Sunnite bloc of Arab countries does not have aligned interests over this crisis, and this is why I choose to use the “Gulf Monarchies” description (Ambrosio 3). Many predominantly Sunni states in the Arab World have limited involvement beyond verbal, such as North Sudan, Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia, Mauritania and others. However, the Sunnite states Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait, The United Arab Emirates, Jordan and Turkey are deeply involved in financing Military proxies in Syria ( Orlov ). This financing through private donors that set up charities across social media, contribute to the armament and training of these Sunni military proxies. It is reported that many Gulf businessmen were spotted in villages in Turkey nearby to the Syrian border in efforts to donate to charities set up by Sunni proxy militias. It was also reported that venues in Jordanian cities were set up where one is able to recruit Syrian individuals to join proxy fractions. A notable Kuwaiti-sponsored organization named Al-Ummah with 14 offices in different Arab countries set up fundraising events to finance proxy factions in the Syrian crisis. The Kuwaiti founder of the movement sees his interests aligned with Al Qaeda when he described terrorist Osama Bin Laden as a “Lion of Islam”. A recent leaked conversation between Senior Turkish Officials including the prime minister saw them discuss staging a coup that would appear as though Turkey’s sovereignty was violated by the Syrian Army, in order for Turkey to retaliate with a full-on invasion (“ I'll send 4 men from Syria, if that's what it takes. I'll make up a cause of war by ordering a missile attack on Turkey; we can also prepare an attack on Suleiman Shah Tomb if necessary "). Within the conversation, Yasar Guler a core general of the Turkish Army stated “ Qatar is looking for ammo to buy in cash. Ready cash. So, why don't they just get it done? It's at Mr. Minister's command” . In conclusion, the Sunnite bloc sees the Syrian crisis as an unsurpassable opportunity to combat Iranian Shiite influence in the region. There can be many repercussions to follow however, the Syrian crisis is expected to spill over to the region, most notably Lebanon, a country plagued with sectarian tensions. Nonetheless, many political analysts see the United States’ Middle-Eastern interests as fading, yet its role is still considered primary. The United States is a strong ally of many of Syria’s neighbors such as Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, and the most distinguished of those Israel. Iran’s offensive stance towards Israel has long been perceived a threat by the United States, and the country’s desire to develop nuclear weaponry is up to date seen as a big dilemma. Iran was previously dubbed as part of the “Axis of Evil” alongside Iraq and North-Korea by former US president George W. Bush; only for Undersecretary of State Bolton to dub Syria as “Beyond the Axis of Evil.” It was thus clear, that Syria and Iran constitute a threat to the United States’ regional interests in its capacity to harm Israel, the west’s strongest ally in the region. The 2006 Hezbollah-Israel war saw Hezbollah inflict substantial damage upon the Israeli Defense Forces, using Iranian and Russian made weapons. Thus, the United States’ sees it as fundamental to protect the Sunni Bloc of allies, a bloc that can drive change in Israeli – Arab relations and can promote peace and prosperity in the region. It is

WASHINGTON — Three years after midwifing South Sudan's birth, the United States is desperately trying to prevent the world's youngest nation from falling apart. Yet despite shared consternation by the Obama administration and Congress, no one is quite sure what the U.S. can do to bring peace to a country that in many ways owes its existence to the United States. The violence has killed more than 1,000 people and driven 180,000 from their homes in the last month, and spread to neighbors killing each other purely on tribal identification, threatening a place that until recently was viewed by Democrats and Republicans alike as an American success story in Africa.
