GRIFFITH Chrlttlaa Sconce Mwitor Although we have not yet seen a new Persian we are not far from it. Iran now is one of the great military powers in the Middle rivaled .only by Israel and Turkey. Its immense and growing oil revenues and purposeful development policy produced very rapid economic growth. It has replaced the British as the hegemonic power in the Persian Gulf. It has adjusted to Soviet U.S. detente by improving its relations with the Soviet thus making Soviet pressure on it and all out Soviet support for Iraq less likely. It has good relations with Saudi Arabia and therefore profited from rising Saudi power. Egypt's 1967 Nasser's and the isolation of Iran's and Saudi Arabia's common also helped Iran's position. It has become the protector of Pakistan. the Shah's autocratic although in the long run threatened by lack of popular participation and rising subversion and acquiesced in a rising bourgeoisie in the landed as well as by a wave of Iranian nationalism. Iran's rising power spreads east as well as west and south. For the first 'time since the British left India in the traditional interrelationship between the Middle East and the Indian subcontinent has been reestablished. This the center of power in the Middle East is not as under the British in Delhi but as in Mogul times in Iran. Policy primarily defensive The Shah sees Iranian foreign policy as primarily defensive. His main objective is to keep open the Straits of the entry into the Persian so that Iranian oil can flow through it unhampered and thereby bring in funds for economic development. He sees Iran threatened by a Soviet directed pincers. The first to the is Afghan expansionism and the independence movements in Pakistan's north and Pushtunistan and Baluchistan. is a multinational with Baluchis in its Kurds and Azerbaidjanis to the north and Arab speakers in Khuzhistan to the The second prong .is Soviet territorially revisionist vis-a-vis Iran and Iraq is Iran's rival for hegemony in the gulf. The third is the Dhofar rebellion in western via by the Soviets. who want good relations with anti Soviet no longer support the rebellion. The Shah last year sent a small force of helicopters and at Sultan Qabas's to fight the Dhofar who have recently suffered some Massive arms purchase The Shah therefore has begun massive arms purchases primarily from the and a major base contraction program. he will not automatically intervene against any rebellion in'a gulf but only if he is invited which is neither certain nor even necessarily likely. He will guarantee Pakistan's which has made him and his U.S. ally highly suspect to the who see themselves thereby deprived of some of the fruits of their 1971 victory over Pakistan. India's alliance with his main and its oil purchases from and small air force training mission in his main Arab make the Shah's suspicions as the 1973 war the Shah has moderated his previous de pro Israeli in view of King Faisal's policy of bringing pressure on Israel via the United for public support of the Arab position. For the Shah realizes that if Israel were again totally to defeat the some of the conservative regimes in the gulf might be overthrown and he could do little about it. Yet Iran refused to participate in the Arab oil production preferring rather to lead the drive to push up oil from which it will profit greatly. William E.
