UAE and Israel Reach Peace Agreement
« on: August 13, 2020, 09:45:16 AM »
I don't know if this is a huge deal but I do believe it is a step in the right direction for peace in the Middle East.  We will have to see what happens with other countries in that region.

I guess the UAE did not want important industrial sites to start exploding across their country too.  :crazy2:

Good point. The UAE didn't want the UAV's to start showing-up.  ;D   Of course Iran won't be too pleased, but what does make them happy these days?

If they made nothing but WWII games, I'd be perfectly content.  Hypothetical matchups from alternate history 1980s, asymmetrical US-bashes-some-3rd world guerillas, or minor wars between Upper Bumblescum and outer Kaboomistan hold no appeal for me.

Technically we were never at war with the UAE, it was never considered an enemy nation.
It's more like a normalization of relationship treaty than a peace treaty, but still, IMHO, a big deal.

Hopefully the UAE leader doesn’t get the Anwar Sadat treatment.

I'm sure part of their rationale were the UAVs that started showing up from Iran already. ;)

Iran was already making some loud noises about having control of both sides of the Persian Gulf, one way or another.

Hopefully the UAE leader doesn’t get the Anwar Sadat treatment.

Good point. The UAE is pretty open to foreign operation within its borders in some ways, particularly for business purposes, but socially they can be pretty conservative by Muslim standards -- which doesn't bode well for agreeing to a peace with Israel. (Even though as noted the UAE wasn't at war with Israel exactly.)

I hope this leads to some other Muslim nations being more friendly to Israel and vice versa. Obviously some aren't going to take that path (not at this time anyway), but the potentiality alone makes this a big deal.

Now we'll see whether Trump gets nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize. I have a hard time believing the Nobel Committee would award it, but he deserves more than just a nomination for this.

Considering what a complete BS the Nobel Prize for Peace thing is, why would anyone really care?
