Quietly, GCC Agrees To Effort Against Iran

Middle East Newsline:
The Gulf Cooperation Council has quietly agreed to help the United States in efforts to destabilize Iran. Western diplomatic sources said the six-member GCC has agreed to participate in a U.S. campaign against Iran's nuclear weapons program. The sources said several Gulf Arab countries would be used for a range of non-combat operations against the Iranian regime.

"The activities will be subtle and designed to avoid a direct link to the Gulfies," a diplomatic source said. "With the support of the GCC, the United States will completely surround Iran."

The sources said the GCC effort would involve significant participation from such countries as Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. They said GCC countries could be used for U.S. intelligence, psychological operations and surveillance in southern Iran, particularly its maritime.
