provide Iran with an excellent geopolitical position, while Iran's "ant
domination policy" not only deprive it from these privileges but also
bring some serious security challenges for it. U.S. engagement in vast
economic, military and political undertakings in this region is one of major
threat for Iran's vital interests. I'm going to argue here that major
difficulty in the way of consisting some firm regional security coalitions and
organizations, which in its turn relates to discrepancy in powers of nation
states of the region, entails calling non regional powers to the region. U.S.
effort to isolate Islamic republic of Iran is one of consequences of non-regional
western power presence in the region.
