ABSTRACT
In this article the author examines the position of the states of the Persian Gulf in light of Iranian ambitions in the region. At issue is the support voiced by the administration of U.S. president Barack Obama for the Gulf Security Dialogue while seeking to engage with Iran, which the author states represents the greatest threat to peace in the area. Among other issues the article examines the transhipment of oil through the Straits of Hormuz and the impact that fact has on the conduct of U.S. foreign policy.
