It is said that yesterday is better than today , and today is better than tomorrow, but what is happening today?, and what will tomorrow bring? And how are the gulf states reacting to the tension between Iran , and Israel? The GCC states are seeing that the regions becoming increasingly militarized and that the rhetoric is rising very quickly ,the GCC states themselves are recognized in the fact that a military confrontation between Israel and Iran is a possibility although it may seem remote for now.
As for the Position of Gulf states on Iran's atomic energy program Dr Theodore Karasik stated that "It is known for a fact based on the Wikileaks that in 2010 ,that the GCC states were very concerned about Iran's nuclear program and exactly what's on going in Tehran's mind." currently the GCC states are pursuing their own ways and measures to counter the potential of an Iranian nuclear weapon capability which includes purchasing nuclear weapons from other countries and including weapons systems. Dr. Theodore Karasik also stated that we are at an all time high in terms of military presence in the region and it's only going to grow stronger. However in the case of a potential impact of a military attack on Iran's atomic energy program, it seems to hardly happen as all diplomatic measures are still being taken
Regardless of the gulf states position towards the tension that is going on between Iran and Israel, about Iran's atomic energy program, it is the sad province of man that he cannot choose his moments of triumph, only when the call of destiny arrives, because the past is something that is done for, the future is unpredictable, but the present is always happening, for today's present and until tomorrow,
