Unless I am seriously mistaken, this meeting is a major setback for the John Bolton view of "the direction" of history in the ME. These countries are supposed to be obeying Bolton's rules of international order in which peoples and governments are easily manipulated through intimidation and/or bribes to line up neatly into blocs that are on one side stooges of the US and on the other implacable and deadly enemies who must be pursued across all the world's oceans until they "spout black blood and roll fin out." They can then be added to the US controlled blocs.
Perhaps I have missed something here but these folks do not appear to be playing their assigned roles. pl
