The Gulf Cooperation Council is actually a gathering of conspirators that was established to undermine the Islamic Republic. It has failed miserably.
The Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) was never a credible organization. It was born in conspiracy against the Islamic Republic of Iran. It would be more appropriate to call it the Gulf Conspiracy Council. After all, what can its member-states do? Almost all depend on the US and Britain for security and protection. The two predatory powers extract maximum benefit from them. In most of these statelets, the labor force is made up of poor workers from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka or the Philippines. They are ruthlessly exploited.
