    There is a western backed regime change process rapidly unfolding in Iran in the forms of targeted assassinations and color revolution. Our ties with Iran have been far from being on the same page since birth in 1947. Iran's foreign policies involving Afghanistan and India have not been in line with ours as these two neighbors in the east and west are the most strategically crucial factor for the very survival of the state of Pakistan.
    The big question is if the Islamic regime falls in Iran and it is replaced by a pro West secular regime, how it is going to impact our strategic interests. Are we going to see an Iranian Modi in our western frontier?

    Wasn’t the Shah more balanced than the current ‘Islamic‘ regime?

    That was a cold war situation. The world has changed lot since then. Even USA left Shah high and dry in the end. A pro West Iran is more likely to be pro India than it is now.

    This is what i posted in another thread you are right any western sponsored Regime change would be disastrous for us. Iranians need to get rid of Hardliners and open up.

    Post-Islamic Iran like pre-post-Islamic Iran wouldn't give a shit about Pakistan. You have nothing to worry about.

    Secular Iranians are far more imperialists than the religious ones. Above all , the religious Iranians always take the Shia population in Pakistan into considerations which will become a non issue for secular Iranians.

    Pro-western Iran will house US forces in a future confrontation between the US and Pakistan.

    Exactly ! That is why it is worrying. A person who wouldn't give a damn about his neighbor, is a dangerous neighbor indeed. Iran will never go back to the Shah era. It will head towards Natanyahu-Trump-Modi directions.

    How? What's wrong with them minding their own business? In the worst case scenario they would concentrate on what's west of their border like the IRI regime does. It's about time for you to mind your own business and concentrate on economic development as well. In case you haven't realized, you guys are lagging behind badly.

    Look it really depends. I would say, if Iranian system changes into a more Persian nationalistic one, the people that should be very worried are the Persian gulf arabs. Even though the current Iranian regime is no friend to the saudis, they still don't see the saudis as people as enemies (they see the saudi family as enemies), whereas a nationalistic Iranian regime will. Also, remember that a nationalistic Iranian regime will be very close to the Americans, West and the Israelis.

    But I still don’t understand how anyone can be certain a ‘new’ Iran would be pro Western? What would Saudi think of that? They would worry that if that were to happen then a pro-West Iran would become the new ally and Saudi could be dumped. Similarly China & Russia would be enormously sidelined under a pro West Iran. In a multi polar world it could in many directions.

    Any regime change will cause serious civil war in Iran most probably which might tear it.
