EXACTLY HOW THE ALLIANCE IS SUPPOSED TO WORK:

AP Interview: Qatar foreign minister calls for 'serious dialogue' with Iran after nuclear deal (ADAM SCHRECK, 8/04/15, Associated Press)

The Gulf states have welcomed the deal despite deep-seated mistrust of Iran, a non-Arab, Shiite power that they see as increasingly assertive across the Middle East.

Al-Attiyah said a "firm agreement between the major players and Iran" was the best way to resolve the nuclear issue. And he suggested there was now scope to work with Iran on other topics too.

"We should have a serious dialogue with our neighbor, the Iranians, and ... lay down our concerns from both sides, and solve them together. Iran is our neighbor in the region," he said.

With the US/Iran alliance formalized, you'd better be scared when 10% of your population is oppressed Shi'a.
