1. INTRODUCTION This paper is going to examine the role of Iran before and after Islamic revolution in the security arrangements of the Persian Gulf. With Britain's withdrawal from Persian Gulf area in 1971, the U.S actively sought to establish a new security system to fill the power vacuum in the region. This policy has remained based on the firm belief that Western (indeed global) prosperity is tied to the security of oil supplies from the Persian Gulf. Nixon's Doctrine, Carter's Doctrine, and Clinton's Doctrine, are some of the security systems that were formulated for this region mainly to protect oil resources from any aggressive actions; but evidences and historical facts show neither of these security arrangements considered Iran's demands as a main part of this agreements.
