If the question posed is whether Arab culture and genetics doom them as a viable military machine, then the answer is a resounding "YES."
I have had experience working with Iranian technical maintenance personnel. It is amazing they ever get anything fixed at all. They have no notion of causality. They go for the fix that is easiest to get to, whether it fits the symptoms or not. When you try to take them down a logical pathway of how the problem should have been addressed, you end up either in an argument at the top of your lungs, or trying to find your way through some sort of mysticism about how the world works. The only enemy Arabs could defeat has to be other Arabs.
