“Now don’t get the idea that Saudi Arabia is going to scale back arming Jihadists in Syria. They’re going to scale back not arming Jihadists.”

  1. #6 I saw this on PJ Media. I thought it was a joke. It is a done deal so no use worrying about it.

    Two Items.

    1. Obama said he was going to reset our relationships with people around the world for the better. He has failed. He has made them worse. Will Obama finally get the blame for something
    instead of looking like an innocent bystander?

    2. A poster at PJ Media said the American dollar’s status was in part or large part do to the Petro-Dollar agreement we had with Saudi Arabia. This not outlandish but the truth.

    Did Obama read them the riot act about funding terrorists including Al Qaeda? Or did Obama not jump when they said Simon says?

  2. #5 The headline is missleading. Nowhere in the article does it say Saudi Arabia is cutting diplomatic ties to the US in general. It does say that they want to go their own way as far as Syria, the Palestinian issue* and Iran are concearned.

    They say they MIGHT alter their relationship in other ways but that is just a threat.

    Hmph. You can’t lift a finger in that region without pissing everyone off either way. They hate you if you do one thing and then they hate you for doing the opposite. I say just let the Euro jihadis keep streaming into the country then switch sides and moab them. Oh, and paint a picture of Private Lee Rigby on every moab.

    Could be that Saudi Arabia is trying to flex it’s muscles more overtly in the region. Competing publicly with Turkey and Iran and so want to appear to be less connected to the US.

    If we more overtly side with the Syrian rebels it will damage nuke talks with Iran. But Iran would use nuke talks as a carrot to make us not want to more overtly assist the Syrian rebels.

    The question is who is really wielding the carrot to manipulate the other. Is it the US or is it Iran or is it both? I think this is one of those diplomatic things nobody wants anyone to really understand. (that’s an observation, not an endorsement)

    *That’s just generic boilerplate and propognada for arab consumption, no arab nations really care about the palestinian issue- they hate Israel but don’t care about the Palestinians so don’t have enough motivation to do anything about it.

  3. #2 A lot of vets are worried about the purge, it reminds people of Hitlers purge of the German Officer Corp and Stalin purging the Soviet Officer Corp.

    #6 This should read that they are going to start openly arming al Qaeda, they have been funneling money and weapons to them on the quite for a long time.

  4. Red I am betting it was caused by Obama and Kerry not attacking Assad, they backed down because of internal political pressure but the Saudi’s don’t care they have paid their money and want action.
