What is this article talking about the dictatorship of saudi arabia for??? Certainly the world knows the dictatorship of saudi arabia is controlled by the american government and israel and has been for decades.The world also knows that saudi arabia has been funding terrorist in Syria and Libya and even sending terrorist from saudi arabia to Syria.The best thing for the people of saudi arabia would be to remove their jewish slave king/dictator and retake their country and its wealth once and for all.There are REAL protest often in saudi arabia but they are not covered by the jewish controlled ameican media.

It is a war with anything that is logical , now I am no fan of the Syrian regime, but any place where I find GCC countries heavily involved politically I know it is the arm of America playing

This article is voicing an opinion of the Saudi government, the same as can be said for China or Russia or the US they all have opinions.

Of course Salafi Arabia would say such a thing. They are engaged in a proxy war with Iran and use their energy supply influence and lip-service to U.S. Israeli policy to dictate western foreign policy, yet their schools still fail to show Israel on their maps.

BTW: They both have the death penalty for blasphemy.

I disagree. I believe it's the Saudi tail wagging the American dog.

The last time the Saudis showed their true colors to the West was in 1972, when they shut down their pipelines over Palestine. Since then, they have managed to slither their way with fistloads of cash into American political circles almost as effectively as the Jewish lobby. LOL

Look at history. There were two major oil shocks to the world. One in 1972 by S. Arabia and one in 1979 by Iran.

We prostituted ourselves to one (just ask Bush) and now must pay the piper by joining in a proxy war against the other.

Is this any way for a superpower to behave?
hmmm

And this once again brings us to one of the central issues of the Middle East, Palestine - one of the few common denominators between the Sunni and Shia.

Instead of acting like a true superpower and strongly pushing for a two-state final resolution, Washington prefers to act like the little Dutch boy and stick its finger into the Middle Eastern dike, preferring to side with a regional player that feigns cooperation, and all that it entails including fighting its proxy wars, albeit reluctantly.

Cow towing to misplaced Israeli and Saudi interests, in a juggling act ultimately doomed to failure is NO way for a superpower to behave.
