As if Saudi Arabia weren’t oppressive and repressive enough under the sharia ….. it is getting worse, as whole regions in the world get swallowed up by barbaric Islamic supremacism.
The heir to the Saudi throne is a brutal devout Muslim and an unequivocal supporter of the most radical and extreme ideology on the face of the earth, the sharia. We thought the lashings (for, among other things, defying the driving ban on women) and the amputations (for thievery) under the sharia in Saudi Arabia were horrible, but it appears that these will be considered the years of reform in comparison to what’s coming.
A shadow has darkened prospects for democratic reform in Saudi Arabia with the announcement that the most envied, loathed, and feared man in the country is now heir to the throne. Unless the present king, the elderly and ailing Abdullah, outlives him, the newly named Crown Prince Nayef – himself in his late 70s – is likely to preside over an even more repressive kingdom than Saudi Arabia already is today.
There is barely a day that passes without the drone-like reminder that the world we now live in is riddled with the carnage left by the blood lusting and demonically influenced hordes in our midst. One would think that after 10 years of studying and fighting this enemy, we might actually have a firm understanding of him and have determined how best to defeat him.
The Taliban: not so bad?
We certainly should have been able to determine what doesn’t work.
Instead, we unilaterally placed a “governor” on our force projection which presumed to increase trust and goodwill amongst the Afghan population by reducing civilian casualties. In so doing, we necessarily extended the need for US forces there into perpetuity. And we did this based on a faulty presumption; that the average Afghan did not agree – to greater degree, with the Taliban. It also almost by necessity assumes then that the average Afghan does not see us as anything other than good people coming to the rescue.

The continuing unrest in Syria is turning the country into another battleground in the regional competition between Saudi Arabia and Iran. Syria and Iran have long been allies; were a Sunni Arab regime with closer ties to Riyadh to take the place of the Alawite minority-led government in Damascus, the loss to Tehran’s regional influence would be profound. While Saudi Arabia has not actively sought to topple the Syrian regime, Syria’s present crisis presents an opportunity for Saudi Arabia to turn back the gains Iran has made since 2003 — though Tehran can be expected to put considerable resources toward ensuring the Syrian regime’s survival.

Saudi King Abdullah with Syrian President Bashar al Assad (L), and Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad with al Assad
As the uprising against Syrian President Bashar al Assad’s regime enters its fifth month, the Syrian government has escalated its crackdown, with tanks besieging the restive city of Hama on July 31 and Syrian forces killing at least 200 people over the course of the ensuing four days, according to media reports. Political reform initiatives offered by the al Assad regime have failed to quell the unrest, and the government’s heavy use of force in the face of mounting casualties has pressured international stakeholders to address the situation.

When one gives this some thought it makes perfect sense and the U.S. would welcome this as well. With the current administration none of these countries have a clue what Obama might do with the exception of nothing to prevent a nuclear Iran and potential holocaust of unimaginable proportions.
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it, I’m J.C and I approve this message.

Iran’s biggest enemy among the Arabs is bin Zayed, Abu Dhabi’s crown prince and a key figure in the Emirates. In his talks with members of the Obama administration, he compared the current situation with conditions in Europe shortly before World War II, and Tehran’s show of power with that of Saddam Hussein in 1990, shortly before his invasion of Kuwait. Bin Zayed, like most other rulers in the region, believed that the attempt to have a dialogue with the Iranians would fail.
“Iran was already acting like a nuclear power,” he told the US deputy energy secretary, “Iran is establishing ‘emirates’ across the Muslim world, including South Lebanon and Gaza, sleeper ‘emirates’ in Kuwait and Bahrain, and the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia, the mother of all ‘emirates’ in Southern Iraq, and now Saada in Yemen.”
The crown prince believes “‘all hell will break loose’ if Iran attains the bomb, with Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Syria and Turkey developing their own nuclear weapons capability and Iran instigating Sunni-Shia conflict throughout the world,” the Americans wrote after the conversation with the sheikh. “MbZ described a near term conventional war with Iran as clearly preferable to the long-term consequences of a nuclear armed Iran.”

This reporter received a call from a friend today with a heads up from two people with connections about this event. The concern was the Iranians might intend to actually attack Saudi Arabia.
This does not seem likely as it would bring worldwide condemnation, immediate military operations to crush Iran’s repressive totalitarian regime.
With the recent news that Iran appears to be two months away from having weapons grade material it would seem that it would lead to an attack by the US by air taking out as many nuke sites as possible with Daisy Cutters then following with a land assault that would be joined with millions of Iranian dissidents who would fight with the military to topple the mullahs .
The US should long for the relationship we had with Iran before Jimmy Carter arranged to have the Shaw overthrown leading to the Iranian Revolution and the U.S. Embassy hostage crisis.

Iranian submarines have entered the Red Sea as part of a mission to identify other nations’ military vessels and collect information about the seabed, the state-run Fars news agency reported, citing an unidentified official.
The submarines came from the Gulf of Aden, where they were dispatched in May, according to today’s report by Fars, which didn’t specify the number of vessels involved. A Pentagon spokesman in Washington, Marine Corps Colonel David Lapan, confirmed the deployment without additional details.
The submarines were sailing next to ships from the Iranian Navy’s 14th Fleet, which includes the destroyer Shahid Naghdi, Fars said. The fleet was sent to the Gulf of Aden in May to protect Iran’s cargo ships and oil tankers from attacks by Somali pirates, Fars said.

‘Thoughts on Syrian Politics and Islam’
One does not celebrate a victory by planting one’s flag on the soil of the enemy unless he is occupying that land or intends to occupy it. If the Mosque is to be built in New York next to Ground Zero
, then we might as well move Iwo Jima Memorial to Japan.
Some 25 years ago, I met at the infamous Le Fouqet in Paris with a Saudi national businessman who was very close to the al-Saud. It was a business meeting but because of few drinks the Saudi had, the conversation quickly turned to politics. Knowing I held a US passport as well as a Saudi one, he had a message for the US: Saudi Arabia will become the most powerful country and we will conquer all lands.
