Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman and US Defense Secretary James Mattis are both in denial at their respective regimes’ failures.   While not many who analyze events in Syria and the Saudi exploits in the murderous war on Yemen, its attempted isolation of Qatar and threats to Lebanon, would disagree with such a diagnosis, these two power obsessed men seem intent on pushing ahead with their actions that have caused so  much damage and chaos across the Middle East.

MBS is a failure at this point in time, but rather than exercise caution, he is throwing it to the wind. He risks being overthrown himself, especially as he has split the Saudi royal establishment down the middle and if he wasn’t facing plots beforehand, he certainly will now.

Recent fast developments with a complete twisting of events especially in both Iraq and Syria with the miserable failure of the Saudi attempts to divide Iraq through the infamous Barazani Kurdistan’s independence referendum, and the fast collapse of ISIS, Saudi’s camp main card in the region, these developments pushed the Saudis to try to grab the rope before the failures of their regional policies were published.

The Yemeni missile that went right up in the Saudi’s crown prince’s ego and messed his whole plans was the trigger to throw all cards on… Continue reading: http://www.syrianews.cc/iran-rejects-saudi-talks-saudi-rabid/

A recent article by Mike Whitney in Counterpunch sounds a dire warning of what may await us in Syria, just as optimism is growing that the seven-year war against the NATO/Gulfies state-sponsored jihadists is winding down. Whitney says:

So there you have it. As the standoff begins to take shape in east Syria, the two rival superpowers are preparing themselves for the worst. Clearly, we have reached the most dangerous moment in the six year-long war.

As the world watches with bated breath the standoff in North Korea, the coming together of the two superpowers and their allies almost seems inevitable. At the very least, the Syrian Arab Army, SAA and… Continue reading: ISIS, US, HSD and Al-Qaeda: the Anti-Syrian Coalition | Syria News
