Sectarianism comes back to bite Saudi Arabia - Washington Post (blog)
The recent bombing of ISIS in Syria got me to thinking just how many Islamic countries have we bombed or occupied? Tuns out quite a few since 1980. "In a recent Washington Post op-ed by the military historian and former U.S. Army Col. Andrew Bacevich: As America’s efforts to “degrade and ultimately destroy” Islamic State militants extent into Syria, Iraq War III has seamlessly morphed into Greater Middle East Battlefield XIV. That is, Syria has become at least the 14th country in the Islamic world that U.S. forces have invaded or occupied or bombed, and in which American soldiers have killed or been killed. And that’s just since 1980. Let’s tick them off: Iran (1980, 1987-1988), Libya (1981, 1986, 1989, 2011), Lebanon (1983), Kuwait (1991), Iraq (1991-2011, 2014-), Somalia (1992-1993, 2007-), Bosnia (1995), Saudi Arabia (1991, 1996), Afghanistan (1998, 2001-), Sudan (1998), Kosovo (1999), Yemen (2000, 2002-), Pakistan (2004-) and now Syria. Whew."

War Plans by Obama and the Saudis Against Syria Advance With President Obama scheduled to visit Riyadh, Saudi Arabia in the middle of March, war plans are being accelerated for regime change in Syria once again. According to one senior U.S. intelligence official, the Saudis are attempting to create the impression that they are once again “aligned with Washington” to pave the way for King Abdullah to make a strong pitch for regime change when the U.S. President sits down with him in several weeks. According to the source, the Saudis are promoting the idea of merging the Riyadh-backed “moderate” Islamist fighters with the secularist Free Syrian Army, to be able to wage war on both the Assad regime and the radicals of ISIS and Nusra Front at the same time. Over the past week, some significant meetings have taken place to advance this agenda. Today, David Ignatius reported in the Washington Post that last week, a number of Middle East spy chiefs were in Washington for secret meetings on the Syria situ ...
'S Arabia ditches Prince Bandar from Syria case over US' Reports say the Al Saud regime has relieved its spymaster, Prince Bandar bin Sultan, of his duties in spearheading the kingdom's mission in the Syria crisis. According to recent reports, Saudi Arabia has assigned Interior Minister Prince Mohammed bin Nayef to lead Riyadh’s anti-Damascus policies instead of the kingdom’s veteran spy chief, Prince Bandar, who has been a staunch supporter of Takfiri militants operating against Syria. Diplomatic sources say Washington had demanded the removal of Prince Bandar from the Syrian file because of his mismanagement of the situation in the country, which has been grappling with a foreign-backed crisis since March 2011. On February 19, the Washington Post also reported that the Saudi interior minister had recently represented Saudi Arabia at a conclave of Western and Arab spymasters in the United States, where he held talks with US National Security Adviser Susan Rice over the policies in Syria. Reports also ...
Axis of Fantasy vs. Axis of Reality France, Israel and Saudi Arabia confront an administration conducting a make-believe foreign policy. By Bret Stephens Updated Nov. 11, 2013 7:42 p.m. ET When the history of the Obama administration's foreign policy is written 20 or so years from now, the career of Wendy Sherman, our chief nuclear negotiator with Iran, will be instructive. In 1988, the former social worker ran the Washington office of the Dukakis campaign and worked at the Democratic National Committee. That was the year the Massachusetts governorcarried 111 electoral votes to George H.W. Bush's 426. In the mid-1990s, Ms. Sherman was briefly the CEO of something called the Fannie Mae Foundation, supposedly a charity that was shut down a decade later for what the Washington Post called "using tax-exempt contributions to advance corporate interests." From there it was on to the State Department, where she served as a point person in nuclear negotiations with North Korea and met with Kim Jong Il himself. T ...
Interesting article in the Washington Post about our current administration. I pasted it here. I think this is pretty accurate. Thanks to the ObamaCare debacle, Americans are getting a close-up of the rot at the core of the Obama administration. “The majority of people calling for me to resign I would say are people who I don’t work for,” health czar Kathleen Sebelius says. Press secretary Jay Carney dismisses all those complaining about the screw-ups as “willfully ignorant” and “partisan.” The refusal to see any criticism as legitimate helps explain why Obama is a failed president. He rammed ObamaCare through Congress without GOP votes, so it is bizarre to claim now that Republicans permanently forfeited all right to complain. His us-against-them mentality restricts input to those who agree with him. The same dynamic is playing out in foreign policy. Israel, Saudi Arabia, France and Germany have lost confidence in our policies on Syria, Iran and surveillance. They, too, have been shut ou .. ...
Come on girls. Saudi collects annually $100B Haj toll to bribe warlords, dictators & juntas to pop Muslims in Egypt and Arabspringers all over the world. Never mind about its investments in Israel. That’s how such worthless breaking took the lion-share on Zionists controlled headlines. Saudi Arabia rejects seat on UN Security Council is a joke. Saudi Monarchy driven by illiterate Wahabi Mountaingoats clergymen or Vice versa daydreamed to be on UN Security Council. Now they loathed it in solidarity with Syrian scrape. You must be kidding. Saudi adores Assad to stay in power even if he committed genocide against the whole 22 million Syrians just to maintain the status quo. They ain’t Wahabi Mountaingoats fighting in Syria. Its crude propaganda to scarecrow western fools to stay away and give a chance to Assad to finish Syria. Peace is another [harsh] word for prostitoootion. Assad is the only Phallus Obama got to shag Arabspringers. Assad has to be shot in the head and lynched up in Souq-al-Hamidyah unt ...
After months of canvassing for Nigeria’s inclusion in the United Nations Security Council, the country, Thursday, finally got elected to occupy one of the non-permanent seats on the council. Also elected were Chad, Chile, Lithuania and Saudi Arabia. According to the Washington Post, Saudi Arabia and Chad easily won the seats despite criticisms from human rights groups. Nigerian and four other candidates, endorsed by regional groups, faced no opposition, as there were no contested races for the first time in several years. Hailing Nigeria’s inclusion as a Security Council member, President Goodluck Jonathan welcomed the development and conveyed Nigeria’s appreciation of the support of all member countries of the UN who voted for the country’s election. The five new non-permanent members were elected in the first round of voting by the 193-member General Assembly. Lithuania was the top vote-getter with 187 votes followed by Nigeria and Chile with 186 votes, Chad with 184 votes and Saudi Arabia with ...
MUSLIM AND ARABIC CULTURE Eid al-Adha , also called Feast of the Sacrifice, the Major Festival, the Greater Eid is an important religious holiday celebrated by Muslims worldwide to honor the willingness of the prophet Ibrahim (Abraham) to sacrifice his young first-born son Ismail (Ishmael) as an act of submission to God's command and his son's acceptance to being sacrificed, before God intervened to provide Abraham with a ram to sacrifice instead. Muslims commemorate this ultimate act of sacrifice every year during Eid al-Adha. In the lunar Islamic calendar, Eid al-Adha falls on the 10th day of Dhu al-Hijjah and lasts for four days. In the international Gregorian calendar, the dates vary from year to year, drifting approximately 11 days earlier each year. This year, it’s next Tuesday, October 15, 2013. Eid al-Adha is directly connected to the Hajj (Pilgrimage) to Mecca, in Saudi Arabia as about 4 million Muslims gather there every year. The preceding day is called Day of Arafat, a hill east of Mecca, t ...
MYTHS ABOUT WHO BECOMES A TERRORIST Ibrahim Salih Mohammed Al-Yacoub FBI Most Wanted Terrorist No. 1 Jessica Stern wrote in the Washington Post: By now “we should be better at plucking a terrorist out of an airport security line. After all, we have some idea of what he'll be like: young, socially alienated and deeply religious. And he'll come from a country like Afghanistan, Algeria, Cuba, Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, Libya, Nigeria, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, Syria or Yemen. (Under new Transportation Security Administration rules announced last weekend, people bearing passports from these 14 countries will undergo special scrutiny before boarding a plane.) Or will he? What if he comes from Northern Virginia, like the five young men who were arrested in Pakistan in 2009 8 and who have been accused of planning "terrorist activities," according to Pakistani newspaper reports? The bottom line is that we can no longer assume that terrorists will come from any particular country or fit any particular pr ...
Some time ago, Qatar said it was ready to finance the invasion of Syria any coalition, and in any configuration. Then this offer few people paid attention, even though it is actually filmed one of the most important barriers to the aggression against Syria. Soon, however, the U.S. returned to the issue. According to the "Washington Post", at a congressional hearing on September 5, U.S. Secretary of State, John Kerry told the congressmen that the Arab countries are willing to take on the costs of America's military intervention in Syria. Who are these "Arab countries"? Of course, Qatar has already said publicly the willingness to pay for aggression against Syria, and Saudi Arabia, which no one doubts. Well-known Russian political scientist and director of the Middle East Institute Yevgeny Satanovsky, categorically states: "The conflict lobbying Turkey, Qatar and Saudi Arabia," - but sees it as lobbying mostly religious motifs, but do not rule out the economic rationale. If small Qatar and Saudi Arabia huge ...

Washington Post Editorial: In Saudi Arabia, whips for words on et al.
White House Aide David Plouffe Takes Money Indirectly from Iran -- and Nobody Seems to Notice From 2012!! In 2012, a White House aide in the Obama administration is revealed to have received a six-figure amount from a company connected to Iran, and nothing happens. The press doesn’t seem to care; the establishment is unruffled; even opposition Republicans have hardly noticed. If we, as a nation, had been this un-vigilant back during '30s or the '40s, America might not have survived. More than two weeks after it ran, we can see now what should have been a big bang of a news story -- the August 5 report in the Washington Post that David Plouffe, White House senior adviser, had accepted $100,000 from MTN, a South Africa-based mobile-phone company--a company that does multi-billion dollar business with Iran. Yet the story has, in fact, turned out to be a whimper. At Monday’s White House press conference -- the first such Q and A session in eight weeks -- the press found time to ask questions about Syria, ...

AS BOUND WITH THE PERSECUTED CHURCH - (from house.org) American pastor Saeed Abedini remains locked away in Iran, facing torment and a possible eight years in the notorious Evin prison after his "trial" on January 27th. Abedini was arrested at a time he was working to establish a non-religious orphanage in Iran; he was convicted on charges of attempting to undermine the national security of Iran for his work with Iranian house churches. When he was permitted a brief meeting with his family, he had been beaten and tortured and psychologically worked over. He is not alone. Christians in a variety of countries face torture and imprisonment and death for meeting together to study the Bible or daring to tell others about the gospel. We hear of these precious people in Iran, North Korea, Burma, Indonesia, Nigeria, Laos, China, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Maldives, Mali. Churches are bombed or attacked by gunmen. Christians are forced to meet in secret or face severe penalties. In Laos earlier this month, three pastors ...
Please pray about Tracking Liberal Media Bias Since 1996 Friday February 08, 2013 @ 09:28 AM ET 1. The New York Times and National Security Secrets: Obama vs. Bush News that the New York Times and Washington Post kept secret until recently the secret U.S. drone base in Saudi Arabia is once again raising questions on the paper's politicized double standards on keeping state secrets related to the war on terror. Contrast the apparent deference paid to the Obama administration's request for secrecy with how the paper routinely leaked secrets during the Bush administration that may have hurt anti-terrorist programs. 2. The Blackout Continues: CBS Evening News Again Ignores Obama Drone Strikes For the second day in a row, the CBS Evening News on Wednesday avoided any coverage of a new memo revealing that the Obama administration asserts the power to legally strike terrorists, even if they're American citizens.

Washington Post: "an estimated quarter of all citizens live in poverty" - video:
Today Ruth Marcus wrote a column in the Washington Post again on Paula Broadwell. All women who care about their fitness, beauty and fashion in addition to their daily duties as mothers, wives and workers or community volunteers should reject this column as offensive. Paula Broadwell is not blamed strictly for her affair ( even though this must be more a Holly Petraeus' business than Ruth Marcus') , but for wearing a sleeveless top showing her sexy shoulders on a night TV show with comedian Jon Stewart .Are we in America or Saudi Arabia??? Please Ruth, don' t use the media to trade your feminine envy for boring savvy comments on appropriate outfit. Shall we follow the Holly P. fashion? Shall we???

Knowing that American newspapers are dirtier instigators of sedition in Syria and carrying responsibility for fabricating a lot of events in Syria but we like to bring them and their mouth themselves. - Washington Post: Saudi Arabia carried out their own agenda in Syria based on conflict in the area bombing consistently as it did in Iraq and Lebanon, and Washington should be cautious of drift behind Said the Washington Post report correspondent nemesis for the Middle East, David Ignatius, the current situation in Syria now much like the situation in Afghanistan during the 1980s for the clandestine support of the CIA and its allies in the Middle East the Syrian opposition.
