“And I will set the Egyptians against the Egyptians: and they shall fight every one against his brother and every one against his neighbor; city against city and kingdom against kingdom. And the spirit of Egypt shall fall in the midst thereof; and I will destroy the counsel thereof.” –– Isaiah 19:2-3
In the Ziocons’ playbook for the Middle East, Saudi Arabia is nothing more than a strategic pivot and useful idiot. This is also an excuse to replace KSA leadership with different Ziocon stooges (probably with Goldman Sachs connections) and to keep the whole of the Middle East in permanent chaos and destruction, along with neutralizing any threat to Israel.
Saudi Arabia has always been easy to compromise, extort and control. Deep-state intelligence uses misinformation detours called “slides.” This is to prevent people from reasoned thinking and looking in the right direction. Anything that has to do with the 28 (formerly) missing pages on 9/11, Zacarias Moussaoui or Saudi Arabia needs to be looked at in this light.
The soon-to-be dictator king is Muhammad bin Salman bin Abdulaziz al Saud. He is fawned over in (((U.S. media))). And it’s no wonder. Some of his money will drop here or there when a journalist writes a puff piece about him. If the journo is really good at it he/she will get payed off in some CIA-endorsed weapons deal with the Gulf sheiks. We saw this recently with the Wall Street Journal chief foreign affairs correspondent (((Jay Solomon))). This must have been particularly bad for a Zionist stooge to lose his get-out-of-jail card.
Bin Salman has no idea of the value of money and hence can be ripped off by Cabal and Crime Syndicate operatives. He must have some of the same Trumpian slash-and-burn advisers involved, because he proposes new regressive taxes, a large sell off of public assets and privatization of social services.
With oil prices relatively low, the Saudi fiscal house is deteriorating. His development program for Saudi Arabia, based on austerity, was written by McKinsey consultants and is thereby likely to fail. Funds are being squandered in divide-and-conquer warmongering campaigns around the region.
Bin Salman is not very bright, nor is he that popular. It is he who is most behind the Yemen atrocity. He visited Israel and is in constant contact with Israeli officials. Israel sent 18 fighter jets his way to back him against potential uprising or coup. With his extreme anti-Iranian stand, he looks like a mere U.S.-Israeli puppet. For Saudi Arabia as a country, that is a no-win situation. If conflict with Iran openly breaks out, there will be a Shia uprising in the Eastern Province, where the bulk of Saudi Arabia’s oil fields and infrastructure are located. In a head to head with Iran, the Saudis will fair poorly.
Smarter observers believe there will be a spark and a conflict of some sort. Qatar is another bad actor in the region, but because they are far less insane than the Saudis, they have been targeted by the stoogery in yet another Zio divide-and-conquer operation. A trade and diplomatic embargo has been put on. Now, the Gulf States (plus Egypt) led by the Saudis have given Qatar until July 3 to accept 13 unconditional surrender demands, including closure of broadcaster al-Jazeera, a drastic scale-back cooperation with Iran, removal of Turkish troops from Qatar’s soil, end of contacts with groups such as the Muslim Brotherhood and submit to monthly external compliance checks.
The U.S. and U.K. appear to be playing a phony good-cop routine in this charade, with the true goal being to drive a wedge between Qatar and Iran.
Qatar has no real military, so regime change would be a simple matter, unless there was Iranian intervention. Nor is there much of a Qatari population to speak of. About half the country are south Asian expats. About 20% of Muslims in Qatar are Shia. The country is essentially just a bank account with some oil and natural gas reserves and a strategic location. United States Central Command (USCENTCOM) is based there.
