Posted on 12/06/2009 3:08:12 PM PST by SWAMPSNIPER
Jordan has sent several hundred troops from its special operations forces to help the Saudi military with its many Shi'ite units contain the Yemeni Shi'ite rebellion, which has spread deep into the Arab kingdom.

its just a tiny minority that hijack a peaceful religion, I am sure the Sauds have it under control. /S
I wonder if SANG is fighting this or the Saudi regular army?
Everyone on both sides... Hey, strap those suicide bombs on yourselves and mingle in the desert... OK...now... one...two... three... GO! Kaboom!!
Yemen could be the opening act of WWIV.
Interesting that we’re not hearing any of this in the MSM. And I wonder if Iran is playing a role in this?
>>Saudis funds most mosques and terror.<<
GW was liplocking with them and Bambi genuflects for them. Yemen will not bite Saudi — the US will make sure of that, whether we like it or not.
I would be at all surprised if it were U.S. Green Berets...
So, do we go to the Kingdom of Saud next to make things stable or do we just let them all kill each other?
You completely understand the world.
Iran is escalating against an American ally. The war is with Iran.
Your glee is pitiful.
hahaha... this is rich.. Karma bites back
Maybe both sides will lose
“Interesting that were not hearing any of this in the MSM.”
MSM= Muslim Silent Mode
...someting like the French revolution....
Hopefully this will clarify things for the Saud family. They have been trying to maintain an old fashioned royalist system that is hopelessly outdated in the modern world. So while the royal family may continue, their way of doing business must be updated.
To start with, they have a standing army of 120,000, with 130,000 in their national guard. This is with a population of 29M, with 6M non-nationals.
They, and a bunch of other Sunni states, are menaced by Iran, with a population of 66M, and active duty and reservist forces of about one million men. Four times as large as the Saudi army.
So Saudi Arabia needs to start doing deals with other Sunni nations and Iraq ASAP. The Saudis could easily afford to host one or two of the Iraqi combat divisions, as well as one or two divisions from Egypt, and some degree of support from Jordan.
The Iraqis would be an added bonus, because they could send units that are reliable, yet are Sunni, Shiite and Kurd. This means they could act around Shiites without raising fears that they would butcher them.
This is great. Hopefully, they will ask their US Muslim inferior for help. I’ll get the popcorn ready.
Why haven’t regional English language papers reported about this?
SA just got finished being invaded by the throngs in
Mecca. What’s the difference.
