I guess that bowing to the Saudi prince did get Obama somewhere? Leading from behind sure don't get much respect in the Arab world.

The president is an international joke. The american press just doesn't have the stomach to discuss it.

Why?

Everything is going fine over there. Muslims wiping each other out with very few “infidels” being effected.

Saudi Arabia politics are really complicated. On the one hand they are in support of the anti-Muslim Brotherhood Coup in Egypt. They like the much more friendly Egyptian Military running things like the good old days. They like stability.

In Syria, however, they support the rebels which include al Qaeda and certainly the Muslim Brotherhood. In this case the Saudi Policy has to be based on the greater goal of reducing the influence, power and reach of Iran. Since Syria is without a doubt an Iranian client that actually makes sense.

But it might also be an “out of the frying pan and into the fire” decision by the Saudis. Time will tell on that. But they are probably correct and they certainly understand Middle East politics better than the Big O.

While I think Desert Storm was a necessity to prevent Saddam from conquering the Gulf states and/or making them submit, the Gulf monarchies are not averse to making stuff up.

The muzzies are loosing out there. They invent such “horror stories” for they urgently need some shocking sensation to ivoke sympathy from the international community. Besides, Assad ain’t so silly to deploy the chems right after the UN inspectors arrived in the country to check out allegations of a WMD use.

The picture of the “killed” kids posted by some news agencies will never make me believe it’s true. If one gets poisoned by a lethal gas his face will be distorted with pain, will not look like a peaceful sleep.
