I don’t know if any of this is true, but the telegraph is a serious newspaper, so it’s worthy of discussion. It seems silly to me for the Saudis to admit to their influence over the chechens given the history there. Seems like the Prince may have been a little bit more honest than need be. I still don’t understand why world leaders continue to try to negotiate with Putin. He simply listens carefully to them taking in everything they choose to give away and then goes about doing whatever the hell he wants to do, regardless. It’s a complete waste of time. After over a half century of positive Russia/Arab relations, Syria is the only remaining country in the Arab world that the Russians have a strategic relationship with, they’re not going to walk away from that easily. We’ll have basically boxed them out of the region other than their attempts to woo Iran.

I don't know either, and perhaps The Telegraph is a serious publication, but I remember when AEP articles were posted here on an almost daily basis (not so much recently, AFAICT). It was always doom-and-gloom, right around the corner. Tomorrow! Next week! Soon! Needless to say, none of those prophecies ever came true. I don't give that poofter much credit for anything he utters.
