Bloomberg headline, citing Al-Arabiya.
If true, that would be one of the stupidest military moves of all time. USD/JPY down about 10 pips on the headline.
Some are pointing out that Al-Arabiya is Saudi owned and that the Saudis are no friends of Assad
No way this is true.
I’m watching Saudi Arabia sitting back in the shadows laughing at all of this. I think their day of reckoning is coming up fast, and that demonic rock in Mecca isn’t going to help.
Not only that the Saudis are backing the new “opposition leader” because he is sunni from one of their tribes
Saudi money is paying for the jihadist weapons allu akhbar
Some reports from locals say the Saudis gave them the CW weapons to use as a provocation to get the West into the war against assad
and then there is that pipeline the Saudis would like to see through Syria
Oh and sticking a Saudi finger in the eyes of the Iranians and displacing them and their militias from Syria- priceless
