Posted on 05/05/2014 3:52:40 AM PDT by Fennie
TEHRAN (FNA) - Saudi Arabia has sent a large number of Takfiri fighters in Syria to Ukraine to fight the pro-Russian protesters in the European country.
"A large number of terrorist Takfiri fighters in Syria, who bear Saudi and Chechnian nationalities and receive financial and military backup from the Saudi intelligence agency, have been transferred to the Ukrainian capital, Kiev, on several planes to help the Ukrainian army in its fight against the pro-Russian population," an Arab security official told FNA on Sunday on the condition of anonymity due to the secrecy of the issue.
"The forces have been immediately dispatched to Kramatosk city in Eastern Ukraine, and are now fighting beside the Ukrainian army forces against the pro-Russians under the name of militias who support the government," the source added.
The source explained that Saudi Arabia seeks to take revenge from Russia and pro-Russian people in Ukraine due to Moscow's support for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in the war on rebel groups.

Russians and Arabs. The biggest liars in the known universe.
It’s a ninety percent chance that the story is fake...but it adds certain elements to a different game if it were true.
First, the Saudis have these guys under a contract of sorts...so they don’t care who they fight. Second, there is open hostility over how Russia played out the Assad game and wound up President Obama into a no-move situation. Third, the Saudis owe nothing to Russia...or to the Ukraine, or to the EU. Fourth, the minute you say Chechen rebels....it stirs up a hornet’s nest with Russians. Fifth...if the Chechens did get back into this Russia episode....it harms Russian stability.
So I’m not betting on the story being true....but man, it would really change the whole strategy at work presently.
“So Im not betting on the story being true....but man, it would really change the whole strategy at work presently.”
The problem initiating any war is that the moment you do the entire picture changes. The strategy you start with won’t last more than a month and then you either continuously adapt on the ground or you die. (That is the huge problem I see with how the US conducts a war now. It’s run by desk jockeys 12,000 miles away. So, not only does their strategy become obsolete their view is filtered through people who don’t want to tell them they’re failing.)
The thing is a mess and despite what the pro Ukrainian propagandists tell us, nobody is 100% innocent in this mess.
As far as muslims fighting in non muslim fights are concerned, there are plenty of stories about Iranians in Venezuela targeting protesters.
~As far as muslims fighting in non muslim fights~
In fact Crimean Tatars are a single most anti-Russian group in Ukraine and just like Saudis they are a Sunni muslims.
So the Saudis send their Muslim mercenaries to fight for Ukraine against Russia...and we should take Ukraine’s side? Will we ever learn?
This seems crazy now but I have a feeling there are going to be a lot of “war tourists” on both sides in Ukraine. The question is what will happen when they start killing Russians. Putin isn’t going to enjoy getting some of his own irregular warfare medicine.
We have really never seen anything like this live stream and twitter war. Where the escalation will ends I think nobody knows at this point.
Hell, we’re probably paying for them.
“So the Saudis send their Muslim mercenaries to fight for Ukraine against Russia...and we should take Ukraines side?”
Sometimes I wonder how the hell America became a global superpower.
“The thing is a mess and despite what the pro Ukrainian propagandists tell us, nobody is 100% innocent in this mess.”
How would this - even if true - imply any guilt on the part of the Ukrainians? The Ukrainians have the right to ally themselves or hire themselves any scumbags they want to defend their country from invasion. We would do no less here if we believed we needed to.
Who do you root for in this one?
Iran propaganda. 100% false. Doesn’t Takfiri mean apostate Muslim?
You might want to consider dismissing this story as pure propaganda.
I root for the truth, which is in short supply these day, and I’m not getting it from either side. The EU/US government homos are all telling me to root for those nice democracy loving young people in Kiev who only want to be Americans. Vlad the impaler, the defender of Christianity, is telling me that they’re just a bunch of Neo-nazi globalist bankers Tea Party Muslim Atheists who want forced abortions and homo orgies in everyone’s living rooms.
Who can you believe?

This is from what is apparently an Iranian site. Saudi Arabia has been supposedly considering the Iranian nuke sites for years. I would take this with a HUGE grain of salt. It also should not be on Front Page news as it is little more than a rumor.
