Skip to comments.Obama issues dire prediction for Saudis
Posted on 04/08/2015 5:03:02 AM PDT by RoosterRedux
I think the biggest threats that they face may not be coming from Iran invading, said Obama. Its going to be from dissatisfaction inside their own countries.
While the presidents remarks were mostly overlooked by the U.S. and Western media, the comments received headline coverage in news outlets run by Iran and by the Hezbollah jihadist organization.
Obama sat down Saturday with Times columnist Thomas L. Friedman, who asked about protecting our Sunni Arab allies, like Saudi Arabia.
Obama explained he thinks that our friends in the region, our traditional Sunni states, have some very real external threats, but they also have some internal threats.
He highlighted the threat of populations that, in some cases, are alienated, youth that are underemployed, an ideology that is destructive and nihilistic, and in some cases, just a belief that there are no legitimate political outlets for grievances.

obama says arab spring be coming your way, Saudi brothers, and all your fault.. next year he be bowing to isis
Please, for God’s sake, shut up !
Odd how he says this...then does up the deal to help Iran reach their nuke weapon goal. The Saudis have no choice....acquire nuke weapons within five years and reach the same status as Iran.
For some reason, I’m just not buying his sincerity.
Saudis just need an Obama-style Arab Spring.
Yeah..... there’s no doubt Obammy is a radical muslim. He wants the secular governments there overthrown and replaced with taliban style extremists.
I think that is exactly what Obummer has planned for them.
ah, a discontented member of my fan club.
I shall I return your dues.
“[Obama]highlighted the threat of populations that, in some cases, are alienated, youth that are underemployed, an ideology that is destructive and nihilistic, and in some cases, just a belief that there are no legitimate political outlets for grievances.
Wait. Is Obama discussing Saudi Arabia or the United States?
I think he’s addressing his comment to Obama.;-)
Strangely believe it, but Obama has the same problem.
The lid on the internal pot is going to blow if he keeps on keeping on
Obama wants an “Arab Spring” in Saudi Arabia? I’m not surprised. I hope the more or less stable and only moderately pro-terrorist Saudi government can avoid being toppled by Obama’s thoroughly terrorist supporters in Iran.
I can see this character sitting around with his trusted play auntie and a few acolytes telling each other urban legends and translating that into foreign policy. It would make for hilarious television.
“Please, for Gods sake, shut up !”
He’s a boor now. Wait until he is out of office and pathologically desperate for the spotlight.
He’ll be issuing statements about everything from Iran nukes to traffic stops in Stump Jump, Idaho.
COMMUNITY ORGANIZOR AT WORK
These progressives rarely can keep their own secrets. 0bama is as giddy as a school girl over this prospect!
Sounds like he’s getting ready to incite another “Arab Spring” revolt for the MB.
“From manufactured crisis to manufactured crisis... How one ineligible and unqualified moron made it from a Kenyan sh&^hole to the WH!”
Sorry but he is actually right. “Our friends” the Saudi royals are actually quite decadent and the oil wealth creates only the veneer of stability. Despite huge defense expenditures they cannot assume that the common soldiers in their army would risk all if they were deployed into serious combat. They are very vulnerable to the claims of the mullahs and even other Sunnis that they are not fit custodians of Islam’s most holy sites. Also lets not forget that it was Saudi citizens, Saudi money, and that inspiration and direction of the Saudi funded Wahhabi that brought about 9/11.
