The Real Fight Against ISIS Begins in Saudi Arabia

There is a disgraceful spectacle unfolding in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, in which some of the leading lights of the West are playing the role of medieval court jesters, singing platitudes to tyrants in a demonstration of subservience that shames the rest of us.

Ostensibly, the American, British, French and other European leaders travelled to the medieval monstrosity we call Saudi Arabia to offer condolences to the family of the late King Abdullah.

But the reality is different. They are there because the Saudis have money and oil.

    This matter is complicated by Saudi fear and loathing of Iran. So which is the greater threat, an Iranian regime about to go nuclear or the Saudis who sponsor jihad? According to Netanyahu, the real leader of the free world, Iran is, although Bibi won’t suck up to the Saudi monarchy. (Obama is characteristically clueless. When asked, he replies, “Fore!”)

      For Israel, it’s perhaps Iran, but for the West in general, I would suggest that it is the Saudis. Iran is unlikely to try lobbing missiles at Washington (not if they wish to continue to exist) but the poison the Saudis are planting in our countries rots them from within.

        You pose an interesting question: If Iran really did nuke the US, would Obama respond?

          I really don’t think he would, he would claim “rogue elements “were responsible then back down and normalize relations.

    • Typical Islamic cesspool of hatred and violence. And to make matters worse, Obama is a Muslim playing the Islam taqqia card.

      The countless millions of jihadis spawned by Saudi money over the past 35+ years is now coming to roost where ever they can find a place to do their personal jihad. The jihadis do not care who they kill – Saudi Sunis or Shias.

      You can be sure the Saudi royal family is in their cross-hairs.

      Because Islam makes a continuous claim of religious legitimacy, Islam, as a system, can rely on a huge, unpaid, unseen, unorganized, individually acting, empowered to act, widely distributed group of highly motivated devout believers who are willing to kill in order to keep Islam the way it is.

      These devout believers in reality represent an unconventional unseen phantom army. An army where no one needs orders and each soldier knows exactly what to do. An army where no one is really in control. An army as deadly as any on earth.

      The West is worse than ISIS and Saudi Arabia, Westerners are hypocritical,big time.

    Obama has presided over the growth of dictatorship through his lack of concern for freedom. Under Ronald Reagan, the number of free, democratic countries increased.

    WE have more oil in North America than the rest of the world, why we should give a flying FEK about these animals is a mystery to me.

    Saudis – obnoxious, condescending, rude, barbaric, brutal, throwbacks…need I go on?
