Saudi Arabia forms alliance of 34 Muslim nations to fight ISIS and tackle ‘the Islamic world’s problem with terrorism’

But not the terrorism Saudi Arabia finances obviously.

Saudi Arabia has formed an alliance of 34 Muslim nations to fight ISIS and tackle ‘the Islamic world’s problem with terrorism’.

The Saudi-led coalition, which will be based in Riyadh, includes powerful gulf states Egypt and Turkey but excludes Iran.

    Well, yes, obviously that’s the end of terrorism. ISIS might as well just surrender.

    shia vs sunni terrorism, they both want us dead they are just fighting over who gets to kill us and rape the corpse.

    Obama better get on the phone quickly and negotiate a Sunni-Shia peace treaty involving Saudi Arabia, Iran, and all nearby Muslim states. Oh, who am I kidding? He’s more concerned about the “Palestinians”, global warming, and his golf game.

      “Palestinians”, global warming, and his golf game. If you reversed the order you would have the correct order of importance.

        Ah, silly me. You’re absolutely right! 🙂

    yes and the end goal is israel. any fool can see that.

  • Hard Little Machine

    Arabs are genetically opposed to the very notion of alliance.

  • barryjr

    It’s all about the money and nothing else. Both sides want to corner the oil market.

    ISIS, shmisis, it’s all about Sunnis vs. Shiites and the latter’s Russian alliance. Let them have at it, including Pakistan’s and Iran’s nukes. By the time the slaughter is done, Israel will be “the last man standing” in the region, and with upgraded offensive and defensive weaponry. And if any other outside powers besides Russia want to intervene, let them get what they deserve.

    It should also exclude Turkey.

    Read Norvall B De Atkines treatise on the incompetencies of Arab armies
    then multiply by 34.
    This projected alliance would truly be a confederacy of dunces.

    If making war was simply looting rape and rapine torture and grotesquery then the sand scuttling rogues would be pre eminent in the art……but alas it is not.

    In a recent interview Robert Spencer mentioned how ISIS planned to eventually overthrow not only the Iranian government but the Saudi government. The Saudi government funded and encouraged the growth and spread of ISIS as long as they can control it but at some point Saudi Arabia will no longer be able to control ISIS which will create the conditions for ISIS to overthrow the Saudi regime in order to conqueror Mecca which would not be the first time an Islamic military had tried to do during the existence of Islam.

      Spencer must have read “Frankenstein.” Said the Saudi king, “I have created a monster.”

    Since when were Egypt and Turkey “powerful gulf states”?
