Saudi Arabia Prepares To Send Special Forces To Syria; Will Fight As Part Of "US-Led Coalition"

Tyler Durden's picture

As we reported yesterday, in one of the most surprising developments involving the Syrian proxy war, Saudi Arabia and U.S. presence on the ground, the latest twist is that both Turkey and Saudi Arabia are now mulling a full-scale invasion while Russia and the Syrian government continue their progress in wiping out the US and Saudi-funded rebellion. To be sure, there was confusion when CNN Arabia reported first that the Saudis may send as much as 150,000 troops into Saudi Arabia, by way of Turkey, something which Anadolu news promptly denied.

However, the denial itself was softly denied by the Saudi Press Agency, which further stirred the water earlier today when it reported that not only is Saudi Arabia ready to send a special force to fight in Syria, but that this deployment was proposed by the US, which would oversee the Saudi troops as part of the US-led coalition in Syria. To wit:


And so, what was until recently purely an air campaign involving all the major global powers (except China, for for the time being), is about to become a full-blown land war, involving not only Suunis and Shi'ites (especially once Iran joins the fray), but also Russian troops on one side and US and Saudis on the other.

Most notably, oil has refused to budge even an inch on what is rapidly shaping up as a precursor to World War III.

The Iranian Special Forces along with the Russians are going to wipe some Cryto Zionist Jew asses. Payback for Bandar threatening Russia before the Olympics.

For the love of christmas who is coming up with these ideas?  

Will the Saudis wear turbines on their heads?  The Russians are already there!  Why do we need bother?  Unless some sort of mischief is afoot.  OOps answered my own question.

<<<<< Saudis will fight Assad there

I wish there was a third for “Saudis may encounter Russian bombs”.

Saudi Arabia already sent their special forces:  they are called ISIS.

Saudi Special forces!!! More like Saudi Special Needs!!! Saudi expects to fight against who? They are the weakest player in the game!!!!

National Propaganda Radio hosts were aghast on the show this morning to hear their field reporters verify, "Americans are  angry; very very angry."


However, they were all befuddled; how can that be true in this Awesome, Exceptional, BLM, FSA, PC country?


They were horrified to hear their field reporters state that Bernie supporters would vote for The Trumpster if Bernie were not chosen to be the Dem candidate.


The disconnet between DC/MSM and the middle class American citizen has never been greater during my lifetime.

A bullshit wannabe invasion like the 45 invasions of Russia into Ukraine.

They are just gonna fight the Infidels in Syria = IS. Just a question of definition. :)

Also known as Assad regime.

Hey Yoga Pants, Saudis don't wear turbans (or turbines).  It's the other thing.

I'm still baffled by the animosity everyone seems to have for our Proxy in MENA region, and our collaborator in the Petrodollar scam.

Hey Einsteins... they are on our side!  They are doing our dirty work - however foolish and suicidal they are for doing it, yet and still - they are doing it for US!

And if you're not from the US but a Euro, then they are almost single-handedly keeping the U.K. arms industry - the E.U. largest - in the black.

You better PRAY for them.  When they inevitably fall, then so does the worthless greenback.  You're done.  History. Fini.  Or in the U.K. - full time! 

Jesus.  Get a clue.  Go Saudis!

Miles Ahead's picture

... all junked!

So... I'm wrong.  The reply button awaits.  Or else accept it like a good boy(s)

The Zio (House of Saud + Rothschild Israel) tail is wagging the US dog.

The Saudis are really asking for a beat-down. The Syrians don't even have to send the Russians after them, the Iranians could easily take them out. The question is how many US pawns are mixed in with them.

Attacking defenseless Yemeni villages is one thing. Just because they got away with that doesn't mean that they will have any luck against real fighters. No way would they be so bold as to take on the Iranians, Russians, and the Syrian Army unless they had some guarantee of cover. They know they would get zapped.

StackShinyStuff's picture

They will fight them there so we don't have to fight them here.  What could possibly go wrong?

Fixed it for ya.  That's what Proxies do.

The Saudi's are a bunch of goat raping pussies, any semi decent army could wipe the the floor with them.



DeadFred's picture

These are just words. Logistically this would be very hard for them to do and would require months to set in motion against a Russian led assault on the idea through world opinion. Putin was able to stop the 'sarin gas' war and there is no way a major ground effort will get started. They probably just wanted to see if they could juice crude prices with this talking point.

This is simply continuation of Saudi air campaign and is a hot air campaign and nothing more.

mokuji's picture

Can't help wondering about the meaning of this "Gru" (see Ghordius' profile - imho worthful words for testing times..) Could it be short for "Goldilocks r us"? ;)
Please spare a moment to enlighten me!

GRU is Soviet/Russian Military Intelligence.  Kind of like the CIA but with their own Spetznaz troops.

Blankone's picture

While this is probably just a psyopp to get oil prices up, as you say, or other political purposes - that they say the US was pushing the idea means the US is party to the game in some way.

The Tylers post a head line of "Wil Fight As Part" like it is definate.  Should say "would".

The others are wrong however.  If it did happen with US air cover then anywhere live fire occured with Syria's troops the US would strike and Putin would NOT.  IF they do move in then they will be fighting the Syrian's and Hezbollah with US air support and will not face direct fire from Russia.

Remember, Putin stood down while the US repeatedly bombed a Syrian military base - and Russia stood down while Israel flew in and bombed a building in Damascus to kill a Hezbollah political figure head/leader (AND Assad gave the information to Israel of where he was located).  In neither of these cases has Putin said anything or theatened to react.  Also, the US has been preparing a US airbase in NE Syria, is it ready to go operational?  Does Russia have an airbase in NE Syria?  Did Putin do anything about the US developing that airbase?

Putin is too timid to declare a no-fly zone in Syria.  Despite the early articles posted on ZH claiming there was a defacto nofly zone that has been proven not to be the case.  Putin's fear will provide the opportunity to turn the tide IF the invasion the Tylers claim will happen does occur.

OR, this is another case of Putin setting up Russia's "friends".  He has lured Hezbollah out into the open, he has allowed a prominent figure head to be killed by Israli jets and has allowed a Hezbollah column to be bombed by Nato jets.  Hezbollah better have a plan of how to run back home without Putin giving any air support if they need to.

Get a legal Declaration Of War from Congress or FUCK OFF.

AllBentOutOfShape's picture

The one thing most here seem to be forgetting is the 34-nation 'Sunni' bloc which was formed by..... you guessed it, Saudi Arabia.  So when the Saudis say that 'they' are ready to invade Syria, they're not just talking about themselves.  You can bet it'll be a combination of the many poor saps they now have at their disposal within this new Sunni bloc.

The writing is on the wall.  They want to hit Russia on multiple fronts.  Expect Syria, Donbass, and possibly Crimea to all be invaded within days of each other.  And when that is all going down, you should also expect the Zios to invade Gaza again.

Once again, I am getting that feeling like I am on the wrong side.


Ghordius's picture

pods, technically, you are kind of on the other side of Russia, France, Germany, Iran and the Assad regime

so what are you moaning about? ;-)


pods's picture

lol. I didn't even want to play.  

FreeMoney's picture

This has to be part of a way bigger plan.  Saudis dont fight wars, they hire out for that.  I suspect these troops are being sacrificed so the US, UK, France can swoop in to "save" our dear ally in their hour of need.

Miles Ahead's picture

True, they and the Turks hope to box NATO in a corner and force their hand (sorry, mixing metaphors, but that's me). 

The only thing is, knowing the U.S., we'll think long and hard about hmmm, maybe we can get that oil another way... 

We keep 'regime change' arrows first and foremost in our quiver (sorry again). lol

So the US wiants to declare war on Russia in Syria? Any entry into Syrian territory or airspace by any uninvited nation would be both a breach of International law. And would "Make Putin's day"..

HenryHall's picture

Hezbollah will take particular delight in killing Saudis.

The Russians will perhaps only add a few cruise missiles to help out.

Time to thin the fucking herd or another "1783" moment?

Remember, in 1783 congress could not pay the army, so the soldiers took matters into their own hands.

Be optimistic folks.

Blankone's picture

Re philipat - " Any entry into Syrian territory or airspace by any uninvited nation would be both a breach of International law."

NATO has been flying Syria's skys and bombing for years now.  No one done anything about that, so what is the consequence for breaching that law you spoke of?


FixItAgainTony's picture

Cruise missiles hitting select govt buildings in Riyadh?  Maybe tactical nukes on Turkmen logistical ops.  Because ZATO and friends have little remaining of Syria's infrastructure to target, just their population left now, Combine forces can continue demonstrating relative restraint with the understanding of a holy beat-down if ZATO proceeds with large scale civilian massacres.

Have we established any sort of rules?


That's a lot of countries stepping all over everyone.'s Fightclub!


Iran fights the Saudis, Syria fights the US.....don't know who Russia fights. We need another country.....maybe we can get Turkey?

Shibboleth's picture

The first rule of Fight Club is: You do not talk about Fight Club

Ghordius's picture

bullshit. that's a rule for real Fight Clubs. where men fight instead of opening their jabberwakie

this is a words-only "fight club", per definition. and yet, some here are obviously not fighting men... because they talk so much about violence

ladies might be excused, of course, not the target of this rant


Freddie's picture

Russians know fight club.  Go to Murmansk is a third world invader and grope some Russian women in a club and be prepared for an ass beating to end all ass beatings.
