Saudi Foreign Minister Meets Obama, Urges "More Aggressive Approach To Syria"

Tyler Durden's picture

Earlier today, when breaking down the "mutiny" at the State Department which as the WSJ reported saw over 50 staffers demand that military strikes be launched against Syria to eliminated president Assad "as the only way to defeat the Islamic State", we suggested that one of the untold motives behind this surprising revolt, a very disturbing one, is that this was merely a trojan horse proposal to push the Saudi agenda.

As we hinted, the US may be merely pandering to Saudi demands, something it has clearly done very well ever since the Sep 11 attacks which covered up Saudi involvement:

The cable also echoes the growing impatience among U.S. Gulf allies with the lack of military intervention targeted at the Damascus government to force Mr. Assad to resign and make way for a transitional government. Peace talks between Syria’s government and opposition collapsed in April over Mr. Assad’s fate, with the regime insisting he should stay in power, while the negotiated cease-fire continued to disintegrate. Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates have pressed the U.S. to provide more sophisticated weapons to rebels. But Washington has resisted.

In other words, if the US does fold and proceeds with military strikes, i.e. full blown invasion and war, on Assad, it will once again be Saudi Arabia that is running US foreign policy, and pushing the US nation into what may be a state of open war with Russia.

As we concluded "we can only hope the American people wake up and stop this travesty
before Saudi Arabia's favorite presidential candidate is elected


Then moments ago, the Saudi foreign minister Adel al Jubeir who is visiting the US and just concluded a meeting with President Obama confirmed just that when he said that "Saudi Arabia supports a more aggressive military approach in Syria to get Assad to agree to a political solution."

In other words, he is urging Obama, or rather not the lame duck president, but rather his replacement, to fight a way for Saudi Arabia, one which may result in another far more serious war, that with Russia.

Which, of course, explains our article from early this week, namely the stunning admission by the Saudi Crown Prince that "Saudi Arabia Has Funded 20% Of Hillary's Presidential Campaign." We can already guess what one of president Hillary's first foreign policy decisions will be: sending even more US troops to fight an offensive Saudi war against the sovereign state of Syria.

And then, in another curious admission, Jubeir also backtracked on his warning from mid-April in which he said that pursuing legal action against the Saudis over Sept 11 would lead to the Kingdom's dumping of hundreds of billions in US reserves, and instead is now encouraging the release of the classified 28 pages on the September 11 attacks.

Well, if the Saudis are ok with it, what is Obama waitinf for?

What a coincidence!

Yesterday, our diplomats sign a letter demanding airstrikes in Syria.

Today, the Saudi Douchebag barges into the WH.

Any questions about WHO those “51 diplomats” fork for?

You forgot the part where the CIA publicly assured Suadi Arabia the 28 pages would exonerate them just a few days (week?) ago.

Now, who wants moar war?

Anyone have a link to these 51 "diplomats"?  Maybe it's Crazy John McCain signing 51 times??

"More Aggressive Approach To Syria"

Even more curious that as ISIS is now beginning to fail in Syria, the Saudis are desperate for US direct military intervention against Assad. 

Backin2006's picture

How about a more aggressive approach to regional warmongers instead!

BorisTheBlade's picture

That would require biting the hand that feeds many 'respectable people' in DC.

Hint: Assad is not the one doing the feeding.

In this instance the WARMONGER is NOT Saudi Arabia. The TRUTH:

Beam Me Up Scotty's picture

I think we should nuke Saudi Arabia, and take all of their fucking oil for the problems they are causing everyone.  Fuck them.  If they want Assad out, then they should do it themselves.

Problem is: Even though they spend +/- the same money in USD on their Army as Russia, they are not capable of successfully fighting a war abroad. No real experience in "expeditionary warfare". The Saudi army is good for keeping their own population (and tribes) in check and maybe for dissuading other powers in the region..., not more and not less. ...And what they probably fear most is the humiliation of a lost campaign/war which could get the two ruling (political/clerical) families (al-Saud/al-Sheikh) into trouble (other mighty tribes might have aspirations to leadership...) or could even divide them internally after almost 300 years.

How to solve all US foreign policy in the Middle East once and for all.  Hire an openly gay guy with a first man.  That would get the Saudi's going.

just that when he said that "Saudi Arabia supports a more aggressive military approach in Syria to get Assad to agree to a political solution."


Which actually means, givs us all your oil and sell out to the world bank and IMF..

So, If citizen Obozo flies over to Saudi Arabia, would they behead him or just stone him?

Because he is a faggot, and they don't cotton to that shit over there, at least in public.

He is a useful idiot for the cause of Islam and is to be spared for now.

Spot on and a worthy read. Trump could do worse than selecting Gen. Michael Flynn for a running mate.

"At least in public" is they key phrase.  I bet there are a lot of raging closet homosexuals in Saudi Arabia too---especially all of those ultra rich pricks.  They are usually the ones who really like a dick in their ass.

"This is precisely what happened, and, as we see, the Iraqi Army is now in the field – with US support – trying to retake Mosul and Anbar, with limited success. Yet it’s not like we didn’t know this was coming – and didn’t have a hand in creating the problem we are now spending billions of dollars and even some American lives trying to “solve.”"

US is trying to solve something ??? Give me a break. US had no clue about Turkey-ISIS oil dealings ??? Come on. If the US wants to solve something then get the hell out of there and stop supplying these beheading-lovers.

They won't stone him, because he'll arrive stoned already.

Yup.  I shoulda bought some property in NZ 20 years ago.  It might still be easier to get a foreign bank-account if you do the property purchase thing.   I'm too old to care now (being 60) but if you are younger take a look at NZ.   It hella expensive but the south island is still cheep in some areas, and it's easy to own real-estate there, and once you own property the bank-accounts are easier to open.

Something to think about depending on your age and relationship obligations.

The Clown Price of Saudi meets the Clown Prince of USSA to discuss how to destroy the world.  If I am Russia I am pretty fucking livid at US foreign policy.  Seriously, advocating the removal of yet another democratically elected government just because they will not put our pipeline down.  Fucking retards.

I'm guessing the 28 pages will be more embarrassing to the US. An empty threat.

centerline's picture

Means tensions are reaching a new high.  Like when we were all kids and had to resort to "go ahead and tell so-and-so."  Either it's a last ditch bluff or pointing out that everyone is fucked if so-and-so actually finds out.

Don't forget, the hate target on here might be confusing.  You got the Jews,  the Zionists, the Muslims, the A-rabs,  and "those people".   If you direct your hate to the wrong target you weaken the hate we all depend on.

This common sense proposal woud be to the extreme consternation of the military industrial complex. That is something Trump may very well be looking to negotiate.

The US is a banana republic that prostitutes itself to the highest bidder. Everyone other than the 1% is expendable. That includes the US population.

Should we be allied with Assad and bombing the living shit out of 6th century goat fuckers in Saudi Arabia and the Emirates? 

We have two options...

1) Completely get out of the middle east and let the chips fall where they may. Fuck Iran, Iraq, Turkey, KSA, the Emirates, Israel, the whole lot. Let Allah, Jehovah, God sort that shit out. Then everyone handles the muslim (and oil supply) questions in their own countries, their own way. If the majority of muslims are indeed peaceful and can integrate into a society like other immigrants, then it'll sort itself out. If they insist on changing your country to suit their needs, then they need to leave. End of story.

2) Occupy MENA for the next two generations and play the role of Saddamizer, ASSad, Qadafi-duck, Mubuttfuckark, Saleheeeee. These people need brutal dictators to keep a lid on things.

Saudi Arabia executes gays, treats women like rodents, and buys tons of weapons from the US.  Then Hillary gets up and talks about gun control and how she is the candidate for gays and women.

here's Obama's, and Hilary's foreign policy, Saudi's tell them which countries are not agreeing with them politicaly, ' the hit list' so america, and nato carry out the hit.
