Arab League To Hold Urgent Meeting On Iran As Saudis Reportedly Mobilize Fighter Jets

Tyler Durden's picture

The Arab League is set to hold an emergency meeting on Iran at Saudi Arabia's request, this according to Reuters and various regional sources, at a moment when Saudi fighter jets may be mobilizing for war in an attempted show of force. Egypt-based Ahram Online also reports further that the meeting will discuss "Iranian interference" in the region at League headquarters in Cairo, and other early unconfirmed reports indicate the meeting could come as early as next Sunday.

News of the Arab League extraordinary session comes as tensions are at breaking point as regional powers - especially Saudi Arabia and Israel - talk war against perceived Iranian expansion and domination in the Middle East.

Meanwhile, The Daily Star, citing the Baghdad Post, claims that Saudi Arabia has scrambled its air force for strikes in Lebanon: "Reports now state the Royal Saudi Air Force has placed its warplanes on alert to launch strikes as the region sits on a knife edge." The report accompanies undated footage of Saudi F-15's in aerial maneuvers over what is presumably a Saudi airfield.

The Daily Star adds the following accompanying the video:

The kingdom has mobilized its F-15 fighter jet fleet to launch a military operation against the Iranian-backed terrorist militia of Hezbollah in Lebanon, regional news website The Baghdad Post reports.


Saudi Arabia previously accused both Lebanon and Iran of committing an act of wars against it after rebels fired a missile at the King Khalid International Airport in the kingdom's capital of Riyadh.

Saudi Arabia has reportedly placed its air force on alert

However unlikely it is that the Saudis would take direct military action against Lebanon, the report reveals the legitimate fears of Lebanese citizens who are increasingly aware that their country has fallen in the cross hairs of an unusual alliance between Saudi Arabia, Israel, and anti-Iranian interests which see Hezbollah and pro-Iranian proxies as the number one threat and scapegoat for all of the region's problems. 

Iran is currently being scapegoated for just about all tensions which have exploded in the gulf over the past week, including the following:

  • the civil war in Yemen,
  • the Qatar economic blockade and isolation over accusations that it is "Iran friendly",
  • the latest civil unrest in Bahrain and the alleged bombing of a major oil pipeline there,
  • ratcheting up tensions with Israel in support of Hezbollah,
  • destabilizing Lebanon itself leading to PM Saad Hariri's "resignation" - all of this precipitating the Saudi "night of the long knives".

As many astute pundits have pointed out, it's now "blame Iran time" according to the official Saudi (and allies) narrative of events in order to set the stage for public support for potential military action against Iran.

"Arab League" mean the one where you're a member until the zionists want to attack, then the others remove you from the group.  There's really no such thing as the "Arab League".

If you're still falling for the whole "poor Israel surrounded by enemies" meme, there's little hope for you.  These antichrist jews are so brazen they don't care that you see their hand steering the likes of "ISIS", Saudi Arabia, al-CIA-da, etc.  If one stooge can't get the job done, they just switch to another.  Pay attention to the hand, not the muppets.

The coming Middle East war:

Saudi Arabia attacks Iran on false pretences. Israel joins in to attack Iran in support of its bloodline cousins in Saudi and the US joins in because, well, Israel tells it to. Russia joins in to support Iran, possibly China too.

Other Gulf countries Bahrain, UAE join in and before we know what's what, Dubai will not be a nice place to visit nor to own one of those expensive homes on Palm Island. David Beckham, are you listening?

The zionists have their proselytes in the "Judeo-Christian" oxymoron cult itching and getting antsy.  They think they can support the antichrists and build an empire, force their privately created "prophecies" to take place, and then get beamed out by Scotty while others suffer the consequences of the cult's actoins.  So deluded and desperately needing to read the scriptures without the leaven of the Pharisees.

The Neocons have concocted quite a menagerie to get their war on with Iran. Instead of blowing up one country at a time, looks like the neocons are  hellbent on setting the entire Middle East ablaze.

It's probably for the best.

More consolidation of Israeli power... when SA turned on their own (not the first time but possibly the most shocking and absurdly justified) and pulled that shit on Qatar it must have been really shocking to many in the kingdom.  At that point it became not only glaringly obvious that they were just a vassal for Israel and Globalism, but nobody knows who is next.  Whatever loyalty left to their fellow Arabs has probably been thoroughly routed out now, for now.  They have proven themselves to be unpredictable and predatory both to their own citizens (as always) and to any other potential power rivals left.  They have backed all other royalty into a corner and they very likely could end up completely screwed at any minute.  I am sure the other Saudi princes wont be so thrilled with their own being tortured either.  

It would be amazing if this was the beginning of the fall of the House of Saud.  Israel would have a seizure.  It would also be amazing if Israel fell right after them.  I HAVE A DREAM!

Oil is abiotic. The Earth makes more every day.

/sarc Yes, the earth chose to make more in West Texas because it likes us: has nothing to do with the inland sea that was here 100's of millions of years ago. /end sarc

Plentiful oil clustered in quarternary strata migrating to saline and salt domes is a blessing from a mass extinction.  That takes a huge catastrophe to make that much oil.


We may so bless the future insect overlords millions of years from now. 

shovelhead's picture

That's because the Earth is flat, Right?

ebear's picture

So, 50 million years from now we'll have all the oil we could ever want?  Nice.


techpriest's picture

Whichever it is, if 1 million bpd are being generated every day, and we're consuming 80 million bpd, we're still going to "run out" of oil, because we will consume it faster than it is being generated.

The theory is that abiotic carbon (carbonate decomposition) and water under the conditions we would see in the mantle would become reactive enough in the presence of hot minerals to undergo the water-gas shift reaction, and thereby generate "fossil" fuels. However, it would only accumulate under geological conditions that would contain the resulting methane gas, and then you would next need more heat, time, and some zeolite (acidic) minerals to polymerize the methane into more complex molecules. This is plausible, but there is still an upper limit on how fast this generation process would take place.

Murder is against the law but when there is no law then the American people have become responsible for the murder of millions and millions of innocent third world families. And make no mistake, the planes and the attack aircraft may carry the insignia of the Saudis, but they might as well be labeled USA. And it is not to defend freedom or the American way of life that they attack the innocent; it is to serve the interests of the State of Israel.

My guess is, CNN will proclaim “Saudi Air Force jets have shot down [x] Iranian combat aircraft today!”

But the truth will be, US Navy and USAF jets operating over the Gulf will have been the real triggermen.

OMG the HUMANITY !!! Just when you think the USS of A has unleashed the deadliest weapons of war be it Air Force Neutron Bombs, Marine Hell Fire Drones, Army Tactical Close air support attack helicopters and the killing machines like the Army Rangers, Green Berets, and Marine Scout Snipers ; the USN in an effort to have the brightest and baddest of the SF community yesterday canceled the Navey SEAL program and has replaced it with TJB program. As everyone in the world has recognized the skill set of the USN SEALS as top notch the new TJB operatives make SEALS look like pussys. THB's commonly are heard saying :

"Hey Navy Seal ...did your mommy pack your juice box and snak pack for you today"??? Or "Did your mommy make you cookies for your BUDS training show & tell today" ....

The TJB will put the fear of God in you , The Taliban , Al Queida , Vlad Putin, Lil' Kim , and all other challengers. The International War Tribunal in The Hague has threatened to outlaw the TJB under the guise of cruel and horrible weapons of war similar to serrated knives , mustard gas and Nerve gas .

The only thing that seemed to come out of the very brief interaction between Trump and Putin in Vietnam (ironic prior victim of this same BS) was that they were going to keep the lines of communication open.  That isn't encouraging either.

As if there are no natural born killers in the KSA, that need only the existence of the House of Saud as a raison d'etre for violence.

Keep in mind that the alleged rocket was rather randomly fired off in the direction of the airport.

We were first told it was Yemen. Then it became Iranian influenced Yemen, then it became Lebanon, by which they meant Hezbollah under the influence of Iran.

At the same time, a major coup in the Royal house.

External War is a good distraction and a unifying cause to direct public anger away from the Royal house and internal issues.

It would be nice to be able to Ctrl-Alt-Delete at this point.

Ms No's picture

War can be a unifying cause but when you have problems being exposed as a cuck for Israel and then go and attack more Arabs it is just as likely to make things worse.  Then reality breaches the propaganda for everybody to see.  The people of SA almost certainly do not want to make war on their own for Israel.  Now other royals are under threat too.  Their only friends will be globalists, who they should know will sell them out in a second, or even destroy SA to get to Iran.  HOS have pretty much murdered and tortured as far as they can to intimidate their population.  Now they are giving out gifts (sign that they are worried about pacifying population).  You could have the abused population and the faction under siege unite, or one goad the other on.  Also they are making themselves the enemy of the outside Arab and Persian world at the same time.  This isn't a good spot for them.  Anything could happen here.

Vilfredo Pareto's picture

The only hole in that theory is the majority in Saudi Arabia do not see shia as "one of their own"
