ethan's Musing on the Near East - Page 131

Lol lebanese foreign ministry just announced they have no knowledge about this.

Turns out the saudis made a phone call 2 days ago the prime minister and he said yeah sure.

It was just talk and there was no concrete proposals or discussions or anything and it didnt even go through any proper channels here.

I kind of wish yemen doesnt end in a ceasefire and houthis somehow march in riyad....

Absolutely impossible. It would be like shooting fish in a barrel if they tried to cross that desert.

Well in my wet dreams saudi arabia would be left to fight for itself. I bet they cant shoot fish in a barrel even.

Uncle Zahran says all the right things: http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2015/12/15/the-rebel-commander-of-damascus.html

 

"We do not believe that Syria should be ruled by sectarian or partisan rule, but by a technocratic body that represent the diversity of the Syrian people. We do not see ourselves as Islamic. We are Muslims."

I'd assume they purchase straight from the DOD. Much cheaper than buying from Boeing. The fact that they could afford a fleet of apaches alone shows how much money the company is making as mercenaries.
Buying an ah64e new is 41 million dollars with a run cost of nearly 4K an hour.

This is just conjecture but this could have alternate uses. I read an article where the Chinese explained how they couldn't intervene in the Middle East because they can't get the permission to answer many countries airspace. This is a great way to get Chinese logistical support to the Chinese military if they want to project themselves in places outside of the South China Sea.

Isis Twitter accounts 'tracked back to Department of Work and Pensions'

The government says it has sold a number of its unused IP addresses to other countries, including Saudi Arabia
Quote:
 

Hackers have claimed that at least three social media accounts linked to Islamist terror group Isis can be traced back to the Department of Work and pension.

The DWP denies owning the IP addresses associated with the accounts, and referred inquiries to advice issued by the Cabinet Office that IP addresses had been sold off.

 

The hackers, a group of four teenagers who call themselves VandaSec, passed details of IP addresses used to access Isis-supporting Twitter accounts to Mirror Online and showed that while the IP addresses appeared to be based in Saudi Arabia, they apparently led back to the DWP's offices in London.

 

The site quoted one of the hackers as saying: "Don't you think that's strange? We traced these accounts back to London, the home of the British intelligence services."

 according to bbc persian, lebanon is there. but no افغانستان or العـراق or ایران (all basically under one proxy/pseudo-empire lol)

Never mind the fact that these 30+ countries all happen to Sunni and have strong anti-Shia viewpoint being led by the father of all terrorists Saudia Arabia. These fuckers couldnt get together to help the Palestinian cause but God forbid if Iranian gains any influence.

 

I understand that this coalition has already been disbanded before it even kicked off but not before Nigeria drew 1st blood by shooting down a Shia procession killing anywhere from 80-900 people. Blacklivesmatter?

Rumor has it that the Kurds are getting ready to assault Jarablus with Russian air cover... stay tuned, kids.
