Saudi Arabia has come out in support of Bashar Assad.
Saudi Arabia has formally designated the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist group, official Saudi television reported citing a statement by the Interior Ministry.
The kingdom has also designated Nusra Front and the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant, whose fighters are battling Syrian President Bashar Assad, as terrorist organizations.
Last year, the Egyptian government intensified its crackdown on the Muslim Brotherhood and formally listed the group as a terrorist organization after accusing it of carrying out a suicide bomb attack on a police station that killed 16 people.
Interesting in so many ways. I thought that US policy was to support “the rebels” and take down Bashar Assad? And I thought the Saudis were our “allies”? Also that Syria was a satellite nation to Iran, an enemy of Saudi Arabia? Does this mean that Barack Obama and John Kerry have succeeded in uniting Saudi Arabia with Iran, under the rubric of “the enemy of my enemy is my friend”?
It is also interesting that Egypt suffers one little bombing and they take a nutty. Show restraint, guys, show restraint.
PS – More and more I believe that House of Cards is a documentary.
