The coming war between Saudi Arabia and Iran
I think most of the countries in the Middle East will be drawn in. The only winners will be Israel and US frackers.
SA is Sunni and Iran is Shiite and they already hate each other. Just hate non-mus-slimes more.
I hope the House of Saud kills every mullah and ayatollah they can find. For those of you that know nothing of Iran, before the Muslims were ignited by Jimmy Carter abandoning the Shah for Khomeini, this was Iran.
Iran was a friend of the U.S.
1969 Worked for Brown and Root on a new naval base/harbor in Iran. Remember hearing a few people talk about how great the country was (and our pay was great). Project was halted for a while because the Shaw requested a "Turning Basin" large enough to accommodate ships U.S. aircraft carriers.
Didn't pay attention for years and was surprised, to say the least, the Shaw of Iran was in exile and the the Ayatollah Khomeini was put into power by ??. France had been keeping the Ayatollah "on ice" because he wasn't allowed into Iran.
Carter and France,, a pair matched in , wherever.
Almost immediately trouble started. Your film link shows what was lost in just a few short MONTHS. How could Iran let that happen?? Probably will say the same about the U.S. someday.
The U.S. can be it's own worst enemy.
Trumps young Saudi friend seems to be running a coup or power grab...
And very little news about the big missile that hit Saudi Arabia
The Saudis have a lot of foreign mercenaries and paid non citizen soldiers with decent equipment
They have troops engaged in several places right now
Lots going on.
