commentary on Politics and a little bit of everything else

The Saudi’s move to blunt Iran in the Middle East and become the Top Player there….

I touched on this briefly after the Egyptians sent Mubarak packing….

The truth is no matter how much the media hypes it up…

The United States is just a bystander in the Middle East and North Africa….

The Saudi’s know that…

They have watched American President’s come and go….

Blah…Blah…Peace …

Yea right….

The fact is …

There is no peace ….

In addition…

By Bush II beating up Iraq and Saddam Hussein …

He upset a natural balance in the region….

Most people forget that the US had been working WITH Iraq to keep their eight war going on….

Iran had no time to mess with other countries in the region with Saddam constantly probing the Iranian’s militarily….

But…

After Iraq ceased to be a fighting force…..

Iran looked around the region and began to export instability and influence….

Then the Egyptian political thing happened and the ‘democracy’ was off to the races….

That movement was strong but not channeled…

It struck out across the Middle East and North Africa and probably scared the shit out of ever ruler….

And the Iranians of course saw a means to spread their brand like all political systems do….

America with its hands full in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and relief work in Japan has been ineffective in dealing with Iran….

Several infantile attempts at over throwing the Political system in that country have resulted in crushing lock downs on its young people….

All this while that countries leader’s pursue the ‘Nuclear Option’…..

Which the west  and Israeli’s have been force to attack with computer viruses instead of direct action…

No wonder the Saudi’s have decided to combat eth influence of Iran on it’s own….

The United States constantly has this internal argument in the media on WHEN will we leave the region with our Armies , Navies and Aircraft…..

No IF…..

So they have stuck out on their own …

Which of course in the right thing for them to do…

It’s their butts that are on the line…..

And we shouldn’t be so worried at the linked piece below declares…

It’s about time someone else is leading the band…

We American’s are tired….

Saudi Arabia is rallying Muslim nations across the Middle East and Asia to join an informal Arab alliance against Iran, in a move some U.S. officials worry could draw other troubled nations into the sectarian tensions gripping the Arab world.

Saudi officials have approached Pakistan, Malaysia, Indonesia and Central Asian states to lend diplomatic support—and potentially military assistance in some cases—to help stifle a majority Shiite revolt in Sunni-led Bahrain, a conflict that has become a symbol of Arab defiance against Iran.

Saudi Arabia’s efforts, though against a common enemy, signal increasing friction with the Obama administration. Its invitation to Pakistan in particular could complicate U.S. security goals in South Asia. The push also complicates U.S. efforts to guide popular uprisings in the Middle East toward a peaceful and democratic conclusion.

The chief of the Saudi National Security Council, Prince Bandar bin Sultan al Saud, asked Pakistan’s powerful generals in March to lend support for the operation in Bahrain, according to Pakistani, U.S. and Saudi officials briefed on the meetings.

Prince Bandar—who was the Saudi ambassador to Washington for more than two decades—told the Pakistani generals that the U.S. shouldn’t be counted on to restore stability across the Middle East or protect Pakistan’s interests in South Asia, these officials say.

U.S. officials working with Saudi Arabia acknowledged in recent days Riyadh’s frustration with Washington’s policies but believe the relationship can be stabilized. “They are not happy with us, and are really nervous about Iran,” said an American official. “But I don’t think they are going to go too far.”
