Have You Heard The News?

The good news is that the Saudis have come up with a master plan for fighting ISIS….It seems that they now have a 34 nation coalition that will do the trick…..I said when I heard the news that it was too good to be true…..maybe I am a psychic….or something…..

Some key members of the 34-nation anti-Islamic State coalition announced by Saudi Arabia have a fundamental question: just what is it?

Indonesia did not know it was going to be a military alliance, which it does not want to join. A senior Pakistani lawmaker only learned the news from a Reuters reporter.

And while Western governments welcomed this week’s initiative, there was uncertainty over how it would work.

Comments from several of the countries that signed up to the initiative appeared to reveal a lack of preparation by Riyadh, which approached partners with an invitation to join a coordination centre but then announced a military alliance.

When Saudi Arabia’s Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman announced the new group at a sudden midnight press conference, he called it an “Islamic military coalition”, a description that appeared to surprise some of the governments involved.

OOPS!  Our Bad!

Looks like someone may have spoken too soon…..some of the countries have trust issues with the Saudis…..why?

Modern jihadist groups follow an extreme interpretation of Islam’s Salafi branch, of which Wahhabism was the original strain, and whose clerics regard Shi’ism as heresy, laud the concept of jihad, urge hatred of infidels and back harsh penalties for religious offences.

This is a problem….because?

Saudi is the home of the salafist movement and they follow a strict fundamental line of Islam…….sound familiar?

  1. If this is an Obama initiative then it is his best foreign policy move ever. Let them use their boots on the ground over there. Seems they are the best qualified to handle their own mess. Now let’s see if they do it.

    1. Frank Zappa to you lot……The success of religion is directly proportionate to the failure of education.
      Wot a joke…..
      Fat Saudies…grin

  2. Well. it might be if not for the butchering……men are so dumb…grin…especially fat Saudies/Salafists…

  3. 34-nation anti -ISIS coalition. Any plan on how they are going to put it into action? Are they going to bomb Kurds by mistake?

  4. Trust issues with the Saudis???? Hahahaha! That’s fucking hilarious!

    Gee, I dunno…they’re a corrupt, inbred, dictatorship that has a truly bizarre relationship with the American Empire. If I’m not mistaken, the term “frenemies” was invented to describe it. (Oil, AWACs, Saudis buying America, Israel & Saudis are enemies but both are “friends” & beneficiaries of US military gifting. The Saudis “urban renewal” the WTC and America destroys, or black markers over, all the evidence..etc, etc.)

    They routinely undercut OPEC’s efforts. They’re the homeland of the nut-job Islamic philosophies & philosophers they’re now trying save the world from. They invade their neighbour Yemen in a complete media blackout. They are some seriously untrustworthy motherfuckers!!!

    But a coalition? Who needs it? Egypt ALONE has more American-gifted tanks & fighter jets just sitting under sand dunes than ISIS has pickup trucks!

    If you include Eqypt’s entire stockpile, they might have a tank/jet for each & every member of ISIS! Combine that with the traffic jam in the sky already fighting ISIS….and how the fuck could these pick-up driving ass-clowns last a week? Of course the catch is that face to face, high casualty, fighting is required. And that’s something NO country wants to do.

    Hey, I got an idea! Why not get all the unused tanks that both the Egyptian AND American armies don’t use, or want….and drop them from bombers on ISIS??? Not only would that be incredibly fucking cool to watch, it would also be the only useful purpose those expensive military toys are ever going to serve.

      1. The only way to make it more cool would be if Santa & his reindeer could be enlisted to drop those unused military toys on ISIS from his sleigh!
