King let Bandar Bush create this problem-Now he warns us we're going to be victims of their creation

With Allies Like These, Who Needs Enemies?
I think lightning should strike him or something.

So, the king let Bandar Bush create this problem and now he warns us that we’re going to be the victims of his creation if we don’t bring some serious violence to the situation:


King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia has warned that the West will be the next target of the jihadists sweeping through Syria and Iraq, unless there is “rapid” action.

“If we ignore them, I am sure they will reach Europe in a month and America in another month,” he said in remarks quoted on Saturday by Asharq al-Awsat daily and Saudi-backed Al-Arabiya television station.

“Terrorism knows no border and its danger could affect several countries outside the Middle East,” said the king who was speaking at a welcoming ceremony on Friday for new ambassadors, including a new envoy from Saudi ally the United States.

1. Saudi dictators that helped create ISIS should not be getting air time anywhere in the world.

That this repugnant super fascist is beloved of Fox News tells you all you need to know about the credibility of both.

Yes, the American mass media and mad media both welcomes anyone willing to beat war drums and stoke fear.

3. It sure does:

10 Jun 2007
A criminal investigation by the Serious Fraud Office - which is understood to have discovered the payments but not whether they were illegal - was controversially dropped "in the interests of national security" last year, after Tony Blair warned that the Saudis, vital allies in the war on terror and a stabilising force in the Middle East, would stop sharing anti-terrorist intelligence if the inquiry continued.

November 2, 2007
Bandar -- now Abdullah's national security adviser -- said Saudi intelligence was "actively following" most of the September 11, 2001, plotters "with precision."
"If U.S. security authorities had engaged their Saudi counterparts in a serious and credible manner, in my opinion, we would have avoided what happened," he said.
http://www.cnn.com/2007/WORLD/meast/11/01/saudiarabia.terrorism/index.html

Former Senator Bob Graham: "If you feel, as I do, that there WAS a network of support for the 9/11 hijackers, what reason do we have to believe that that network was abandoned immediately after 9/11. What reason do we have to believe that it's not in existence today, ready to be used for a future attack against the United States?"

7. Almost no one remembers the Saudi telethon after 911

But that sticks in my mind. Now, SA telling us we better do something about ISIS or else.

Why do the Saudis sit silence? Haven't we given them enough fire power for them to take matters into their own hands if they feel ISIS is such a threat?

4. Think of it this way

 

The hundreds of gas fill-ups in your car over the years have given that kingdom all kinds of money with which they have caused all kinds of problems in their region.

It has even been said that we invaded Iraq partly at the king's request so that a secular Iraq could not influence SA's kingdom, or cause lower oil prices.

But then I'm a conspiracy theorist.

8. Well then stop funding them and scramble your jets and while you're at it stop

promoting the same extremism.

The most useful target of our bombs and "nation building" would be the Saudis.

9. Saudi Arabia is the Capitol of the BFEE

Know your BFEE: War and Oil are just two longtime Main Lines of Business

Since way before the Safari Club served as CIA Capital.
