SAUDI ARABIA TO DEPLOY MILITARY FORCES INTO EASTERN SYRIA AT TRUMP’S REQUEST 4-19-2018

Well, the Trump Presidency has certainly been both an interesting one, as well as entertaining, in the we are all going to die style. The latest news out of Syria indicates that, as the various groups line up to attack US forces now building permanent firebases, and deploying into them, Trump has come up with plan B; namely, declare victory, hold a parade and then run like hell. In order to leave some kind of stability in Syria the idea is now to deploy an “Arab Force,” to take over from the retreating NATO forces, mostly, not all, but most are Americans. Like I said in an earlier post: follow both the money, the oil and the pipelines. Assuming Saudi Arabia really is lunatic enough to deploy its military into Eastern Syria, things could get real interesting, very quickly.

The first point I will make is that based on the combat performance of Saudi Arabia’s military in the Iranian/Saudi Arabian proxy war in Yemen, Iran, Assad Junior and Hezzbollah will not be impressed. The second point is this. What kind of reaction can any Muslim military force, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, etc expect when they deploy into Syria. The answer is it will trigger off round 300 in the 1300 year long civil war between the Shia Muslims, and the Sunni Muslims. The Sunni forces of Saudi Arabia will come against the Shia forces of Iran, Hezzbollah, and Assad Junior. Saudi Arabia will merely extend the Yemen proxy war with Iran to Syria. The Turks will try to stand back and pick up the pieces. The Russians, well Putin is likely starting to realize he needs to declare victory, hold a parade and leave. Oh wait, Putin already did that. Unfortunately for Putin, the Syrian Kraken shot out a tentacle and pulled him back in. At the minimum, Putin is going to have to seriously beef up Assad Junior’s military forces.

While our POTUS may think he is exiting Syria what will really happen is a religious war between the Sunni and Shia Muslim factions will explode; when, not if, that happens Israel will then be sucked under by the Kraken. If Saudi Arabia and Egypt deploy Sunni military forces into Syria, then the Shia forces will fight back. If they fight back, then Israel will get sucked back in. If Israel gets sucked into Syria, then the USA and NATO will get sucked back in. It isn’t like this is rocket science here, gang.

Saudi in talks with US over troop deployment in Syria

Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir says Riyadh is willing to send soldiers amid reports Trump is looking to exit Syria.

18 Apr 2018

Saudi Arabia is holding talks with the United States about sending troops into Syria as part of a wider international coalition, the kingdom’s foreign minister has said.

In his comments on Tuesday, Adel al-Jubeir said the deployment offer was “not new”, adding that Riyadh had previously proposed the idea to former US President Barack Obama.

“We are in discussion with the US, and have been since the beginning of the Syrian crisis about sending forces into Syria,” al-Jubeir told reporters in Riyadh during a press conference alongside Antonio Guterres, the UN chief.

“We made a proposal to the [previous] Obama administration that if the US were to send forces … then Saudi Arabia would consider along with other countries sending forces as part of this contingent.”

The kingdom announced its readiness to deploy ground troops in 2016 to fight the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, also known as ISIS) in Syria.

While Saudi’s air force partook in the aerial campaign aimed at defeating ISIL from the very beginning in 2014, the Gulf kingdom stopped short of a full ground troop deployment.

US forces in Syria
The news came a day after the Wall Street Journal reported US President Donald Trump was looking to assemble an Arab force that would include Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates to replace US military presence in Syria.

The force, which Trump’s new National Security Adviser John Bolton hopes will include Egypt, would be in charge of stabilising the northeastern part of Syria, according to the report.

Al Jazeera’s Patty Culhane, reporting from Washington, DC, noted that the US defence establishment “is going to be very wary” of the Saudi plan.

“There’s great concern among leadership inside the [US] military about the ability of Saudi forces – just look at the war in Yemen that the US has been helping them fight with intelligence and refuelling,” said Culhane.

“There have been humanitarian catastrophes, numbers of schools and hospitals that have been hit, raising big concerns among human rights activists.”

Another key question is what will happen to US troops in Syria and whether they are expected to stay as part of an expanded mission, added Culhane.

“[It is] not at all clear that Trump is going to be OK with that,” she added.

The US has an estimated 2,000 troops stationed inside Syria, according to the Pentagon.
