After the conclusion of the Iranian -western agreement, and after the strike of « sanity » that Americans took by retreating from a military strike against Syria, what is Saudi Arabia waiting for? What are the alternatives? Is the alternative finally giving Saudi Arabia leadership against the regime in Syria and its boss? Who exactly is convincing the leadership of the Arabian kingdom to do this? They seem to have not read the lessons of the recent past and present, about the relationship of the United States with its allies or friends?
The kingdom, which has managed over the long decades to impose its leadership in the Arab and Muslim world through the encirclement and annihilation of cases of nationalistic risings in the Arab world ( the rule of the late Jamal Abdel Nasser ) or through the use of other cases ( Saddam Hussein against Iran’s Islamic revolution ) or even through “coping” with the cases having the three ( the relationship with the late Hafez al-Assad ), based its strategies on the avoidance and even prevention of any Arab force bearing a national project that collapses the sectarian divisions and factionalism within the Arab societies , especially when knowing that this force will prevail , particularly in the areas where « Sunnis » are essential parts of these communities: the Kingdom lets lose its sectarian army of jihadists whenever danger is felt exactly like the one the leadership is feeling today. Today it finds itself facing a wall after its role and intentions were exposed through the conflict in Syria.
The kingdom has exhausted its means to surround the Iranian expansion in the Arab region through direct confrontation such as in Afghanistan or in Iraq. Other means of “defenses” to repel this stretch are now heading towards direct confrontation in other locations such as Yemen, Lebanon and Palestine. This drove Saudi Arabia to unleash the takfiri weapon and use it with no controls , especially in Syria , which made the regional and international powers afraid of the risks of the use of this weapon, or the relinquishing of the area to the tools of “Al Qaeda” and its front Al Nasra and its ilk…. So it was that the Kingdom was excluded from international meetings regarding the cases of Syria and the Iranian nuclear project and it (the kingdom) was put it in regional political isolation, especially after the rapprochement of Turkey and Iran and the beginning of the restoration of Egypt’s Arab national role and restoration of its Azhari Reference. Another international isolation was forced because of the stubbornness towards facts that may lead to what looks like political suicide, it (Saudi Arabia), having circumvented the wishes of the American « teacher » and bypassing it by lending a hand to intelligence cooperation with Israel. With that also comes the quasi- revolt against the wishes of the Saudi kingdom regarding then Iranian-American agreement: 4 GCC countries visit Tehran to bless this agreement. Another act of rebellion came when the Sultanate of Oman rejected converting said GCC Council led by Saudi Arabia to a Union in the face of Iran .
Maybe the height of political suicide is reached if it is proved that Saudi Arabia was directly involved in the bombing of the Iranian embassy in Beirut because it would have by then transferred the conflict to Iranian territory, considering that according to international treaties, embassies are considered part of the territory of the State.
To summarize, the Gulf states were supposed to invest, along with Turkey , in the so-called « Arab Spring » by distributing their influence through the religious-political-social (God knows what more) systems that will govern these countries, be it Wahhabism or the Muslim Brotherhood, but two things changed ALL their plans, namely: the steadfastness of the Syrian regime and the fall of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt . In doing so, Syria had halted the advancement of « Arab Spring », and Egypt has corrected the path of the Arab revolutions . And therefore it is a matter of time before shock waves arrive to the Gulf states, led by Saudi Arabia and Turkey , the latter seeking to return to the policy of « zero problems » with its surroundings, but chose to start this time from Iran .
