“Arab” army to the rescue?

Abdullah McGuire

Arabian rulers are strong on rhetoric but they lack competence. The idea of an “Arab” army is still-born because there are different groups vying for their own interests.

Whatever happened to the idea of the “Arab” army whose formation was announced with such fanfare during the Arab League “summit” in Sharm el-Sheikh on March 28–29? The Egyptian Pharaoh, Abdel Fattah el-Sisi proposed it. He has a large standing army but his country is dirt poor. He thought he could rent some of his soldiers to fellow dictators to shore up their regimes.

There is great panic in Arabian capitals over the rapidly deteriorating situation in the region. America is moving out aware that protecting these clowns is not worth it anymore. Washington’s only obsession is to protect the illegitimate Zionist entity. That is fairly secured at present because Arabian regimes have surrendered to the Zionists. The “Arab” army’s real purpose is to protect fellow potentates from their people’s wrath. It is a hopeless cause.
