Washington, you have a problem in Arabia!

John Sinclair

How does Washington reconcile its alleged enmity for the takfiri head-choppers but maintain close friendship with the Saudi head-choppers? Washington has a dilemma on its hands.

Politics, it is said, make for strange bedfellows but no politics are allowed in the archaic Kingdom of “Saudi” Arabia, the patch of desert sitting on a sea of oil. And America needs that black juice to keep its wheels turning. What happens when the oil runs out is a question the Washington warlords are not prepared to address; more weighty issues of here and now occupy their minds.

The dilemma they face is how to distinguish the bad takfiri beheaders from the good Saudi beheaders. The takfiris are presented as the “enemy” while the Saudis as “friends.” What is never mentioned, at least in public so far, is that Saudi Arabia, as well as the thousands of madrasahs it has financed worldwide, are the incubators where the takfiri monsters are produced.

America also faces another dilemma. The takfiris not only indulge in gruesome killings, with all the gore and blood including the barbaric burning alive of a luckless Jordanian pilot whose US-supplied F-16 plane crashed in takfiri-held territory, but also use modern technology to project their grotesque acts. And these are filmed to Hollywood standards, no less.

Are the Americans setting up the Saudis for a fall?
