Prince Bandar back in the Driver’s Seat in Riyadh

Prince Bandar bin Sultan bin Abdulazia bin Saud is the godfather behind the creation of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), now called the «Islamic State» or «Islamic Caliphate»... Bandar has returned to an influential position advising King Abdullah after being sacked as Saudi intelligence chief last April. Bandar's new title is «adviser to the King and his special envoy»... CIA director John O. Brennan, a Saudophile and former CIA station chief in Riyadh, reportedly played a hand in the restoration of Bandar to a key position in the Saudi government... Bandar's goal is to eliminate the current governments of Syria and Iraq, thus depriving Iran of its only two allies in the region...

Saudi Arabia: The US President’s Futile Trip

...The story of Riyadh’s nuclear cooperation with Islamabad, including the acquisition of missiles capable of delivering nuclear warheads over long ranges, goes back decades. This has been discussed by Gary Samore in particular, who until March 2013 was the White House Coordinator for Arms Control and Weapons of Mass Destruction. He wanted to understand (since it is still unclear) why the US is not objecting to Saudi Arabia’s nuclear plans, seeing as there is a risk of the rivalry between Iran and Saudi Arabia turning into a global conflict...

Obama Launches Reset of Saudi Ties

What emerges from Obama’s visit to Saudi Arabia is that Washington’s strongest relationship in the Arab world, which has been with Riyadh, is in historic shift. Arguably, the US’ path to energy independence dilutes the dense economic interdependence between the two partners but that is not the whole story and is probably not even the main story... The heart of the matter is that Saudi Arabia fears that Obama is pursuing a deal on Iran’s nuclear program, which may eventually end the US economic sanctions against Iran and, in turn, "empower" Tehran to play an optimal role in regional affairs...

Barack Obama and Saudi Arabia: Behind the Scenes of the Visit

...Official sources report that during the negotiations with King Abdullah, President Obama only rejected the idea of direct U.S. military strikes against Syria.  Obama considered everything else, including the delivery of MANPADs to the rebels, to be possible. White House representatives do not speak plainly about this; they begin to prevaricate, but the question can essentially be considered resolved. After the negotiations, it is clear that this summer Riyadh and Washington, in partnership with other «friends of Syria», will once again try to use weapons to «close the issue» of al-Asad and of the Syrian Arab Republic in its current form...

USA and Saudi Arabia are preparing a major deal against Russia and Iran

Beginning on Obama's visit to Saudi Arabia will turn the scale transaction. Whatever eluded official American representatives direct questions about the agenda of the talks the U.S. president with the Saudis, it is now clear that the focus will be on issues in Ukraine, Syria and joint steps in the "game for a fall" in energy prices. And from this the inevitable logical to conclude that this transaction will be directed against Russia and Iran.

Washington and Riyadh a Step Away from a «Final Solution» to the Syrian Issue

Recently the Syrian issue has flared up once more. Heated discussions in American political circles and emotional speeches from participants of the Arab League conference in Kuwait March 25-26 are not a discussion of plans for the peaceful resolution of the Syrian conflict; they are a debate about which method for capturing Damascus and overthrowing President al-Asad will be most effective... Now Americans see Syria as a way to get «revenge for Crimea» and the capture of Damascus as an opportunity to deprive Moscow of all its positions in the Middle East... Obama is to visit Riyadh March 28-29. At the end of the week it will apparently become clear what path al-Asad’s opponents have chosen for the «final solution» to the Syrian issue.

"Saudi trump card" in the American game in Ukraine

Having exhausted the possibilities of direct pressure on Russia in connection with the events in the Crimea and Ukraine, Washington floated its strategic reserve - the potential of Saudi Arabia and other Gulf monarchies. White House appealed to the leadership of these countries to contribute with $ 15 billion in the package "urgent economic assistance" Kiev.

US New Syria Strategy: Will it Succeed?

...The second round of negotiations held within the framework of Geneva conference on Syria (Geneva-2.1) has stymied, the remaining two days will not produce any result... The anti-Syria coalition, including the United States, appears to lose interest in the dialogue it has imposed. The matter is that the main events related to final settlement of the Syria issue are taking place away from Switzerland. The US-submitted draft U.N. Security Council resolution on humanitarian aid access in Syria has failed to come through. Washington is high-strung while urgently preparing a new Syria strategy and defining its stance towards Bashar Assad... It actually means that the United States along with other members of anti-Syria opposition needs no window-dressing like the Geneva 2.1 conference anymore. In practice the talks are unproductive and the propaganda agenda of the play called «opposition striving for a national dialogue vs. stubborn and insidious dictator Assad» has been exhausted...

The Barriers to Iranian – American Rapprochement: Israel and Saudi Arabia (II)

Among US clients and allies in the Middle East there are fears that the security of their regimes had been compromised or that the US has secretly sold them off during its bilateral and multilateral negotiations with Iran. The Saudi-controlled media and its propagandists went into overdrive frantically deriding and lamenting Washington’s decision to engage Tehran in direct and public high-level diplomatic dialogue whereas Israeli leaders said that the agreement should be rescinded...

Pyrrhic Victories over Geneva 2 Conference

The good thing is that the United Nations and the United Sates might have ‘won’ and ‘lost’ during the forty-eight hours in the run-up to the Geneva 2 conference scheduled to begin on Wednesday. Seldom has an international peace conference been held under such strange circumstances... The mystique of diplomacy is that sometimes what is won could turn out to be Pyrrhic victory. Has the US won a Pyrrhic victory?..

Theresa May Raises an Old and Discredited Canard

British Home Secretary Theresa May, who has found herself in the middle of a huge pedophilia cover-up scandal involving top leaders of her Conservative Party, has found time to raise an old canard: the death by radiation poisoning of international ne’er-do-well and former Soviet and Russian intelligence agent Alexander Litvinenko... It is clear that May is conveniently using the downing of Malaysian Airlines 17 in eastern Ukraine to turn up pressure on Russia...
