Another terrorist attack, another Saudi behind it.
Saudi Arabia has created a nightmarish society. Czarist Russia, without the culture, history, or tradition.
We are friends to Muslims, and enemies to salafist terrorists. We are friends of the Iraqi people, and enemies of the Ba’athi remnants. We are friends of the Afghan people, and enemies of the Taliban remnants. We are friends of Russia, and our interests lie in the oppressed Shia people of the oil-rich Saudi east.
Iran is our natural friend in this. While the Saudis cause no end of trouble and practice crucifiction, the Islamic Republic is about as democratic as AD 1904 Britain. Embracing Iran would be a tactical coup. Continuing to embrace the Saudis is a monumental disaster.
