Syrian regime warplanes bomb ISIS on Iraq border, becoming our ally
Warplanes from the regime of Syria’s president Bashar al-Assad struck at positions held by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) along the border between Syria and Iraq. Initial reports indicated that the warplanes’ targets were within Iraq, though reports differ. According to Iraq’s president Nouri al-Maliki:
“There was no coordination involved, but we welcome this action. We welcome any Syrian strike against Isis, because this group targets both Iraq and Syria… But we didn’t make any request from Syria. They carry out their strikes and we carry out ours. The final winners are our two countries.”
This makes the Syria regime our ally in Iraq, but our enemy in Syria. Iran is also our ally in Iraq, and our enemy in Syria.
In fact, late news is that the Obama administration is asking the US Congress to approve $500 million to train and equip “moderate” opposition forces in Syria. So keep your scorecards up to date, Dear Reader.
As I said many years ago, based on a Generational Dynamics analysis, Iran will be our ally and the Sunni Arab states will be our enemy in the approaching Clash of Civilizations world war. These trends are moving the region in that direction. BBC and Guardian (London)
Saudi Arabia’s armed forces on high alert as ISIS approaches
With the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) having taken control of border posts in Iraq on the border with Jordan, putting Saudi Arabia’s security in danger, Saudi King Abdullah has put the army and security forces on the highest alert. According to the Saudi state-run news agency:
“Anticipating (that) the terrorist organizations or others might carry out actions that might disturb the security of the homeland, the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques has ordered taking all necessary measures to protect the gains of the homeland and its territories in addition to the security and stability of the Saudi people.”
