Iraq & Saudi Arabia
By Micah Halpern

Tuesday December 19, 2006

I'm Predicting:

If the United States were to pull out of Iraq now, Saudi Arabia would step in and supporting the Sunnis of Iraq.

That's not great insight - it's a fact.

The Saudis cannot countenance Iran supporting the Shiites in Iraq especially when the Shiites are killing the Sunnis.

The Sunnis need a sugar daddy to help them kill Shiites and the Saudis are the sweetest deal they could have.

There is no love lost between Iran and Saudi Arabia.
The Saudis have actually said, point blank, that this is their intention.

The Saudis will not allow a trouncing in Iraq.

So what's my point?

This cannot fall into the category of the law of unforeseeable consequences.
