As to the 'cooperation' between Russia, and Saudi is because Saudi's HATE Israel.

Saudis remember FDR's broken promise

The whole M.E is confusing...

There is really nothing to be confused about.

The middle east is the real life version of Game of Thrones.

Nothing but a bunch of people using and snipping each other over to get ahead.

Yeah well, blame it on the super blood moon...

It was kind of expected, that things will go downhill after the blood moon. Prove me wrong

To push the Game of Thrones reference a tad bit further.

7 kingdoms.

The Seven sisters:

The "Seven Sisters " was a term coined in the 1950s by businessman Enrico Mattei, then-head of the Italian state oil company Eni, to describe the seven oil companies which formed the "Consortium for Iran" cartel and dominated the global petroleum industry from the mid-1940s to the 1970s.[1

The new seven sisters:

Saudi Aramco (Saudi Arabia)
China National Petroleum Corporation (China)
Gazprom (Russia)
National Iranian Oil Company (Iran)
Petrobras (Brazil)
PDVSA (Venezuela)
Petronas (Malaysia)

I guess the last holdout was Saudi, but now they are cozying up to Russia now.

Russia and their allies can do two things here.

Flood the market, and destroy western oil companies or hold the world hostage with sky high prices.

Oh and the dollar/oil per barrel is gone if they wanted too.

Meanwhile the West is playing checkers going 'king' me.

Yup. All the while the US and Russia use their middle eastern pawns to secure their precious resources. Guaranteed US exit from the mid east once oil is no longer the predominant source of its energy. There will be nothing left for that region to offer except death and destruction. I say let the animals eat each other up once we're out.

The US is playing a much bigger game. Just biding their time before they cut and run.

They were defeated by dirt farming in reds in Afghanistan less than 3 decades ago...and their government subsequently collapsed and a coup was launch(albeit unsuccessfully).

Russia was there for nine years and Afghanistan had help from America. We have been there for longer and who is helping Afghanistan now?

We beat that same foe in a couple of months....spare me your glorification of Russia.

Couple of months what planet are you on? Try 13 years War in Afghanistan (2001–14). And what is this glorification of Russia crap coming from face it you were wrong about their military.

Communism is a pathetic ethos and its tenants sound like the ramblings of an east Texas beauty contestant... The most ironic part of communism is that pseudo-intellects have constructed an algorithm in their brains whose sum equates to paradise....(homonym puns all over the place)

Talk about being ignorant of history. Russia is not communist it's a capitalist system now.

Anyhow, Russia and its populace(mostly due to 1st trimester fetal alcohol exposure) is a dying star long since bereft of societal intellectual prowess....let alone military prowess.

Got any links to back up this ignorant statement.

The Alliance Between Israel And Saudi Arabia
Their mutual hatred of Iran is getting them to team up.

The good news is that Russia has a pathetic army...and an even more pathetic work ethic(as a society)...and that's to say nothing about the poor innate, inherent IQ of its alcohol imbibing populace....

Once we get a new president with a backbone, America will [again] put that pathetic socialist parasite in its place...


Are you a real human or a parody account?

originally posted by: babybunniesI get the whole holocaust thing, but given there are only about 12 million Jews in the world compared to over a billion each for Islam and Christianity, I fail to see how Judaism is considered "one of the world's great religions".

Quantity does not = quality!

"If the statistics are right, the Jews constitute but one quarter of one percent of the human race.
It suggests a nebulous dim puff of stardust lost in the blaze of the Milky Way.
Properly, the Jew ought hardly to be heard of; but he is heard of, has always been heard of.
He is as prominent on the planet as any other people, and his importance is extravagantly out of proportion to the smallness of his bulk.
His contributions to the world's list of great names in literature, science, art, music, finance, medicine and abstruse learning are very out of proportion to the weakness of his numbers.
He has made a marvellous fight in this world in all ages; and has done it with his hands tied behind him.
He could be vain of himself and be excused for it.
The Egyptians, the Babylonians and the Persians rose, filled the planet with sound and splendour; then faded to dream-stuff and passed away: the Greeks and the Romans followed and made a vast noise, and they are gone; other peoples have sprung up and held their torch high for a time but it burned out, and they sit in twilight now, or have vanished.
The Jew saw them all, survived them all, and is now what he always was, exhibiting no decadence, no infirmities of age, no weakening of his parts, no slowing of his energies, and no dulling of his alert and aggressive mind.
All things are mortal but the Jew; all other forces pass, but he remains.
What is the secret of his immortality?"
(Mark Twain – Harper’s magazine - September 1887)

A questionable list, at best - it ranks Russia as second, but why? They have limited capability to project power, much of their army is poorly trained conscripts using mostly 70's/80's era machinery, the CnC is still the outdated model used during the Cold War.

Given the methodology they have used, it seems Russia is only pushed up to second because of their huge Oil reserves. It also seems to rank Russia highly because they have "15,398" battle tanks - totally ignoring the fact much of them are outdated and outclassed by other MBT's. The same goes with the Naval and Air power - yes, they might have more aircraft for example but ignores the quality.

Russia like America are the leaders when it comes to new weapons tech not to mention some of the best training available.

Personally I think the leaders of Saudi Arabia hate everyone. They play nice when it benefits them. With the US backing down they know better then to provoke Russia.

Yeah they do.

Hell the US/Saudi alliance has been eye opening.

Them constantly stabbing us in the back for the last 15 years.

The fact that Bin Laden was Saudi.

The fact the 19 hijackers were SAUDI.

With 'allies' like Saudi who the hell needs 'enemies' ?

Hmm so living somewhere makes you an expert? Are you a political science major? Or did you peak out your window and know everything. And what does living in Isreal have to do with ancient Jerusalem. Palestinians are far from the first settlers. They are immigrants just like the jews. In fact everyone everywhere are immigrants to their homeland.

The ignorance spouted off by the people riding putins little weiner waiting for it to go off is ridiculous. Fact is he wouldn't spend one dime on an offensive campaign unless he thought the return would be greater. Everyone last one of you are blind.

I guess we can't get over the Yugo. They haven't proven much since the fall of the Soviet Union so I don't see how one could think that they've magically turned it all around. Russia is actually still considered a developing country.

Who are we kidding here? The US knew what Russia's plans were. Too bad Russia doesn't have many other friends left so Crimea and Syria is where their silly games end.

I read this again the other day:

The Balfour declaration letter of 1917:

"His Majesty's government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use their best endeavours to facilitate the achievement of this object, it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine .."

Just because I can.

1 US Dollar equals

posted on Oct, 11 2015 @ 10:11 PM

"The phrase 'the establishment in Palestine of a National Home for the Jewish people' was intended and understood by all concerned to mean at the time of the Balfour Declaration that Palestine would ultimately become a 'Jewish Commonwealth' or a 'Jewish State', if only Jews came and settled there in sufficient numbers."[25]

That was also in the Balfour Declaration.

Exactly and here's a little more info to back up how pathetic Russia is. Read the facts. Russia steals Crimea from the Ukraine, a country who shares identical ethnicities and is incredibly weak and unstable. Wow. Impressive Russia. Attack and kill your own people. How heroic of you.

Ukraine=Russia's own failed attempt at a coup.

This puzzle is easy:

Russia helps Syria/Assad. Syria with the backing of the UN and Russia asserts it's rights to the illegally seized Golan Heights property from the 1967 '6 day war'. There is massive oil findings in Golan Heights which will be profitable for both Syria and Russia. This is bad for the US, Israel and Saudi Arabia.

Anything else is just window dressing; we are seeing the shut down of the greater Israel project.
