At the embarrassing rate of a failure on Saud behalf - - I'd give it less than a year before Houthis take over Saudi Arabia lol.

And Saudi keeps knee-capping themselves by FIRING-UP the opposing populace w/ their executions.

Hate to break it to ya - - but Saudi has already commenced an "oil war" on multiple countries, including the UNITED STATES.

Plus due to the meddling in the Middle East, United States & it's "allies" created THE refugee movement.

Sure, the WEST doesn't want their world to burn - - but the countries/people on the receiving end of their "foreign policy" want nothing more & have wised up to United State's act.

Saud kingdom won't make it past another 10 years. Collapse is imminent.

And obviously the US and Europe would not allow an Iranian invasion of SA or any of the Gulf States.


Well you can go lay your life down to go help those barabrian.

But there will be zero support from me


It is just common sense. Allowing an invasion of the Gulf States would drag the entire region into war as oil supplies stopped being shipped from anybody in the region. Global economic collapse, a likely nuclear exchange, massive refugee movements in the millions pouring into Europe and Africa, and the spreading of Shia vs Sunni fighting to dozens of nations outside the region, the collapse of dozens of governments and rogue armies who will be able to get their hands on pretty much any weapons system they want all blaming the West for failing to step in, and killing on scale not seen since the World Wars.

Nobody in the West is going to let World burn because you do not like the Saudis. Some people have to look at the big picture.



Lasts I checked minus the nukes that was all happening anyway.....And the Dammed Saudis are behind half of it!

Let Saudi Arabia burn........

Nobody? No offense but your in the minority here. Most people have wised up and are tired of the Saudis BS. Only you and a few others (likley those with buisness intrests in the region) seem to think there sorrys arses are worth saveing.


Watching my oil prices go back up to £1.3 is small price to pay to avoid haveing to defend a nation of Barabrian, terrorists and tyrants.


You seem to confuse what people on the internet would do with what nations states would do. As we have seen even Saudi Arabia's traditional rivals for leader of the Arabs states Egypt and Turkey are backing the Saudis. And as that happens Egypt is returning it ambassador to Israel who also has been supporting the Saudis against Iran. And today the Arab League will be having an emergency meeting to give the full backing of its 22 nations to the Kingdom as well. And what about Russia and China? Well they both want better ties and arms deal with the Saudis so they are going neutral

You see not only do the Saudi's have vital oil (China's biggest supplier), a huge arms market for the US, UK, France and hoping to get in Russia and China, they also are in a vital strategic position. They have positioned themselves as in invaluable to not only the nations in the region but, to the worlds great powers. The West will never allow China and/or Russia to move in and become the Saudi's main backers thus giving them sway across the entire region and a good chunk of the Worlds oil. Something both the Russians and the Chinese would jump at.

What people on the internet think is irrelevant. The big picture geo politically is what nations look at. And you can hope and pray support for the Saudis will suddenly vanish but, it will not. If the West pulled out, Russia and China would move in. The West will never allow that. If Iran got the upper hand that would a threat the Turks, Egyptians and Israelis and they will not let that happen. Iran can not even count on support from China (who needs Saudi oil and wants arms markets) or Russia (who also wants a piece of that arms market). The Saudis know how to play the global game and use their vital resources and position to secure their nation. Imagine they are backed by both Israel and the Palestinian Authority against Iran. Your fooling yourself if you do not think the Kingdom will have far more support than they will ever need.

Im sorry but I cannot EVER support Saudi Arabia. Its morally repugnant to me.

I really don’t care about Politian’s and oil company’s stock portfolios and Geo political bickering.
And I especially don’t care about Defence contractors arm deal.

I accept the UK will likely support SA like good little lackys if war broke out.

Doesn’t mean I would support the war in anyway.

I"m just surprised at the action, considering Saudi Arabia routinely does executions of people for political or religious power reasons.


Both Saudi Arabia and Iran have a rich history of killing off and repressing political and religious opposition. Both countries are equally as bad as each other.
