Full title is: Saudi Arabia Showing Signs Of Support For Kurdish Fighters, Shows Possible Rift With Turkey Over Qatar
I would have never guessed this might happen; but it actually makes sense in a mid-eastern sort of way... So far just a healthy rumor however if more than the usual rumor mill then the battle lines really are being drawn. S.A. would not stand a chance against Turkey IMO but ????????????? Israel, Egypt, and others in a new coalition just might have Turkey and it's allies thinking twice... No need to think about USA involvement with Turkey if we are throwing in our lot with S.A. and the Kurds..

Only days after the falling out between Saudi Arabia and Qatar that resulted in a virtual blockade of Qatar by Gulf countries and Egypt, overtures are apparently being made between Saudi Arabia and Kurdish political and military units. While many may not understand the connection between the two events, rest assured there is a direct cause and effect between the Qatari row and the newfound interest in Kurds by Saudi Arabia.

Shortly after the Qatari isolation, Turkey announced that not only was it not taking part in the isolation, but that it was moving troops to a base in Qatar. Turkey did not take part in the movement against Qatar likely because of Qatari support for the Muslim Brotherhood, a powerful force in Turkey to which Erdogan is close to, to say the least. Thus, with both Turkey and Qatar engaged in supporting the Brotherhood and terrorists in Syria, it was logical that the two would retain ties.

Saudi Arabia, however, having long worried about Muslim Brotherhood activity in KSA (and for other reasons) and the country leading the charge against Qatar is thus now sending overtures toward Kurdish forces in all four countries – Iran, Iraq, Syria, and Turkey. These overtures, some analysts suspect, may very well turn into direct financial payments at some point in the future.

Although it appears that direct payments or official support has yet to take place, Saudi social media is alight with pro-Kurdish sentiment and hashtags like #saudiwithkurdistan. This is notable because, in Saudi Arabia, social media is heavily restricted, almost to the point of being state run and users are always in danger of being brutally punished for even the most routine statements.

The fact that the Kurdish fighting units are the enemy of Turkey and that Saudi Arabia might be open to supporting them signals that Turkey is going to be punished by KSA for its support of Qatar and the Muslim Brotherhood. The United States has also offered greater support to Kurdish fighters, particularly in Syria, and Kurdish Iraqis have finally set a date on their “Referendum” on independence set to take place in September, 2017. Both the Turkish and Iraqi governments have condemned the latter moves but the United States has remained silent.

Thus, we see the Saudis potentially aligning themselves with the Kurds – the enemy of Turkey but the friends of the United States – so much so that some Kurds have even spoken positively about the potential new Saudi position. As Ara News reports,

The Syrian Kurds are ready to work with Saudi Arabia, a senior Kurdish official said in response to the tensions between Saudi Arabia and Qatar, which is backed by Turkey.

“Saudi Arabia is an important power in the region and it must play its role in promoting stability in Syria. We are ready to cooperate with Saudi,” said top Kurdish politician Ilham Ahmed, who is currently on a visit to Washington to discuss the ongoing Raqqa operation.

The statement comes after Turkey threw its support behind Qatar, as other Arab states imposed an embargo on Qatar. The Turkish parliament approved a motion to deploy troops in Qatar and provide food and water supplies that have been cut off from Qatar by Saudi Arabia.

So with the apparent Saudi shift to the Kurds, we are likely to see a further distancing of Turkey from the United States toward Russia, although any Russian strategist worth his salt would likely be greatly hesitant towards trusting Turkish diplomacy.

One other effect this may have is pushing Saudi Arabia and Israel closer together since both countries already support terrorists in Syria, Iraq, and Iran. With both supporting Kurdish fighters, the Yinon/Brzezinski/Federalization plan will come closer to being realized and thus push the two countries together, an ongoing effort by President Trump.

“If Turkey continues to move further towards Russia and finds itself as part of similar alliances as Iran,” writes Adam Garrie of The Duran, “Turkey’s journey from willing western aggressor to tentative eastern partner could be complete. That being said, there is still a great distrust for Turkey not only in the Arab world but also in Iran. Privately, many in Russia remain anti-Turkish although under Vladimir Putin the Russian government has been able to draw Turkey closer into an economic partnership that benefits Turkey immensely. This is all the more reason for Turkey not to upset this new alignment.”

“If both Saudi and the US are now pro-Kurdish, it could see the main conflict in Syria become one fought between a Syrian Arab Republic on the verge of winning the war against Salafist terrorists and pro-Kurdish actors including the US, Israel and now possibly also Saudi,” adds Garrie.

Some analysts believe we are now witnessing a case of the United States losing control of its allies, a loss that will ultimately benefit Russia. Others, however, may interpret the recent events as a strategic calculation regarding the worth of one ally over another given the fact that the Western plan of destruction and destabilization of Syria seems to be falling apart and is calling for greater measures. Whichever perspective is correct, we can only watch as time passes to gain a clearer grasp of the machinations working hard behind the curtain.

Can't let the opportunity of a good proxy war go to waste.
Oceania was at war with Eurasia; therefore Oceania had always been at war with Eurasia.

From Oman, the ships will head to the Gulf of Aden and international waters north of the Indian Ocean.

Further indications have emerged that a blockade declared by several Persian Gulf states against Qatar has already opened a food corridor between Tehran and Doha since last week. Iranian officials say the country is already sending at least 100 tonnes of food supplies to Qatar by plane every day.

Shahrokh Noushabadi, Iran Air's spokesman, was quoted by the domestic media as saying that at least five planeloads of fruits and vegetables had already been sent to Qatar.

Doha thanks Moscow for offering food supplies following diplomatic row with other Arab states, however, the help is not needed so far, Qatari Foreign Minister Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani said Sunday.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has recently approved the Turkish Parliament's decision to deploy Turkish soldiers to Qatar and vowed to keep supporting Doha in its regional conflict; Turkish political analysts commented to Sputnik on how this could complicate Turkey's relationship with the US and who could benefit from this crisis.

I don't know, Saudi Arabia and it's new (youngish) king ain't ready for a proxy war against Turkey, not with what's circling outside their camp. Eurodragon is stable in Turkey, it will take a lot and I mean more than a crack down on the Muslim Brotherhood to dislodge the hold he's got on that country.

Saudi Arabia already has a conflict to the south and that has drained the coffers combined with low crude, enough that the "natives were restless" . Combined with moves they had to make because they where burning money, the last thing hey want is to get sum of dat Eurodragon.

I don't call him Eurodragon for nothin...

I think everyone should pull out of the Middle East and let the natives keep their Stargate.
