Members of the Gulf Cooperation Council met in UAE to discuss security issues surrounding their nations, and to possibly forge a Gulf Union to counter growing threats.

In fear of a growing Iranian threat King Abdullah Bin Abdul Aziz of Saudi Arabia told fellow Gulf leaders who are meeting in Riyadh to establish a Gulf Union, to take on " the challenges that threaten our nations, security and stability."

Dubai: In a surprise move, King Abdullah Bin Abdul Aziz of Saudi Arabia told fellow Gulf leaders who are meeting in Riyadh to establish a Gulf Union to take on "the challenges that threaten our nations, security and stability."

"I ask you today to move from a stage of cooperation to a stage of union in a single entity," Abdullah said at the opening session of a Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) summit yesterday. He warned the bloc's security was being targeted, without elaborating.

It won't be long before we'll see a future war between Saudi Arabia and Iran over this 'Gulf Union'

They should have learned their lesson from the European Union's current state. Bet it goes well for maybe a decade then everyone will be at each others throats.

That's kind of comparing apples to oranges. The European Union is largely an economic union, where as this Gulf Union proposal suggests and integrated security union.

Yeah, it's more akin to NATO or SEATO than the EU.
