The pro-regime Al-Watan daily accused the Saudi authorities on Monday of "plotting" against Syria, and also of turning Lebanon into a springboard for attacking the country.
The newspaper accused Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal of "sending arms to fighters and mercenaries they are financing in north Lebanon," where weekend clashes between pro- and anti-Damascus factions left 14 dead.
So I came back to see him a few weeks later, and by that time we were bombing in Afghanistan. I said, "Are we still going to war with Iraq?" And he said, "Oh, it's worse than that." He reached over on his desk. He picked up a piece of paper. And he said, "I just got this down from upstairs" -- meaning the Secretary of Defense's office -- "today." And he said, "This is a memo that describes how we're going to take out seven countries in five years, starting with Iraq, and then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and, finishing off, Iran." I said, "Is it classified?" He said, "Yes, sir." I said, "Well, don't show it to me." And I saw him a year or so ago, and I said, "You remember that?" He said, "Sir, I didn't show you that memo! I didn't show it to you!"
Either way, Syria is gonna be destroyed in one way or another.

Misleading thread title much? A newspaper, allied to the Assad regime, accuses the Saudis of plotting against the government. There is no evidence, and only the speculations of a journalist. You then make a leap of logic and state the 'reason' that Assad's regime is being targeted (in theory) by the Saudis.
I don't know the full story of what's going down in Syria, but your threads have a terrible bias in them, you seem blinkered to the idea that maybe Assad is corrupt, and is in some measure using violence against his citizens.
Your location is Canada, and all your threads feature online sources, with no allusions to any personal contacts within the region. So how can you be so sure of your perspective? Indeed, how can anyone be sure of the actualities of Syria's plight?
I don't doubt that TPTB/ the USA are quite happily stirring the pot of violence, in order that they can progress on with their plans for WW3, but I also have no doubt that the Syrian government is at least in part responsible for some pretty horrific actions against their citizens.
