The rift between the US and Saudi Arabia is long term. The George Bush plan is to transform the Middle East. Obama is using the Moslem Brotherhood to push forward this longterm agenda. Sunnis are vast majority of ME Moslems. Aloite are much smaller branch of the religion, Iran and elsewhere.
Excellent piece on 911, and Saudi involvement, so-called.
In Syria the Moslem Brotherhood is the chosen agency to bring about regime change, as in Egypt. Saudi Arabia warned the US not to use the Moslem Brotherhood to topple Mubarak, and they warned the US not to topple Saddam Hussein. The Saudi royalty feel threatened by the Moslem Brotherhood. The ME went to Qatar. Syria refused to take the pipeline from Qatar, and said they will stay loyal to Russia. Assad became the new Adolf Hitler, as Saddam Hussein had been made.
Obama has painted himself into a corner over chemical weapon attacks in Syria being wrongly blamed on Assad. The weapons were supplied by the Saudis without proper training. Putin and Assad agreed to get chemical weapons out of Syria, saving Obama’s face from an imminent war. There are deep factions inside Washington trying to avoid further military adventures.
Regime change was forced inside Qatar. The Rockefellers are no longer in control of Saudi oil and power. Many other issues covered in this podcast. The entire Middle East is up for grabs. A military government in Egypt financed by the Saudis are seeking alliances with Russia and China, after the Moslem Brotherhood left the country in ruins when they left.
China is the world’s largest importer of oil. Late 2020s they will be 70% of the oil market. China has enormous geopolitical weight, but will be very vulnerable from the oil supply line. Chinese food culture is years ahead of the West. The Chinese don’t shoot from the hip, while Abe in Japan has been shooting from the hip trying to get China to make a mistake.
China is trying to build new markets in the Eurasian continent to move away from the USA. Russia and China combined with the Stans – the Eurasian landspace – is the basis of world power. Britain controlled the world island since 1904. Then the US. Now control of the world island is coming up for grabs, and securing energy pipelines across Eurasia is the key strategic element, for securing China’s energy needs.

The Rape of Ukraine: Phase Two Begins
21st Century Wire
A secretive neo-nazi military organization reported linked to NATO played a decisive role in targeted sniper attacks and violence that led to the collapse of the elected government.
But the West is not finished with destroying Ukraine. Now comes the IMF with severe conditionalities as prerequisite to any Western financial help.
After the famous leaked phone call of US Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland (photo, left) with the US Ambassador in Kiev, where she discussed the details of who she wanted in a new coalition government in Kiev, and where she rejected the EU solutions with her “Fuck the EU” comment, the EU went it alone. Germany’s Foreign Minister, Frank-Walter Steinmeier proposed that he and his French counterpart, Laurent Fabius, fly to Kiev and try to reach a resolution of the violence before escalation. Polish Foreign Minister, Radoslaw Sikorski was asked to join. The talks in Kiev included the EU delegation, Yanukovich, the three opposition leaders and a Russian representative. The USA was not invited.

This drama is far from over. The stakes involve the very future of Russia, the EU-Russian relations, and the global power of Washington, or at least that faction in Washington that sees further wars as the prime instrument of policy.
