Saudi prince told when war might break out with Iran

38
Interview with an American newspaper The Wall Street Journal gave the crown prince of Saudi Arabia Mohammed bin Salman al Saud. One of the interview topics related to the confrontation of Riyadh (and not only) and Tehran. According to the Saudi prince, the “international community” must rally to tighten the anti-Iranian sanctions policy, which, according to bin Salman al Saud, today is “still not effective enough”.


From the statement of Prince al Saud:
We need to do everything to avoid military confrontation, but I do not rule out the possibility that the war between Saudi Arabia and Iran may begin in the medium term - over the next 10-15 years. War breaks out if our measures to prevent a military conflict do not prove to be effective as a result.


Saudi prince told when war might break out with Iran


Thus, the Saudi prince makes it clear that it is worth expecting anti-Iranian provocations of such magnitude that Iran itself will begin military actions against the same Saudi Arabia. One of these provocations is already taking place. This is the invasion of Saudi Arabia in Yemen.

According to the Saudi prince, it is impossible to be indifferent to look at how from Yemen’s territory “Iran is attacking Saudi Arabia” with ballistic missiles. We are talking about a recent rocket attack, which also exposed obvious problems with the Patriot air defense systems.
Two missiles of one of these American systems failed to launch. One of them struck literally a hundred meters from the launch site, which led to the death of people.

Recall that the partner of Saudi Arabia in the so-called "anti-Iranian coalition" is, for example, Israel. Riyadh offers him cooperation, calling this cooperation "measures to overcome the conflict with Palestine."

    They don’t cope with the Saldafons, and they can’t cope with Yemen, but they all went the same way, they showed on the news what kind of fighters they were.

      Well, yes, I would have put the Persians in this war too. Another thing is that the Anglo-Saxons will undoubtedly help the Arabs.

        Allies are determined by the natural needs of states, and today this is the main opposition to US imperialism. First, agree with Iran on the creation of Russian military bases in the Persian Gulf (Iskander, Onyx, Caliber, S-400) directly with the main US bases in KSA and Qatar. Let Turkey deal completely with the Kurdish threat fueled by the United States. The alliance of Turkey, Iran and the Russian Federation in stabilization and peace in the Middle East is determined, and strive for ....

      In principle, the SA did everything right, ISIS was thrown by its ISIS mercenaries into Syria and Iraq, and the Americans themselves invaded the Kurds in Syria, and the Turks got green rabble. All this except the destruction and capture of countries, their wells and transport corridors, of course, was directed against Iran, because without control of its wells, it is not possible to maintain the World Order. But the easy walk in Yemen failed, and a Russian bear climbed into Syria, destroyed ISIS, and allowed Iraq to do so. The SA is now in full ... that even Qatar wanted to be privatized, but the Turks failed. By the way, Turkey is not only a frenzied member of NATO, but has also become an enemy of the SA and is looking at Israel viciously. Iran's prospects are not bad, moreover, Shiites in Yemen, Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, not only hold the front, but have launched an offensive. The offended Qatar got out of Saudi influence and keeps silent, it’s not up to Iran, they wanted to gobble up their own. We see a complete failure of the backstage plans in BV, Maduro also survived, although no one believed in him, but Chavez believed. All this says that the petrodollar is not tied to gold since DeGoll's time, but tied to black gold, loses its status as such. Conditionally, oil production in the SA is compensated by the Russian Federation, oil production in the USA is compensated by Iraq and Iran, oil production in Canada is compensated by the wells of China. Venezuela and Brazil offset Kuwait and UAE mining. Moreover, the hostile bloc is cheerfully increasing production, and the Anglo-Saxo-Arabians are losing momentum. The shale revolution (agony) did not succeed and the trend continued. And the prospect ... there is already figured not oil, but oil reserves. And the first is Venezuela, then the SA (which is an overestimated manipulation), then Canada and the fourth Iran. Fifth Iraq, then Kuwait and the UAE, and the Russian Federation put in 8th place in terms of proven reserves, but we know that the vast territory and the giant shelf secretly make us the first. The next Libya and closes the top ten US (which is also overpriced for more explored bowels do not exist). Therefore, it becomes clear that the World Order needs Iran, Iraq, Libya and, of course, Venezuela in order to maintain "controlling stakes" in the main global product of civilization. Iraq has survived, everything is ambiguous in Libya, Iran is advancing more quickly, and Maduro is not bad. There was also a trump card and the West argument - the military power of the West, and specifically for the control of wells and tracks - the carrier fleet and carriers of the Kyrgyz Republic the sea-coast of Tomahawk. Also, this system includes a thousand bases at the right points. Therefore, the United States and NATO, having thrown off the threat of the USSR, so hypertrophied their armed forces in their current form, but the Russian Federation ruined everything with their devices and the PRC climbed into the sea.

        I agree with many, but not with some.
        Several times already wrote that according to some reports, the oil reserves in Qatar, the UAE and Saudi Arabia are STRONGLY overpriced and after their depletion, the region will experience huge upheavals. That is, there will be global Yemen, where disgruntled residents will dump dynasties. The United States is likely to leave, but before leaving, they are trying to rob the remnants and clean up military potential, which requires war. There have been enough revolutions in Syria and Libya to completely destroy the military potential, it does not work with Iran: it means that an external clash is needed between Iran and the Saudi coalition (while they are still in force), Iran - Turkey or someone else.
        By the way, the same strategy is going on with Russia, until the idea of ​​an internal enemy works, ideologically and materially and technically pumping the external ones ....

          So that's right. Just no one did not expect that Russia will reconcile Iran with Turkey, feeding her Kurds and part of Idlib. ISIS ceased to exist, as a serious unit, and in Yemen, the coalition got stuck and sank, what kind of Iran is there. Even the Israelis decided to make friends with the Iranian threat, they can be understood by the SA and Co. as a huge Shiite population, hostile to the regime and, as luck would have it, lives in oil production sites and terminals. Iran is still on the platter, as Lebanon receives a prize for supporting Syria. And if chaos engulfs Arabia, then the fall of Order will happen instantly. Xi also crowned the throne of the Celestial Empire and kissed Eun as revenge for a trade war, which in China will lead to famine unambiguously. China with Mao and Den was built into the Order and was consumer goods of the West, built the economy in this vein and ejecting it from this system, of course it is a disaster for China that they even had to elect a king. Here, of course, the Chinese are forced to throw themselves into the arms of the Russian Federation, they could not complete the rearmament, the carrier fleet takes their first steps, they have problems with the nuclear submarines. There are also problems with the nuclear arsenal destroyed in Sichuan. The flank with Eun is a necessary measure for China, its country and army will have to be supported, and it is commensurate with the Chinese. Now it is not up to this that the US nuclear submarines roam a couple of minutes of flight time to Beijing. The Russian Federation is extremely beneficial for the Eastern Front to the enemy, we need to finish the Ukrainian problem in the near future, piracy has already begun there, as an answer to the breakdown of gas contracts. There is no need to get excited, the Darkest has a plan and the issue will be resolved very soon, there the revolution has already begun to devour its children, it is not long.

            It is unlikely that Iran will be allowed to host in Lebanon. Israel will lay bones, but will not allow it. Iran is now in no condition to start a mess. Here, our interests in Syria may suffer. And Europe will stand on its hind legs. I’m silent about the USA (in any case, Israel will not be abandoned)

    In the war against Iran, the Saudis themselves will be defeated quickly, despite a bunch of expensive weapons. Therefore, there will be a "coalition" from the United States and a bunch of mongrels on the side of the Saudis!

        Here, Iran is not the instigator. All this fuss is being conceived against Iran, therefore, the "concerns of Iran" can in no way affect the outbreak of war. Trump during a visit to the SA agreed with the Saudis to supply arms to the SA for 300 billion dollars + Israel also decided to supply its weapons to the SA. If we take into account the fact that the USA has recently been fighting with the wrong hands, it is clear who they are preparing to use as a battering ram against Iran.

    And yes, by the way, how will the other Arabs react if some Muslims attack other Muslims (Shiites, but still) in alliance with the eternal enemies - the Jews? The prophet in his tomb will probably roll over ...

      Shiites, Sunnis hate even more than Israelis. The conflict with the Jews is tied to the land, property, so to speak. With Shiites, the conflict is ideological and religious. Sunni sheikhs have repeatedly stated that the mullahs are much worse than Israel.

      Sunites allow any temporary alliances - even with Jews and Christians for the sake of carving Shiites. That is - the main enemy for any Sunni is Shiite. For Shiite - sunni. They are there now in the 1490 years - that's about the same thing happened in Europe at that time on the basis of the currents of Christianity. This is normal.

      As for Yemen, they could not roll away - they will not roll Iran. Mistake.
      1) They drove Yemen at the level of destroyed infrastructure (and so actively that they killed all the poultry farms - natural hunger began not only among the Husits, but also in the Southerners, even the United Nations and the United States threatened with a finger), destroyed everything that could fly and swim.
      2) They lose the guerrilla warfare.
      3) They have difficulties in military combat - because of the terrain, the fighting skills of the Hussites and the Salekh army, and also because the local southerners play the main role on their part.

      The war with Iran will be primarily technological. I.e:
      - battles for supremacy in the sky. Where Iran has a chance - 0% with Phantoms, and 70's Tomkets.
      - attacks on strategic points (oil terminals, nuclear reactor, air bases, sea, missile plants, etc.). The Saudis did an excellent job of all this in Yemen - they even went too far.
      - tanker war 2.0. But there is a great chance that the United States and other countries of the developed world will begin a retaliatory operation to ensure shipping, along the way, gouging the entire coastal infrastructure of Iran, just in case.
      - blockade and economic impact.

      The only point is the Shiite belt from Tehran to Beirut - which the Persians were able to break through. That is, the beginning of the war with Iran will cause enormous fermentation in Iraq, especially all the Shiite war heroes, the current government is a little pro-Iranian, and the opposition is completely pro-Iranian. Comrades will also drive up from Syria / Lebanon. Plus, the ground forces of Iran will have an exclusive passage through Iraq. Here in the land - here it is not clear to whom the military fortune will smile.

        the current government (in Iraq) is Shiite, but the opposition is Sunni.
        In the event of war, the entire Sunni north (these are the places where ISIS originated) will clearly stand up for Saudi Arabia.

        The number does not play a general role, Saudi Arabia and Iran have no common border, so the war will be technological, and Iran has no chance of blindness.
        Do not forget that the whole Islamic Sunni world will follow Saudi Arabia - and this is 90% of Muslims.
        Maybe, of course, not everyone will rush to war, but here the policy of large numbers says in general (the United States should not be discounted, and Israel will not be left out of this holiday) -
        in general, how many wolves do not feed, but the elephant is thicker.

      Or the United States will simply withdraw from the nuclear agreement, and this will lead to a repetition of sanctions and Iran understands this, only against the backdrop of US threats to withdraw from the nuclear agreement, the Iranian real lost over 20% in a few days
