Saudi Arabia looking for U.S. to confront ISIS threat

Saudi Arabia does not engage and maintain relationships with the west as a friend but as a useful tool to protect their own self-interests.

Saudi king warns West will be jihadists’ next target

Jeddah (Saudi Arabia) (AFP) – King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia has warned that the West will be the next target of the jihadists sweeping through Syria and Iraq, unless there is “rapid” action.

“If we ignore them, I am sure they will reach Europe in a month and America in another month,” he said in remarks quoted on Saturday by Asharq al-Awsat daily and Saudi-backed Al-Arabiya television station.

“Terrorism knows no border and its danger could affect several countries outside the Middle East,” said the king who was speaking at a welcoming ceremony on Friday for new ambassadors, including a new envoy from Saudi ally the United States.

The Islamic State (IS) jihadist group has prompted widespread concern as it advances in both Syria and Iraq, killing hundreds of people, including in gruesome beheadings and mass executions.

Lack of action would be “unacceptable” in the face of the phenomenon, King Abdullah said.

“You see how they (jihadists) carry out beheadings and make children show the severed heads in the street,” he said, condemning the “cruelty” of such acts.

“It is no secret to you, what they have done and what they have yet to do. I ask you to transmit this message to your leaders: ‘Fight terrorism with force, reason and (necessary) speed’.”

President Barack Obama has yet to decide whether the United States should launch raids against positions held by the Islamic State jihadist group in Syria to follow US air strikes on IS activities in Iraq.

COMMENT/ANALYSIS:  King Abdullah’s warning should be heeded, but the message serves another purpose.  He wants to sway the west (read: the United States) to take military action against ISIS/IS (Islamic State) on behalf of his country.   Saudi Arabia does not engage and maintain relationships with the west as a friend but as a useful tool to protect their own self-interests.  As noted in this report,  ISIS/IS poses a very serious threat to the Saudi monarchy.  The irony being that elements within the Kingdom have been directly responsible for supporting jihadist groups – many that have joined ISIS/IS.   The Saudi’s and other oil rich Middle East nations need to get off their collective arses and use all the military hardware we have supplied over the years to engage the jihadi threat they are facing.

    Reblogged this on Liberalism is Trust Fucked with Prudence. Conservatism is Distrust Tainted with Fear and commented:
    To save House of Saud. Saudi Arabia ain’t looking for US to ditch Islam confront ISIS threat. They commended every clergyman to issue infidelity jurisprudence against ISIS.
    Who’s more honorable Obama or a boy who blew up himself to get-rid of Ten BLACKWATER Mercenaries who hired to kill sleeping elders, women and children off the society?
    Obama must be impeached right away, his batteries are expired, and he’s dishonest Honigga nutjob. Joe Biden can do better Potus than Obama at least he’s funnier than this jackass who’s fucking himself in the oval office.
    Obama lied to Chuck Todd. ISIS ain’t on the run. Airstrike ain’t working. He ain’t airstrike approval from Iraq. He ain’t any strategy. He’s dealing with Assad in Syria as SISI in Egypt kill Sunni. He’s arming warlords using EO illegally. He’s afraid from ISIS. They ain’t American citizens to save in Baghdad & Erbil US Embassies. He’s bluffing American fools to distract ‘em away from his Immigration, Economy, Ukraine and Midterm elections fuckups. Watch out guys! Obama is a psycho maniac he will use EO to nuke the whole world to kill Sunni. Ain’t for love of Israel as Jews dickheads thought but to stay in power.
