Not just rumors of wars, but rumors of Saudi-Israeli cooperation in a war
More fantastic reports of Saudi cooperation with a possible Israeli attack on Iran:
Israel Air Force aircraft dropped off large quantities of military gear at a Saudi Arabian military base a week ago, in preparation for a potential attack on Iran, a number of Iranian and Israeli news outlets have reported.I agree with some of the scholarly experts quoted in the article:
“Everything is a bluff,” said Dr. Guy Bechor, head of the Middle East program at Herzliya’s Lauder School of Government, Diplomacy and Strategy.As someone who has been saying periodically for years that the only solution to the Iranian nuclear threat is a military attack on Iran by the U.S. or Israel, I have long since ceased crediting the reports we keep hearing that such an attack is contemplated or planned. I will only believe that such an attack is going to occur, when it actually has occurred. At this point, after so many years of hearing so much b.s.’ing on this issue, I do not expect it to occur. I expect that Iran will acquire nuclear weapons and delivery systems, and thereafter be in a position, at the least, to blackmail Europe into submitting to its will, and, at the worst, to destroy Israel, and that the world will have become an immeasurably darker place. I hope that I am wrong.
