Highly doubtful. More likely, US officials are 100% behind what MbS is doing.

The destruction in the middle east is much bigger than Saudi Arabia, which is a very convenient frontman along with Israel, both of whom are taking part ownership of the situation on behalf of the Western powers who are at present driving largely from behind.



It seems pretty clear that we are wit ...

As much as the Iranian boogeyman is a cash cow, I'm afraid war with Iran, and the ensuing mess that could last decades, would be a much bigger revenue stream for the military industrial complex of not only the US but every player in the war.

Don't be fooled by the smoke and mirror theatrics. Of course they pretend to hate what America is doing. It's part of the script. The name of the game right now is plausible deniability. Yet, when the US finally moves against Iran, the allies will be there.



Taking it to the extreme, does anyone ...

If Eye-ran really didn't want to end up in direct military conflict with the US and allies, it's foreign policy would be quite different.



Alas, a reasonable person could not argue that Iran is taking all practicable measures to get itself off the path to war with America.



Leaving the hostile ...

The Democrats are as much a war party as the Republicans, as any very brief look at American war history will demonstrate. Actions are what matter, not fancy rhetoric.

"We along with Israel and the United States are going to war with Iran."

I doubt the Saudis will have to tell the other Arabs that they are either with or against the latest "coalition of the willing".

I doubt Lebanon will be razed to the ground a la Yemen, but taking out Hezbollah probably won't be a peaceful process. It could be done before, during or after an American war with Eye-ran, but I always assumed Hezbollah would be eliminated first.

When you're building the case for war with Eye-ran, anything goes. It need not be rooted in fact, it just has to be a marketable narrative that is superficially plausible to the masses.



This is no different to the linking of Saddam with Islamic terrorism. Oh, but Iran is different to Iraq, isn't ...

"The Trump administration is worse than oblivious to all this; it is stoking it."



The US is stoking the fire in the middle east? Yeah, but not because the Americans are stupid. Rather, that was the plan all along - to get to war with Iran, and make it look like it was Iran's fault, and to legitim ...

More propaganda denying agency to the United States, as though it is a helpless kitten dependent on others for everything. The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is a subservient client state of the Anglo-American Empire, and so is Israel. A complex web of propaganda and deceit has been woven, turning the real ...

Kerry set up the JCPOA as a step in the path to war with Iran. The deal was never about peace. He is one of the biggest liars in the game.

Does anyone actually believe Iran will be allowed to move in, stay put and take control of a new quasi empire spanning former ISIS territory and the territory of weaker friendly states?



This is insanity, and it's putting Iran at great risk. A neo Persian empire, Iranian sphere of influence - what ...

"This can go two ways: toward either war or a new understanding of the balance of Middle Eastern power."

I think we all know which of those two ways is more likely to play out.

Let's have a look at the opening sentence:

"Tensions between Saudi Arabia and Iran are running sky-high. So much so, that the threat of war between the two gulf powers seems as palpable now as ever before."



Ummm no. The war is not just between the two gulf powers. A more accurate way of describi ...

Incidents like this are bound to be blamed on Iran, whether true or not, and potentially used as an excuse for escalation of hostilities.

The only country heading for suicide at the moment is Iran. The US can fight, win and lose wars thousands of miles away with no possibility of committing national suicide at home. Iran, by continuing to oppose the Anglo-American-Zionist power centre, is putting itself at extreme risk of suicide.

Face it. People like you, the braindead communists of Iran, gave their lives to help the mullahs take over Iran. And you've spent the last 38 years complaining about it. If that's not the definition of insanity I don't know what is. That is why you are totally irrelevant in 2017.

No-one in recent Iranian history has been more idiotic than the Marxists, who actually thought they had a chance at succeeding in their revolution at the height of the Cold War. As if America was ever going to allow communists to take over Iran. What Iran got instead was a special form of Islamic co ...
