Saudi Arabia severs diplomatic ties with US over response to conflict in Syria

Saudi Arabia's intelligence chief is vowing that the kingdom will make a 'major shift' in relations with the United States to protest perceived American inaction over Syria's civil war as well as recent U.S. overtures to Iran, a source close to Saudi policy said on Tuesday.

Prince Bandar bin Sultan told European diplomats that the United States had failed to act effectively against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, was growing closer to Tehran, and had failed to back Saudi support for Bahrain when it crushed an anti-government revolt in 2011, the source said.

If the Saudi's follow through on this threat, watch out Petrol $

The dollar would fall drastically should the Saudi's go to another exchange currency for their oil. The Saudi's would then be put on the hit list after Iran.

This is NOT true BUT

it is a serious issue. The Saudis have not broken diplomatic ties. No other foreign or US news service reported a severing of ties. It may happen but it did not happen.

Will be posting on the implications of the US Saudi relationship tomorrow.

I think they better reconsider their position imo lol

...or is this to drive up fuel prices ;)

This is one country I would support a vote in favor of Representatives voting for sanctions.


What diplomatic ties?

The only ties are to the SSG. And their only ties are oil and money! It's almost insulting that Saudi thinks ordinary Americans give a damn. This is nothing but another calculated chess move that heightens my suspicions of what their next move is.. And when I say THEY, I mean the SSG.

misleading title to article

How long will it be till

How long will it be till Putin follows through on his threat to bomb Saudi? Remember the reason why Saudi Arabia wants Assad out is because they can't put in that pipe line.

After 9/11, we should have bombed all the Saudi royals' palaces.

But that would require having an actual legit War on Terror.

Is that you

John McCain??
Tell me again how the Saudi regime wired 3 buildings in the World Trade Center....that wee fact has escaped my memory.

Of all the comments to this thread

You decide to reply to my comment only.

You would have noticed if you weren't mildly retarded, I didn't say anything about WTC demolition. If your understanding of 9/11 is simply "Controlled Demolition!" then you should probably just quit altogether.

Don't talk to me, I'll return the favor.

I replied to your thread because

of your outstanding understanding of the concept of liberty.
After all, after 9/11 we delivered liberty to Iraq and Afghanistan, then to Libya, and I just found it touching that you think we should deliver liberty to Saudi Arabia too.
Peace Gold and liberty to you.

Bull. Absolute bull.

An evil puppet created by imperial conquerors, the house of Saud would not last a year without a constant flow of favors and most importantly, weapons to remain in power.

Petrodollar diplomacy.

Jack@$$es on this site complain about Israel's influence in DC.

Saudi Arabia's influence is, quite literally, TRILLIONS of times greater than Israels.

Petrodollar diplomacy. They are suggesting they will do to us what we've been doing to them for over 40 years.

That's exactly right...

Saudi King says "We will have a Muslim in the White House in 2008."

Obama bows to Saudi King...

Michelle Obama visits Saudi national Boston-Bomber at hospital before he is swiftly snuck out of the country...

Obama calls for Israel to return to indefensible 1967 Borders...

Obama wants to start war with Syria, that Israel will take brunt of retaliation and international blame for, despite the majority of Israelis opposing a war with Syria...

Yeah, Barack Hussein Obama, the Muslim-Commie in Chief, is really pro-Israel, and isn't as influenced by Saudi Arabia as much... Sure...

Are you a POT or a PET - Person Embracing Tyranny?

I don't think so.

Please name another country which has a lobby group in Washington which gathering is attended by over three quarters of Congress members, as well as the President, VP and any high ranking Cabinet members in any way or another related to US foreign policy - Sec. of State and Sec. of Defense included. It's NOT Saudi Arabia.

Yeah, actually it is.


Yes, Oil talks where nation can only cry, beg and wheedle.


Free includes debt-free!

House of Saud has always been heavily involved in funding

Al-CIA-da/Wahabist brainwashing camps, aka. CIA/Mossad/Saudi-intel funded madrasas.
