Turki also accused Iran of interfering in Iraq, Lebanon, Syria, and in the Gulf state of Bahrain, where Saudi troops were deployed this year as part of a Gulf Co-operation Council force following widespread protests from those calling for greater democratic rights.
Though there has previously been little public comment from Riyadh on developments in Syria, Turki told his audience at Molesworth that President Bashar al-Assad "will cling to power till the last Syrian is killed". He added, we will do the same thing of course but that is because we are protecting the world's oil supply for democracy.
...before most of MENA has some nukes in some small (or large) measure and one of them use one. Hopefully it never happens. Never is a very long time to hope that peace overwhelms MENA and no major wars are ever fought there.
The Iranian President "I'manutjob" is on record as saying he believes it's his destiny to facilitate the coming of the next Messiah/Caliphate(sic?) and annihilating/incinerating Israel is part of the that plan so I don't see much room for compromise over there. Plus they hate Saudi Arabia almost as much as Israel so that just add's to the mix. Iran believe's that Bahrain belongs to them and have been putting up with it for awhile. Something unfortunately has to give somewhere at some point.

Please answer 2 questions: what year is it now? do you think the supporters of the government of israel and saudi blowing smoke to sustain their diplomatic protection and cash supply from american taxpayers?
Israel will let Palestinians back to their 1947 property before """"the kindgom""""voluntarily gives up power or you see Iran launch an unprovoked military attack.
foreigners overthrew iran's chosen leader and introduced a scumbag dictator. then later coordinated an attack against the iranians once they got rid of this scumbag. why wouldn't they want to protect themselves from future assaults?
