    because of his choices Syria and Libya are now in civil war with huge numbers killed, wounded or displaced, and much of the money Pakistan funneled to the opposition to the Soviets came from Saudi Arabia... in the 1980s.

    He was not a friend to Russia, and nor was he a friend to the people in the region.

    Saudi Arabia Planning New Canal to Bypass Iran-Controlled Strait of Hormuz

    Report: Saudi Arabia Planning New Canal to Bypass Iran-Controlled Strait of Hormuz
    SEPTEMBER 10, 2015 7:56 AM

    More Here: http://www.algemeiner.com/2015/09/10/report-saudi-arabia-planning-new-canal-to-bypass-iran-controlled-strait-of-hormuz/#

    Saudi Arabia is planning to build a canal in Yemen to bypass the Strait of Hormuz, according to a report in Iran’s semi-official Fars News Agency on Wednesday.

    According to Sa’ad Ibn Omar, head of the Arab Studies Center in Riyadh, “Studies are underway on the construction of a waterway which starts from a part of Saudi Arabia’s water border in the Khour al-Adid area between the UAE and Qatar and stretches 950 km to the Arabian Sea.”

    that Saudi Arabia was planning to construct a water canal in Yemen, named Salman, to bypass the Strait of Hormuz.

    Omar said the purpose of the waterway, to be named the Salman Canal (after the king), is to enable the UAE and Kuwait to bypass the Iran-controlled Strait of Hormuz when exporting their oil to other countries.

    Omar added that the proposed canal, which is expected to cost $80 billion, would cut in half the current travel time it takes for ships to sail through the Strait of Hormuz.

    Now we know why they're attacking Yemen, but this canal is basically the Saudi's assuming victory over the Houthis as a sure thing, far from it in reality.

    It would take decades to build and the workforce would be a perfect target for guerilla warfare. Anyway I though most of the oil went East, not via Suez.

    Saudi Arabia breaks off ties with Iran after al-Nimr execution
    Source: BBC

    Saudi Arabia says it has broken off diplomatic ties with Iran, amid a row over the Saudi execution of a prominent Shia Muslim cleric.

    Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir was speaking after demonstrators had stormed the Saudi embassy in Tehran.

    Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr and 46 others were executed on Saturday. Saudi Arabia found them guilty of "terrorism".

    Mr Jubeir said that all Iranian diplomats must leave Saudi Arabia within 48 hours.

    Saudi Arabia is seriously f-ed and they don't know what to do. Seems like they try to drag United States to commitment in order to cover their own mistakes.
    I think their situation is so critical that, if they keep losing in all fronts, it may escalate even to a regime change.
    Unlike others, I don't think Turkey is in serious trouble, but SA definitely is.
