Iranian President takes aim at Saudi Arabia and Israel...

via PressTV
It is very reprehensible and shameful for a Muslim country in the region to beg the Zionist regime [of Israel] to bomb the people of Lebanon,” President Hassan Rouhani said at a government meeting on Wednesday.

“It is unprecedented in history for a Muslim country to take such measures, and this indicates the immaturity of the individuals, who have come to power in those countries,” Rouhani added.

Secretary General of the Lebanese resistance movement of Hezbollah, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, said on November 10 that Saudi Arabia had appealed to the Israeli regime to launch a military onslaught against Lebanon in the name of fighting Hezbollah, and was ready to spend billions of dollars to attain this objective.
  “Why has a country, which considers itself to be serving the two sanctuaries [of Mecca and Medina], has come to pressure the innocent and Muslim people of Yemen in such a way?”

Leading a number of its vassal states, Saudi Arabia has been conducting military strikes on Yemen since March 2015 to restore a former pro-Riyadh regime.

Wow.  This is wild.  The Israelis have been making noises and have indicated that military operations in Lebanon could happen pretty soon.  The idea that its being pushed by Saudi Arabia is....batshit crazy.

But everything we've seen in the fight against ISIS has been....batshit crazy!

Ok. How do we freaking track this?  ISIS was a proxy of the Sauds in the fight in Syria.  Hezbollah supported Syria.  The fight against ISIS is over in Syria (well practically over) so the Sauds have pivoted to the new battlefield of Lebanon.

And instead of getting themselves into a new Yemen-like quagmire they're hoping to get the Israelis to do it for them?
