Saudi Arabia can't win its war in Yemen, wants to put troops into Syria...if we do the same...

via Al Jazeera.
Saudi Arabia is holding talks with the United States about sending troops into Syria as part of a wider international coalition, the kingdom's foreign minister has said.

In his comments on Tuesday, Adel al-Jubeir said the deployment offer was "not new", adding that Riyadh had previously proposed the idea to former US President Barack Obama.

"We are in discussion with the US, and have been since the beginning of the Syrian crisis about sending forces into Syria," al-Jubeir told reporters in Riyadh during a press conference alongside Antonio Guterres, the UN chief.

"We made a proposal to the [previous] Obama administration that if the US were to send forces … then Saudi Arabia would consider along with other countries sending forces as part of this contingent."

Want to know why I have a visceral hatred of Saudi Arabia?  It's batshit STUPID stuff like this.

These people can't even win a war in Yemen and now they're begging the US to supply troops (in partnership with them) for a fight in Syria?

You have got to be shitting me!

The crazier thing?

I bet Bolton will be all over this idea.  Haley too.  I will never understand the thinking with regard to the war in Syria.  I'm trying so hard not to believe the conspiracy theories but nothing else makes sense.

They want this war and they want it bad.  Syria must have huge deposits of unobtanium buried beneath the soil or else people in power really don't value human life....or rather the lives of people they consider peasants.
