This Rather Strange Alliance

When a draft-dodging con man such as Bill Clinton begins to sound like General George Patton, most intelligent people realize that the fix is in.

Clinton recently remonstrated with Obama over the latter’s inaction in Syria. Like a true politician, Barack obliged and ordered small arms to be delivered to the rebels three days after the draft dodger had read him the riot act. Clinton is a sleazeball who has never done a thing except beat his own drum. His close friends are sleazy, his Hollywood buddies are shabby, and even his daughter’s father-in-law has done hard time for big-time fraud. Clinton lowered the bar as president and was extremely lucky to be followed in the White House by a man who although well-meaning will go down in history for having committed one of the greatest foreign-policy mistakes of any American president. Nevertheless, the prisoner of the neocons has had the decency to stay out of the fray and inside his Texas farm. Not our Bill. He wants to live in the White House again and is busy preparing his wife’s triumphal entry to it in three years. Hence his aggressive remarks about Syria.

“Look for the money. The Saudis and Qataris have a hell of a lot of it. Bill Clinton, a man who never let a scruple get in his way, is their perfect secret agent.”

But here’s the scoop: Look for the money. The Saudis and Qataris have a hell of a lot of it. Bill Clinton, a man who never let a scruple get in his way, is their perfect secret agent. Quietly and discreetly, they’ve decided he is the perfect man for them in DC. Nothing as obvious as hundreds of millions exchanging hands—there are laws against that—even where the Clintons are concerned, but becoming close friends of the draft dodger can be very beneficial in myriad ways: his charities, his connections with multinationals, and the multiple nefarious ways money can be channeled to the candidate running in the 2016 election.

The Saudi-Qatari plan is a simple one. Drive a Sunni corridor through the Middle East all the way to Iran, splitting Syria and empowering the Sunni minority in neighboring Iraq to revolt against the Shiite ruling majority.

The Salafist hardcore clergy that rules the street in Saudi Arabia and Qatar plays ball with the ruling families in the two countries as long as their long-term plan for Sharia law to rule the Middle East is on track. Secular leaders such as Assad, and Saddam before him, have been the stumbling blocks for this grand strategy. Once Assad is gone, and the Sunni revolt in Iraq manages to split that country also, they only need to deal with Iran. That is where Israel enters. Iran could take over the Gulf States and Saudi Arabia in a week, but Israel will never allow it. So we now have this rather strange alliance between the Sunnis, the Americans, and the know-nothing Europeans, with Israel as the tough guy protecting the oil-rich Arabs against the baddies, the Shiites.
