Saudi Arabia: Assad cannot stay in power This post was originally published on this site. Guardian
Saudi Arabia (world's pre-eminent beheaders) has called on Bashar al-Assad to give up power or be removed by force. The threat was made on Tuesday by Saudi Arabia’s foreign minister, Adel Al-Jubeir.
“There is no future for Assad in Syria,” Jubeir told journalists at the UN general assembly. “There are two options for a settlement in Syria. One option is a political process where there would be a transitional council. The other option is a military option, which also would end with the removal of Bashar al-Assad from power. This could be a more lengthy process and a more destructive process but the choice is entirely that of Bashar al-Assad.” The foreign minister did not specify how Assad would be forcibly removed, but pointed out that Saudi Arabia is already backing “moderate rebels” in the civil war.

'In a slightly less imperfect world there'd be no future for the House of Saud utterly corrupt monarchy! Is Syria attacking the United States? What is the real reason the United States is involved in this ? What would the United States government do if another nation injected itself into US national government ? I am very confused by all this aggressive behavior on behalf of my government. We are funding fundamentalist Islamists. Why? At least Russia is a long standing ally of Syria, does it not make sense that they would assist Assad? This is all too confusing to me and makes no sense at all. Why do ISIS militants have so much US weaponry? Don't you think that these questions should be answered at least at a basic level? Are these reasonable questions?'
