Our Friend and Ally reassures the Thug-In-Chief that the Gulf states won’t get uppity. An update on this story.
–˜Gulf states won’t be base for attack on Iran,– from Reuters, with thanks to Sr. Soph:
RIYADH – Gulf Arab countries will not be used as a launch pad for any military attack on Iran, a powerful Saudi royal was quoted as saying on Sunday.
Saudi Interior Minister Prince Nayef bin Abdul-Aziz said Iran had no interest in striking its oil-producing Arab neighbours if it comes under attack from the United States.
“I think the brothers in Iran are totally aware that … Iran will not be a source of harm for their neighbours and brothers … These countries (Arab neighbours) will not be a source of harm for Iran,” he said in remarks late on Saturday carried by state news agency SPA.
“Respect and consideration are mutual. I speak for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (relations) with Iran and for the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC),” he added, referring to Kuwait, Qatar, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates and Oman….
He also called on Tehran not to meddle in Iraqi affairs.
Sunni Saudi Arabia had accused Iran of backing Shia death squads killing Sunnis in Iraq, and of backing an opposition front led by Hezbollah in efforts to bring down the Sunni-backed government in Lebanon.
“Creed does not justify intervention in Iraqi affairs,” he said.
