Saudi Arabia Is A Key Link In Fighting ISIS

ArmchairPolitiicianSaudiArabia, April 22, 2017, by Brad Peery, ArmchairPolitician.US
Saudi Arabia’s Ambassador to the U.S. recently outlined their policies and the strong ties they share with the U.S. The U.S. strike in Syria, resulting from a sarin chemical weapons attack by the Assad regime, has struck a resonant cord with our Middle Eastern allies, including Saudi Arabia. Iran and Hezbollah, along with Russia, are supporting the Assad government. Together they are responsible for over 400,000 deaths, and half of Syria’s population of 22 million is displaced. Saudi Arabia does not believe that Assad can be a part of a peaceful solution in Syria. The solution could be in conjunction with the 2012 Geneva I declaration. Such a solution might result in three regions being formed. Turkey and the Kurds are in different areas of the north. Baghdad is in the middle on the west coast, and Jordan is on the border in the South.

Saudi Arabia is sandwiched between Yemen and Iraq. In Yemen, Saudi Arabia, with U.S. backing, is fighting the Houthis. Like Hezbollah, the Houthis are an Iranian surrogate. It is clear that Iran, the Houthis, and Hezbollah are our enemies in the Middle East. Iran provides a sanctuary for the leaders of al Qaeda. A peaceful solution is possible under the U.N. Security Council Resolution 2216.
ISIS and al Qaeda are also our enemies, not only in the Middle East, but also in Africa. In the near future, ISIS may lose control of the cities it has dominated in Iraq and Syria, and lose its caliphate potential. This could result in al Qaeda and ISIS working together, despite their differences.
Saudi Arabia is the leader of a 41 Sunni-majority Middle Eastern country group that some have called the “Muslim NATO”. A mission of it is to fight ISIS, as well as to meet threats to member countries, including confronting militia groups in Libya and Boko Haram in West Africa. Their first meeting is scheduled in Saudi Arabia in the next few months, and they expect to be militarily operational by the end of 2017.
Pakistan is a partner of Saudi Arabia, and has sent 5,000 troops to guard their southern border with Yemen.
ArmchairPolitician Opinion: We are in an undeclared war with Iran, Hezbollah, and the Houthis in the Middle East and Africa. Saudi Arabia is perhaps our most important partner, but Turkey, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, Jordan and Egypt are also important partners in that war. We are trying to get Russia to abandon its support for Assad in Syria. While this may be a long shot, it could lead to a Syria peace solution without Assad being in the picture.
