Chickens Coming Home to Roost on the Hajj

From the "unintended consequences of religious fundamentalism" file, comes the story of the Saudi royal family shitting a brick at the prospect of ISIS invading in order to seize the city of Mecca, to the extent that they are building a northern border wall.

The irony here is that there's no real difference between ISIS and the Saudis, right down to the beheadings. For the past fifty years, Saudi Arabia has funded fundamentalist Sunni Islam throughout the world, creating the doctrinal underpinnings of extremist groups like ISIS and Boko Haram. Just last year, the Sunni-dominated Gulf States were reluctant to address the ISIS threat, seeing the Shiites of Iran and their Iraqi puppets as a greater threat.

Well, now it looks like their poisonous ideology, a religion that brooks no compromise, no common ground with the infidels or heretics, will be coming back to bite them. I can't say I feel any sympathy for the fuckers. Hopefully, these two vipers will annihilate each other. Inshallah...

For all of our 'regime change' on behalf of alleged good causes, we've been and remain the most important supporter of the Saudis.

Follow the money...

I am terrified that our dear buddies of the House of Saud will take time off from gutting the American oil industry with low prices to CALL US to save them from the fucking ISIL fuckers.

That two of America's key allies are Pakistan and Saudi Arabia should be a source of overwhelming shame and disgust.

But you're so right. The reason that ISIS was able to roll up over 20,000 square miles of territorial gains across Iraq in a matter of weeks was that the people who lived there were either sympathetic or welcomed them because their previous leadership treated them so badly.

If there's one thing the Royal Family knows, it's that due to their national support for Wahhabi Islam, an invasion by a particularly hardcore group of Takfiri Wahhabis would find a great deal of local support among the Saudi populations.

And, along with you, to see the Royal Family die by the same vile ideology they have prospered under would be quite pleasant....
