    From your article:

    ...which was exactly the observation I made: a pipeline doesn't need to go through Syria, they could easily build one through Iraq to get to Turkey.

    The other option they had was to build one to Egypt through Jordan--or through Jordan to Israel. The latter option might be a bit tougher geopolitically, but Israel has had a longstanding cordial relationship with the Saudi government, even if the Saudi population hates them.

    Well, Putin called Kerry a liar so what do you suspect he was referring to?

    What do you mean?

    You're correct , but , 2 issues Ivan has , Naval Base in Syria and this possible Pipe Line that's wanted through Syria. Military and Monetary concerns has Ivan's feathers ruffled.

    I get that...but none of those matter to Saudi Arabia/Qatar in this instance. Their geopolitical goal by building a pipeline to Turkey would be to strengthen their own regional position at the expense of weakening Iranian influence--but beyond that, it's smart business.

    Sure, it'll ruffle Russian feathers, but why would they care? Their alliances aren't with Russia.

    Isn't Saudi Arabia the same nation that fosters the radical form of Islam that Bin Ladin followed?

    Yes...the Saudis are an interesting bunch alright: their government tends to be quite pragmatic when dealing with foreign policy and economic investments, yet they want their people stuck in an ultra-conservative society. And when extremists develop in that environment, the Saudis actively crack down and fight them.

    I tend to think the Saudi royal family fears losing their power if they reform and introduce more democratic freedoms.

    Rev, If Saudi Arabia maintains the course that you described, then there's a good chance that more than gas will go through that pipeline. There could be Islamic revolution.

    How do you figure? The primary benefit to Saudi citizens will be increased wealth, but they've had that for awhile now and democracy hasn't followed.

    Very interesting. Not that I am a conspiracy theorist (except for Hussein in which I know I have already been right on him at a 90% + clip), I like reading what's out there.

    It's hilarious to hear the propaganda about the Syrian government using chemical weapons on civilians given that the Syrian army is kicking the terrorists arse up and down the country. The Muslim Brotherhood, a puppet of our government, probably gave the rebels the chemical weapons so we could blame the attack on Assad.
