Assad Time Magazine and Israeli Saudi Rapproachment?


I was reading Time Magazine’s Man of the Year issues on the flight home.  They had Syrian President Bashar al-Assad as choice number four.  If it were not so horrific, it would be a bit like having Darth Vader.  (Luke, I am your father).

The article mentioned that Assad could easily surrender the chemical weapons as a bargaining chip, so President Obama wouldn’t blow up his Air Force.  Needs that more to bomb his people.  Also this way, President Obama had to tacitly recognize Assad as the legitimate ruler.

Both the Israelis and the Saudis also realize the US has become war weary, and does not need Middle Eastern oil as much

Now come the Saudis.  Thanks to Iran, Israel and Saudi Arabia share foreign policy interests.  Israel wants to be the Singapore of the Middle East.  The plot thickens.  What happens with the Palestinians though to make such an agreement work?  Stay tuned.

About tucsonmike

I am originally from Brooklyn, New York and now live in Tucson, Arizona. I have discovered a passion for writing. I have five books out now, with a sixth on the way. Take a look @ my book list: The Search for Livingstone An Affair of the Heart The Search for Otzi Griffith Justice in Space. Moriarty The Life and Times of a Criminal Genius Available now on Smashwords - Amazon and Barnes and Noble As to not bore my public with just "Buy my book," I am also interested in baseball, the outdoors, art, architecture, technology, the human mind and DNA. I learned Ashkenazi Jews, of which I am one, have to lowest rate of Alzheimer's in the world. Therefore, I treat my brain as a muscle needing a workout. I enjoy good food, flirtation, beautiful women (I am happily married for thirty years), so just flirting ;) I was considered autistic when I was young, trying to figure out if I have a mild form of Aspergers and learning from that. That is for future posts. You can also see I love history. Enjoy my sarcastic silly look at the world, and making History more interesting than a textbook.
