    Are regional powers in the Middle East attempting to control the outcome of the uprisings?

    As the Arab spring continues to blossom, a counter-revolution is taking hold of the region with Saudi Arabia at the helm. On Thursday's Riz Khan we ask: Will new-found freedoms across the Middle East affect Saudi Arabia's hold on the region?

    The House of Saud are the mos vulnerable.

    I believe they have requisitioned the Pakistan Army as Jordan had done during the Black September massacres of the Palestinians by Zia ul Haq, who was leading a Pakistan Brigade there.

    Looks like Pakistan is about to get another feather in its cap. It already is an exporter of terrorism, now it is going to export mercenaries, albeit 'official'.
