saudi arabia very actively funded the radical islamic groups in syrian civil war with money and arms. However saudi arabia deSPERATE ACTIONS did not get them success in their ultimate goal of falling bashar-al-assad regime and installing a islamic govt or a moanrch under its influence. saudi arabia plan backfired and led to crisis in iraq. As of now isis have become self-sustainable with high incomes from oil revenues, looting mosul bank ,doing extortion and kidnappings. isis and its other associates are stuck in a region where they cannot gain further territory because *on west bashal-al-assad regime is strong(supported by russia and iran) *on south eastern iraq --- shia forces and kurdish forces are present with support from NATO. *turkey?? noooo because it is a powerful regional country and a stable democracy. the only country left is saudi arabia which is a islamic monarchy and has elements within which supports ISIS.it is a good breeding place for ISIS and could harness good local support which ISIS is famous for. history has shown again & again that monarchs fall pretty quickly and unpredectibly... so is saudi arabia next?? or it is too big to fail??
