Saudi Arabia to invite Syria's Assad to Arab leaders summit that Riyadh is hosting in May - Reuters.

Thaw..
It is pretty easy to cause fissures in these countries. They do not have diplomatic depth, nor maturity and certainly not the religious and cultural temperament for peace or resolving something with peace. There are plenty of ways in which the CIA could make this into a new war.

They should be able to keep those differences aside with Chinese and Russians in the picture.

Everybody is self serving in the geopolitical game.

Glad we aren't left far behind these days and are just as cold and calculating as the rest.

Most of the unrests/conflicts in Middle East are largely due to one particular country and the superpower supporting it.

Saudi Arabia the 'leader of Muslim world' opening its doors to Iran, Syria and Yemen is a very welcome step.

No doubt that ME countries were in conflict with each other for most of the time in modern history.

They already did by stoking the embers in Syria, this was two weeks ago :


They'll keep the cauldron stirring. The US has troops still in Syria, and wouldn't let go of its oil reserves there so easily. The rapprochement between Iran and KSA could turn things around, even more if Turkey irons out its creases in the region. To that extent the US will keep against the unification of Syria. But the Russia-China axis is on a better footing in this regard. While ideological cohesion/compatibility between the states concerned is questionable and its effects on any normalization might been seen in the time to come, if the axis could effectively remove any sort of US influence, it is a major win for the region.

As such, India would benefit more if the US can keep the war prolonged, as unethical as it might sound, because it would be in our national interest that China (emboldened by Russian backing) doesn't get a command over the region. Whatever 'string of pearls' they were visualizing as Chinese strategy with ports, would in reality become an iron cable noose, if regions as a whole capitulate ( Middle East to our West, Myanmar, Sri Lanka, Bangla to our East, China directly up North).

The West has a habit of patronizing one side against the other in glowing articles. China has had success for Iran and Saudi but is in quite a geopolitical cesspit at home. They have been rattling Taiwan while also trying to mess around with us - their tactic is to try and turn Russia completely on their side. Putin knows this and will avoid taking sides when it comes to CCP versus us.

I would take the Western analysis with a grain of salt. But yes, the longer this war drags on, the better it is for us. However, the West just cannot sustain the war any longer. They will cut their losses and leave Zelensky to his fate soon. They know Ukraine is lost.

How is Iran so deeply penetrated by Mossad? And Israel is not?
Mossad is one of the finest organisations. We know its aggressive nature like in Operation Bayonet but Mossad specializes in counter intelligence as well + they maintain close contact with CIA and have access to US and NATO satellite constellation comparatively Iranian secret service is a lot more underprivileged to say for the very least.
They were doing hunky dory during the reign of shah but now its all compromised Mossad has yet again proven its name and fame

To add to the problem I think they are more people willing to be Mossad assets in Iran than Iranian assets in Israel due to well patriotic and hyper-nationalistic nature of Isrealites

They are trying to jerk the Americans, A few years back no one could have thought that a sunni and an alawite (shi'a) establishment will shake hands. MBS seems to have his own view frustrated by Biden's insults and hostility he has turned to new partners like China recently they held talks with Iran etc.

I wonder how Americans will react in future, historically Americans have been the most ruthless in maintaining their influence but biden has perhaps forgotten that he is president of a country so everybody even BRICS nations are having a free run.

Turkey has gone apeshit after the recent bombings
Most likely fuelled by their NATO masters. Leveraging Turkey's anger and hunger to become a regional hegemon would be a child's play for the CIA spooks. Erdogan's desire to become the new ottoman sultan makes it even more easier.

The US shot it down because the drones carried out air strikes on oil fields (illegally captured) of the US in Syria. If any US soldier had died in this air raid, You'd have seen a much heavier response inside Turkey.
