Op-Ed: Obama's Next Arab Toppling Target: Saudi Arabia

On January 20, 1933, the democratically elected Adolf Hitler was installed as Chancellor of the Weimar Republic. It took Hitler two months, the Reichstag “Fire,” and the Enabling Act for Hitler to become the absolute dictator of Third Reich.
On June 30, 2012, the democratically elected Mohamed Morsi was installed as the President of Egypt. It also took Morsi two months, the Sinai attack, and no enabling act for Morsi to become the absolute dictator of Egypt.
President Obama has now completed the toppling of the key US ally Mubarakand Egypt’s entire benign power structure, and has empowered the Muslim Brotherhood to turn Egypt into the “neither enemy, nor ally” Sunni Islamo-Nazi version of Iran.
Also, without the US Congress’ approval, Obama, as the new “Executive Order” US Dictator, is attempting to unconstitutionally finance the nascent Islamo-Nazi Morsi Regime with a billion dollar bonus from the USAID Agency slush fund.
But, Egypt’s topple is just the opening act in Obama’s vision of his Middle East. Now, Obama has trained his sights on toppling the last and only remaining real Arab pillar of American Middle East support: Saudi Arabia.
Well, if we think back to Obama's now infamous 2002 Iraq War speech, the then-Illinois State Senator Obama clearly stated who the now-US President Obama believed were the real enemies of the United States that needed to be destroyed. In 2002, three years before Obama was even a US Senator Obama told the world what Obama really thought of Mubarak of Egypt, and the Kings of Saudi Arabia:
"You want a fight, President Bush? Let's fight to make sure our so-called allies in the Middle East, the Saudis and the Egyptians, stop oppressing their own people, and suppressing dissent, and tolerating corruption and inequality, and mismanaging their economies so that their youth grow up without education, without prospects, without hope, the ready recruits of terrorist cells."
But, one doesn't need to go so far as the history books to read about Obama's obsessive animus to the current "Custodian of the Two Holy Places." One need only read Obama's ultimate Middle East Policy speech at the State Department on May 19, 2011:
"The story of this revolution, and the ones that followed, should not have come as a surprise. The nations of the Middle East and North Africa won their independence long ago, but in too many places their people did not. In too many countries, power has been concentrated in the hands of a few. In too many countries, a citizen like that young vendor had nowhere to turn -– no honest judiciary to hear his case; no independent media to give him voice; no credible political party to represent his views; no free and fair election where he could choose his leader.
"Prosperity also requires tearing down walls that stand in the way of progress -– the corruption of elites who steal from their people; the red tape that stops an idea from becoming a business; the patronage that distributes wealth based on tribe or sect."
Or what Obama said at the September 2012 Democratic Convention:
"The historic change sweeping across the Arab World must be defined not by the iron fist of a dictator or the hate of extremists, but by the
hopes and aspirations of ordinary people who are reaching for the same rights that we celebrate here today." Sounds good, but for whom?
Or as recently as September 25, 2012 at Obama’s UN GA speech:
"Moreover, there will always be those that reject human progress – dictators who cling to power, corrupt interests that depend upon the status quo; and extremists who fan the flames of hate and division.
"The future must not belong to those corrupt few who steal a country's resources – it must be won by the students and entrepreneurs; workers and business owners who seek a broader prosperity for all people. Those are the men and women that America stands with; theirs is the vision we will support."
The "corruption of elites" of the Saudi princes of “the Arab World” must have been scratching their heads to guess where Obama’s “change” would “sweep” next.
With regard to toppling Saudi Arabia, the newly installed Muslim Brotherhood President of Egypt and Obama are on the exact same page and common cause. In President Morsi's New York Times interview, the NY Times reported Morsi as having stated:
"Successive American administrations essentially purchased with American taxpayer money the dislike, if not the hatred, of the peoples of the region,” , by backing dictatorial governments over popular opposition and supporting Israel over the Palestinians."
Now, now, isn't Saudi Arabia the quintessential remaining “Arab World” "dictatorial government" backed by the United States where “power has been concentrated in the hands of a few,” - “the future must not belong to those corrupt few who steal a country's resources,” - and where the “patronage distributes wealth based on tribe or sect”?
So Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood Islamo-Nazi Morsi and Obama exactly agree on the next step: “Prosperity also requires tearing down walls” of the kingdom of Saudi Arabia “that stand in the way of progress.” At least this is Obama’s vision of “progress.”
But let us look at Obama’s Middle East videotape at the trajectory of absolute chaos Obama’s programme of “Change” has brought to the Middle East, starting from the first moment he took office.
In three years, Obama has made Carter look like a Middle East “genius.” Instead of setting only one Carter-like-Iran into Islamo-Nazi flames, Obama has engineered about eight Carter-Iran- type Islamo-Nazi wild fires in the Arab Sunni world. Tunisia, Libya, Yemen,
Egypt, are in flames and others like Bahrain that are smoldering white hot ready to explode. (And we not even talking about Africa!) Obama’s Odyssey Dawn did not open a new dawn for Libya, but closed an old night-time of Islamist hate and darkness where “ordinary people” have even less to eat than before Obama’s “prosperity.”
Curiously, the only Middle East revolutions Obama has not helped and perfected are those of countries on the US State Sponsors of Terror list - like Syria and Iran.
So it seems, under the Obama Doctrine, if you are a state-sponsor of terror against the United States and are trying to build a nuclear bomb to annihilate Israel, Obama doesn’t want “ordinary people” to overthrow such “so-called” enemies. However, if you are a Sunni Arab US “so-called ally” not in touch with “ordinary people,” Obama wants to “tear down your walls” and wipe you out.
The Saudis are asking themselves, “With allies like Obama, who needs enemies?”
Make no mistake about it, in Obama's Pan-Muslim Middle East vision, Mubarak's and Egypt's demise equals one Arab "so-called ally" of the US down, and one more Arab "so-called ally" of the US left for Obama to topple. And, that one remaining targeted Arab "so-called ally" of the US is the kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
For while most people listen to Obama's refusal to draw any "red line" for Iran through an "Israeli prism," think how the Saudis see Obama's "No Iranian Nuke Red Line" policy: Outright catastrophic F-F-F-FEAR.
Israel is relatively far from Iran.
Iran is just across from the Persian Gulf from Saudi Arabia.
And, all of Saudi Arabia's oil is within 100 miles west of the of the Persian Gulf shore line. And, almost all of Saudi Arabia's “ordinary people” Shiites sit on top of these oil rich Saudi-territory Persian Gulf areas and don’t get oil “patronage” specifically “based on tribe or sect.”
While Obama refused to see Netanyahu at the UN, Obama also refused to see King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia. Instead, the Saudis sent a lowly Deputy Foreign Minister to say to the UN GA, in essence, that the “UN’s (i.e. Obama’s) inaction in Syria is a “Green Light” for Assad/Iran to massacre 30,000 Sunni Syrians.”
Now, Saudi Arabia sees a Muslim Brotherhood Egypt with control of the Suez Canal to its north with Israel as its only defense, an Iranian Republican Guard Shiite directed genocide of 30,000 Arab Sunnis to the North, and a soon-to-be- nuclear-armed Iran to its east.
The Saudi princes can’t be exactly feeling Obama's love and "ordinary people democracy."
To make things worse for the Saudis, Obama has totally frozen out any chance the United States would actively arm the Saudi-backed rebels in Syria. So, the Saudis saw Obama aggressively topple their key ally Mubarak of Egypt in a "Cairo minute" because Mubarak sent a couple of over-weight proxies armed with canes on top of camels into Tahrir Square.
But, the Shiite Assad genocidally massacres 30,000 Sunnis Arabs with fuel-air bombs, and Assad gets Obama's total, absolute "protectcia."
To boot, Obama has passively watched Iraq, Iran’s newest puppet, become a perfect air-bridge for hundreds of Iranian military supply planes to Syria loaded with thousands of Iranian Revolutionary Guards and thousands of tons of munitions to further genocidally murder more Syrian Sunni Muslims.
And Obama's stern reaction?? He has VP Biden call and "strongly protest" the transit of the Iranian planes to the Iraqi "President" Al Maliki.
What's worse, Obama struts like a peacock that "Four years ago, I promised to end the war in Iraq. We did." The key Obamanized word in Obama’s sentence is "end." The Saudis and the entire Middle East know that Obama loudly "ended" the Iraq War, but Iran with their murder of thousands of US soldiers with their IEDs quietly won the Iraq War and pocketed Iraq.
This only means the Obama unilaterally retreated under Iranian IEDs and fire, and that Obama single-handedly lost the Iraq War to Iran. Everybody, especially including Obama, knows that Al Maliki and Iraq are now total Iranian puppets, and that Iran now effectively sits on Saudi Arabia's land contiguous northern border.
But, true to form, Obama is dead set to repeat his same catastrophic “Iraqi ending” in Afghanistan, and concomitantly, Iran is ready to “win” the Afghanistan prize Game-Set-Match the same way it did in Iraq.
Obama’s “Grand Bargain” with Iran is “Just don’t make me look too bad when I retreat and you take-over the countries I’m giving you.” But to repeat a key element of this Obama “the Emperor has no clothes on” farce, while 30,000 Sunni Muslims have been genocidally murdered in Syria, and thousands of Iranian al Quds forces direct Assad's Shiite butchers, Obama and the new Islamo-Nazi Muslim Brotherhood Sunni Dictator of Egypt Morsi are, unsurprisingly, on the same exact page on Syria - which turns out to be exactly the opposite page of Saudi Arabia and Qatar.
In Morsi's UN speech, he said his government would continue pushing its plan to end the conflict in Syria in a manner that would give Syrians their choice of a new government "without the foreign military intervention that we all oppose." What “all” is President Morsi talking about? Saudi Arabia and Qatar have wanted US intervention in the form of the US arming the Syrian rebels months ago.
Add to this tragi-comic Obama “Foreign” Policy, thousands of Iranian Revolutionary Guards are the only “foreign intervention forces” in Syria and are, in effect, now sitting on Jordan's northern border.
So, can you imagine bricks the princes of Saudi Arabia lost when they heard Obama’s “sound and fury, signifying nothing” pronouncement that "We've reasserted our power across the Pacific."
The Saudi Princes know Obama’s “important” sounding pivot east was only a rhetorical fig leaf to explain Obama’s “impotent” pivot out of the Middle East, and his ceding the entire Middle East to the Islamo-Nazi regimes of Iran and Egypt.
In conclusion, 30 billion or 300 billion of “advanced” weapons to the Saudi's won't make a whit of difference for Saudi security. The bald inescapable fact is Obama has marked the Saudi Arabian Regime for absolute destruction either from Iran, the Muslim Brotherhood, or both.
To Obama, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is the one last Arab bulwark that stands in the way of erasure of any remnants of the Colonial/Winston Churchill's Middle East "borders."
For to Obama, those colonial "borders" (including Israel) have divided, crippled, and conquered the Muslim Ummah for long enough, and stand in the way of a United States of Arabia which can become a new modern nuclear-armed Muslim superpower which would hold 70% of the world’s oil reserves.
Hence, for Obama, the shortest distance and quickest plan to achieve a Pan-Muslim Caliphate spanning the entire Middle East is straight through the heart of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
Once Saudi Arabia is annihilated, Obama, during his second term, will focus on destroying what Obama believes is the worst "so-called ally" of the United States and Obama’s greatest impediment to his dream of Muslim Nuclear- armed Middle East Caliphate: Israel.
