The Debate – US threat against Iran


… by Jim W. Dean, VT Editor

Has the young Crown Prince gotten too much power too soon, or is he the transformational future king?

[ Editor’s Note: Whereas Saudi Arabia has gotten at least some heat for its bombing of Yemen’s civilian infrastructure, the US and British guilt for the civilian bombing mistakes has been ignored by Western media.

Prince Salman was whining the other day after the Saudi military shake up that with the SA’s being fourth in the world on military spending, it ranked in the “20 somethings” in military power effectiveness, which had to be addressed, hence the shake up.

Dear Prince Salman, military equipment does not make a military. Trained fighting people do, and that takes work, something abhorred in your country, as it has a taint of slavery tied to it, so everybody is on the make to collect for doing work they never do. 

This became public during your budget crunch, where we learned about all the Saudis that have pretend-a-jobs, making sure they showed up for work at least for an hour per day.

Your thinking it was cool to run your country on slave labor and foreign technocrats was a big mistake. You never developed normally as a country, as no one really wants to work there. So why should you be surprised that your military does not want to fight?

The Iranian army would go through the Saudi army like a hot knife through butter. But Iran would  probably not want to bother.

They view it as being chumps; that it is something that mercenaries should do while they pretend to be fighting to collect their paychecks. We know that your pilots actually hire stand-ins to fly their planes for them.

We know because American trainers have told us how they hire “stand ins” to take classes for them while they are enjoying the booze and the babes in Las Vegas, as their Pakistani pilot stand-ins take their classes for them.

A fake country has a fake army. And yes, the West has been happy to bury you under in arms that you have to hire out to be maintained. To change Saudi Arabia, you have to change its people, starting with the religious leaders that refuse to work. I wish you good luck with that Jim W. Dean ]

  1. Jim, you are dead right about Pakistani stand-ins. A distant cousin’s husband was an PAF officer. He, like many of his colleagues, was in supporting roles, such as controllers, for the Saudi Air Force. It is rumored that all that advanced Saudi aircraft can be deployed by Pakistani pilots, in the case of an all-out war with India. Which they could only do if Saudi Arabia (KSA) did not have Iran to consider. Hence the never-ending efforts by the successive governments in Pakistan to mediate between Iran & KSA. Nor can they do it with KSA engaged in Yemen against a truly hardy, spirited people.

  2. Thank you Jim and your debating partner for an excellent presentation of a most depressing subject with the international unindicted criminals U.S.and England with the cowards in Israel behind it all. The UN is a total disgrace and must be shut down. The U.S. is a disgrace and will hopefully be taught a rude lesson if they continue down the path of war and destruction. For most brainwashed Americans it is all “just another day at the plant” so far as these ignorant complacent fools are concerned. Every year more mathematicians, physicists and engineers will take jobs basically working on more weapons of mass destruction. What a shameful disgrace without using expletives.
