[ Editor’s Note: The Saudis got undercut on their silly ploy to tag Iran as the instigator of the Iraq protests and riots, posing that it was part of Iran’s “destabilizing” the region.
The Iraqi apology for not having done more to anticipate and protect the Najaf Iranian consulate was a strong indication that Iraq was not blaming Iran for anything.
The Saudi Egyptian ambassador’s fraudulent claims against Iran took the Saudis’ diplomatic reputation lower, if such a thing were possible. Accepting responsibility for its goofs is something that is not in the Saudi Royals’ DNA, and especially this current Crown Prince.
The Iraqi prime minister agreed to step down when the top Iraqi Shia cleric complained that weeks have gone by with not enough done, a naive complaint to think that any fixing can be done quickly in Iraq by shuffling some government leadership positions around.
I think the PM wisely chose to take his head off the chopping list, as whoever takes over will be the new target number one for the growing mob wanting a quick fix for their complaints. They are going to learn the hard way… Jim W. Dean ]
