Taking the “Saud” out of Arabia

The final stage of the PNAC-like plan to destroy the Middle East is in full swing.
How do I know? It’s painstakingly laid out in what appears to be a piece carefully planted in “alternative media” to give us the impression that some independent source can reliably explain and predict (in detail) what’s happening in the gulf states and Arabia. Of course, I smell a rat, but more on my hunch in a minute…
Here’s a brief excerpt from the piece hailing from a website that dubs itself “GEOPOLITICS MADE SUPER: Making foreign affairs sexy like marital affairs” … [red flag #1]
“[T]he following is not an alarmist article.  The public has no idea how strong IS is or is not in the Persian Gulf.  Hell, even regional governments may not know.
But that doesn’t undercut a key geopolitical truth: to secure itself permanently, the Islamic State must wage war on the Gulf states.  With the suicide attack in Kuwait, that war has begun.”
Of course the unnamed author of this “piece” ought to know because more likely than not, they’re aligned with the people planning it – a good reason to omit your name [red flag #2].
How do I know? It reads like a step by step blueprint for sewing chaos in the gulf states (not to mention how they did it in Iraq, Libya and Syria] and three quarters of the way through cites Pamelagellar.comwithout alerting readers to the fact that she’s a paid islamophobe and disinformation freak. [red flag #3]
They go on to describe exactly how it will play out, replete with medieval maps and charts that they could have only gotten from ISIS [red flag#4]:

As IS strategy goes, beyond merely surviving Iraqi, Kurdish, Syrian, Iranian, and Allied attacks, the next inevitable step must be an assault on the Persian Gulf.  Key to victory will be destroying Saudi Arabia.

Of course, we shouldn’t forget how outgunned IS currently is, which is why they won’t try to invade Saudi Arabia directly.

The Saudi army and air force would obliterate a direct assault; they’d also enjoy American air cover.  Whatever IS has left in terms of tanks and artillery is difficult to measure, but the U.S. air campaign has certainly made it harder to mobilize those assets, let alone group them together in big enough numbers to win battles.

Even if that weren’t the case, from a conventional standpoint, IS has no clear and stable supply lines or communications to maintain a proper invasion.  Anbar province is not secure without controlling Baghdad, and it would be from Anbar an invasion would have to come.

But that’s not really the IS style, either; it’s not a developed enough state to fight anything but warlords and broken armies.  Instead, IS must do what it tried in Iraq during the American occupation, accelerated in Syria at the beginning of the civil war, and perfected last summer.

And that means making Saudi Arabia as despondent, confused, angry, and murderous as Syria and Iraq.

Bottomline: Not at all surprised to see an article like this circulating… This is precisely what I predicted last year (in broad terms) and in fact have known for several years now, since the 2002 Slate article revealing RAND’s PNAC-like plan to take the “Saud” out of Arabia …
The final stage is now in full swing, Saudi Arabia is in the cross-hairs and, according to the RAND presentation’s slides, Egypt is likely next.


  1. Hi there –

    I appreciate the link! Anyway, I’m the author of this piece; I’d like to clear a few things up.

    All of the information I got was from public sources, including the Islamic State expansion map. (I didn’t realize my particular source there was an Islamophobe, but an Arabic version of that map has appeared in Dabiq, Islamic State’s own published online magazine, and quite frankly I’d rather not link to them). Much like Mein Kemph, Islamic State doesn’t make any secret of its grand world design as illustrated by that map.

    As for my anonymity, a few clicks on the site and you’d have found out everything there is to know about me. I’m a freelancer writer in New York City with extensive experience in the Persian Gulf; my education emphasized modern Middle Eastern politics and history. (Just to help out, here’s my Contently page that describes much of my work: https://ryanbohl.contently.com/).

    I’m definitely not deliberately planting misinformation in an attempt to stir up war or carry out someone’s grand design; I’m trying to analyze publicly known events and provide a geopolitical lens in order to bridge misunderstandings about foreign affairs. Recently, a suicide bombing in Kuwait shocked the Persian Gulf, and to many it seemed like slaughter for slaughter’s sake. That is not the case; it’s a geopolitically understandable strategy for Islamic State expansion. Outgunned, IS must fight asymmetrically against its key enemies. al-Qaeda in Iraq successfully divided up Iraq to the point where its successor, IS, now rules half the country. They will now try to do the same to the Persian Gulf.

    Once more, I’m not working for anyone but myself. This information is all public; my slant is towards an amoral geopolitical description of the world.

    Even before the rise of IS, Saudi Arabia’s government was in deep trouble, and its allies don’t have the power to save the monarchy. Only hard reform within the kingdom can save the House of Saud, but given my experiences working within the Emirati government, it seems deeply unlikely they’re ready to do any of that.

    Please do respond! I very much create this work to create understanding and not to sow misinformation or conspiracy.

      • Well I’m certainly glad you gave the pingback then! If you’re in NYC, do reach out after Ramadan! I’m always open to new conversations and coffee!
