December 16, 2013

From the Dec. 8 edition of the Independent by Patrick Cockburn:

World View: Everyone knows where al-Qa’ida gets its money, but while the violence is sectarian, the West does nothing

Donors in Saudi Arabia have notoriously played a pivotal role in creating and maintaining Sunni jihadist groups over the past 30 years. But, for all the supposed determination of the United States and its allies since 9/11 to fight “the war on terror”, they have showed astonishing restraint when it comes to pressuring Saudi Arabia and the Gulf monarchies to turn off the financial tap that keeps the jihadists in business…

Do read the rest, won’t you?  We owe it to ourselves to confront the harsh reality that our government has not only bet on the wrong horse, but continues to bet on the horse that does us the most direct harm.  Americans at home and troops abroad are at far greater risk from Saudi-sponsored terrorists and insurgents than terrorists backed by other nations…
