The Saudi war against the world continues

Kerry-Saudi-Arabia

Some time before 9/11, Prince Bandar bin Sultan, (once the powerful Saudi ambassador in Washington and head of Saudi intelligence) said to head of the British Secret Intelligence Service, “The time is not far off in the Middle East, Richard, when it will be literally ‘God help the Shia’. More than a billion Sunnis have simply had enough of them.”

As we’ve seen since 9/11, the Saudis aren’t just at war with the Shia, they’re at war with everyone who doesn’t share Wahhabi values.

The Saudi war against the world continues:

At least 69 people have been killed in four bombing attacks on Shia areas of Baghdad as a wave of almost daily massacres by Isis continues.

An explosion in a market in the Iraqi capital’s al-Shaab district left 34 people dead and 75 injured, while a car bomb in the al-Rasheed area killed eight and wounded another 22 victims, according to police and medical sources.

In al-Shaab, a roadside bomb exploded outside concrete blast walls surrounding the open air market, before a female suicide bomber blew herself up in a crowd of people who gathered to help the initial victims.
