    Should the Iranians ask the Saudis for diplomatic meetings to smooth things over, ending the bombings in Northern Yemen, since the backers of Saudi Arabia are not being very supportive.

    Let the severe punishment to Washington be overtures to Iran and the end of the Yemeni Civil War.

    What a strange development!!! Suddenly, all ropes are in the hand of the Reis!!! Anyway, I do believe that the Turkish government will do whatever is in the best interest of her and the region!!! I have trust in the Elders of the Turkish State!! And, the KSA elders should take the reign away from the young hot headed blokes...

    Wonder how deep Ergodan is in the saga of Kashugly? It appears that everywhere, there is spilled blood, Ergodan is just behind.

    This is how Allah-u Azimushshan is showing to the Muslim world who their fulcrums are!!! It’s evident from who can save themselves diplomatically and militarily...

    I am curious as to how much longer will the young crown prince be able to get away with these seemingly radical moves. Be it arresting of princes and thus antagonising the royal family, or the mobes for religious reforms which will likely antagonise the religious establishment or all the many seeming miscalculations on the foreign policy front which seem to have hurt the Saudi influence and interests outside.

    I am not certain about the economic side of his reforms as yet but as far as I've seen even when radical reforms, both internal and external, are a seeming success, there is still the status quo that dislikes change, especially radical change.

    So I wonder whether MbS would be able to manage the pushback that comes from so many different fronts, both internal and external, that he has simultaneously opened.

    Last year Saudis were suprised because of the Iraqi Turkish cooperation against the kurds also when American Congress signed a law to sue Saudis they were licking turkeys shoes but after trump came and the crisis of Qatar Saudis hated turkey alll of the sudden now when trump is threating them they start to kiss erdogan shoes again

    S.Arabia doesnt need blood sucker and unreliable the US ........ I remind You OBAMA supported Iran against S.Arabia and TRUMP is milking S.Arabia and Turkey can help S.Arabia




    Turkey has enough power to protect S.Arabia against Iran ,,,
    Iran never can touch S.Arabia or Qatar under Turkish protection
    Turkey never will allow a sectarian war in the region

    and Iran also needs Turkey against the US and Israel ,,,, and over 1/3 of population of Iran is TURK

    I would hope this would lead to better cooperation between Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Iran. Turkey would seem willing, how are the Saudis and Iranians, it is up to them to settle things.

    saudis need to improve relations with iran if they want to succeed against u.s sanctions otherwise they will be killed by u.s like qadafi and they are in no position to respond to u.s

    Curious to know, how KSA is going to hit back at the US? It ain't a fiction to envision Saudis switching camps from West to East, but taking that plunge requires a significant extent of audacity and the house of Saud doesn't seem to be up to it. Also a fact that USA despite it's politically aligned rhetoric will never let it get to the point where it will lose it's milking cow to Russia and China. In truth it's all a facade till the storm passes by, US wont compromise it's relation with the kingdom over one journalist, in a similar way, it's least perturbed by a ruthless dictator in Egypt.

    Turkey+S.Arabia+Pakistan+Iran+Azerbaijan+Egypt+Qatar+Uae+Kuwait,Iraq and others = what a great power

    Muslims dont need anyone
    Muslims have everything ( huge population,,,,trillions dollars of oil,gas,gold,boron,uranium,thorium reserves ,,, nuclear weapon ,,, control strategic straits such as bosphorus, hormuz , malacca and Suez )

    but stupid muslims are so weak because of Muslims are fighting each others and traitor puppet leaders



    problem is Iran .......and the US,Israel wants to start a sectarian war in the region between Iran and S.Arabia
    ( as like they did it before .. Iran-Iraq war )
    OBAMA gave Arabian lands ( Iraq,Syria,Lebanon and Yemen ) to Iran
    and with American support Iran is threatening S.Arabia and Bahreyn

    only Turkey can stop Iran ,,, Turkey+Azerbaijan+S.Arabia can take half of Iran ( there are over 30 million Turks in Iran and Turkey+S.Arabia have so superior military capability )

    Iran should know its own place and should stop destabilize the region
    and S.Arabia should stop licking anglo-saxon butt

    When will you take your (Persian) territories from Greece and Cyprus?

    https://defence.pk/pdf/threads/turkey-staking-claims-on-cyprus-territory-sending-in-warships.581641

    If a war breaks out between these countries and u and even by west support millions of you will run to Europe to have some modest life.

    Just like WW2 that millions of you migrated to Germany to rebuild it.
