Saudi State Newspaper Urges U.S. ‘Surgical Strikes’ to ‘Bomb Iran’

Unfortunately for SA the Arab News does not control US foreign policy. AIPAC does.

Fortunately for SA, AIPAC wants the US to fight their …this battle also.


“Surgical strikes” by U.S. forces against Iran are needed to curb the Islamic republic’s increasing regional belligerence, a state-affiliated Saudi newspaper has warned.

The Arab News argued the U.S. had “set a precedent” with strikes against Syria’s Bashar al Assad’s regime in 2017 following the horror of sarin gas strikes in Khan Sheikhoun.

Iran should now be targeted following its attacks against Saudi oil infrastructure – first bomb attacks on two Saudi tankers, followed by drone strikes on two pumping stations – the paper said in an English-language editorial. It outlined its argument thus:

Crown Prince Mohammed was clearly correct when he argued that appeasement does not work with the Iranian regime, just as it did not work with Hitler.

The next logical step — in this newspaper’s view — should be surgical strikes.

The US has set a precedent, and it had a telling effect: The Trump strikes on Syria when the Assad regime used Sarin gas against its people.

We argue this because it is clear that sanctions are not sending the right message.

The editorial continues by saying Iran must be hit and hit hard, and “they need to be shown that the circumstances are now different.”…

Be seeing you
