It seems that Saudi Arabia is trying to push the US into a war with Iran. The Arab News which is a state aligned newspaper published an editorial calling for surgical airstrikes on Iran.
A state-aligned Saudi newspaper is calling for “surgical” U.S. strikes in retaliation against alleged threats from Iran.
The Arab News published an editorial in English on Thursday, arguing that after incidents this week against Saudi energy targets, the next logical step “should be surgical strikes.”
The editorial says U.S. airstrikes in Syria, when the government there was suspected of using chemical weapons against civilians, “set a precedent.”
It added that it’s “clear that (U.S.) sanctions are not sending the right message” and that “they must be hit hard,” in reference to Iran, without elaborating on what specific targets should be struck.
The newspaper’s publisher is the Saudi Research and Marketing Group, a company that had long been chaired by various sons of King Salman until 2014 and is regarded as reflecting official position.
No one is shocked that Saudi Arabia wants the US to go to war with Iran but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t take note of it. The Trump Administration has garnered a great relationship with Saudi Arabia and they certainly have more influence now then they did under Obama.
