Leave to that vipers nest of inbred tyrants and exporters of mass murder, the descendants of Saud, to start a regional war.
Not content to sponsor psychopathic Islamic Sunni extremists all over the world, not content to push the Muslim Brotherhood and ISIS down the throats of humanity, they have decided to up the anti. Overthrowing Assad is going badly, threatening Russia to increase terrorism I'm Russia did not work, indicating that you and your mean midget mini me Qatar might invade Syria also didn't work, the oil wars aren't working out? Hillsmen in Yemen are kicking your Sunni arse? Well don't take all that as a sign, it's the new year, after all, time to boost the game.
Solution? Execute one of the leading Shia holymen, who dared criticize the "enlightened" "democracy loving" Saudi tyrants. Name el-Namr, along with 47 other vicious terrorists (read critics of Saudi rule) were executed on the new year. Funny that the all freedom loving West was silent....not that they are a bunch of deranged hypocrites or something.
And so the wave of Shia anger has exploded. The Saudi embassy in Teheran was torched, the one in Baghdad had two RPGs fired into it. Protests exploded even as far as Kashmir. In Baharan, the authorities, also Sunni tyrants over a Shia majority, opened fire into the crowds killing protestors....this is why the U.S. and EU loves these guys so much....they are rich and happy to murder people....and they are rich....did I mention rich?
Worrisome for the U.S. and it's Saudi owners, is that the Shia in Saudi are also up in arms....and they sit on most of the Saudi oil. I am sure the Saudis will show restraint and only execute a few hundred "terrorists".
So as we can see 2016 has wasted no time in turning out to be an exciting year.
