2-On #Saudi : No question that Riyadh/Damascus rapprochement is difficult to foresee. Note that this shift is being led #UAE and not Saudi. Riyadh is expected to follow and yes, reluctantly. Damascus is just as easy about this given Saudi’s early support of the Opp. BUT ==>
3-When discussing Riyadh/Damascus, it’s critical to think about Qatari/Saudi schism. If forced to choose, who should Damascus side with? Answer: #Saudi . Why? #Qatar is ardent supporter of the Moslem Brotherhood (enemy of both Damascus & Riyadh). Doha is also still supporting Opp
#SYRIA#UAE#SAUDI ARE ON CUSP OF FORMING A NEW REGIONAL ALLIANCE TO DEFEAT THE IDEOLOGY AND EXPANSION OF THE MOSLEM BROTHERHOOD LONG CHAMPIONED AND SUPPORTED BY #QATAR#TURKEY
EXPECT REOPENING OF UAE EMBASSY IN DAMASCUS TO KICK START THE NEW REGIONAL SHIFT
2-This important shift comes on the back of intense and comprehensive meetings that took place recently in Abu Dhabi. The common objective of the parties is to stabilize #Syria and ensure the return of the secular state that existed prior to 2011.
3-There is no doubt that this new shift will create a challenge for Damascus when it comes to its relations with its long ally #Iran. At the same time, this shift will also be a perfect opportunity for Damascus to prove its independence when it comes to Foreign Policy
“The #UAE strongly supports the US approach to addressing global concerns about #Iran’s behavior. “
“The #UAE will continue to work closely with the US, regional allies, and other responsible nations to apply all the tools of diplomacy and statecraft to hold #Iran accountable for its destabilizing activities in the Middle East and beyond.”

Gates wasn't interested in Psy Group b/c other Trump aides oversaw social media. George Nader & Joel Zamel (Psy Group owner) met w/Don Jr & offered to help *THROW THE ELECTION* at an Aug'16 meeting arranged by Erik Prince‼️
George Birnbaum (Arthur Finkelstein protégé/@GOP consultant who worked for Netanyahu & other Israeli officials) initially pitched Gates on using social media influence/manipulation to sway @GOP delegates toward Trump.🤨 3/
1/ The #Saudi kidnapping of #Khashoggi reminds me of the kidnapping of #Hariri. It is meant to embarrass the other party, this time the gov of #Turkey, and provoke a diplomatic crisis. This is drug Cartel methods. It has no other goal than to assert power over the other.
2/ However, resorting to these methods to assert power in the political and international affairs sphere is always a sign of weakness and a sign of a power in crisis. #SaudiArabia

Private sector establishments shall be able to get their bank gurantees refunded in the following two cases: 1- when a work permit is cancelled. 2- when they renew a work payment given that they buy an insurance policy instead.
You might also remember that the day before Prince arrived at the Four Seasons, on January11, 2017, that the #UAE was offering 5000 men to fight in Afghanistan via bagman George Nader in an email to money hustler Elliott Broidy to impress President Trump. dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5…
Erik Prince was fingered by the NYTimes as the man behind UAE mercenary company Reflex Response. R2 allegedly hired Olly North sidekick, Robert W. Owen, of Jupiter Fl to provide Colombian mercenaries via BVI-based, Thor Global Enterprises. #1585788.
Excellent write-up by J. Flores at FRN on Russia going along with western narrative over the IL-20 jet downed on Monday.
That French frigate Auvergne shot down the plane is a long shot, but #NATO wanting to sever #Russia–#France ties is nothing new. fort-russ.com/2018/09/full-a…
Summing up the facts that led to, and followed, the downing of a Russian IL-20 plane.
A key pillar of KSA’s foreign policy is peacemaking; promoting development; and maintaining security.#KSA, with support from the #UAE, achieved the Jeddah Peace Agreement between Ethiopia & Eritrea, which ended 20 years of war and will bring stability, security to a vital region.
KSA has always been at the forefront of reconciliation efforts and promoting peace. While others exploit conflicts to sow division, #KSA mediates, with successful outcomes going back decades, including; Palestine, Lebanon, Afghanistan, among others.
The security of Bab al-Mandab Strait and the Horn of Africa is vital for KSA, the region and the world. Around 15% of the world’s trade passes through this area and KSA will keep working towards safeguarding the region from instability whether it‘s from piracy or Iran's militias.
The amount of crap and baseless claims that #AssociatedPress#AP is filling in into the mainstream media is unbelievable, especially regarding #Yemen !
#UAE’s heroic #counterterrorism operations in #Yemen against #AlQaeda are well spoken and praised by the #US Forces; but our friends at #AP are so happy to debunk those live operations and efforts easily !
US Forces and defense sec. didn’t call us the #LittleSparta for no reason; we fought like warriors in the face of #Iran’s terror, presented sacrifices of our men, saved poor #Yemeni children, and rebuilt the south of #Yemen ! #AP needs to learn ...
@AP#pt: Just like #HTS in #Syria, #AQAP in #Yemen is not a wholly contiguous organization of committed global jihadis - it's strengthened itself by embracing local drivers & structures.
=> That provides opportunities for counter-actors, but they require [some] engagement to do so.
@AP#pts: Another parallel to #Syria is seen in how the extent of localism embraced by #AQAP may in fact have weakened its long-term durability; by leaving large swathes of fighters vulnerable to cooptation by adversaries/rivals.
