AIPAC is very much a factor, but don't discount the Sauds. They have more wealth and seem to lobby more.


Yeah, the GOP has a read hard on right now for war with Iran.

That's why the US and the Saudis kept building oil supplies despite there being an overabundance. They're preparing for war with Iran in 2017.

Wildly inaccurate.


no, that's not wildly inaccurate at all.

Indiscriminate aerial bombardment is equivalent to an artillery bombardment, it has to be followed up with troop movement to be effective.
