The hijackers in the September 11 attacks were 19 men affiliated with al-Qaeda. Fifteen of the 19 were citizens of Saudi Arabia, and the others were from the United Arab Emirates (2), Egypt, and Lebanon.[1] The hijackers were organized into four teams, each led by a pilot-trained hijacker with three or four "muscle hijackers," who were trained to help subdue the pilots, passengers, and crew.

Well, but the Saudis recently bought weapons for 110 billions, who cares about 9/11 ?

hate to disrupt you anti-Trump parade, but these issues have been festering behind the scenes long before Trump was elected, or even ran for president...

The last time Iran fell out with a neighbour it lasted 8 years and cost 1,500,000 lives
Then Saudi shouldn't do the same mistake as Irak did and attack Iran

Oh My God. I must be a bad man. Actually, im in 2 threads Asking if it's coincidence that this happened immediately after Trump visited the region.

But as you showed up late for 2 World Wars, I suppose it's only fair that you start the next one.

Hiroshima was down to a different US President.

Anyway, 3 days before this kicked off I posted this link https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Qata...ates_relations explaining how it's been simmering for years.

This is really a case of Arab nations calling the kettle black. Accusing each other exactly of the same things they have done themselves.

In these of fake news it is important to point out that the Islamic Republic of Iran has never attacked any of its neighbours. The conflict you refer to was started by Saddam Hussein.

I feel very uncomfortable with this development and can only see further escalation and deterioration of the situation.
Let's think it through. In no particular order. If Quatar (sorry spelling) is essentially grounded then there go EK EY Iranian overflight clearance.
How does that alone play out well for anybody?
Escalation of Iran / Saudi proxy wars on all fronts, Obviously the Big Dog (DT) has waved the stick but I doubt the protagonists are going to go down without a fight,
Tourism into the UAE!! Yea right
Real Estate investment in the region!! Same as above
International funds for infrastructure development !!! As if.
Relocate all movable assets now. Attend to licence issues.
Be prepared.
