The Saudi Hit on The United States of America. That was Terrorism.
Federal agents have foiled a plot by Iranian officials seeking to recruit a Mexican drug cartel to kill Saudi Arabia’s ambassador to the U.S. in a bombing in a Washington restaurant, U.S. Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. said Tuesday.
I can't get too excited over this one. It seems that weekly, we hit someone somewhere with a drone missile, often with disastrous results to those unfortunate enough to be around the target or when we hit the wrong target. I am sure the intended targets are worthy of being killed, but you can't expect the government to be always wrong on some things and then always right on others. Both the US and Israel routinely kill enemies of the state where they find them, Pakistan, Italy, Yemen or Holland.
The proposed target in this case was a royal highness, a blessed prince and ambassador of one of the more detestable countries on the planet, Saudi Arabia. Hillary Clinton is very upset about the proposed attack by members of Iran's special-forces unit, the Quds, charged with orchestrating the plot. One of the duo, Manssor Arbabsiar, has been arrested and appeared in New York Federal court last night. Gholam Shakuri, is still at large.
The allegations will dramatically ratchet-up tension between the US and Tehran.
Now, let's put this in perspective. Eighteen of the nineteen 911 murderers were Saudis. The Saudi attack on the US killed three thousand Americans and caused one trillion in damage. For some reason we attacked Iraq, the sworn enemy of Iran and did nothing to Saudi Arabia. Nothing. As I said, I can't get too excited over this one. Neither should anyone else.
