With American support, Saudi Arabia is taking the lead in trying to form a Muslim security force to help Iraq overcome its 15-month-old insurgency, U.S. and Saudi officials said Wednesday.
The difficult thing to see here is why the USA considers this a good idea. It’s well known that Saudi security has been heavily penetrated by the Caliphascists (if that’s even the right word and the directors aren’t Caliphascists themselves). If such a force is deployed in Iraq, how plausible is it that it will not be heavily infiltrated as well? I would think that such a deployment would be a windfall for the Iraqi insurgents. I suppose we have to pretend it’s a good idea to placate the Saudi Entity until it’s time to take them down, but I hope we’re not dumb enough to trust them with anything important.
