Saudi Army on full alert, Assad still in Syria

The Drums of War and Propaganda. Iraq 2.0.

While the army of the totalitarian dictatorship of Saudi Arabia is said to be on full alert now because of the increased level of the US-led threats of war against Syria and the alleged recent statements by the Russian President Vladimir Putin in terms of a possible military strike against Saudi Arabia by Moscow, the rumours about the visit of Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad to Iran are false, of course.

The Saudi Army is on full alert since today due to the increased possibility of a military attack by the U.S. military against Syria. The ground force operations command of the Saudi Army has ordered all the military units in Saudi Arabia to stand at a level 2 alert. At least, according to the news website of Al-Ahd (Arabic).

However, some rumours also said that Putin has made some recent statements in terms of the Saudi regime and a possible military strike against Saudi Arabia. The rumours say that the Russian President Vladimir Putin has ordered a massive military strike against Saudi Arabia in case the West launches its military attack on Damascus. However, such rumours are what they are – rumours till it is happening.

An excerpt of the article about the order by Putin for an immediate military strike on Saudi Arabia in case the West is launching its attack on Syria:

A grim “urgent action memorandum” issued today from the office of President Putin to the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation is ordering a “massive military strike” against Saudi Arabia in the event that the West attacks Syria.

According to Kremlin sources familiar with this extraordinary “war order,” Putin became “enraged” after his early August meeting with Saudi Prince Bandar bin Sultan who warned that if Russia did not accept the defeat of Syria, Saudi Arabia would unleash Chechen terrorists under their control to cause mass death and chaos during the Winter Olympics scheduled to be held 7-23 February 2014 in Sochi, Russia.

So, while the Saudi Army has also urged all its military units to send daily reports to the command headquarters, the Iranian administration has rejected the recent rumours about a trip by the Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to the Iranian capital, Tehran.

Today, the spokesperson of the Iranian Foreign Ministry, Seyed Abbas Araqchi (sometimes Seyyed Abbas Araqchi), rejected the recent reports by Israeli regime papers that the President of Syria (Bashar al-Assad) would have fled to the Iranian capital, Tehran.

The Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Seyed Abbas Araqchi rejected these false articles by Israeli media that have earlier claimed that the Syrian President has flown to Iran in a new interview from today. In this interview with Press TV, Seyyed Abbas Araqchi said that these reports by the Israeli media would be “ridiculous” and just plain wrong.

Some reports in Israel by the usual regime papers have claimed that the Syrian President Bashar al-Assad would have left Syria in direction to Iran yesterday night. However, President al-Assad has already said that he was born in Syria and that he will therefore also die in Syria.

Further, such rumours and this kind of propaganda about the Syrian President al-Assad are not new and DEBKAfile is certainly a lot but no credible source in the most cases.

    I’d think that President Assad is a patriot, and will remain in country. When China attacks the US, where will Obama go? He wouldn’t stay in the US, that’s for certain.

      true, from what I’ve read so far on the subject matter Assad seems as though he’s going to go down fighting if the US attacks, but honestly I think my country should stay out of the affairs of Syria due to the eruption of another war that involves Germany, Russia, and China as an opposition to us. Plus, putting my troops in harms way for something that is none of our business seems pointless. I can guarantee Obama will vacate the US, and go into hiding somewhere if the mainland is attacked. As for defense against China, we will put up a good one, as we always have.

    If China is stupid enough to attack a country that has the strongest military in the world, and manages to breach u.s. soil they will be painfully reminded that most of us own guns. The u.s. will never fall. I agree Obama is a coward, but America will beat China’s ass like a drum. Assad will do like the rest of those Muslim cowards and run and hide.

  3. Pitocco

    These rumors are rumors and they are from a website renowen for fakes news. There is not any evident proof about what this site ( have pubislhed.




      Does that mean that Saudi Arabia can behave so recklessly, supporting coups against democratically elected leaders, sponsor sectarian wars against neighbors, threaten Russia with terrorist attacks and participate in the death and destruction of fellow Muslim countries like Iraq and Libya promote and mobilize for an unjust war against Iran just because they are Muslims? By doing all this is Saudi Arabia advancing the cause of Islam? Instead of uniting Muslims, it is dividing them on sectarian grounds. It is working hand in glove with Arab/Muslim’s worst enemies: viz. Israel and America. Therefore in reality Saudi Arabia is among the worst enemies of Islam. Those calling for Jihad against Russia are Ignorant, puppets of the Saudi dictatorship, Which does not hesitate to use Muslims as mere tools of their foreign policy.

    @Nick why’d you take the bait? It’s silly to think China will “attack” the U.S. The U.S. is its biggest client/debtor.

    As far as Obama, check your compass. Guys that need to boast about their guns aren’t showing bravery.

    True courage is not the brutal force of vulgar heroes, but the firm resolve of virtue and reason.

    America playing a game of blood and fire with muslims and at the time muslims are devided, so they are in trouble everywhere but the time will com when America, israel and civilized western nations will burn in their own fire. There are delay in the system of GOD but never injustice.
    remember it civilized nations, remember it.

    What are you people discussing about? US and UK will strike and have to. Assad is a stupid leader nobody in Syria wants. Assad must go away. Only Assad is able to lead in Syria? What about children and women getting killed everyday? You dumb people talk about Russia and China like a kids fight. We all know that Russia and China are just bla bla bla and have no similar power comparing the US. With countries like middle east and Russia world can’t develop

    I’m sorry to see that there’s a lot too much of ‘My God can beat up your God’. Too much basderdash and piffle, very little objective content. Too bad. It used to be a good forum.

  10. Muhammad

    If Russia attack SaudiArabia… It could be finalday for russia… Because ”No Muslim will tolerate the attack on saudi” i think Russia is Russia is going to vanish…

    • Arklight

      More balderdash and piffle? Badass Bandar tried to muscle the Russians with threats of Chechen muslim attacks, and admissions that KSA has been running the Chechens all along. There are many, many men and women of good will in KSA who wish no one harm, but there are also wholly evil creatures of Satan in KSA, as there are in all countries, and those creatures deserve no mercy from God or man. Thoughtful commentary without trash talk is welcome, but free flowing hatred is not.
