Saudi Arabia vs. Iran

According to Debka, the Saudis have all but given up on the Obama Administration’s will to confront Iran and are preparing to do it themselves in the company of Gulf States. Meanwhile, The Hindu has more on this escalating confrontation.

Prince Turki bin Mohammad, Saudi Arabia’s Deputy Foreign Minister threatened to pull out his country’s diplomats from Iran unless Tehran improved their security cover. “I hope we won’t be obliged to withdraw our diplomatic mission from Tehran if Iran fails to take the necessary measures to protect it,” he said, after protesting students last Monday hurled flaming Molotov cocktails at the Embassy building.
