Saudi Arabia threatens America with Economic Warfare
posted by Christopher W. Holton
Saudi Arabia has long been a major incubator for global jihad, both violent and civilizational. It isn’t the only country that has promoted Islamic supremicism, but it is certainly the wealthiest.
The Saudis’ enormous wealth has enabled them to greatly influence the political process here in America and even enlist the aid of present and former U.S. elected and appointed officials in covering up their major role in waging various forms of warfare against the West.
They must be getting nervous because rarely have the resorted to outright overt activities. Their stock in trade has been to work behind the scenes and use their oil wealth to “lubricate” key cogs in the system. Now, however, they seem worried over the apparent release of proof of their treachery in supporting Al Qaeda and even being involved in the September 11th terrorist attacks. They are threatening the U.S. with outright economic warfare…
Saudi Arabia has told the Obama administration and members of Congress that it will sell off hundreds of billions of dollars’ worth of American assets held by the kingdom if Congress passes a bill that would allow the Saudi government to be held responsible in American courts for any role in the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.
Adel al-Jubeir, the Saudi foreign minister, delivered the kingdom’s message personally last month during a trip to Washington, telling lawmakers that Saudi Arabia would be forced to sell up to $750 billion in treasury securities and other assets in the United States before they could be in danger of being frozen by American courts.
This was inevitable. Saudi support–be it official or unofficial–for Jihadist organizations such as the Taliban, Al Qaeda, HAMAS, Lashkar e Taiba and others, has been the worst kept secret in security circles for nearly two decades.
And, evidently, the Saudis will do anything to prevent the truth from coming out and having to be held accountable for their actions.
