Stunning Win – Saudi King Salman Agrees to Support/Finance Safe Zones In Syria and Yemen…

This is a jaw-dropping exhibition of the scope of President Trump’s strategic leverage. Remember how Secretary of State Rex Tillerson refused to take the bait from Senator Marco Rubio regarding Saudi Arabia?  Put this outcome in the dividend column.

Those who have not followed the back-story of non-extremist politics in the middle-east will miss the obvious play identified more readily by those who have followed closely.

One of the major influences and advisers for King Salman of Saudi Arabia is Egyptian President Fattah Abdel el-Sisi.  El-Sisi has already established a productive relationship with President Trump both before and after the election.  No doubt King Salman and President Sisi debriefed the prior conversations between Trump and el-Sisi.

Today King Salman agrees to a primary expressed policy position of President Trump.  Saudi Arabia will support and finance “safe zones” within Syria and Yemen.  This is a big, big deal.

(Via Reuters) Saudi Arabia’s King Salman, in a phone call on Sunday with U.S. President Donald Trump, agreed to support safe zones in Syria and Yemen, a White House statement said.

Trump, during his presidential campaign last year, had called for Gulf states to pay for establishing safe zones to protect Syrian refugees.

A statement after the phone call said the two leaders agreed on the importance of strengthening joint efforts to fight the spread of Islamic State militants.

“The president requested and the King agreed to support safe zones in Syria and Yemen, as well as supporting other ideas to help the many refugees who are displaced by the ongoing conflicts,” the statement said.

[…]  A senior Saudi source told Reuters the two leaders spoke for over an hour by telephone and agreed to step up counter-terrorism and military cooperation and enhance economic cooperation. But the source had no word on whether the two leaders discussed Trump’s order to put a four-month hold on allowing refugees into the United States and temporarily ban travelers from Syria and six other Muslim-majority countries.

The source said Saudi Arabia would enhance its participation in the U.S.-led coalition fighting to oust Islamic State from its strongholds in Iraq and Syria.

The White House statement said the two leaders also agreed on the need to address “Iran’s destabilizing regional activities.” SPA also mentioned Trump and the King had similar visions on “confronting whomever seeks to destabilise security and stability in the region and interfere in the affairs of other countries,” an apparent reference to Riyadh’s arch-foe Iran.

Both countries share views about Iranian policies in the region, the Saudi source said, suggesting Trump agreed with Riyadh’s suspicion of what it sees as Tehran’s growing influence in the Arab world. Iran denies it meddles in Arab countries.  (read more)

In addition to el-Sisi there are modern entities within the Gulf States, specifically the UAE, who will understand and support a more strategic White House relationship.

Predictably, Qatar, the worst of the bunch, will be excluded if they don’t fall in line.  The Gulf States have grown more open in their admonishment of the actions under the table of those holding extremist views.  When Qatar expelled the five leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood, this was an early indication that Sisi’s moderate ideological influence was empowering push back.   The Gulf States rallied around Sisi’s call for expulsion.

A move by King Salman (Saudi Arabia) to support the safe zones in Syria and Yemen is evidence of Sisi’s growing alliance holding more influence.  King Abdullah (Jordan) is already on team Sisi.

This is good news for everyone who wants to see Islamic extremist elements confronted and removed.

      I had been wondering about this, because they already have Tent Cities that could house up to 3 million refugees. I had a feeling when they were left off the list that President Trump was working on something. Our President is simply amazing!

        Those tent cities are outside Mecca and are a major and religiously significant part of the pilgrimage Muslims make to Mecca, the “Hejira”. The idea that they would be converted to refugee camps is one that no one would seriously breach, as it would likely be taken as deeply insulting and undignifiedly ignorant. The high levels of the administration — any administration — would never speak so poorly for the USA, and we should be glad they wouldn’t.

        No. It was intentional, because the Central Banks were behind this in order to create chaos throughout the world with the mass flood of refugee immigration! Saudi Arabia was just a conduit in order to make this happen, in case their plan failed the Tent city was a back up plan. Now that the damage has already been done, of course they will acquiesce to housing refugees, they want to come off as being an important favorable Ally in the eye of public opinion. The reason they are considered an ally is because of our thirst for Oil, nothing else otherwise Saudi Arabia is no friend to the West.

Islam is secondary when the two countries are competing for dominance for market share. That is a fact! The reason for the tent cities is more to do with convenient coincidence. Of course you believe that serves the pilgrimage to Mecca, which is why they remained empty for so long.

Also for the record I never said that you were incorrect in your premise about what the tents were used for, but it is a fact that the tents were being unused and were vacant for a very long time, while the refugee crisis was raging on all over the world and the timing in which this announcement was made ,that Saudi Arabia agrees to use them to house refugees is suspect at best. If you can’t see that in the context in which I originally articulated, then I will not try further to clarify it for you.

      It’s absolute deal making at the highest level. While the Left melts down, Trump keeps working. He basically made a deal to pacify Syria in exchange for helping to pacify Yemen. Syria and Yemen are proxy wars between Iran and Saudi Arabia (gulf states). In Syria, its Sunni extremist trying to take down the Iranian backed Assad regime. In Yemen, its Shitte extremists/terrorists that are trying to takeover there.

      It’s quite amazing that Trump can thread this needle between essentially Russia (Iran, Syria, and Turkey) and Saudi Arabia (Gulf States). Then you have the pure US allies in Jordan and Egypt with Iraq in the middle of it all. Trump essentially is coming in to clean up the messes of George W. Bush and Barack Obama and today he’s showing he can accomplish this but it will be difficult. The good news is that every major leader involved except the Iranian mullahs are looking forward to better relations with Trump or like Trump. Think about it, Erdogan has been favorable towards Trump, Putin, El Sisi, Netanyahu, King Abdullah of Jordan, and now the Crown Prince in Saudi Arabia. If anyone is best positioned to achieve stability and peace in the Middle East, it’s Trump!

      There is war ahead. War in Syria and Iraq to destroy ISIS. War in Yemen to destroy the Houthis. And war in Libya to destroy al Qaeda and the extremist groups there. How does Trump excecute all of this? With allies and with having the financial burden borne by those who would benefit. Then when all of that has been done, work on the Israeli-Palestinian situation having everyone as a Trump ally in the Middle East, perhaps even Iran! My concern for an extraordinary man like Trump is for his life. Rarely does a consequential, once in a lifetime figure not face an attempt on his life. Pray for his safety daily. MAGA!!

          Don’t bother, they are to coffee what baskin robbins is to ( real ) ice cream. You figure this out as soon as you get your first cup. They are the product of an unholy fusion of polar opposites, hippies and yuppies, and exist to serve the sheeple. Nothing in there you can’t more cheaply buy and make yourself, except for branded logo shirts and other merchandising. Dunkin has always felt more blue collar and is far more expedient. And their coffee is better IMHO.

          So the CEO of Starbucks was a $hillary supporter. As someone mentioned below they declared their chain a gun-free zone. At least one cop has been apologized to for being refused service ( any cop that goes in there is crazy since you know they will spit in their cup ) which is perfectly illustrative of the idiocracy of liberalism since the never rob a donut shop because cops are inside metaphor excapes them! And now the CEO is really trying to sink the company.

          He will soon learn the meaning of fiduciary responsibility to stockholders means. One tweet from the Prez will blow this up and the stock will tank. When will CEO’s ever learn that charged political statements and business do not mix? Creating a controversy where 50% of your customers hate you and boycott you and meme you to death is the opposite of fiduciary responsibility. Its called suicide. We’ll soon see how stupid he really is.

      Schultz, a supporter of Hillary Clinton during the presidential run, took aim at other parts of a Trump agenda focused on immigration, repealing former President Barack Obama’s health care law and restructuring trade with Mexico. The letter said that Starbucks would help support coffee growers in Mexico, provide health insurance to eligible workers if the health care law is repealed and back an Obama-era immigration program that allows young immigrants who were brought to the country as children to apply for a two-year reprieve from deportation and a work permit.

If true and the refugees can be verified (not up to Starbucks however much they want to virtue signal), what’s the problem?

        Thanks for the additional info. The problem for me is the constant virtue signaling of Clinton-supporting Shultz, plus if there are U.S. veterans looking for work @ Starbucks, they should be first in line. I don’t recall ever seeing Shultz virtue signal about U.S. vets or garden variety American deplorables. I don’t think we’re “his people.”

        Starbucks so humanitarian! Hiring immigrants who have served with US troops!
        They don’t know Arab culture very much do they? Serving coffee is a peon’s – a servant’s job. They won’t go for anything less than drivers and security jobs PLUS, if they were translating that means they are well-educated, i.e. college/university level, and in the case of Iraqis, they have a 4,000 year history/culture of engineering so that’s one of their most popular university diplomas. Jobs were scarce with the wars, so PhDs were driving taxis. They come from a country where every household rich, middle class and even poor have at least one servant, the higher the income the more household staff, who serve them tea and coffee at least twice a day.

        How condescending Starbucks is to assume that incoming Iraqis would be grateful to them for a low-pay, beneath their social class menial serving job when they could go to the Texas oilfields or a major construction firm instead and get a $150,000 salary instead!
        Okay, they would go for ‘managers’ at Starbucks who oversee the menial laborers who work the counter.

    Methinks after all the stunning accomplishments of President Trump in just one week in office that Obama would be so humiliated that he would be inclined to keep his mouth shut instead of further humiliation when Trump counter-punches anything Obama has to say.

    But then I remember, Obama is a Democrat politician and therefore has no shame nor a clue.

    What was Saudi to do? They funded ISIS through Hillary and probably other politicians (suspect McCain) and probably other actions we do not know about. Trump probably has them by the balls and this is the easiest way out for the Saudis.

    In essence they have a bloody hand in the conditions in Syria, so they should pay now having lost the war. This way it is a win for Saudis (verses alternative) and Trump gets exactly what he campaigned on.

    Yesterday Trump was the bad guy for banning Muslims and today he is the hero. Media must be going crazy, one campaign promise after another fulfilled.

      Not really a big win for the Saudis since by failing to remove Assad, it looks like they won’t get their Qatar-Saudi pipeline across Syria and Turkey into the European market. AFAIK that was a large part of the motivation behind all of this.

      On the other hand, they do have an opportunity to spiff up their public image and probably get President Trump to back off their case, at least for a while. I have a feeling that the cost to them of things like the proposed safe-areas are probably chump change.

  40. Can you imagine the stories this senior staff will uncover and mostly be unable to tell for years? I mean just for the sake of peace and restoring integrity to the office. This deal IS AMAZING btw.

    The following is figment of my imagination to illustrate my point. It’s fake. But what if…King S told POTUS on the phone that he payed for safe zones 4 years ago which never went in effect through an informal agreement with a notorious former SoS. The sum being around $25 Million. What if that notorious former SoS didn’t get a “contribution” for $25M? We’ll know the truth years from now. But I’m glad I can trust this admin with extremely large numbers not distracting the mission at hand. Because THIS admin believes in serving the people and already made extremely large transactions in private sector.

    I love it when President Trump gets various players to “put some skin in the game” so to speak. The Saudis have done it with these proposed “safe zones”. (Not to be confused with the libs’ “safe spaces”.) I know of some other major players that need to put some skin into these zones: George Soros can begin by donating all that hanging skin on his ugly face! There’s enough that can be stretched out to cover at least an acre! While the techs are working on him, Nancy Pelosi can discontinue her botox injections, and then donate her sagging face and neck too! But the best skin of all will come from Rosie’s giant ass, which engineers can stretch into a modern-day Asstrodome, the mother of all safe zones! I’m sure my fellow Treepers can add to the list. MAGA!
