T-Rex Updates: The Ongoing ‘Coalition -vs- Qatar’ Discussions…

(VIA STATE DEPT) Qatar has begun its careful review and consideration of a series of requests presented by Bahrain, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and UAE.

While some of the elements will be very difficult for Qatar to meet, there are significant areas which provide a basis for ongoing dialogue leading to resolution.

A productive next step would be for each of the countries to sit together and continue this conversation. We believe our allies and partners are stronger when they are working together towards one goal which we all agree is stopping terrorism and countering extremism.

Each country involved has something to contribute to that effort. A lowering of rhetoric would also help ease the tension. The United States will continue to stay in close contact with all parties and will continue to support the mediation efforts of the Emir of Kuwait.

~ U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson

    Groundwork has started for a big win.
    Our media will continue its circle jerk over Russia.
    The People will learn and know what’s happening in their own way.
    Bye MSM! You all suck. Just like CNN.

    The animals that control North Africa and the ME (ISIS, al-Nusra, Hezbollah, Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas, Al-Qaeda, Taliban etc) days are truly numbered. What has occurred this past week with King Salman appointing his son, Mohammed bin Salman, as his heir and the post SD shared about the demands for Qatar is monumental. The reports of Jared Kushner’s visits to Israel and Palestine are also very encouraging.

    The demands on Qatar are HUGE in the grand scheme of things! There is no way this would have occurred if anyone other than our President had been elected. This unequivocally tells me that Saudi Arabia is ALL IN. That in and of it self is massive because they have the money needed to make sure that the military equipment used as part of this glorious coalition is modern and up-to-date. It takes a tremendous amount of pressure away from the Great President of Egypt, al-Sisi. President al-Sisi will continue to be the mastermind behind all the negotiations. He is so well respected in the region for being the one person that was able to spit in the face of Barry from Hawaii. He is also loved and admired by Egyptians as well as our President.

    The Muslim Brotherhood is being chocked everywhere they turn. The last place for them will be Turkey. Our President is setting up something big with Poland, Romania and Hungary. Those countries don’t want a single Muslim allowed in. It will also send a clear message to France, Germany and Italy that if they don’t cleanup their garbage, they can and will be replaced. Our alliance with Eastern Europe will allow us such tremendous leverage.

    Amazing what good leaders that want to protect themselves and their countries will do when they are lead by a man that wants the SAME things as they do for us and our country. I have said this before but when our President finally visits Egypt, the celebrations in the streets of Cairo will make us all cry like babies because it will be overwhelming the LOVE they will show him!

    WE are the luckiest people on the face of the earth. Our grand kids and their kids will see North Africa and the ME as a place they can visit while Europe will be a no fly zone because all that will be left is the extremist that were run out of North Africa and the ME. I don’t have a doubt with our President at the helm followed by the Egyptian Lion in North Africa with the financial backing of King Salman and his newly appointed heir taking care of all the financial needs.

    Our Lion working hand-in-hand with the Egyptian Lion! A match truly made in HEAVEN!

    The real threat is Iran:

    “Several of the allegations against { 2 American citizen s} Kourani and El Debek connect them – albeit indirectly – to an IJO network responsible for orchestrating a wave of terrorist plots on behalf of the Iranian regime in 2012.

    That year witnessed a “marked resurgence of Iran’s state sponsorship of terrorism, through its Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps – Qods Force (IRGC-QF), its Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS), and Tehran’s ally” Hizballah, the State Department said in its Country Reports on Terrorism 2012. Iran and Hizballah’s “terrorist activity…reached a tempo unseen since the 1990s, with attacks plotted in Southeast Asia, Europe, and Africa.”
    Foggy Bottom went on to cite plots and attacks in Cyprus, Georgia, India, Kenya, and Thailand as evidence of Iran’s worldwide campaign of terror in 2012. [See FDD’s Long War Journal report, State Department highlights Iran’s ‘marked resurgence’ of state-sponsored terrorism.]

    Some of these same plots – all carried out under the direction of Hizballah’s Islamic Jihad Organization (IJO) – are referenced in the complaints filed against Kourani and El Debek.


    So while all this is taking place, the President of the United States, Barrack Obama, along with the Congress of the United States, were actively lifting sanctions on Iran, lifting sanctions on Iranian banks, delivering billions in gold and cash to Iran, and dropping charges against 14 major Iranian terrorist targets and freeing 7 Iranian federally convicted nationals.

    Russia, which is obviously aligned with Shia Iran, is responding to the threat of a Sunni caliphate which was in the process of actually being built by Turkey, the Muslim Brotherhood and Isis. Thankfully Russia stepped in to save Assad, and Egypt is now save due to the support of the Trump administration.

    Russia doesn’t want any caliphate, and neither does Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Jordan because those three nations represent the old cold-war era dynasties which would be swept away if any Islamist caliphate came to power. So why on earth are Russia and America not talking in this situation because a greater more stable alliance could be formed? Instead, we are setting up a new cold-war which would be a potentially catastrophic outcome because we absolutely are going to need Christian and proud nation state believing Russia when bloody ideological civil wars start breaking out across the West against the radical progressives which as we know hates Russia and Eastern Europe with a passion.

    Radical progressives in the West desperately want to see the Muslim Brotherhood and Turkey succeed. Have they successfully scared Trump away from working with Russia? Or are there progressives in the Trump administration pushing him towards an outcome that will see Assad removed? Or is Israel, which I greatly support, so fixated with the threat of Hezbollah that they have convinced Trump to go after all Islamic terrorists in the region which would obviously include their main foe?

    Qatar was only given 10 days to comply with the list of ‘requests’ that the Alliance gave them.

    I’m not sure if the countdown started on the 21st or the 22nd…but they don’t have very long to reach a decision.

    Love the combo picture of Suspicious Cat with T-Rex, Sundance.
    Heheheh. That is brilliant.

    Can’t help but think that there is a connection between King Salman’s move of making his son the next in line for the throne…and stripping Prince Feyed of his power…to this ultimatum that was given to Qatar.

    Maybe Feyed was involved with the Muslim Brotherhood & Qatar, on the sly?
    I don’t know.
    But reviewing some videos of Obama with Feyed made me think so.

    Anyway, it’s great to watch T-Rex and our President work their magic on Mideast diplomacy.
    We are watching history being made.

    “We are watching history being made”. Do you know how many times that has been said over the past 60 years? The Sunni Shia rift will not be resolved until one eliminates the other. Until then the Forever War will continue. We may get it to calm down for awhile but this is a 1300 year old problem.

      Maybe. Maybe not.

      All of these conflicts changed just after WWI, when oil was discovered in the Middle East.

      These people were not in blood disputes with each other. The various societies in the Near East and Middle East were multicultural.

      Mark Twain toured the Levant in the later 1800s, and found it to be a sleepy little place.

      Post-WWI, the British conducted a major survey of the Levant. It was a sleepy little place.

      Late 1908, oil was discovered in Iran. One argument is that the problems really begin at that point.

      The Communists have been in the Middle East for quite a while. A good handful of Zionists/Communists were mixed in with the other Jews coming to the NE / The Palestine / Israel in the late 1800s.

      Generally. the Communists hold OUR society as THE enemy. And, they believe that when the Workers of the World finally revolt, the INEVITABLE resolution will be Communism, where there is no longer the dialectic of owner / laborer. So, for over 100 years, we have had social engineers trying to bring down our society by any trick they can use, and this includes by fomenting social division in the Near East and Middle East.

      Bill Ayers himself has been over in Gaza causing trouble.

        Not to mention the Rockefellers.

        Good old Commie Globalist, Maurice Strong got his start with the Rockefellers in Saudi Arabia.

        I have zero evidence but I see Rockefeller fingerprints all over the Saudi’s ‘nationalizing their oil industry’ followed by forming OPEC and jacking up the price of oil to double then triple the amount right after Nixon took the USA off gold. Remember we ended up with the Petro-Dollar and moving away from the Petro-Dollar to gold or the Euro is what got Gadhafi in trouble. Iran moved to the EURO in 2005

        By the early 1880s the Rockefellers controlled ~ 90 percent of U.S. refineries and pipelines. In 1911, the U.S. Supreme Court found Standard Oil in violation of anti-trust laws and ordered it to dissolve. In 1933 Standard Oil Company of California (Socal) negotiated the first oil concession in Saudi Arabia with Saudi Finance Minister Abdullah Sulaiman.
        A bit more on the history and control of ARAMCO & The House Of Saud

        Reading these articles, having EXXON’s Ex-CEO in charge may have A LOT to do with the shift in policies.

        With Maurice Strong, David Rockefeller, and King Fahd. Abdullah all dead, the old guard is gone so we are seeing a shifting in power. (Thank goodness we now have lions running our country.)

        NM Rothschild, the investment bank, chaired the London meetings setting the world gold price since 1919. In 2004, NM Rothschild withdrew from all its commodity trading activities, which also includes an oil trading business set up less than two years earlier. The withdrawal from the gold market was one of the first major strategic moves by Baron David de Rothschild after taking control of the bank from his cousin, Sir Evelyn de Rothschild.

    The demands on Qatar are obviously negotiable, however Qatar knows that the demands are made on evidence they can not refute. The SA (also UAE) have unparalleled surveillance of all Qatar’s communications courtesy of BAE systems (British defense company).

    Pres al Sisi and Prince Salmon have struck a deal over two Red Sea islands that al-Sisi has finalised, though this move was controversial for Egypt. This will open and secure access to the Red Sea ports for Israel.

    In SE Asia, Asean countries are joining forces to combat Islamic terrorism as the IS has declared them part of their caliphate and is expanding there as they are defeated in Syria. Singapore is their latest target. Singapore was the first nation in Asia to back the US anti-terrorism coalition. It is no wonder that KT McFarland was nominated to be ambassador, though confirmation is still languishing in the wastrel senate.

    Iran of course backs Qatar, has gleefully displayed their death to Israel clock countdown and now has approved visa free access to Iran for Russian tourists.
    (forgive me, I need to snort).

    I like reading Thomas Wictor’s Twitter line because a lot of what he posts is in line with Sundance’s take on the positive things happening in the ME, albeit from a completely different perspective. While Sundance’s is more of a political perspective, Thomas’ is from a military point of view. His research is on who is doing what militarily and he makes these determinations by studying the weaponry being used and the uniforms worn by those using them.

    It gives me great hope that two such brilliant men – Thomas Wictor and of course, Sundance, come to the same general conclusions about what’s happening in the ME from two totally different points of view. Here on the home front, both writers hold President Trump in high regard and have enormous faith in his ability to win against the evil forces aligned against him.

    I am so grateful for the Treehouse. I so appreciate having information to counteract the noise out there. But more than that, it’s having it delivered in such an intelligent, insightful, confident manner, with a touch of humor thrown in from time to time. Hmmm….where’s that tip jar?
    It’s time again to demonstrate my appreciation in a practical way!

One is the MOST POWERFUL MAN IN THE WORLD, the other, is the 3rd or 4th(IMHO) MOST POWERFUL MAN IN THE WORLD, and that booger eater wears sandals. For that alone, his entire country should be turned into a parking lot. And then we can send all the illegals we have here to rebuild the place and we’ll have access to more oil than we know what to do with.
