I regard Cunningham as a very knowledgeable and reliable source of information related to the Middle East.
In this piece he provides his interpretation of the growing conflict between Saudi Arabia and the US Empire which could have major consequences in the world scene. Read his analysis to see how he comes to the following conclusions:
The explosive danger for the Middle East region from a turbo-charged Saudi sulk with Washington over Syria, including more false flag terror attacks, could result in the kind of all-out war that the US so recklessly dallied with but pulled back from last month.
Perhaps even more worrying for Washington would be if the Saudis started tampering with the petrodollar life-support system. Never mind that that would also probably spell the downfall of the House of Saud. When a kingdom is ruled by temper-tantrum despots the danger of irrationality is always a contingency.
