ME realignment ?
#1
Stratfor mentions today two new developments in the ME, both not confirmed at this time:

1. Apparent cooling of the US-Qatar relations and the possibility of the US base in Qatar being closed.
2. Apparent secret contacts between the Israelis and the Saudis

The relation may be that Qatar is a Shia state, maybe moving to the Iran column; the Saudis have reasons to be concerned about the rise of Iran and the Israeli inability to smash Hizbollah.

If either of the developments gets confirmed, it may become a big reshuffle.
Government is necessary because people left unchecked will do evil.

The government is composed of people left unchecked

Wow! Israel collaborating with SA, even if just covert sharing of info against a common perceived threat?!?!? If true, talk about some strange bedfellows! Shock
