"There are similarities: back in the 1980s, the UC Congress passed an amendment (the Boland amendment) to ban the US administration from arming the right-wing death squads of Nicaragua (the Contras who were referred to in US media as "revolutionaries"). Reagan turned to Saudi Arabia and Prince Bandar was in charge of financing and arming the Contras. In 2013, the US Congress and public had no appetite to arm the Syrian death squads (the "revolutionary" groups, according to US right-wing and leftist media), so the Obama administration turned to...Saudi Arabia and none other than Prince Bandar was put in charge of the operation. You would think that this is a kooky leftist conspiracy theory but it is true.
PS Another similarity: I disliked Ortega just as I dislike Bashshar."
Don't forget the massive role of World Jewry in each case.
Any counterattack by the victims should include regime change in Saudi Arabia (where the corrupt princes hold on by a thread), helped along by a Shi'ite revolt which Iran should be able to arrange. Also, if Iran is going to lob anything at Israel, it might also want to lob some missiles at the Saudis, including at their massively vulnerable oil pipelines (causing immediate world chaos). Despite hundreds of billions of dollars of expenditures for American weapons, the Saudis are completely unable to defend themselves.
The slow death of the Middle East by 1000 cuts on the path to building Greater Israel by forcing the American host to serve the Jewish parasites can only be stopped by Apocalypse Now.
