Saudi Arabia cuts diplomatic ties with Iran over embassy storming
Posted 1/3/16 , edited 1/3/16



Saudi Arabia has cut diplomatic ties with Iran over the storming of its embassy in Tehran on Saturday. The move comes while relations between the regional rivals are plunging over the execution of a top Shiite cleric.

Speaking at a press conference on Sunday, Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir demanded that the Iranian diplomatic mission and related entities leave the country within 48 hours.

He said Riyadh would not allow the Islamic Republic to undermine the Sunni kingdom’s security.

Iran doesn't stand a chance against Saudi Arabia and should just give up p. Not to mention all the damage Russia is doing in Iran right now. They got enough problems if something does happen I will bet on Saudi Arabia no way can Iran stand up to Saudi Arabia

Well fuck. More diplomatic tension in the Middle East. That's just what we needed, isn't it?


Hopefully things won't escalate further. But you never know how things will play out on the world stage. On the bright side, however, it's highly unlikely that this incident alone will lead to something as drastic as war. Iran has its fair share of problems already. Adding another to the list probably isn't on their list of priorities.

Here let me give you a summary of the past 2000 years of history in the middle east.

Someone claims some land.
Someone else claims that land.
Those two insult one another.
Those two get into a skirmish with one another.
Those two both call their buddies in.
One side wins.
The buddy then occupies and claims the territory either by direct control or indirectly (puppets)
Go back to step 1.

The Iranians can encourage Shias and other Muslims denominations to cause trouble in Saudi Arabia.
Even Hezbollah might get involved

Yet there are people in the USA who want laws to be based on the Bible.

Letting any religion have such an position is oppression towards other religions and as such breaks the right of expressing oneself.
