Day Of Rage: Saudi Arabia In Veiled Threat To US

March 9, 2011
As the world braces itself for Saudi Arabia's "day of rage" on Friday, which many fear could be the spark that sends oil prices soaring to beyond the $200 a barrel mark, Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saud Al-Faisal issued a veiled threat to the United States, warning that the Kingdom was prepared to "cut foreign fingers" in the event of any outside interference.
The "day of rage" was been organized by Saudi youths using a Facebook page that has attracted over 17,000 members. A message posted on the page also called for a "Saudi Revolution" demanding democratic and political reform on March 20.
48 hours ahead of the first protest, Saudi Arabian Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal issued a stern message to outsiders who saw the demonstrations as an opportunity to advance geopolitical plans against the oil-rich country.
Claiming the protests violated, "The Koran and the way of the Prophet," Faisal vowed that the Kingdom would "cut off" any accusing finger of foreign nations who condemned the government's response to the Shiite protests, which is expected to be brutal.
"Faisal, who is the nephew of King Abdullah bin Abdul-Aziz, said Saudi Arabia "rejects any foreign interference in its internal affairs," reports RIA Novosti.
Although the warning is ostensibly a shot across the bow aimed at the Iranian government, which has encouraged Saudi revolutionaries to take on the Kingdom, it is also undoubtedly a veiled threat directed towards the United States, after the US made it clear that it expected the Saudi Kingdom to respect protesters' rights to freedom of expression.
On Monday, State Department spokesman Philip Crowley aligned the Obama administration with the protesters, urging the Saudis to tolerate the "peaceful assembly" of demonstrators.
Are we seeing a repeat of what happened to Egypt's Hosni Mubarak, with the United States planning to hijack the protests and double cross their traditional ally in a stunning geopolitical stunt that would send shock waves across the globe?
It is certainly not beyond the realms of possibility that, just as we have witnessed in Libya, the US military-industrial complex could hijack the fallout from a revolution in Saudi Arabia and use it as a vehicle through which to advance geopolitical maneuvers in the name of "humanitarian" assistance or "maintaining stability".
But could this stretch to an actual military campaign directed against the Saudi Kingdom? Let's not forget that in 1973, when King Faisal imposed an oil embargo on countries that supported Israel during the October War, the United States, and specifically top globalist and then US State Secretary Henry Kissinger, considered attacking Saudi Arabia's oil fields.
