Flying well below the radar of the Mainstream Media was the House of Saud’s recent refusal to be a part of the current United Nations Security Council. The Saudi government cites the United Nations refusal (and thus by default, the United States) to engage in military action against the Assad regime in Syria. This refusal is far more significant than the sum of its parts – it is a strong signal from the Saudis of a desire to see a greatly enhanced, strengthened, and militaristic United Nations. In effect, the House of Saud is now calling for a New United Nations. Readers of my books know well the implications of THAT chilling term…

Saudi Arabia rejects seat on U.N. Security Council, says 15-nation body unable to solve world’s crises
Saudi Arabia is rejecting its seat on the U.N. Security Council and says the 15-member body is incapable of resolving world conflicts.
The move came just hours after the kingdom was elected as one of the Council’s 10 nonpermanent members.
In a statement carried on Friday by the official Saudi Press Agency, the Saudi Foreign Ministry accused the Council of having “double standards” and failing in its duties toward Syria.
It says this alleged failure enabled Syrian President Bashar Assad’s regime to perpetrate the killings of its people, including with chemical weapons, without facing any deterrents or punishment.
…The Ministry also says the Council has not been able to resolve the Palestinian-Israeli conflict over the past decades and has failed to transform the Middle East into a zone free of weapons of mass destruction. LINK
Please note the now open outrage by the House of Saud over the United State’s failure to bomb Assad into oblivion. Many Americans wondered why Barack Obama, who could not act against Libyan terrorists attacking a United States ambassador, and who has ignored bloody conflicts around the globe, was so determined to engage our military in Syria.
Look to Saudi Arabia.
The current American president was doing THEIR bidding, using this nation’s military as a chess piece for the House of Saud’s ongoing work in dominating the Middle East and much of the world.
