Is this the biggest bounty of all time?!?! My goodness, some serious, serious money resides on the Arabian Peninsula. Of course we already knew that, but still, the offer below is just mind melting. Iraq cost over a trillion and the Arab Royals and Emirs are very aware of that!
Transcript from today’s hearing with the House of Reps on the Syrian attack authorization legislation:
“Secretary of State John Kerry said at Wednesday’s hearing that Arab counties
have offered to pay for the entirety of unseating President Bashar al-Assad if
the United States took the lead militarily.
“With respect to Arab countries offering to bear costs and to assess, the
answer is profoundly yes,” Kerry said. “They have. That offer is on the table.”
Asked by Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.) about how much those countries would
contribute, Kerry said they have offered to pay for all of a full invasion.”
What a far out exchange! If you read this in a Tom Clancy novel you would have laughed at how incredibly far fetched it sounds. It is not a good sign just as to how volatile this situation is with Syria when the oil royals offer to part with literally a blank check…
