The Saudis and the other Sunni Arab states which have funded ISIS are now going to form a Coalition army and defeat them?

As a proposition, the whole thing is a nonsense because, as Dr Alf says, their military capability is questionable and clearly, it is obvious that they have been pushed into this by the West because their motives and policies have, like Turkey’s, been comprehensively rumbled.

I suggest that the real purpose of this Coalition army is to act as America’s proxy and “take-down ” the Assad regime, not fight ISIS who have set up their headquarters in Libya. They see Turkey’s regional ambitions to rebuild the Ottoman empire, which once covered the Gulf, and they see that Turkey has already technically invaded Iraq with tanks and troops, and they realise that people throughout the world see them as the bankrollers of Boko Haram, Al Shabab and similar movements in Asia.

People need to understand that Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Jordan,Turkey and Qatar are not our friends – so they’re not necessarily people to whom we should be selling arms, dealing with nor trying to support.
