Saudi Arabia

The U.S. and Al Qaida in Love and War

A Black Agenda Radio commentary by executive editor Glen Ford

The U.S., Saudi Arabia and al Qaida are on the same side in the wars in Syria and Yemen. Indeed, the “international jihadist network owes its very existence to the United States,” which “created the global infrastructure of terror” in Afghanistan in the late 1970s. However, jihadist and imperialist interests are ultimately irreconcilable. In the end, the U.S. will be expelled from the region, and the Saudi royalty will lose their heads.

Yemeni ground troops are not much use for invading their native land, and Egypt is reluctant to intervene, so the bombs fall.
