Commentary on Saudi Arabia and Yemen

Below is an excerpt from chat conversation in Social Media

Doomsday! #SaudiArabia must hang Pakistani army Gen Raheel Sharif who is leading Islamic Military Alliance funded by Saudi. Entire 3 brigades of KSA either ran over by Houthis or surrendered to Yemenis in Saudi territory! What a shame #PakistanArmy

The Saudi Kingdom is rich with oil resources. That's about it. Morally it's corrupt and weak. The petro dollar has given the Saudi's a false sense of bravado and vanity. They have the latest war machinery and that's about it. Who operates them ? Outsiders, Non Saudi's. The foot soldiers are drawn from poor nations like Sudan Chad etc and are fighting a war , which does not concern them. The Saudi Generals instead of leading from the front are comfortably confined to their Offices in cities. When Saddam Hussein invaded Kuwait, the Saudi Leadership was quacking in their boots and frothing from their mouth. Thanks to their oil wealth, they can buy the best of modern technology, and mercenaries like Retd Gen Raheel Shareef are available by the dozens. But can they fight. The answer is NO. The fact if matter is without the support of USA, Saudi Arabia would have been a cake walk for Iran and it's allies.

What happens to Saudi Arabia after they have exhausted all the oil reserves ? Do they have any alternative source of income ? Will they go back to their nomadic Beoudin ways of grazing camel's ? Iran is playing a waiting game - dangerous though, but they will prevail. Matter of time.

A ‘European Silk Road’

publication_icon Philipp Heimberger ,  Mario Holzner and Artem Kochnev wiiw Research Report No. 430, August 2018  43 pages including 10 Tables and 17 Figures FREE DOWNLOAD The German version can be found  here . In this study we argue for a ‘Big Push’ in infrastructure investments in greater Europe. We propose the building of a European Silk Road, which connects the industrial centres in the west with the populous, but less developed regions in the east of the continent and thereby is meant to generate more growth and employment in the short term as well as in the medium and long term. After its completion, the European Silk Road would extend overland around 11,000 kilometres on a northern route from Lisbon to Uralsk on the Russian-Kazakh border and on a southern route from Milan to Volgograd and Baku. Central parts are the route from Lyon to Moscow in the north and from Milan to Constanţa in the south. The southern route would link Central Europe with the Black Sea area and
