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.

Guardians of the Belt and Road

Guardians of the Belt and RoadThe internationalization of China's private security companiesby Helena Legarda and Meia NouwensFollowing the build-up of infrastructure and investment projects along China’s extensive Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), private security companies from China are also increasingly going global – to protect Chinese assets and the growing number of Chinese nationals living and working in countries along the BRI, in sometimes unstable regions. Out of the 5,000 registered Chinese private security companies, 20 provide international services, employing 3,200 security personnel in countries like Iraq, Sudan and Pakistan.The impact of this newly developing Chinese activity abroad is analyzed in this MERICS China Monitor. Chinese private security companies’ international activities pose a challenge to European interests as they are often largely unregulated and their security staff are often inexperienced in dealing with serious conflict situations and combat.
