The Times of London reports that Saudi authorities are saying they would close down air defenses to allow Israeli bombers to fly overhead on the way to Iran’s nuclear sites.
According to the story, sources in Saudi Arabia say it is common knowledge within defence circles in the kingdom that an arrangement is in place if Israel decides to launch the raid. Despite the tension between the two governments, they share a mutual loathing of the regime in Tehran and a common fear of Iran’s nuclear ambitions. “We all know this. We will let them [the Israelis] through and see nothing,” said one.
If this is true, the Saudis have a far better grasp of rality than Barack Obama...but then, who doesn't?
