The think tank here at Falling Downs saw a Saudi-instigated attack on Iran coming almost two years ago. That would obviously have to be done with the connivance of other Iran-haters in the neighbourhood. In fact, I fleshed out and shopped around that story with a few more details after Bandar visited Tel Aviv, but alas, there were no takers.
We must have been ahead of the curve, as we often are around here. Today the Sunday Times and Jerusalem Post are all over the story.
I'm actually less enamoured of the story today than I was then. Obama has sent out some strong signals that he is disinclined to rush into such an adventure. Would the two most belligerent US dependencies in the Middle East dare to start this without the backing of the big dog?
