Saudi Arabia Threatens Terror Attacks On Russia If Putin Doesn’t Drop Support For Assad

Saudi Arabia has secretly offered Russia a sweeping deal to control the global oil market and safeguard Russia’s gas contracts, if the Kremlin backs away from the Assad regime in Syria.
The talks appear to offer an alliance between the OPEC cartel and Russia, which together produce over 40m barrels a day of oil, 45pc of global output. Such a move would alter the strategic landscape.
As-Safir said Prince Bandar pledged to safeguard Russia’s naval base in Syria if the Assad regime is toppled, but he also hinted at Chechen terrorist attacks on Russia’s Winter Olympics in Sochi if there is no accord. “I can give you a guarantee to protect the Winter Olympics next year. The Chechen groups that threaten the security of the games are controlled by us,” he allegedly said.
These revelatons come on the heels of Russia sending both warships and anti-shipmissiles to Syria in the last several days.  My guess is that they turned this down.  IF Syria is that important to Russia, and they seem to be given the deal Saudi Arabia was willing to give them, then I dont see why they wouldn’t put boots on the ground to make sure Assad stayed in power. 
The Saudis have some balls to be threatening Russia like this and there is one very unreliable source out there that says Russiais threatening Saudi Arabia with attacks on itsmilitary forces if Syria is struck by what would be essentially NATO. This really does have the dynamics of a world war 3 in the making. -Mort
