50,000 Saudi Mercenaries In Jordan Ready To Invade Syria

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

According to Foreign Policy magazine, Saudi Arabia is lining up an army of about 50 000 men, in Jordan, with the help of Pakistani instructors. 

This information is not new, since the plan has been known to our readers for quite some time. However, the initial strategy had envisaged an attack for last August by a column of armoured tanks, supported by the US army. The Saudi Vice-Minister of Defence installed himself in Amman to oversee the formation of this army and ensure the transfer of the tanks from Saudi Arabia. A meeting was held in Amman from 25 to 27 August 2013, chaired by CentCom Commander General Lloyd J. Austin III, to prepare for the operation. For communication purposes, the crew on the first armoured tanks was to be made up of Syrians recruited from refugee camps, while mercenaries would compose the major part of the troops.

The news is that the article in Foreign Policy came out after John Kerry’s trip to Riyadh to restore good relations between the two countries. It the report is confirmed, it would prove that Saudi Arabia is going ahead with this plan even though U.S. military forces have backed out of Syria.

Fascinating. I was totally unaware of this development somehow as I follow the Syrian conflict closely.  No wonder the Saudis were pissed when we backed out of bombing Syria.  I see this as a possible major turning point in the war.  But it really depends on wether or not this army will be trained well or not.  Certaintly an invasion from Jordan would be bad for Jordan and Im not sure it would go well with the King there but obviously he must have approved something or they wouldn’t be there in the 1st place.  Invading from Jordan would be a challeneg to Assad for sure.

      I think that if this group show to even start to move, Syria have the right to end them right there and then with any weapons they choose to use. Massing forces close to the border is an intentional threat, and I am sure a war crime. I hope Syria has hidden chemical weapons, they might need it.

      • ecclesiatical

        That is what they are waiting for the removal of the chemical weapons,

        This also makes me think Putin had something to do with it. It might have been planned like this between the two leaders. The whole Kerry, Obama and Putin play worked to the Saudi/israHell favour. And they are very busy lining up Iran at the same time.

        FP article is behind a paywall and useless for readers.

      Mankind is on the verge of extinction, and a tribulation the like humanity has never seen before is about to be unleashed on humanity, wars will only contribute to the madness.

      What people really need is for all those prayers for.. ‘Gods kingdom to come and his will to be done on earth as it is in heaven’… to finally be answered. (Mt 6:9-10)

      “Fill their faces with dishonor, That people may search for your name, O Jehovah. O may they be ashamed and be disturbed for all times, And may they become abashed and perish; That people may know that you, whose name is Jehovah, You alone are the Most High over all the earth”. (Ps 83:16-18)

      When Communists fight Nazis or Sunnis fight Shiites…….Do I care? No.

      This article reminds me of the Bay of Pigs fiasco where I did care by the way.

      The Obama :lol: purge underway in the USSA military also reminds me of Stalin’s purge of the capable Red Army generals early in WWII.

    • Solidus1

      The Sunni and Shiite fight is heating up, which is why Russia is looking to Egypt for a stable presence in the Mediterranean. Western powers have long ignored the Sunni and Shia division or attempted to use it to advantage. Both strategies failed in the Cold War and both continue to fail.

      More details re: what Saudi is doing to foment this war to get their pipeline built:

      It is becoming more apparent to the world that indeed it was Saudi Arabia behind the Syria event and now they are pissed-off at the US for not invading so they get their pipeline. Oil has been used as a political weapon, but as the US is emerging as energy self-sufficient, the power the Saudi’s once held is diminishing and the pipeline was vital to compete for Europe against Russia. As previously reported, Saudi Arabia threatened even Russia promising no terror attacks if they handed over Syria. Every “real” source demonstrates the chemical weapons came from Saudi Arabia and the claims of the Russians are not propaganda. This begs the question – if the Saudi’s can promise no terror attacks at the Winter Olympics, then does that imply they control terrorism?

      Cannon fodder.

      That would make sense given that “Palestinians” are really Jordanian Arabs.

      • Anonymous

        True enough–there is no race of people called “Palestinians”. The name was popularized by Yassir Arafat–an Egyptian by birth. All are bedouins…

        • Mirabolin

          And there’s no such race as United Statesians. All are tresspassing gentiles. Like the Palestinians. Which is why all the Arabs will eventually be deported to America.

    • Mansur

      This is really crazy. Why can’t we leave Syria alone.? Why are we bent on destroying a Muslim country? We should make friends rather then create an enemy of a brotherly muslim country. If Saudis are in trouble it is the Syrians who will come to the rescue.

      For the most part all of Assads troops are battle harden and well lead, plus they have Iranian special forces along with Hesbula forces at there disposal. If this 50,000 man armor force does invade my contention is that Assad will also have Russian and possibly Egyptian forces at his disposal to deal with them. This Pakistani lead force will crumble and wither away once they meet a serious non-third world force head on. The Russians would rip them to shreds, same being said if Assad deployed Serbians. This war has from the vary beginning been a Saudi Arabian orchestrated invasion, the Saudi’s did the same thing to Gaddafi in Libya and almost lost it if it wasn’t for there arm twisting of Obama who than turn the American Air Forces into the Al-Qaida Air Force, Gaddafi was all set to wipe out the Al-Qaida invasion force in Libya. Remember Gaddafi’s army remained loyal to the vary end, they never turn on him, or ran away in battle, they were caught out in mid desert and wipe out like the Iraqi army was in Kuwait.

      And some people don’t believe in God. lol.
      The arabs are killing each other while Israel simply stands by & is peaceful.
      Ah, but what if it is all a ruse?
      What if the Arabs are all secretly plotting to attack Israel?
      Israel would not allow such a buildup if it seemed hostile, and previous Arab-Israeli wars didn’t go so well. So, maybe this is all a clever sneak-attack plan.

    • Termite

      Don’t you mean 50000 PAID Saudi mercenaries…..real Saudis don’t do the dirty work.

    • Call It Like It Is...

      The United States has turned it’s back on Saudi Arabia, Israel, Egypt, Libya, Jordan, Afghanistan, Iraq, Taiwan and several other Countries that used to be our Allies…

      Barrack O’Bama has severely angered Countries all around the World and they will refuse to be with us when we need them the most… The rest of the World hates the U.S.

      The United States has ZERO credibility with our so called Allies and other Countries…
