As U.S. and Iran Seek Nuclear Deal, Saudi Arabia Makes Its Own Moves

So maybe it’s really plunging into chaos now…..
It’s starting to look like a classic "power vacuum" situation.. and the US is looking like fools… and it really hurts to watch these naive WH people doing "diplomacy" and flying around the world to conduct negotiations and "top-level" meetings and so on…

CAIRO — As America talks to Iran, Saudi Arabia is lashing out against it.

The kingdom, Iran’s chief regional rival, is leading airstrikes against an Iranian-backed faction in Yemen; backing a blitz in Idlib, Syria, by jihadists fighting the Iranian-backed Assad regime; and warning Washington not to allow the Iranian-backed militia to capture too much of Iraq during the fight to roll back the Islamic State, according to Arab diplomats familiar with the talks.

Through Egypt, a major beneficiary of Saudi aid, the kingdom is backing plans for a combined Arab military force to combat Iranian influence around the region. With another major aid recipient, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia is also expected to step up its efforts to develop a nuclear bomb, potentially setting off an arms race in the region.
