#6 "Press TV is state-funded and is a division of the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB).

The annual budget of Press TV is 250 billion rials (more than 25 million US$).[11]

Press TV broadcasts news reports and analyses which are close to the official position of the Iranian government, and its programs are monitored and regulated by the Islamic Republic. Although there have been attempts to establish private, independent media outlets in Iran, notably by former Iranian Presidential candidate Mehdi Karroubi, the 1979 Constitution of the Islamic Republic mandates that "all broadcasting must exclusively be government-operated.""

-- Wikipedia

And the Iranian government just loves the Saudis so excuse me if I doubt the veracity of the report.

#9 Why do we think Saudi are our ally in the region?

For various and sundry regions, Lord Rhetorical.

"Ally' implies that there is common interest present, as in "the USSR was an ally during World War II". It is much different than "friend"; something that does not exist in the world of foreign policy.

#10 Yokay, I'll bite - does this mean the Saudis like + trust PRO-QAEDA AL-NUSRA BUT N-O-T THE similaRLY PRO-QAEDA AQAP/AQIY???

I'm interpreting this Artic to mean that despite any Diplomatic, MSM rhetoric to the contrary, THAT ONCE AGAIN NO ONE REALLY WANTS BABY ASSAD + REGIME TO LOSE OR LEAVE VEE THE RADICALIST-ISLAMIST ALTERNATIVE.

Not the Saudis, not the Israelis, not Iran or the Turks, not the Russians or Chinese, not even the US-NATO ...

SAVE FOR THE BAMMER ADMIN + HOMELAND-HAPPY KURDS, wid the Kurds being trusted more than the Bammer!

GAAAWD, ITS A HELLUVA MESS NO MATTER WHOSE SIDE(S) ONE IS ON - THE WORLD WILL BE LUCKY IFF NO MUSHROOM CLOUDS FORM FROM THIS SITUATION.
