#1 I've always said that any Radical Islamist-led destabilization or destruction of Sunni Saudi Arabia + Royals could be more dangerous for the US-NATO/EU, World than fighting the Hard Boyz in AFPAK, as both Nuclear-armed Muslim States, Wannabes, + MilTerrs vie for control of the Islamic Holy Places.

#2 DEFENCE.PK/FORUMS > [Iran Foreign Ministry] SPOKEMAN WARNS UAE TO AVOID ANGERING THE IRANIAN NATION.
Personally, iff I were Prez. Moud or El Supremo the Ayatollah Khameini, I would be more worried about iff Iran BFF Pakistan chose to keep Pak supply land routes into Afghanistan not only closed off to the US-NATO, but now also to cut off Pak AirSpace to US-NATO Air Cargo deliveries into Afghanistan. ITS A US POTUS [Re-]ELECTION YEAR, THE US ECONOMY IS IN BAD SHAPE + IFFY, THE NDN IS TOO $$$ COSTLY, + THE PRO-DIPLOMACY BAMMER IS STILL POINTS AHEAD OF WAR-MONGER ROMNEY BUT THAT CAN EASILY CHANGE.
