The Saudi Axis is militarily weak. They hide behind Israeli and US power.
And even that didn’t stop the Saudi Axis from losing Yemen to a ragtag band of Houthi rebels.
As for Israel, they have to rely on a cozy but far from certain relationship with Assad’s protector, Putin. He’s been cooperative in maintaining the current power balance which absolutely tilts toward Israel. But is Vladdie someone you’d count on no matter what?
Israel can not prevail area. Their Saudi allies are hopelessly corrupt. Iran, Syria and Iraq along with Turkey which now drifting out of the Western sphere of influence have too great a population and territory to control and the only realistic option from a military standpoint is going Nuclear which would bring the world along with it.
It high time they learned to get along and it high time the Zionists abandoned the concept of a Greater Israel reconstituted in the Middle East and based on a fairy tale out of a work of fiction.
The Saudis fail to recognize the fact that they are being used by Israel to defeat Iran (Sheaism). However not aware that once Iran is out of the way they’ll be next.
