(EDITOR’S NOTE: On the surface, the idea of an Egyptian-GCC military alliance intervening in regional hotspots does possess a certain tinge of jocularity, doesn’t it? The Egyptian military — the sacrifices of its martyred soldiers in several wars with the usurping Zionist entity aside — has never won a war, the Saudi army was smacked around by Yemen’s Houthis five years ago when the Houthis were still what one could consider “ragtag” and the GCC’s Peninsula Shield Force hasn’t done anything on the battlefield except crush unarmed protesters in Bahrain. The idea that any of these armies, whether alone or unified, could somehow pose a threat to the region’s most sophisticated military forces — i.e. Hizbullah, Iran’s various military-intelligence apparatuses, particularly the Quds Force of the IRGC led by legendary Major General Qassem Suleimani, the Syrian Arab Army and its Hizbullah-trained NDF auxillaries and the now far more formidable Houthis — is, again, rather amusing. However, the reason why Mouqawamah Music is not laughing out loud and considers this is an extremely dangerous development is because this proposed Egyptian-GCC regional intervention force ensures that Arab-Muslim-infighting will continue for years to come. This Egyptian-GCC alliance is not on the table because a military victory over any of the aforementioned Resistance powers is in the cards, it is now on the table because the ultimate Zionist goal for the Maghreb and Mashreq is to have as much chaos as possible, all day, everyday, in glorious accordance with Oded Yinon’s “A Strategy For Israel In the 1980s” and what neo-Zionist/new-age Orientalism godfather Bernard Lewis was discussing in the ’70s, for as long as “the Arabs” and “the Muslims” are busy fighting each other, they won’t see the “Israeli” takeover of the region coming, even from a mile away. Arabs and Muslims should be settling disputes politically and diplomatically, not militarily. The only time military force should be used in the Maghreb and Mashreq is against the usurping Jewish entity. This concept seems to be lost on the collaborators in Cairo, Riyadh, Kuwait City and Abu Dhabi though, and it is most shameful, as they’re doing the Jews’ dirty work for them under the mask of “regional leadership” and “initiative”. ~ Jonathan Azaziah)
U.S. Arab allies Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Kuwait are discussing the creation of a military pact against ISIS, with the possibility of a joint force to intervene around the Middle East.
Four Egyptian military officials have confirmed the talks to The Associated Press. They say the alliance would be separate from the U.S.-led air campaign against the ISIS group in Iraq and Syria.
The alliance, they said, could intervene in other extremist hot-spots like Libya, where militants have taken over several cities, and Yemen, where Shiite Houthis have seized control of the capital. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because the talks are secret.
