Editor’s Note: Here we see a clear return to 19th and 20th century power-politics, with conditions similar to those which led to the first and second World Wars. Now, with two potential wars in the works and no actual diplomacy to conduct for the US Secretary of State, war monger Hillary Clinton gets busy dispensing her duties as GCC Regional Sales Manager for arms contractors Lockheed Martin Northrup Grumman, Raytheon and General Electric – and with the hype surrounding Iran making Arabs nervous and pushing OPEC revenues sky high – she’s definately exceeding all of her sales targets this quarter. If she continues to win the contracts for US companies, who knows – she may be in line for a promotion.
Clinton meets with Gulf nations over missile defense
March 31, 2012
RIYADH, Saudi Arabia —The Obama administration is moving to strengthen its ties with Persian Gulf nations whose geography and oil resources have already made them key players in U.S. defense and energy security.
Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton on Saturday will inaugurate a strategic dialogue with the six-nation Gulf Cooperation Council that the administration expects will ultimately lead to a coordinated, U.S-supplied regional missile defense system and increased stability in international oil markets.
Clinton arrived here Friday for initial meetings with King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia, the GCC’s most powerful member and closest U.S. partner. The other members are Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Bahrain and Oman.
Proposed by the administration last fall as a regular gathering, the first U.S.-GCC Strategic Cooperation Forum comes as the organization has become an increasingly powerful player in the turmoil that has shaken the Arab world over the past year.
