Robust ties with #Qatar are part of #Pakistan's overall close strategic relationship with #Gulf/#GCC states. The internal Gulf crisis had little impact on #Islamabad's relations with Gulf states, and there's no juggling act, unlike the common perception. Ties are not zero-sum.
#Qatar's pledge to invest up to $22B in #Pakistan in coming years, on the heels of multibillion-dollar #KSA/#UAE/#Kuwait investments confirms #Gulf is of paramount economic/political/security importance for Pak, and #Islamabad is rightly involved in Gulf security arrangements.

Now a shooting war with #Iran appears to have been avoided, at least for the weekend, it's vital we pause and ask ourselves the basic questions: What's the strategy? Is there even one? How did we get into this mess? And, how do we get out of it?

Time for a #geopolitics thread!
Right, so, here's the bottom line: The US has worked itself into a position whose likely outcomes are (a) war (b) internal regime change or (c) lasting damage to U.S. global leadership. I think we're heading for the latter. But first, I want to back up and review how we got here
For about 30 years, the U.S. & Iran maintained a cold, uncomfortable peace, generally content to hurl no more than invective at each other. Even in #Iraq, where #IRGC-backed militias attacked US forces, the two found their strategic interests aligned more often than not.

#BREAKING #SaudiArabia

In an interview with Asharq al-Awsat, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman:

- The Kingdom does not want war but will not hesitate to deal with any threat.
#MBS:

"We have supported all efforts to reach a political solution to the Yemeni crisis, but unfortunately the Houthi militia is advancing Iran's agenda.

- “We can not accept in the Kingdom the existence of militias outside the state institutions on our borders”.
Prince Mohammed bin Salman:

- The Iranian regime did not respect the presence of the Japanese Prime Minister as a guest in Tehran and during the course of his return he responded to his efforts by attacking two carriers, one of which belongs to Japan.

I watched the entire proceedings of #OICMakkahSummit for about 8 hrs, and live tweeted at @Office_AQPk interesting tidbits & observations. Here's some observations on PM #ImranKhan's speech. /1

#AhmedQuraishi @AQpk
PM #Pakistan #ImranKhan was well received at #OICMakkahSummit. #MBS, King of #Bahrain, Pres of #Iraq, PM #Bangladesh, informally interacted with him. #Saudi hosts opened doors at holy sites for only two leaders this time: President Al-Sisi of #Egypt & PM Khan of Pakistan. /2
PM #ImranKhan speech was among the long ones at #OICMakkahSummit. It was extempore. Many Muslim leaders didn't get to speak due to paucity of time. Immediately after PM's speech, Secretariat asked leaders to keep remarks short. PM's speech was among the well delivered speeches./3

Nothing says "championing key humanitarian issues" quite like sending your personal bone-saw wielding hit squad to assassinate a mild, mild critic at your own goddamn embassy.

#KSA #Pakistan #MbS
I meaaaaan.... I guess "massacring kids and bringing cholera back in Yemen" might also count as "championing humanitarian issues."

If you're Pakistan, I suppose. #MbS #KSA

@Billbrowder @lauferlaw @maddow @ACLU @HRC @amnesty @UNHumanRights @CJR @ICIJorg @OCCRP @guardian @NatashaBertrand The fact #Romania, which holds the #EUpresidency until 1 July, was moving ahead on a national level would lend “symbolic support” to the EU-level action, an EU diplomat said.

So #MBS & Saudis have the technology to hack our phones without a trace, they've targeted activists like us, they control #AMI, parent company of the #Enquirer, and chairman David Pecker brought MBS intermediary Kacy Grine to meet w/Trump/Kushner? Thread👇 thedailybeast.com/jeff-bezos-inv…

This is a call to western artists/singers to #BoycottSaudi b/c of its war crimes in #Yemen & for detinaning women's rights activists. @MariahCarey You should stand up 4 human rights values & not support opression, toture, sexual harassment and rape against women in the Kingdom.
#BoycottSaudi b/c it has demonstrated over &over again its unwillingness to accept human rights/gender equality as the norm. Instead, #MBS misuse international/ financial leverage to block/avoid naming and shaming&pressure other states 2 accept Saudi status quo of opression
#BoycottSaudi My life as a child and a grown-up woman in the city of Jeddah in Saudi Arabia, was ruled by segregation; education is single-sex from nursery through to the whole education system, working places, state offices and banks have “ladies’ branches”,

To explain the origin story of how the #Maleguardianship law came about.
I must first tell the story of #MishaalAlSaud. She was a #Saudi princesses that was executed in 1977 for committing adultery. In sharia law, such crimes must be witnessed by 4 men during the sexual act.
Or if the person confessed in court three times. But when you are royalty the sharia rules don’t apply. #MishaalAlSaud was 19 years old when her father “King Fahad” sent her away to Lebanon for school. She met & fell in love with the #Saudi ambassador’s nephew #KhalidAlMulhallal
Both #MishaalAlSaud and #KhalidAlMulhallal made the mistake of meeting up with each other a couple of times when they came back to #Saudi. Soon enough word got out and they were both in trouble. So #MishaalAlSaud decide to fake her own death by drowning and flee the country.

2. #Q told us Saudi Arabia (SA) was behind HRC and BU5H! The BU5H's surrendered power to the Saud family decades ago in exchange for riches. SA is Huma Abedin's handler, HRC was THEIR candidate. My best SA thread. PLEASE read this before continuing!

3. A lot of you know, I took a special interest in Khashoggi right away. The whole story stunk of fake news. I researched and found a lot of intel on the situation that exposed some major players, and forced a lot of new questions to be asked. That has all paid off!

#TrumpRussia @RepAdamSchiff @olgaNYC1211 A lot of people think @realDonaldTrump is a #Grinch, but just look at all the wonderful presents he gave to his BFF #VladimirPutin
1/When Trump shrugged off brutal murder & dismemberment of WaPo's #JamalKhashoggi and disputed Saudi Crown Prince #MBS's role, #Putin loved it and responded by giving #MBS celebratory high-five.cnn.com/2018/11/20/pol…
2/Similarly, @realDonaldTrump said that even though Russia may have murdered dissidents, journalists, and others critical of #Putin, it wasn't a problem because "it's not in our country." washingtonpost.com/politics/putin…

Peace, blessing and mercy of Allah be upon all of you and upon your beloveds.

1️⃣ What does “Peace” mean?

Peace is a result of common understanding that comes through direct communication, dialog to reach a point to serve interests of different parties.

#ThinkArabian
2️⃣ When there is no peace, this is a fundamental indication of the lack of adequate communication between the parties because of dominant fears and lack of protecting common interests.

#ThinkArabian
3️⃣ Political, ideological parties mostly, tend 2 cast doubt, fear, conflict among people & among nations & stimulate negative emotions & primary instincts.

This aims 2 control & limiting people's ability 2 influence 2 ensure they remain under authority control.

1. Why am I not convinced about #MBS? Because I have a high confidence that in 2016 Russian SVR spotted a small group of Gulenist officers on an encrypted chat program and stepped in to amplify and direct it into a fake coup that wiped out the pro @NATO officer corps in Turkey.
2. So then I asked why should MBS run such a sloppy op? Apple Watch? Really? You buy that? I don't know what happened but I do know that the parties who had motives to remove MBS are happy now. Turkey, Iran, Russia, ISIS and Al-Qaeda.
3. So I implore @TheDemocrats on the SSCI to plug this theory into the @CIA facts you got today.

First, MBS gets a green light from Kushner to do #Khashoggi's rendition. Kushner and Trump believed it was okay because Khashoggi was not a US citizen. Now they know it was a crime.

THREAD: Body Language Analysis No. 4364: Vladimir Putin's & Mohammed bin Salman's High Five at the G20 • #Nonverbal #EmotionalIntelligence #VladimirPutin #MohammedBinSalman #MBS #G20 #BodyLanguage #BodyLanguageExpert #HighFive #BroHandshake #Handshake
1/ Putin has never smiled so sincerely on the world stage. And with continuing details being revealed regarding the torture and murder of Jamal Khashoggi, the Saudi Crown Prince was similarly celebratory.
2/ In a nonverbal amalgam of a High-Five and a Bro handshake, Vladimir Putin and Mohammed bin Salman conducted more than a bit of theater in Buenos Aires on Friday, 30 November 2018. Their actions could easily be substituted for two athletes - jubilant after scoring a goal.

Re-packaged spin since previous media crusade against #MBS failed

Actual news is stories CIA had "high confidence" MBS ordered the killing were false. They only had "medium to high confidence"
& Quote
“We lack direct reporting of the Crown Prince issuing a kill order.”
The messages in question are not even known to be about the operation
They are simply to one of the people now arrested for the killing

But the #WSJ has no knowledge what they were about & we don't know if the CIA does either. We don't even know what kind of messages they are
They also re-use a bit from 2017 claiming #MBS said
“we could possibly lure him outside Saudi Arabia and make arrangements,”

Only later they admit there's no proof this quote came from #MBS
Or that it could be a reference to a standing order to bring dissidents home

US National Security Adviser John Bolton won’t listen to #Khashoggi audio because “What do you think I’ll learn from it?...Unless you speak Arabic, what are you going to get from it?”

What. The. Actual. Fuck.

#KSA #MbS #Saudi
Hi John Bolton - I speak Arabic, and I’m happy to translate the #Khashoggi audio for you, pro-bono — just because of what a 7imar kabir you are!

#MbS #Saudi #KSA
Please, Mr. NSA John Bolton. Allow me to help you investigate the case of #Khashoggi’s alleged assassination by #MbS - accept my offer to translate for free.

It’s my citizen’s duty, as I have a sincere & abiding belief that you are اكبر كلب في العالم فعلا.
