“Two things are crystal clear. First, [Mohammed bin Salman] is willing to risk everything in order to fight a war of regional dominance against Iran. Second, Trump also wants a fight with Iran and is willing to use the exact same Iraq playbook as George W. Bush to get it started. I wrote a three part series on the topic earlier this year, which you can find here. If we assume that’s right, Lebanon appears the place MBS wants to get this fight going next, but it’s unlikely to end there. He’ll carry on with his lunacy until he’s either deposed, or suffers monumental and terminal losses. I don’t think there’ll be much of a coalition of the willing in this battle either. It’s likely to be the U.S., a crazy Saudi princeling and possibly Israel against the rest of the world.” (11/08/17)
