#1 But I thought Turkey loved doing business with the Magic Kingdom and according to this article "The Magic Kingdom" strongly supports the coup.

Saudi Arabia and the UAE threw their weight and purses behind Egypt’s generals aiming to put their first big spoke in the US-sponsored Arab Revolt (or Spring), after they failed to hold the tide back in Libya, Egypt and thus far Syria.

The coup leader, Defense Minister and army chief Gen. Abdel Fattah El-Sisi, had two more Saudi-Gulf commitments in his pocket:
1. Should the Obama administration cut off the annual US aid allocation of $1.3 billion, Saudi Arabia and the UAE would make up the military budget’s shortfall;
2. The Saudis, UAE and other Gulf nations, such as Bahrain and Kuwait, would immediately start pumping out substantial funds to keep the Egyptian economy running. The Egyptian masses would be shown that in a properly managed economy, they could be guaranteed a minimal standard of living and need not go hungry as many did under Muslim Brotherhood rule.

According to sources, the Saudis and the UAE pledged to match the funds Qatar transferred to the Muslim Brotherhood’s coffers in Cairo in the past year, amounting to $13 billion.

#2 I can see why the whole idea makes Erdogan nervous. After all, the military was the only thing that kept Turkey from turning into... well, Turkey.

#3 13 billion, the Arab way. The Obama way. A select few make the big bucks. I have no doubt Erdie and Obama will continue to muck up the works. I am convinced the Saudi are on borrowed time as well.
How Jordon has avoided issues I don't understand.

#4 For Erdogan, Morsi's ouster is a setback for the Islamist project. However, there isn't anything he can do and besides that Turkey gets aid indirectly from the Saudis because the Saudis buy up the Turkish debt instruments.

As for Jordan, the security services are well equipped, well trained and well staffed by Christians, Hashemites and Bedouins who have their own reasons to fear Islamism.

There's a reason it's call Black September.

The anti-West Judases talk up the taint of the Crusade but never mention Tamerlane who made the body count and wanton destruction among his fellow Muslims really horrific. The Crusaders were bush league in comparison.

#6 Erdogan and Obama better take notice. Just because you win the election, you do not have a free hand to do whatever you want. Even monkeys know when they are cheated. Nation of laws, not men. The Fraternal Order of Legitimacy be damned.
