Private translation | June 29 | Al Masirah Net: An American expert considered the arrival of Mohammed bin Salman to the position of crown prince after his father’s coup against Prince Muhammad bin Naif and his proximity to the position of king in Saudi Arabia as an indication of the imminent outbreak of the war between Saudi Arabia and Iran, and he also expected that bin Salman will reach the tensions in the Middle East to what He called it the boiling point.
Jake Novak, a senior columnist for CNBC, wrote in his analytical article, “Now bin Salman will in fact be the next king. His rise to this level means the actual winds of war and not just the proxy wars that are raging between Saudi Arabia and Iran in more than one place in the world. Region”.
“It is still not clear what that war will look like and when it will spread. The Saudis do not have enough forces to fight Iran alone, so its allies like Egypt might get involved and then there is the issue of Israeli aid that is more likely today.”
Novak added in his analysis by saying, “But serious preparations are now clearer than ever. Saudi Arabia is making itself more open and exposed than the Iranians who are more secretive and isolated. But many reports indicate that billions of dollars have been freed from the nuclear agreement.” In the interest of Iran, most of it has been spent on strengthening Tehran’s military might.
“The other major result of this is that we can expect oil prices to remain under pressure because both sides need to bring in money to strengthen the war chess. This is not the time to keep a piece of the real commodity off the global market.”
He explained, “Despite some assurances that this inventive step will not change (OPEC) ability to impose these agreements in cutting production, he is not betting on that. Rather, the supply will be high, at least until the hostilities begin.
“But when these direct military conflicts start between the Saudis and the Iranians, things will move quickly, and prices will jump. Anything that stands in the way of peaceful crude oil production and delivery in the Persian Gulf region will lead to a real reduction in supply that will not depend on the compliance of any government,” Novak emphasized. “.
The writer also considered that the war between Saudi Arabia and Iran would be in America’s interest, explaining that “such developments could be positive for oil production in the United States, which could lead to a vacuum.”
The writer had begun his article by talking about the personality of bin Salman and comparing him to his predecessors of the crown princes, where he said that he is less known and that he is one of the leading hawks against Iran. And that for more than two years he has led the war on Yemen and is the one who took the lead in the withdrawal of Qatar, led by Saudi Arabia, over its perceived relations with Tehran.
He also asserted that bin Salman is the main player in the Kingdom’s amazing and growing cooperation with Israel.
