BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:55 A.M.) – During his three week long visit in the United States (U.S.), the Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman sat down for an interview with Time Magazine in order to discuss several topics around the globe.

In particular, Time Magazine questioned the Saudi Crown Prince about Syria and the country’s future.

The Crown Prince told his interviewer that he believes the U.S. troops should remain in Syria for the mid-term, if not the long-term.

“We believe American troops should stay for at least the mid-term, if not the long-term,” MBS told Time Magazine.

MBS would then add that Assad will remain in power, but will likely limit Iran’s role inside Syria because it is in his best interests.

“Bashar is staying,” he said. “But I believe that Bashar’s interests is not to let the Iranians do whatever they want they want to do.”

MBS’ statements on Assad’s future is vastly different than the comments made by the Saudi Foreign Minister ‘Adel Jubeir.

Jubeir has repeatedly called for Assad’s removal and vowed to increase efforts to remove the Syrian President.

Oh right, one of the World’s chief terrorists has spoken and “honest guv”, everything he states I believe.

I have a dreadful feeling that there will be an upshift in illegal wars shortly with Iran being in the cross hairs; The guy wearing a tea towel infers it himself when you read “MBS would then add that Assad will remain in power, but will likely limit Iran’s role inside Syria because it is in his best interests.” whilst full of scepticism as I did……both a veiled threat and a 30 silver coin temptation.

Habla el heredero de la Monarquía donde no existe democracia, habla el genocida del pueblo de Yemen, habla porque sus terroristas han perdido en Ghouta.

The moron has no bright future.
He got 300 new enemies in SA last November.
I wait for the pictures from Rhiad square, where his head rolls down the walkway.

MbS has observed the workings of the “Assad curse” and wants not to be affected.
