Six Saudi troops killed in suicide bombing on Saudi-Iraqi border 
DEBKAfile December 12, 2015, 1:32 PM (IDT)

A suicide bomber Saturday killed six Saudi guards, including a lieutenant colonel, by detonating a bomb-rigged military truck on the Saudi Hafr Zawiyah border post HQ in the Anbar province between Saudi Arabia and Iraq. Another 14 guards were wounded. The bomber was dressed in military uniform with a captain’s insignia. DEBKAfile: This was the first direct ISIS attack on a Saudi military post on the border with Iraq

 Dutch Josh: Of course this would give the Gulf States the excuse to invade Iraq. According to RT the 6 troops killed were Iraqi :

Base commander & 5 more killed in suicide attack on Iraqi border post

Six Iraqi border guards were killed and 14 more injured in a suicide car bomb attack on an Iraqi post in the country’s western Anbar province near the border with Saudi Arabia, AFP reports. The Iraqi base commander, Lieutenant Colonel Hussein al-Goli, is among the dead, AFP added citing Iraqi military officials.

A suicide bomber on an explosives-rigged vehicle rammed into a checkpoint near the border security’s headquarters in the town of al-Nukhayb, 100 kilometers from the border with Saudi Arabia. No organization has claimed responsibility for the attack so far.

One has to read between the lines in this “threatening Russian forces…must be immediately destroyed” statement. Putin is sending a message to those countries that have Special Ops teams in Syria trying to kill or kidnap Russian advisors and troops, that there will be no “after the fact” discussions about the matter.

He is ordering his forces to kill them on the spot or even in the planning stage, or really…for being in Syria to kill Russian forces. Such threats are never made directly.

To all the Blackwater type contractors that we know are in Syria, this means that Russian Spetsnaz will be hunting them down pre-emptively, and with all the modern high-tech tools available to assist them, which of course they have a perfect right to do,

Usually even serving US Special ops people would be out of uniform for such work, which can make for some unfortunate incidents. Certainly some have already been killed in the over 4000 bombing sorties by the Russian anti-terror effort. For those killed some cover story has to be given to their families, as they would never be told they were killed in an anti-terrorism operation…for being terrorists.

Welcome to the nasty world we live it. But that said, there is no shortage of people, active duty or veteran contractors willing to do this kind of work, not only for the money but for polishing up their resumes for “independent work”.

While there has been a lot of coverage on the threat that returning jihadis can bring to their home countries, there is no discussion of the flip side of that coin…Western, and usually Anglo special ops people… Jim W. Dean ]
