Saudi Brigadier General Ahmed al-Assiri, official spokesman for the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen, has made an interesting statement about Riyadh’s readiness to send ground troops to Syria. This raises a lot of questions. Does this mark a change in the Saudi foreign policy? Should we fight inside a foreign land? Why should we fight with the U.S.-led coalition? If there is a will to intervene, why don’t we fight the far more brutal al-Assad regime?
