[quote:Anonymous Coward 23406708:MV8yMDUwMzA4XzM0NTY0MTM5X0E0MEVCNDcy] [quote:Biochemky:MV8yMDUwMzA4XzM0NTU5NzYwXzExRTIyNjJD] The U.S. is now involved in the mess in Jordan. There are now U.S. troops on the ground in Jordan who are tasked with protecting the Jordanian Royal Family. http://www.wnd.com/2012/11/muslim-brotherhood-now-targeting-jordan/ http://www.godlikeproductions.com/forum1/message2055318/pg1 Interestingly, there are many connectins between members of the Jordanian Royal Family and the West. For instance, the mother of King Abdullah II bin Al-Hussein of Jordan is British-born Princess Muna al-Hussein wh was born Antoinette Avril Gardiner. Also, King Abdullah II's wife, Queen Rania of Jordan, is American-born Lisa Halaby. The King himself was educated at prep schools in Massachusetts, completed his undergraduate degree at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., and completed a graduate degree at Oxford University in England. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abdullah_II_of_Jordan I imagine the King's mother being British-born, the Queen being born an American, and the King having been educated in the U.S. and England have all had an effect on Jordan's political stance toward the West. These multiple and significant connections to the West on the part of the Jordanian Royal Family have also undoubtedly impacted the willingness of U.S. (NATO?) forces to offer military protection to the Jordanian Royal Family. :bump: [/quote] One minor correction - Queen Noor (the former Lisa Halaby) is the current King's step mother.. She was married to King Hussein (Abdullah's father)... Queen Rania is of Palestinian descent. Her family lived in Kuwait until the 1st Gulf War. After the US returned Kuwait to the al-Sabah family (current Emirs) all Palestinians who lived in Kuwait were ejected for allegedly siding w/ Saddam Hussein. [/quote]

Protests break out in Jordan, mention king by name
As of this writing, protesters are amassing in Amman, the capital, in a demonstration that was initially sparked by cuts to fuel subsidies but have come to more directly address the country’s governing system, including King Abdullah himself.
Local media report protests in several other Jordanian cities. Demonstrations in the country’s south have “become commonplace over the past year,” George Washington University Professor Marc Lynch said, pointing to this article on “tribal dissent” in the kingdom.
