Rise to Power
During World War I, the British government established diplomatic relations with Ibn Saud. The British agent, Captain William Shakespear, was well received by the Bedouin. Similar diplomatic missions were established with any Arabian power who might have been able to unify and stabilize the region. The British entered into a treaty in December 1915 (the "Treaty of Darin") which made the lands of the House of Saud a British protectorate and attempted to define the boundaries of the developing Saudi state.
 In exchange, Ibn Saud pledged to again make war against Ibn Rashid, who was an ally of the Ottomans.
The British Foreign Office had previously begun to support Sharif Hussein bin Ali, Emir of the Hejaz by seconding Lawrence of Arabia to him in 1915. The Saudi Ikhwan began to conflict with Emir Feisal also in 1917 just as his sons Abdullah and Feisal entered Damascus. The Treaty of Darin remained in effect until superseded by the Jeddah conference of 1927 and the Dammam conference of 1952 during both of which Abdul Aziz Ibn Saud extended his boundaries past the Anglo-Ottoman Blue Line. After Darin, he stockpiled the weapons and supplies with which the British provided him, including a 'tribute' of £5,000 per month. After World War One he received further support from the British, including a glut of surplus munitions. He launched his campaign against the Al Rashidi in 1920; by 1922 they had been all but destroyed.
I am wondering about Usama Bin Laden.
Is he not, the greatest and most effective force to ever attack the USA? How does the DoD live with their shame, especially the Air Force?
How can the Air Force stem their bloody nose given to them by this supposed "warrior" who hides in a cave?
Or perhaps the bloody nose of 9/11, produces some greater effect, like the Patriot Act, and B. Sotero's recent EO empowering HomeSec into the White House?
Perhaps 9/11 was extremely profitable not just for house of Saud, but for some other houses, based in Germany, or based in worship of Death, and Skulls and Bones?
Perhaps, yes. But I personally do not see Osama as being a warrior, he is just a tool, but to accomplish what?
Good years upcoming, feel free to add truth to this lightning bolt of a thread on ye Internetes, rest assured, the world is watching if they've not been banned from GLP that is. ;)
