Jordan Pays the Price for Egypt’s Troubles

    This saddens me because unlike other ME rulers, King Abdallah II has been trying to slowly liberalize and westernize Jordan. They still have issues but in the ME have been by far the most tolerant. A while back I read an interview where Abdallah basically states that he doesn’t want his son to rule and hopes to have a more working and non-corrupt parliament system in place by the time he abdicates the throne.

    Jordan does have shale oil deposits, which I assume they would love to develop.
    I guess I am the only reader here at TAI who sees that most of what Sec Kerry has been doing is in support of Jordan, including Kerry’s ‘obsession’ with getting the West Bank palestinians to talk to the Israelis.
