Saudi Arabia is reportedly amassing a force of 150,000 troops for a potential military intervention in Syria. This comes in the wake of a Syrian military offensive backed by Russia which is on the eve of an attack on Aleppo that could deal the rebels a crippling blow.
Thoughts?

Probably want to curtail the influence of the Assad/Russia/Iran camp.
