Tchya, like we'd have the balls to pull something like that. Not that it's a bad idea, and I bet all the other muslims would come down with a case of schadenfreude if we did, but the Bush family is as tight with the Saudi elite as an American kufar can get. They look out for Saudi interests as much as the American oil and defense industries'.

Putin warned us about singling out Iran, etc. when the viper's nest was in Saudi.
A briefing given last month to a top Pentagon advisory board described Saudi Arabia as an enemy of the United States, and recommended that U.S. officials give it an ultimatum to stop backing terrorism or face seizure of its oil fields and its financial assets invested in the United States. "The Saudis are active at every level of the terror chain, from planners to financiers, from cadre to foot-soldier, from ideologist to cheerleader," stated the explosive briefing. It was presented on July 10 to the Defense Policy Board, a group of prominent intellectuals and former senior officials that advises the Pentagon on defense policy. "Saudi Arabia supports our enemies and attacks our allies," said the briefing prepared by Laurent Murawiec, a Rand Corp. analyst. A talking point attached to the last of 24 briefing slides went even further, describing Saudi Arabia as "the kernel of evil, the prime mover, the most dangerous opponent" in the Middle East.

Okay, who didn't see this one coming... Edited to add... Thanks for the link to that story. I just read pretty much the same thing elsewhere. I'm sure the PR machine is gearing up to paint Saudi as it really is [for a change] since they pledged Saddam they would back him if the United States invaded. Only after the 'news' starts painting all of Iraqs supporters as enemies will I believe an attack is actually immanent. Looks like it finally starting to happen.
