[url]news.independent.co.uk/world/americas/story.jsp?story=288981[/url] What will they do if Bush does not accept their position on this "last chance?" Perhaps they are only bluffing, but if that is not the case, what will "the arabs future steps" be? Frankly, I know some of you disagree, but I'd be happy for us to just get the fuck out of their sandbox... after we take care of some unfinished business.

[red]The Saudis have publicly dismissed Mr Sharon's proposal for a peace conference under US auspices as "absurd". Instead, Riyadh wants Mr Bush not just to rein back the Israelis but to impose a settlement. It points to Crown Prince Abdullah's plan as the way out of the crisis.[/red] Rein in?? Who do they mean?? the Saudis needed to "rein in" osama bin laden, they did not. The Saudis need to "rein in" the Palestinean suicide bombings, they have not. The Saudis needed to "rein in" 15/19 9/11 killers, that were Saudi citizens, again they failed. Why is it when saddam hussien needs to be "reined in" the US of A was the country that "stepped up". It wasn't the Saudis, the day Kuwait was invaded most Saudi Air Force pilots actually called in sick. If someone needs "reining in" perhaps it is the Saudis. Maybe they will be able to handle that job themselves.

Where is McViegh now? Where is Nichols? When has the US openly or tacitly supported terrorist atacks on other nations? If we had a citizen killing Canadians in Canada return to the United States would we turn him over to the Canadians or tell Canada to pound sand?? If there was an American in Southeast Asia killing hundreds or people every year, financed by his families money, that came from the USA, do you think the US would sit by and let all the money transfers happen?? There are pictures of bin laden through out the middle east, he is revered as a hero. I have siginifgant doubts that very many people tried, in the Arab "world" to "rein in" bin laden, before or after the 9/11 coward attack.

If they did you can be sure it was because the royal family felt threatened by him. They have a long history of murdering/torturing those they consider a threat to the regime. Please do not suggest that it was for our benefit. God knows how many of our soldiers have been killed on their soil with little consequence. Oly is right, if not in deed then in spirit. The Saudis had many opportunities to nab bin Laden on his trips back, but considered him (paraphrasing Prince Bandar) to be a man of little consequence, a buffoon. In this reticense (blindness?) to accept certain things, they purport themselves no differently than they handled the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in its entirety for the past fifty-five years: Denying Israel even exists or is someone to speak to (now of course a NYT columnist floats an idea and they are all of a sudden engaged...).

They created the environment for these (just as mistakes by our government influenced McVeigh) hardcore wahabi anti-western Islamaniacs (which they push overseas, their special brand of Islam, the "original and true form") who attacked us on 9-11. Encouraging the homicide bombers with offers of financial (both governmental and private raised via "telethons" and such) support is hardly "reigning them in." Meanwhile Bush has asked them to stop, which they have not, instead insisting we issue ultimatums to Israel to pull out of the West Bank. In Saudi Arabia the educational system emphasizes certain beliefs and prejudices that would not be acceptable in the United States. The same holds true with their media. You will often hear the most vile hatespeech being broadcast hither and yon with full government approval. This is a medieval fiefdom (in ethos and outlook as well) and modern in material trappings only.

Sorry, I'm just a pencil-necked geek![:D] Actually, I'm a fat slob, as can be seen from the numerous photos I have posted here on this Board. There are several sources for the Marfan Syndrome connection with Bin Laden. Here's the first one that I had tagged back in November: [size=4]Does bin Laden have Marfan Syndrome?[/size=4] [b]Is Osama suffering from a rare disease that can cause sudden death?[/b] By Mark Francis Cohen Nov. 9, 2001 | If what some medical experts say is true, it may not require a military strike to kill Osama bin Laden. For several years now, reports have been circulating that claim the 45-year-old is quite ill, sees doctors regularly and may have a heart problem. The evidence is sketchy, but some see signs that bin Laden could die suddenly. Marfan syndrome is a potentially fatal disorder of connective tissue, and some believe it's jeopardizing the life of al-Qaida's elusive leader. Bin Laden would be in good company: Some say Marfan would have killed Abraham Lincoln if John Wilkes Booth had missed his mark in 1865. It also appears to have claimed the lives of Jonathan Larson, author of the musical "Rent," who died on the eve of the production's 1996 Broadway debut; Chris Patton, a University of Maryland basketball star who died during a pickup game; and Flo Hyman, an Olympic volleyball player who died at 31 in 1986. The aortas of all three ripped in a manner consistent with the disorder. Charles de Gaulle and composer Sergei Rachmaninoff are also believed to have had Marfan. Although Marfan syndrome, like sickle cell anemia, is often the product of an inherited genetic mutation, determining whether someone has the disease is tricky. Experts say one in 10,000 people have it, but that thousands are unaware that they are affected. The National Marfan Foundation estimates that more than 200,000 people in the United States have Marfan syndrome or a related connective tissue disorder. "It's a very complicated diagnosis to establish," says Dr. Hal Dietz, a geneticist at Johns Hopkins University, who led the team that discovered the mutant gene responsible for Marfan. "There is no DNA test that can absolutely confirm whether someone has it." Because there's no screening process or dead giveaway that a person has the disease, a Marfan diagnosis is an intricate process of elimination that almost always begins by sizing up someone's physical features. Marfan sufferers typically have an unusual outward appearance, often called Marfanoid. More often than not, the disease strikes very tall people. [b]They tend to be lean and lanky, with long, spidery fingers, curved spines, scant muscle, crooked chests and elongated faces and heads.[/b] See remainder of article at:[url]http://www.salon.com/people/feature/2001/11/09/marfan/?x[/url]

If they stop selling us oil, their regime will fall. There's no one else like us to sell it to. We, on the other hand, will not fall. (Our economy will dip, though) Eventually, we'd find a new supplier. By the time the Saudis found enough customers to replace us, they'd be known as the Islamic Republic of Arabia.

Not that I'm taking sides on this issue, but a google search of "bin Laden Saudi poison" yielded: [url]http://www.forbes.com/2001/10/15/obinladen.html[/url] It claims: "Aside from the current military action that is targeting him, and the cruise missile attack that then-President Bill Clinton ordered in 1998, Saudi intelligence is said to have tried to poison him once in late 1998. Soon after, press reports emerging from the country suggested bin Laden was seriously ill and may have even suffered kidney failure, possibly as a result of the poison, though he has since recovered, some say with treatment from an Iraqi doctor who traveled to one of his secret hideouts." But it's stated fairly matter-of-factly, and with little in the way of detail. A further google search couldn't yield any major sources (MSNBC, CNN, etc). So that's all I could find about that... MSNBC claims "How is his health? A few months ago, there were reports he was terminally ill. What became of those reports? A senior counter-terrorism official said the latest CIA analysis is that he is “a hypochondriac ... but then he has chosen a stressful lifestyle and that can manifest itself in strange ways ...”" [url] http://www.msnbc.com/news/627355.asp?cp1=1[/url] So there's a couple perspectives.
