Nothing like sending out a "form letter" to announce a war. [:)]

[b]The Saudi ruling family wants no democracy whether pro-west or not. The royal family simply desires to remain in power. (And they would fight to the last American to retain power !)[/b]

I think right now they are sending out the al-Qaida to do their dirty work. I think the Saudi's have always sponsord terrorists, I don't think they initiated it, but I think they are the main supporters of international terrorism. Sneaky dirty Arabs!

The Saudi ruling family is faced with either exporting terror (people/money) or having the terorists at home. They've chosen the export route. And prior to 9/11 we knew it and looked the other way. Worse, since 9/11, we've allowed the Saudis, Syrians, Egyptians, etc., to use the Palestinian issue as a smoke screen. Both Arabia and Turkey are strategic to US interest in the middle east. The bitter truth is the U.S. does not want the ruling family out any more than the ruling family wants to be out. Suxx but there it is.
