At least as they tried to put the fire out we didn't hear the stock, "No one could have foreseen this" that seems to be repeated all too often.

Wonder how they do with levees?

One of the side consequesnces of the war on terror. By exerting pressure on our arab "allies" in the region to crack down on their home grown terrorists, we turn them against each other. More attacks internally in SA leads to more of a crackdown which leads to more attacks, etc.

They'll "crack down" and whack a few meaningless low level drones but that's it.

The house of Saud has dirty hands.

I think it is only a matter of time before Saudi either

A) backs off their support of us in stopping attacks

or

B) Falls into full blown civil war over this stuff

I dont see it happening any other way

output at the facility, which handles about two-thirds of the country's oil production, was unaffected by the attack.
...
On news of the attack, the price of crude oil for April delivery leapt as much as 3.4% to $62.60

Very interesting.

As Daniel Pipes says, quite often, 'the answer to Radical Islam...is Moderate Islam.'

Let's see if that's true.
