Of course they would. The leaders of these Arab nations are the least of our problems. It's their people that they have no control over that is the problem.

That's right. A frustrated Saudi student wrote this piece, called "Slaughtering Our Honor".

I really feel for all of the good people in these countries.

Thanks Wanderer. It's cool to see a Saudi with a sense of humor. They're not known for that. One thing Sultana complains about in the "Princess Trilogy" is that Saudis take themselves too seriously. Indeed.

Sheikh Zayed also sent a cable to Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Fahd for the “great accomplishment achieved by the Saudi security forces” against terrorist groups in the Kingdom recently.

Yep. It smells like a combination of oil and money, which are the only reasons we're putting up with the bullshit in the first place.

You can read some unedit statements about the beheaddings here - a forum within a forum, spacey.

I was reading that forum. It is unsettling to say the least.
