I thought the Saudis were experts at saying one thing and doing another. This could be a case in which they are saying one thing for the Arab public, but not actually doing much along the lines of their public rhetoric.

Notice also that this position still confirms the western narrative that Iran is ultimately pulling the strings -- which may be true as to events of the last week, but ignores the centrality of Israel in launching those events originally.

I have been struck by the irony that the end result of bush's "diplomacy" is to put our fate in the hands of Iran, whom we now have to beg for restraint and preventive intervention. What if Iran doesnt find it in its interest to help us out of the crises we have brought about?

Ya Ustez, Oceana has always been at peace with Eurasia and allied with Eastasia.
