    Default Saudi Arabia provides the bulk of so-called Al Qaeda in iraq

    BAGHDAD ? Saudi Arabia and Libya, both considered allies by the United States in its fight against terrorism, were the source of about 60 percent of the foreign fighters who came to Iraq in the past year to serve as suicide bombers or to facilitate other attacks, according to senior American military officials.

    The royal family is a powerful ally towards creating ultimately democratic, free countries in the middle east. The enemy of my enemy is my friend.

    I am sure outside of the royal family Saudi Arabia sees us as a means to an end which at the end of the day is a powerful international ally.

    The Royal family is also a powerful ally of the donors that give money to terrorists. How else can all the insurgents get funded?

    I agree with Big on this one. No reason to be friends w/Saudis.

    The reason of course is oil but if so it makes America sound very hypocritical.

    Do you think the Saud royal family wants democracy? Saudi Arabia is possibly the most limited country when it comes to personal freedom.
