Read Nick Denton on the Saudis as the enemies of America.

Myself I'm puzzled and a bit discouraged by the American government's plans to attack Iraq - it seems to me that this is a continuation of pre-Sept 11 geopoliticking. If they are serious about the war on terrorism and "making no distinction between terrorists and the states that shelter them" then they should be going after the Saudis. Let the old alliances die with the old priorities - it's a different world now.
