Dealing with the root of the problem:Saudi Arabia

I think it is high time that Saudi Arabia as the number one source of violence in the world in the name of Allah be dealt with. I think an invasion of Saudi Arabia is the best answer. This should be followed by not allowing anybody to visit the country for Haj as this would welcome in potential terrorists. The US and Isreal should hold on to Saudi Arabia and use it as a bargaining piece in order for it to be returned. Since there are already troops in Saudi Arabia from the USA this is actually not that hard to do. Once the violence in the name of Allah stops and Muslims learn civilised values then and only then should Saudi Arabia be free. This seems a tough solution but desperate time call for radical and determined action. Many pro-isreal sites on the web already are thinking this way so what I say is not in fact new. The only thing lacking at the moment is the will to do it. The next administration in the USA should tackle this issue. Beside the Bush and Bin Ladin families have been friends in the past through Business and the Saudi Ambassador to the USA is also a big buddy of Bush Junior. So it will be up to a president without these ties and of a very very determined nature to impose the only solution that works: take over the holy sites of Islam.
