Common Sense in Saudi Arabia and Egypt----Americans fighting their wars

Reader comment on item: Some Common Sense in Egypt and Saudi Arabia

Submitted by Michael (United States), Dec 24, 2009 at 10:08

I would respectfully suggest that of course the Saudis and Egyptians would be happy to let Americans and Israelis die while attacking Iran to protect Saudi Arabia and Egypt from Iranian expansionism. However, when the dust settles the Saudis and Egyptians will be out in the streets rioting and protesting against the Zionist and American "crusaders" for attacking a peaceful Muslim country. Alas, history repeats itself. The Saudis are delighted to have us protect them and fight their wars while having their state controlled Mosques condemn us and send terrorists to kill us. To our shame we do this because we need their oil. We have indeed sold our soul to the devil.
