What about the Saudi Arabia connection?

Reader comment on item: In the MidEast, Bush Dared to Be Different

Submitted by David Harari (France), Oct 25, 2004 at 16:50

Dear Mr. Pipes,

I tend to agree with much you write about the war on terror and the mideast conflict.

However, the connections of the Bush Family with the Saudi rulers, and also the influence of the oil interests on US policy, on the lack of energy conservation policies, of pandering to large oil companies make me very doubtful of George W. Bush resolve regarding his war on terror...His has been a war against Iraq and a job half done in Afghanistan...not very successful for the most powerful nation on earth and the one with the most sophisticated technologies and the most resources.

We do not know if Senator Kerry will make a better President than President George W. Bush, and history will tell if he gets an opportunity to be the next President.

For the time being the US invasion of Irak has been a succession of ill prepared plans, of ill conceived actions and of letting anarchy spreading in that country...without any one in the current Administration being held accountable for this poorly executed war and too many deaths that could have been prevented with better planning and better understanding of the Arab psychology and the complexities of Iraqui society.

But keep writing your commentary, since you are one of the most forceful voices in the US press that keeps the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in focus and reminds us all of what and who hides behind the Palestinian terror attacks and who is responsible for stoking the fires among the Palestinians whose fate has worsened steadily over the past few years because of their own leaders' policies and their disregard for human lives, of Israelis and of their own people.
