The Saudis

Reader comment on item: Pouring Cold Water on WikiLeaks

To me the fear the Saudis have makes a lot of sense. The reasoning for them wanting the Snake's head cut off, would be the same as for why they allowed American soldiers act as their protectors. I think many will agree that it has more to do with the royal family's fear of being thrown over by fanatic islamists. I can not quite follow why you believe it would all be just a farce!
