Reader comment on item: Might the Saudis Blow Up Their Oil Infrastructure?

Submitted by Asim Ahmed (United Kingdom), May 12, 2005 at 08:59

So the Saudis are more clever then people gave them credit for?? The only reason they are still in power is their control on world oil prices. And if for some reason someone were to attack that country under the false pretence that they have WMD etc,. at least they have a switch which allows them to render their oil unusable to the aggressor nation. It's a brilliant idea, one which will keep them in power. You have to love the Saudis.
