Historically reviewing the ancient antipathies of why the KSA does not act as any would expect is enconsed in their desires of self protection, from all sectors. Dr Pipes has made this/these assertion(s) evident in times past and reiteration at this juncture is potentially preemptive to what may be seen as adding fuel to a fire that needs no more aggravation than already displayed. It is a replay of 1973 to 1978 all over again.
