There's a tendency for us to find this humorous.  I think there's another side to it though.  While we do get perterbed with the Saudis, the truth is that nation could be much worse.

It's people are by and large a large body of whacked out Islamic adherents, whose real feelings against the U. S. are largely tamed by their government.  I know many of you can give good examples where that didn't happen.  I'm not going to deny that.  Unfortunately, in life, bad things can and do get worse.  The Shah of Iran wasn't perfect.  A lot of folks wanted him gone.  Mubarak was far from perfect.  Now look at things.  Even the somewhat mellowed out Khadaffy was replaced by a network that may yet wind up making the Middle-East much worse than it has been over the last thirty years.

We shouldn't take much glee from anything that might upset the balance of power in Saudi Arabia.  If it were to go, Jordan and other friendly nations with the West might follow.

I understand what you are saying, but Saudi Arabia is already lost to genetics. The elephant in the islamic sitting room is inbreeding.

I wasn't happy about the shift in Libya or Egypt, and frankly, figured Duh-1 had weighed in on the wrong side. Better the devil you know, and as is proving out, there are far worse over there. At least the old regimes were fairly predictable and stable.
