The Saudis are in a tight spot. Since 1991, the average person in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and elsewhere among our Gulf allies know we're their friends. Yes, we back those Zionists over in "Palestine" to the hilt, but the Israelis have long been friendly to the United States, and it's not THEIR fault Arafat is a terrorist.
Furthermore, the United States did bail them out of a nasty situation, and they do feel at the very least, a strong debt to us. We've never wanted their territory, all our guys did was kick a creep who had attacked his brother Arabs back into his cage. We even showed restraint that may have contributed to 9/11 at the behest of the Saudis.
Woolsey is right, the Saudis are going to back us. It is out of a sense of obligation, due to the fact we came to their aid in 1990/1991 and possibly due to the fact that we held back from removing Saddam from power at their request. After this war, I have no idea how things will go, but they will back us 100%.

The thousands of dead on 9/11 they make a better argument against their Saudi murderers than any of you "zionist hating" crapola. That place is a festering ground for hatred of you and your children. But ninny that you be, so wrapped up in your own biases, you ignore your neighbors blood crying out -- love of hate.
