Abdullah Takes Aim

Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah has loosed an arrow at The Decider and his administration's adventures in the Middle East.... "Saudis Publicly Get Tough With U.S."

In a speech Wednesday before a summit of the Arab League, Abdullah targeted the "illegitimate foreign occupation" of Iraq by the U.S. and called for a lifting of the "unjust embargo imposed on the people of Palestine" that has been led by the Bush administration.

And, Saudi officials have labeled Secretary of State Rice's proposed coalition of "moderate" Arab states to counter "extremists" as silly.

Abdullah with this break with the White House is saying out loud, The Decider and Rice the Unready don't know what they are doing.... smashing their way through the international china shop in their pursuit of some power-grabbing agenda.

The American occupation of Iraq has fostered the rise of Iran and upset the traditional Sunni-Shiite balance in the region. The Saudis are worried about Iran.

Abdullah and the Arab League want an end to our occupation of Iraq. The majority Democratic Congress and citizens of the United States want an end to the occupation.

An arrogant Bush will have none of it. To our continuing great cost.

The shaft of the arrow had been feathered with one of the eagle's own plumes We often give our enemies the means of our own destruction.
Aesop (620BC - 560BC)
