Oh oh ... things getting out of hand in Saudi Arabia

It shouldn't come as any surprise to see terrorist attacks against Saudi Arabia, given the chummy ties between that kingdom and the Bush administration. I suspect we'll be seeing a lot more of this in the coming days.

There is a certain level of eye-rolling irony in Saudi Crown Prince Abdullah's words, "Your duty is our pride. God will help us to defeat these people," Abdullah told one of the injured. God is apparently a very busy beaver these days, what with helping the Bush administration's war on terror against the Iraqi insurgents, helping the Iraqi insurgents' war against American imperialism, and now helping the Saudis (the fun folks who had a major role in the 9/11 attacks, or had you forgotten?) in their struggle against the forces of evil.

Poor God. Constantly dragged into the conversation whether he likes it or not.
