Here’s a lovely example of our petrodollars at work:

RIYADH (AFP) – Saudi King Abdullah, whose country is a close US ally, on Wednesday slammed the “illegitimate foreign occupation” of Iraq in an opening speech to the annual Arab summit in Riyadh.
“In beloved Iraq, blood is being shed among brothers in the shadow of an illegitimate foreign occupation, and ugly sectarianism threatens civil war,” Abdullah said.

Speaking of illegitimate foreign occupations, what about the Saudi madrassa in Villanova, Pennsylvania? Ya think maybe Bush can speak out against that?
And how about the fact that 70% of Iraqi suicide bombers are Saudis? What’s that? Friendly fire?
Forgive my sarcasm, but such friendship can be a bit overwhelming at times.
I often think that Iraq is not the only country which needed our help.
I guess the bright side is that we’re still over there until the left finally has its way.
Um, need I mention Iran? I’m not even sure such hostage taking bastards deserve a place among nations. The overall situation reminds me of Patton’s famous line:

“We are going to have to fight them sooner or later, within the next generation. Why not do it now while our Army is intact!”
