Marc:
Precisely. You challenged John to show why the Saudi government sent them.
I
pointed out that they didn't. I'm happy that you've come around to our way
of
thinking ;-)

Dan:
I knew that they didn't. John had implied that Saudi Arabia had a higher
level of guilt for the attacks than did Iraq, because 15(17) of the
terrorist were Saudi, with Saudi Passports. Just because they were Saudi
citizens does not mean that the Saudi government supported their actions in
any way. The Iraqi government, on the other hand, does have ties to
terrorist groups, reportedly had intelligence connections to the specific
group that carried out the attacks, does pay restitution to the families of
suicide bombers, and is unwilling to prove that they are not actively
pursuing WMD.

Marc:
I'm not sure what you mean about "what [I'm] looking for," but very
generally
speaking I approve of the German approach. The Saudi government,
incidentally,
promised to pull US troops out of Dhahran, but they have yet to. This has
made
some fundamentalists furious. Saudi Arabia presents itself not just as a
nation-state, but as "Guardian of the Two Holy Cities" (of Mecca and
Medina), so
it has special meaning to most Moslems.

Dan:
They probably are not ready for us to leave because of the benefits of
having us there.
