Obladi, Oblada, Obaid

Life goes on ... or does it?
Saudi will intervene in Iraq if U.S. withdraws: aide

Using money, weapons or its oil power, Saudi Arabia will intervene to prevent Iranian-backed Shi'ite militias from massacring Iraqi Sunni Muslims once the United States begins pulling out of Iraq, a security adviser to the Saudi government said on Wednesday.
"To be sure, Saudi engagement in Iraq carries great risks -- it could spark a regional war. So be it: The consequences of inaction are far worse," Obaid said.
Vice President Dick Cheney held talks with Saudi King Abdullah in Riyadh on Saturday. Details were not disclosed.
Obaid listed three options being considered by the Saudi government:

- providing "Sunni military leaders (primarily ex-Baathist members of the former Iraqi officer corps, who make up the backbone of the insurgency) with the same types of assistance", including funding and arms.

- establishing new Sunni brigades to combat the Iranian-backed militias;

- or the Saudi king "may decide to strangle Iranian funding of the militias through oil policy. If Saudi Arabia boosted production and cut the price of oil in half ... it would be devastating to Iran ... The result would be to limit Tehran's ability to continue funneling hundreds of millions each year to Shi'ite militias in Iraq and elsewhere."
The whole 'bring peace and democracy' to the Middle East is an even bigger lie than Saddam's WMDs.

So Bush, (the Chimperor), is meeting with Abdullah, (the King), (after being stiffed by the elected leader of Iraq, al-Maliki), to discuss 'democracy' in the middle east.

Irony abounds. Freedom doesn't. And Death never takes a holiday.
