    Just what the mid east needs - a major escalation in the more than 1000 year old Shiite/ Sunii war. They must have been "criminals" - most were shiites.

    Seems if you do not think the same way as those in charge you are somehow a terrorist. That really isn't very fair to those citizens living there for then anyone not going along with the program would be a terrorist.

    Neither is putting women in jail or giving them a dozen whip lashes it they go out of their house without the required male blood relative escort - US is a great hypocrite by its continued support of the Saudi government.

    The Saudi government is brutal and repressive and fosters values which are antithetical to those in the West. None of that is new. The West has been urging reforms. But, oil speaks and in the past it has spoken very loudly. The question is will it continue to speak in the future as loudly as it has in the past?
