U.S. threatens to abandon Saudis and their oil

The United States has sent a tough message to Saudi Arabia that did not rule out abandoning of the kingdom's oil sector.
U.S. officials said the Bush administration has warned that Americans would not stay in Saudi Arabia unless the kingdom takes significant steps to
protect them. The officials said the warning came in wake of the Al Qaida execution of Lockheed Martin engineer Paul Johnson on June 18.

Should we pull our 30,000 Americans citizens out of Saudi Arabia there could be a technology/worker vacuum, which could not be easily filled. Russia
could, though it is doubtful they would but China is starved for oil and could see this is an opportunity to get a foot hold in the Middle East.
Is this just saber rattling in the Bush Light administration designed to force the House of Saud to crack down on the terrorist and extremist
Wahhabist and get in line with what the Globalist want?
We keep seeing a series of escalations of tensions in the Middle East from all sides, which seem to be designed more to destabilize the region rather
than fix anything. The question to always ask is who has the most to gain?
Could this be another Pax Americanna ploy to give the neocons a reason to take over more of the area or are the terrorist guiding the plot far more
than we realize?
Make no mistake about it, though a great deal of the citizens, thanks to Islam, are not as well educated as they could be, the ruling forces are
whether terrorist or national leaders. This is the area of the world, which set down the first real legal system and more or less invented
mathematics, as we know it not to mention other discoveries in science. They are no fools!
Events in the Middle East are rapidly building to a crescendo, the outcome of which is anyones guess. One thing can be etched in stone, things will
become worse, much worse!
