#1 It's reflection of the weakness of a religion to forbid worshipping other religions. If the appeal to other than the eye-rolling drooling nuts were so absolute they wouldn't enforce the ban. Soddy needs to be called on it - repeatedly and often - and made to defend their weakness. If the Muslim men had any pride and self-confidence they wouldn't have to treat their women like possessions either

#2 Sanctions should happen but probably won't. This is the Sods after all. But after we finish off Iraq, I wouldn't be surprised if we get a lot more surly toward the Saudi entity.

#3 American spin-consumers are buying Bush's oilpatch rhetoric about Islam being one of the "faiths of Abraham." This is what Muslims think of inter-faith, and I am not selling snakeoil:

#4 At the same time, folks, we have a full plate right now. We have to deal with Iraq, and those pesky NKors keep demanding that we pay attention to them. Add the time it will take to comb through the Iraqi archives and track all the leads, finish all al-Qaeda, and start a smack-down of Hezbollah, and I would just as soon hold off on the Soddis.

Until, oh, say, September.

#5 September works for me, just hoping we stop with the "Islam Is Peace®" crap and start publicly questioning our real relationship with Saudi soon after the fall of Baghdad. In the meantime - Kuwait and other countries facilitating the push should be rewarded
