#1 Is it inappropriate to bust out laughing while reading this?

Because I did, and want to know if that's a bad thing.

#2 It is possible that the Saudis are being kidnapped by Syrian gangs who might be selling them out to U.S. forces in Iraq under the pretext that they are fighters

Cause like, ya know, the Kingdom doesn't SEND terrorists to fight in Iraq. Evvvybuddy knows that.

#4 If Saudi Arabia bans travel to Syria, Syria's tourism dollars plummet and the economy goes into the toilet, and perhaps Sunni Islamists overthrow the existing Alawite dictatorship.* I can see why they're not doing a travel ban. Besides, Syria's borders, like Iraq's, are long and porous - there are other ways of getting into Syria apart from flying into Damascus.

* I don't think the Saudi government wants a theocracy (council of mullahs) in charge of Syria, since that might lead to similar demands in Saudi Arabia. That would sure spoil things for the 5,000-odd members of the Saudi royal family whose royal stipends would be at risk.
