    You better hope not, though the death may encourage the Shia minority or 'Radical' elements. (Yeah, I know, how much more rad than the govt can the populous be?)
    There are many in Saudi and other Gulf State Individuals who support ISIS.
    It's a country of Issslamistsss.

    The Stable 'pillar' is the 1000 princes, and their flotilla, who get and give the Oil money patronage.

    I'm personally sick of not being able to dunk a basketball because of racism.

    How much terrorism originates with Saudi Arabia?

    If ISIL can drop SA, it is over for the west. The caliphate would be a done deal.

    Its only a matter of time before those Oil Refineries are targeted...Maybe a 9/11 style hijacking into a major export port...

    Saudi Arabia also apparently has an "agreement" with Pakistan on obtaining nukes-I'd hate to see what the saudi's would do when cornered.

    Keep dreaming. We are not going to nuke the saudi oil fields. Do you even know what the caliphate is?

    I dont know about that. I think Israel, Egypt, and Turkey would be a formidable defense to further expansion.

    I wouldn't be surprised in the least. ISIS makes much of its money from black market oil sales. Targeting the Saudi's would make the Saudi's appear weak, drive up prices (both helping ISIS oil prices and harming the Saudi economy).

    I'm not worried about external forces doing anything in SA in the short term. The short term is fraught with internal coup and civil unrest.... an external fight would only bring SA and it's people together.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    If it ever came to total war, they'd be over. I think that was his point.
