    That doesn't mean they were. Whoever makes the claim that al-Qaeda is Saudi-sponsored has to prove it first.
    What we do know is that 19 hijackers attacked us on 9/11, 15 of them were Saudi nationals and we attacked A-Stan. Now just imagine if 19 hijackers attacked Saudi Arabia in similar fashion, 15 of the hijackers were Americans and Saudi Arabia responded by attacking Bolivia.
    Consider context. The Taliban regime was openly allied with al-Qaeda and hosted advanced level terrorist training camps within Afghanistan. Saudi Arabia did no such thing. If the United States immediately showed sympathy for Saudi Arabia, and if Bolivia was the only supporter of the terrorists at the time, then your analogy would work.

    You'll get no argument from me that Saudi Wahhabist ideology doesn't spread terrorism, but I have no evidence to believe that the government has any connection with al-Qaeda.

    They have to. The special concrete Iran has is exceedingly durable to explosives and high velocity impacts. It's interesting how something as mundane as concrete may be the lynchpin to Iran's nuclear weapons program survival.

    So you're betting on the guy who brings drugged big cats to take pictures with, domesticated horses pretend to be wild, and pre-placed underwater ship wrecks as discoveries?

    That's no better.

    And what would they do differently? Realistically, how would they get the money for their plans?

    So they've been working on a 30,000 lb bunker buster with I think over 5000 lbs of explosives.

    Hmmm. How are they planning on delivering that through Iran's defense network?

    No doubt they're spending money to defeat this. It may take a while.

    I feel like I took a wrong turn and ended up in the Conspiracy forum.
