When the movies are made about the fall of the House of Saud, I hope and pray that Stanley Kubrick’s talents are somehow revived and applied. Only the man who made “Dr. Strangelove” could do justice to this.
Saudi Foreign Minister Saud al-Faisal delivered himself of an hypocrisy that from anyone else would be simply staggering. For him, it is only business as usual. Condemning the US position — declining to force Israel to accept a cease-fire that would preserve Hizballah — Saud said, “Washington has a moral responsibility to prevent Israel from using US weapons to kill innocent people.”
Not a word, naturally, about the moral obligations of Syria and Iran to stop Hizballah from raining rockets down on Israel. Next thing you know, he’ll be talking about purity of bodily fluids.
