So now it’s official. The government of Saudi Arabia told Dick Cheney that it will arm Sunni militias if the U.S. leaves Iraq. Last July, you’ll remember, Saudi Arabia blamed Israel’s invasion of Lebanon entirely on Hizbollah, while Olmert referred–with no detectable irony–to the Kingdom as a “moderate Arab state.” Which means we’re seeing a very clear alignment: Saudi Arabia, the U.S., Israel, Fatah, and Saniora’s government on one side, and Iran, Hamas, Hizbollah, and maybe Syria on the other side. I just want to hide under a blanket and go to sleep.
