I have believed for quite awhile now that important and well-heeled Saudis helped with funding and logistics of the 9-11 attack inside the U.S. At this point, I think at least some important Saudis wanted a more robust U.S. military presence in the middle east to prevent Shia Muslims in Iran and Iraq from overwhelming majority-Sunni Muslim countries, like Saudi. 9-11 provided the motivation.
I mention those things again today because it sure seems to me like Saudi Arabian leaders are doing everything they can...again...to drag the U.S. into a full fledged Sunni-Shia Muslim war.
While not mentioning any terrorist groups by name, King Abdullah's statement appeared aimed at drawing Washington and NATO forces into a wider fight against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, and its supporters in the region. Saudi Arabia openly backs rebels fighting Syrian President Bashar Assad, but is concerned that the breakaway al Qaeda group could also turn those very same weapons on the kingdom.
