Most foreign insurgents in iraq are Saudis

After Americans, that is, of course. AFP:
Most foreign fighters and suicide bombers in Iraq come from Saudi Arabia, despite attempts by US officials to portray Syria and Iran as the main culprits of violence, a US newspaper reported Sunday.

Citing an unnamed senior US military officer and Iraqi lawmakers, the Los Angeles Times newspaper said about 45 percent of all foreign militants targeting US troops and Iraqi security forces were from Saudi Arabia, 15 percent from Syria and Lebanon, and 10 percent from North Africa
There's some progress aWol can cite: 79% of the alleged 9/11 hijackers were Saudis! Gasoline at $3.40 a gallon has bought a 34% reduction in Saudi terror involvement! Still, I think compared to Iran's miniscule alleged involvement, this should require all 100 senators to forcefully condemn Saudi Arabia. Yes, Sen. Vitter, this is worth sacrificing your manhood for! (At least as far as I'm concerned.)

Come on, America. If the Bush/Cheney lies aren't enough to convince you to impeach the bastards, how about the blatant hypocrisy? Every awful crime or thoughtcrime they've ever accused Saddam Hussein or Iran of goes a hundred times over for "allies" Saudi Arabia and Pakistan. No, we shouldn't go to war with Saudi Arabia or Pakistan. But the provocations from these two countries are far greater than anything Iraq, Iran, or even Afghanistan ever did.
