... but if we can sustain the effort, we'll eventually piss off everyone. From CNN:

A top adviser to the Saudi royal family dismissed suggestions that money from the kingdom was funding Iraq's insurgents and called reports that his government has not done enough to stop such payments "irresponsible." Adel al-Jubeir, chief foreign policy adviser to Crown Prince Adbullah, said the Saudi government had taken "very strong steps" and that reports, such as those from Sen. Bob Graham, D-Florida, indicating Saudi Arabia was attempting to undermine U.S. interests, were not "supported by the facts." The Defense Intelligence Agency recently reported insurgents received funding from external donors, including sympathetic Saudis.

Are Saudis funding the insurgency? Might they be smiling to our faces while they stoke the flames of war behind our backs? I don't know the answer, but it wouldn't shock me terribly.
