    Saudi Daily Calls to Hold Gulf-wide Dialogue with Al-Qaeda

. . .
Perhaps a dialogue with Al-Qaeda is the path to a resolution and to preventing [further] bloodshed. Without [such dialogue], the U.S. will become a direct party [acting in Yemen], which will complicate and escalate the situation – especially since Yemen is in the difficult stage of a war on poverty, [a fact] that plays to the advantage of anyone [wishing] to toy with its security by means of material enticements. Most dangerous of all is that [Yemen] has long been a market for the smuggling, trading, and caching of arms, and its mountain and sea borders facilitate the entry of arms from all points of origin.
. . .
"The government and Al-Qaeda have clashed because Al-Qaeda began growing stronger, contrary to its image as [a band of] small groups seeking an escapade at every chance. The fact that dozens of soldiers, [other] military personnel, and police were killed in a place under their own rule, and their weapons looted, is a very serious matter indeed, and no one can predict the reaction of the government, which is still in a stage of adapting to and dealing with the existing circumstances. What is needed is a Gulf-wide move, before the dangers reach their maximal proportions."[1]

I have been on record as disliking and distrusting the Saudi SoB's.

For those who have faith, no explanation is neccessary.
For those who have no faith, no explanation is possible.

St. Thomas Aquinas

If one turns his ear from hearing the Law, even his prayer is an abomination. Proverbs 28:9
