What a great idea (NOT!)

Wesley Clark wants to enlist the Saudis in the War on Terror.

Sounds good. We could always use more help from the House of Sod, even if it just means that they try and arrest the numerous extremists within their own borders.

But a joint US-Saudi commando force, deployed in Pakistan? What US commander would want the Saudis watching his back? Good grief, Wes, the Saudis didn't even lift a finger to help with Saddam, even though it was to their benefit. Do you really think the troops they send would be reliable?

And this man once commanded all US forces in Europe?

Thank goodness the Cold War was over by then. The Russkies missed a golden opportunity.

What military commander would want the military equivalent of the Keystone Cops watching their back? I think old Wesley Clark is confused. The only country with a fighting force worth it's salt in the middle east is Israel. The rest couldn't fight themselves out of a Saudi sheep market. Posted by: digrafid at November 14, 2003 12:35 AM
