As ruthless and effective as the kingdom's security forces can be, I doubt Al-Queda can win there, unless they happen to effect a large betrayal of important persons in the Saudi military, security and intelligence services.
Well I think all three are infiltrated, but what will prevail?
Imploding? Very good question. History teaches us that totalitarian systems ultimately collaspe of their own oppressive weight. It is oil money that has kept the undemocratic Saudi regime proped up. Saudi Arabian lack of respect for democratic values, and human rights (especially the rights of women), does not bode well for their peaceful near future.
And the price for the 'non-peaceful'? ~shudder~
It seems to me that it's a matter of picking the lesser of three evils??? Although as much as people don't like the Saudi royalty, to my way of thinking they are still slightly better than al-Qaida? JMO
Al Quida was basically born in SA.
Actually, AQ was born in Afghanistan to fight against the Soviets. It is true that many Saudis, but there are a lot of Malaysians, Indonesians, Egyptians, Pakistanis, Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians, etc. that are part of AQ too.
