Saudis Strike Back

FOXNews.com - U.S. & World News - Saudi Forces Kill Five Terror Suspects: "Saudi security forces on Monday shot dead five suspected terrorists believed to be involved in a foiled attack on the world's biggest oil processing complex, the Saudi Interior Ministry said. A sixth suspect was arrested.

The shootings came after security forces raided two houses in the Saudi capital of Riyadh that had been under surveillance...

'We think all the men involved had something to do with Abqaiq attempt,' al-Turki said, referring to Friday's attempt by suicide bombers to detonate car bombs inside the world's biggest oil stabilization plant."

I'm still trying to figure out what the bombers were trying to accomplish by bombing their own area. You would think their efforts would be put twoard hurting the west, but not so, apparently. Nice to see how quickly SA reacted though.

The terrorists feel that the Saudi regime is just a little too friendly to the west and would like to bring in an even more radical Islamic government to Saudi Arabia.

Some Muslims also object to hereditary monarchy, considering it to be un-Islamic.
