Saudi Minister warns U.S., Iraq May Face Disintegration

"Prince Saud al-Faisal, the Saudi foreign minister, said Thursday that he had been warning the Bush administration in recent days that Iraq was hurtling toward disintegration, a development that he said could drag the region into war.

"There is no dynamic now pulling the nation together," he said in a meeting with reporters at the Saudi Embassy here. "All the dynamics are pulling the country apart." He said he was so concerned that he was carrying this message "to everyone who will listen" in the Bush administration."

"This is a highly unusual move for the Saudis who, as one of our allies, have kept mostly quiet in public about the Iraq war until now. Perhaps they are worried that Iran is about to turn Shia Iraq into a client state and thereby commandeer its oil reserves. An oil rich Shia State could be a fierce regional competitor to Sunni Saudi Arabia -- both economically and militarily."
