No longer welcome...

King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia told Arab leaders at an Arab League meeting in Riyadh on Wednesday that the American occupation of Iraq was illegal and warned that unless Arab governments settled their differences, foreign powers like the United States would continue to dictate the region's politics.
My understanding is that King Abdullah is considered one of our best friends in the Middle East. He also has a special relationship with the Bush family. It's increasingly looking like we might not be welcome in that neighborhood for much longer. Well, we still have the Israelis.
