Why Didn't We Attack Saudi Arabia?

The answer is simple and complex, but this irrational question, which is usually made as a statement is just plain...ignorant to the core. What people fail to grasp, is that this is a war unlike any other in modern history. In the international arena, war is conducted between sovereign nations. While most of the 9/11 attackers were Saudis, they were not wearing, nor were they a part of the established military of the Kingdom. Really basic, for in the context of interantional law, they were doing nothing more than if a bunch of plain old US citizens went to some country and blew some stuff up. They are criminals and subject to the laws of the country in which they committed their crimes. Being Americans alone does not then give the attacked nation the right to declare war on the US and head our way. This, of course, does not satisfy these people, for they are going "tilt!, Tilt!" since we are engaged in fighting in Iraq. This is where you have to remind them of history (the real stuff, to include even the MSM reports of 2002, and not the twisted things of the MSM's current reporting) on how Saddam had WMDs, the UN told him they had to go, then he still refused, so we suited up, on the assumption that the UN meant what they said, and then the UN lost their courage (they needed Dan Rather to get them motivated). Simple analysis for the moment. More ideas stored on my cell email (as a handy voice recorder) of other topics to come....
