I don't know how you reached that conclusion--we CFCers, at least, pretty much discuss or mention Saudi Arabia in a purely negative light. And, living in a Western country, I have to say that pretty much everyone I hear talking about Saudi Arabia, save my Arabic class and my Arabic professor who lives there, only has bad things to say about it. Don't confuse the US government with the American people. Anyway, in a hypothetical war, I'm wondering what the goals of each side are and how they plan on reaching each other. Overland, they have a country or two in the way, and either would get trashed trying to do something stupid like invade the other. Neither has the capability to invade the other by sea. So, what exactly would they be fighting over? Bahrain?
