First of all, President George Bush wants to hold one of his rare state dinners in mid-April with King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia as the guest of honor. King Abdullahdeclines, citing "scheduling conflicts." Uh huh. And Jordan's King Abdullah hascanceled a state visitwhich was planned for September.
What's happened? Has Saudi Arabia finally decided that continued association with US foreign policy has more minuses than pluses? Or possibly Russia's recent overtures to Saudi Arabia have borne fruit?
Well, throw some interesting work at me, and put me in an advanced programming course, and the urge to blog, or to even read many blogs, flies right out the window. Which says more than a little about my blog muse, I suppose.
By the way, anyone else concerned about what's going on inPakistan?
