The First of Many?

Attack Fails at Huge Saudi Oil Site:

Suicide bombers in explosives-laden cars attacked the world's largest oil processing facility Friday, but were prevented from breaking through the gates when guards opened fire on them, causing the vehicles to explode, officials said. [...]

It was the first attack on an oil facility in Saudi Arabia and it targeted one of the kingdom's most important. The huge Abqaiq processing facility near the Gulf coast handles around two-thirds of the country's oil output [...]

A Saudi journalist who arrived at the scene soon after the explosion said only one car exploded and that the guards killed two people in a second car before it blew up. Guards then battled for two hours with two other militants outside the facility, the reported told AP. He said he saw workers repairing a pipeline. [...]

The Abqaiq facility processes about 5-7 million barrels a day.

Okay, we need to get off that sandy oil teat and learn to rely on ourselves. How many think Bush's latest energy initiatives are just PR? Where's the leadership that can challenge this nation ala Jack Kennedy? Are there really no heroes anymore?

there are many project cars running on soy bean oil. They are just not being mass produced. I hold the automobile companies responsible. They have access to mass production but they are not producing the greener cars! Maybe bought out by the oil companies hmmmm?

Actually the President and his administration can only do so much. Its been the Congress that has been in the way of new R&D for new energy sources.

They have also nixed several bills calling for manufactures to make their products more efficient and stopped the building of new refinerys and nuclear plants.

So, the next time you vote, find out where your canidate stands on these things.

Until now all Al Qaeda actions in the kingdom have been against non-Saudi residents. Al Qaeda are the KKK of Saudi they lynch people who are not Arab Sunni.

This is the first ever attack on anything Saudi by Al Qaeda. Shocks and surprises me.
