Whose on which side Updated--posted by Tony Garcia on 7/18/2006
This story forced me to update the list of countries who have stated a side of WWIII.
The Lebanese Hezbollah's weeklong artillery attack on Israel has been condemned by Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Egypt and several Persian Gulf states.Ah, yes, now they go to the United Nations. One of two things will come from this. They will realize the UN is worthless and cannot help OR they know the UN is inept and are going there just to make it appear they are against the violence as a sham. "We showed outrage, we appealed to the UN Security Council. Give us some credit."
At an emergency Arab League summit meeting in Cairo on Saturday, the countries issued a joint statement denouncing the "unexpected, inappropriate and irresponsible acts," the New York Times reported Monday.
"These acts will pull the whole region back to years ago, and we cannot simply accept them," said Saudi foreign minister Prince Saud al-Faisal.
The meeting concluded with the league requesting help from the United Nations Security Council.
Hanna Seniora, a Palestinian analyst with the Israel/Palestine Center for Research and Information, praised the league's opposition to Hezbollah on Sunday.
"It became clear and beyond doubt that the most important Arab countries did not allow their emotions to rule their judgment," Seniora told the Times.
Regardless, while I question Saudi Arabia's motives I put them on the list according to their stated position.
