WAR: Intermission Over, Return to Your Seats

The suicide bombings in Riyadh mark the resumption of hostilities and the return, apparently, of Al Qaeda. Although this attack is reminiscent of the Khobar Towers attack, the choice of targets is hugely significant; as far as I can recall, nothing like this has happened in the Saudi capital before. Reports indicate that this may actually be a sign that we are getting real cooperation from the Saudi government. That has to be good news; the failure to confront terrorists is not the only failing of the Saudis, but given how few options we have for replacing them, the collapse of the mutual understanding between the Saudi regime and terror groups like Al Qaeda has to be a good thing.
