Saudis thwart oil refinery attack

By Aussiegirl

The world's oil supply is definitely under radical Islamic attack. Look at the hostages siezed and the pipelines blown up in Nigeria -- this is already having repercussions in prices. If this had succeeded it would have damaged Saudi production as well. Add to that the instability of Chavez in Venezuela, who has threatened a cutoff of oil to the U.S. and as a backup already has a buyer for the CITGO stations and supposedly has lined up China as a purchaser of the oil otherwise going to the U.S. You have Al Qaeda and Hamas cooperating and working with Chavez, and you have a lot of bad actors who all hate America who could conceivably coordinate their efforts in a bid to destabilize oil prices and the world economy. Coming on the heels of the bombing of the Golden Dome Mosque in Iraq and the fomenting of a civil war there, we have a very unstable situation being deliberately manipulated. It's going to be a bumpy ride for the next few months or year. Hang on!

CNN.com - Saudis thwart oil refinery attack - Feb 24, 2006

Saudi security forces have thwarted an attempted suicide attack at an oil processing facility in eastern Saudi Arabia, Saudi security sources told CNN.

Al Qaeda claimed responsibility for the attack, in a message posted on a Islamist Web site that has previously carried al Qaeda messages.

For me the salient characteristic of this particular bombing is its utter ineptitude. Neither of the two bomb-laden autos made it through the first of THREE security gates. One was exploded by ground fire, the other never detonated, its occupants captured. It must have hurt to have to take credit for this?

I wonder how the virgins feel about a martyr whose mission failed to kill ONE infidel?

Our enemy has been reduced to this, and WE'RE losing?
