Saud's Will Not Participate In Iraq Strike

What happened to the UN being the supreme body? If the UN says there is to be a strike Arabia will not help? But just a month ago they were saying no strike could happen unless the UN said so, and of course they would do whatever the UN wanted.

That was when there was no chance the UN would agree to such a thing.

In remarks published Monday, Saudi Defence Minister Prince Sultan bin Abdul Aziz echoed Prince Saud's comments, saying: "The kingdom has a special status in the Arab and Muslim worlds as it is home to the two holy mosques (in Mecca and Medina) and will not sacrifice this status for the sake of anyone."
