SAUDIS CONFIRM PLANS TO END U.S. MILITARY PRESENCE



Saudi Arabia has confirmed that Western military troops will leave the kingdom later this year. Saudi officials said U.S., British and French forces would leave the kingdom after the conclusion of a war against Iraq. They said Saudi Arabia would relay a formal request to NATO countries to end their military presence once the regime of President Saddam Hussein is toppled and order is restored in Iraq.

So apparently Arabs are not convinced that Hussein is a good guy and should be protected ... nor do they think European protests should make a difference in America's foreign policy.
