Saudi King Unhappy With US Handling of Egypt

Thursday, 07 Apr 2011 10:16 AM

The Saudi Arabian monarchy is so unhappy with the Obama administration that it has sent envoys to Russia and the Peoples’ Republic of China to seek expanded business opportunities. NBC’s Tom Brokaw, in a report from Baghdad, said the anger stems from the way the administration dealt with Egypt’s President Hosni Mubarak,” CNSNews.com reports.

Brokaw also reported on the Iraq’s fragile democracy as the United States prepares to withdraw military forces by years’ end. He said the United Nations secretary general is worried about massive street protests in Iraq and added that “Iraq is a reminder of just how difficult it is to establish a democracy in this part of the world. After all, we've been at war here for eight years now, hundreds of billions of dollars have been spent, and thousands and thousands of lives have been lost on both sides,” CNSNews reported.
