House of Bush, House of Saud

Now we know why King Abdullah canceled his visit and state dinner with the White House. He had to stay around and give a speech denouncing the "illegitimate occupation of Iraq."
Saudi King Abdullah, whose country is a close US ally, on Wednesday slammed the "illegitimate foreign occupation" of Iraq in an opening speech to the annual Arab summit in Riyadh.

"In beloved Iraq, blood is being shed among brothers in the shadow of an illegitimate foreign occupation, and ugly sectarianism threatens civil war," Abdullah said.

He also said that Arab nations, which are planning to revive a five-year-old Middle East peace plan at the summit, would not allow any foreign force to decide the future of the region.
The House of Saud has just officially dumped the House of Bush.
