Saudi king rejects Cheney's belligerency

Well that's certainly a headline I like to read in the morning. Cheney's war mongering didn't cut it with King Abdullah on his visit to Saudi Arabia.

excerpt: King Abdullah is against any US military strike against Iran, Saudi official sources said.
Saudi Arabia, along with other Persian Gulf Arab countries, sees negotiations as the best way to resolve the standoff between the US and Iran.

The king also told Cheney that the Middle East should be free of nuclear weapons and other weapons of mass destruction, the sources added.

The Saudis say any nuclear non-proliferation efforts should include Israel, which is widely believed to be the only nuclear power in the Middle East with around 200 nuclear warheads.
