Talking Turki

At "The National Interest," Paul Pillar casts doubt on the idea that the Saudis are lobbying for a U.S-Iran war:
A more reliable indication of Saudi leadership attitudes were the remarks in Washington earlier this month of Prince Turki al-Faisal, who said flatly that a military strike against Iran would be calamitous. It is highly unlikely that Turki would make such a strong public statement if it clashed with the king's views, public or private.
