Need for immediate, shorter term solutions from a Saudi prince over the issue of a nuclear Iran. Last year it was reported the Saudis gave the Israelis the OK to use their airspace for an airstrike on Iranian nuclear facilities. The Saudis and Iranians have a long established rivalry. Not surprised by this. What is sad is that the Israelis felt the need to get a 2nd route planned out since the support from the US may not be 100% to go through US controlled Iraqi airspace.
The open hand diplomacy has not borne any fruit, per Sec of State Clinton they are becoming a military dictatorship, which is code for failed and renaming one dictatorship for another so you can 'get tough' on them with some cover to use against your supporters.
