Zubeida Malik
The crisis over Iraq has put Saudi Arabia where the country's rulers would rather it wasn't; very much on the front line, and the focus of constant speculation about how much help they'll give the Americans. Will they, won't they join the diplomatic dance - especially if it turns military?
