Fareed Zakaria: The Saudis Are Mad? Tough!

Fareed Zakaria has a thoughtful piece analyzes why the “Saudi royals have been rattled by the events in their region and beyond.”  This is because  “they sense that the discontent that launched the Arab Spring is not absent in their own populace. They fear the rehabilitation of Iran. They also know that the U.S. might very soon find itself entirely independent of Middle Eastern oil.”
