Suicide Bombers Foiled In Attack On Huge Saudi Oilworks

The tempo of mayhem seems to be in an upswing.

Suicide bombers in explosives-laden cars attempted to attack an oil processing facility that handles about two-thirds of Saudi Arabia's petroleum output on Friday, but were stopped when guards opened fire on them, causing the cars to explode, officials said.

The Saudi oil minister said the blast "did not affect operations" at the Abqayq facility, denying an earlier report on Al-Arabiya television that the flow of oil was halted briefly.

The jihadis' new Tet Offensive?

We seem to be at a climax in this war, with the spiraling lawlessness and violence in Iraq and Iran continuing to build nukes. The light at the end of the tunnel is further away now.

For the first time in a while I'm beginning to doubt we can win this thing, at least according to our current, humane tactics. A line of Steven den Beste's keeps running through my mind (paraphrased): "Of course we can fight a two-front war. In fact, we can fight a ten-front war. It's just that eight of those fronts would be fought with nuclear weapons."

Usual caveats -- I hope it doesn't come to that, etc. -- but I begin to wonder if any other response will be effective.
