Global Guerillas posts that the attack on the Saudi Consulate was a 'shaping' attack in preparation for the infrastructure attacks he expects at Ghawar and other Saudi oilfields and distribution hubs.
He sees this as a great risk because of "highly optimized tolerance" ... i.e. systems that are tolerant of the risks they are designed to tolerate.
The Christian Science Monitor agrees, calling the attack "evidence of the militants' ability to regenerate quickly in the face of concerted government efforts to disrupt their networks, and then target some of the country's most closely guarded installations."
It's going to be an interesting December.
