1. dislike of the house of Saud is pretty global

Westerners dislike them because they see them as fundamentalists

Easterners dislike them because they are dollahos and collaborate with Israel

Fundamentalists dislike them because they put on a pious image but have decadent lifestyles, are dollahos and collaborate with Israel

bushregime loyalists believe that this will make it easier to get support for seizing their oil

The house of saud is teetering, and it should fall, but the likelihood that the bushregime would allow the arabian people to choose their own gov is about as likely as any population in the ME choosing a gov that could be counted on to put US financial interests ahead of the wellbeing of its people.

For that you need sleazy dollahos.

It is also unlikely that a bushregime invasion and asset seizure of arabia would enjoy a great deal of popularity with either the arabian people or the region as a whole.
