Iraq - Syria Arrests 137 Saudis

Middle East Online reports "Syria detains Saudis for trying to cross into Iraq".

While Assad seems to be getting the message the Saudis don't seem to be listening.

RIYADH - Syrian authorities have detained 137 Saudis after they attempted to cross into Iraq from Syria to take part in the anti-US insurgency there, a newspaper reported Thursday.

The would-be infiltrators are held in various Syrian prisons, said Al-Watan, which published the names of 17 of the detainees.

Now, when is Bush going to start getting tough with the Saudis?
