My cousin has worked in Saudi Arabia for 6 years as an engineer. He was working for a U.S. Company. He was gieven 48 hours notice to pack all his "stuff" and get the hell out. Everyone in the compound was told to do so. No explanation was given. There were a few rumors that Israel was going to attack, of course this is only a rumor and I have no knowledge of this...He is now back in Sunny CAlifornia.
