On January 13, 2003, Saudi Ambassador Prince Bandar al Sultan met with President Bush. “…the president said that he was receiving advice and reports from some in his administration that in the event of war he [Bush] would have to contend with a massive Arab and Islamic reaction that would put American interests at risk… [Prince Bandar said] ‘This is Saddam Hussein. People are not going to shed tears over Saddam Hussein, but if he’s attacked one more time by America and he survives, he will be larger than life.’ ”
