has been dependent for its continued oper ations on the blessing of this same Arab world Guarding a thousandmile long pipeline would be an impossible task obviously A single well placed blast coulc end all operations at any time Chief Beneficiaries A first requirement laid down by Saudi Arabia is that none o the precious crude oil shall go to France or Britain and tha none of it shail be
