The House of Saud has denied the use of air bases in any attack on Iraq.

Some points:
By putting this forward, in the absence of any actual request to do so, how is this not “unilateralism”?
By stating this position prior to any UNSC decision, weapons inspections or violations, is Saudi not “going it alone” without “pursuing all diplomatic options”?
If the right of the US to self-defence/retaliation is to be subjected to UNSC control, why should Saudi have the right to opt out?
