Saudi Arabia

OT - 10-29-15 - Baseball!

What is this thing with Saudi Arabia? It's like Saudi Arabia is the most powerful country in the world. One prince gets picked up for rape and then let off, his cousin gets caught with two tons of drugs apparently meant for "ISIS". Those Saudi dudes are always crashing their cars in Beverly Hills. And there was that escort of the bin Laden family out of the country on Sept. 12th. Somebody, explain what the United States is afraid of? Oil will get cut off? Or something else?

Wow. The astounding grip the Saudis have on Western discourse.

The West Rightly Condemns Isis Vandalism of Ancient Sites – But Not When the Saudis Do It

Explosives pulverize historic sites in the Middle East, bulldozers erase ancient tombs and shrines, historic forts are torn down and Ottoman facades destroyed. The home of the favourite wife of the most revered man in an entire religion is even turned into a block of toilets. How can the world prevent this wicked desecration and extinction of a heritage that belongs to all mankind? I am, of course, referring to those iconoclastic Wahhabi-Salafist Muslim head-choppers … the Saudis!
