America’s odd relationship with the Kingdom of Saud, a british creation which handed power into the most radical version of Islam, has now one thinks, grown too mad.
As a NET OIL EXPORTER the USA can value it’s currency based on it’s own energy. The need for a third party no longer exists. True Saudi crude is the cheapest to produce, but do we really expect oil to fall to 20 dollars a barrel anytime soon?
The 17 year old was beaten savagely and then told his whole family would be murdered if he did not confess his guilt. Reminds me of that Games of Thrones scene with Cersi – Shame Shame Shame.
Well, no matter. I for one do not want to go anywhere near a place where tweets = death. The Bush legacy which largely built up Saudi Arabia while rapingin the big bucks for their dynasty – which failed at JEB – is now no more.
Another young man, Munir al-Adam, was just 23, when he was arrested in 2012 at a government checkpoint. During his interrogation, his feet were so badly beaten that he was forced to crawl for days. After losing hearing in one of his ears, he was rendered completely deaf after the horrific torture.
He told a judge that he agreed to sign the confession because he was exhausted by the brutal and relentless torture.
The 37 murders were carried out in Riyadh, the Muslim holy cities of Mecca and Medina, central Qassim province and in the Eastern Province, the home of the Shiite minority. After being beheaded, one of the men was reportedly crucified, and his body was put on display as a message to other would-be dissidents.
That message? This is what could happen to you and your loved ones if you dare speak out against the crown.
No thanks, I think the civilized world is ready to break away from all the middle eastern madness. If Israel cannot defend itself NOW with over 200 BILLION in Aid and America’s Best Arms do they deserve to survive?
It’s time to walk away from the middle east, get our troops home defending the border and let them descend into madness.
