The United States of America has a befuddling relationship with the largest oil exporter in the world. They are allied to the US and its largest client for weapons, even though the Joint Congressional Inquiry report from 2002 reported (in pages that were censored until 2016) that terrorists that took part in the 9/11 attacks had considerable financial ties to the Saudi royal family.

If I could have one superpower, it would be the ability to stop time. I would travel to the middle east and spend the rest of my life joyfully slaughtering muslims as they were frozen in time. Imagine, starting time after and watching a million people or more drop dead simultaneously. In your face, islam.
I don't live in saudi arabia but i live in syria and i can tell you that the amount of ppl taking drugs like tramadol is truely shocking,there are real numbers or figures but its more than 100 thousand for sure in a country of 18 million.
America should incorporate beheadings and there should be a lottery system set up where young people are chosen at random and made to watch. I'd be willing to bet future crime statistics would decrease dramatically.
If you got rid of the Saudi government it would not matter who took over would be just as bad or even worse that's how the Muslim world is can't change them best thing do is have nothing to do with them and the whole middle east and not let in the U.S.A.
Dr. Limbo Agreed. But, for now I’d settle for solar, wind, hydrogen, etc that we already have available to us. Better storage of power is were our focus should be. Having an infrastructure that supports electric and hydrogen vehicles would be a great step forward as well.
What you probably didn't know was that there were numerous Saudi elites in the United States at the time (including members of the Bin Laden family) who were all given safe passage out of the country by the Bush Administration.
Idk why ppl hate on Muhammad so much we all know he had 13 wives and he married a 9 year old girl thats all true but islam in later eras was actually not that fanatic and quit decent like Christianity today it got much much worse since then but as a belif islam is almost exactly like Christianity since Mohammed "borrowed" a lot from it. In conclusion i think islam as a religion needs more time bc its only 1400 years while Christianity is 2000.
@subvet657 Because there is no law against it. It is an accepted social practice. Even the polygamist, drunken warlord Mohamed was a known acknowledged pedophile. Seem kiddy diddling is the norm there.
KSA is also a victim of Islam. It is not the royals who govern the daily life. The royals and all rich ones life behind big walls. Behind that cover they can do what they want. The ordinary people is controlled by the religious police (Mutawas). They have the power. Sharia has the power.
So the issue really isn’t so much with Saudi Arabia than it is with their literal interpretation of the Koran and Islam in general. But, oh no! I’m a “Islamophobe” for even mentioning that! But the word “Islamophobe” means “fear of Islam” and after watching that video EVERYONE should be terrified of Islam!
China has put a million people in concentration camps, Syria has killed a million, Iran has tortured and killed the same. While America is still popping blacks like it’s festival. But of course the big bad Saudi is the most evil.
If you were unaware of the Saudis participation in 9/11 you must have had your head buried in the sand or up one of the Saudi Royal's arses you know like Bush, of course, he was holding the Prince's hand the whole time. Cause they are buddies.
On April 12, 2004, Representative Henry A. Waxman wrote a letter to Attorney General John Ashcroft, "regarding the departure of members of Osama bin Laden's family and the Saudi royal family following the September 11, 2001, attacks."
Previously the purview of conspiracy theories, the Boston Globe's Craig Unger wrote on April 12, 2004, to say that the Bush administration needed to answer some "unasked questions."
Unger stated that the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States (also known as the 9/11 Commission), while then calling former and current administration officials while under oath to task for actions prior to and following the attacks, should ask who, two days following the terrorist attacks on September 11th, authorized "the evacuation of approximately 140 Saudis."
The Bush administration refused to answer repeated requests from the 9-11 Commission "about who authorized flights of Saudi Arabian citizens, including members of Osama bin Laden's family, from the United States immediately after the attacks of 2001."
Craig Unger is the author of House of Bush, House of Saud: The Secret Relationship Between the World's Two Most Powerful Dynasties (Scribner, March 2004). See Unger's article for the full details of both the event and his investigation and evidence.
Of course, the Saudis involvement in the attack is subterfuge we know it was a false flag operation just one in a long list.
This is a person who is informed by news stories and nothing else, there is no first hand experience of Saudi Arabia to speak of, it should be '10 news stories from Saudi Arabia'. Bigoted video that lacks credibility.
The ironic thing is, I personally know feminists that complain about their treatment here in America that also defend countries like Saudi Arabia's barbaric policies because, and I quote, " that's just their culture."
Being born there and knowing a thing or two about the country I was almsot sure that you were talking about another country. I mean it's not like I had seen anything on the list when I was still living there.
Without doubt, one of the most barbaric and backward country in the world today, but also one of the richest, which means the West will put up with it because it benefits them financially. Its all about oil and money. Sad really, but it us the reality of our world.
Alot of people, especially in the US, blindly think that because of all the technology we have & because most people in the US are relatively safe & live cushioned lives that there is little human rights violations happening in the world. That is a falsehood to say the least. There are countries like Saudi Arabia, Iran, North Korea, etc that mistreat their citizens & visitors so badly that I, as well as millions of other people, think that those governments need to be toppled. I wonder if we as humans will EVER stop brutally hurting & killing each other? I wonder if globalism is a natural evolution of our race? I can see some benefits of globalism but I can also see a massive downside of globalism as well. If the wrong people are in charge then the largest concentration of power in human history would turn into the largest slave state in human history as well & could go unchecked for years & even centuries especially if the people are disarmed & not allowed to own personal property and surveillance watched 100% of their movements and the technology of reading people's thoughts, which is already being developed(look at the TED talk about it). As bad as the world is now, it may be heading to a much worse situation.
True faith can never never be imposed by force, indoctrination, fear of punishment or intimidation. The minute such is imposed in the name of a 'faith or religion' then such a faith or religion becomes empty and ultimately pure deception.
