    link? even if they paid the $36B, it wasn't enough. SA is the primary supplier of 9/11 terrorists, but Bush attacked and occupied Itraq. Using that logic, we should build a fence between the USA and Canada to keep out those pesky Mexicans....

I missed the part where you advocated for attacking China.

    Perhaps you should study the involvement of the United States in Iran. When you have completed your study tell me what you would expect the United States would do if the situation was reversed.
    Apparently you missed a whole lot more than that.

    Six of the dead terrorists were using fake IDs when they applied for US visas at the US Consulate in Arabia.

    We have no idea WHO they were.

    Saudi Arabia has been fighting terrorists for well over a decade and have become a huge counter terrorism asset to the US and the EU.

    The US new when they attacked Iraq and overthrew, that Iran would fill the vacuum.

    using your "evidence" then we can conclude that the American military is engaged in hostile activities against the Palestinians in gaza because the israelis are using USA provided weaponry to conduct its campaigns of terror
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it
    once you're over the hill you begin to pick up speed

    fake ID's doesn't mean they weren't from SA....the reason SA fights terrorists is to keep the wealth inside the Saudi royal family. To the royal family, asking that the wealth of SA be more proportionately shared with ALL Saudis makes them terrorists. Young men are still being taught in SA Mosques that western thought is evil and that to die fighting the west means martyrdom....
    Oh joy, oh rapture, to die just so the Saudi Royal Family can maintain its stranglehold on the wealth of SA....yeah, that's a good reason to strap on a bomb.....I guess.

    This is just one nugget of many......


    Iran has made it "our" business.....US forces and the current administration would be negligent of they did not take this seriously ..

    On Wednesday the Iranian ambassador to Moscow, Seyed Mahmoud-Reza Sajjadi declared that Iran has the capabilities to carry out military strikes on US interests around the globe.

    This comes after President Obama announced the United States would freeze all Iranian assets held in the US. The executive order which was signed on Monday was in reaction to what the US is calling deceptive practices by Iran
    .

    Saudis have always had easy access to US visas because they hav been sending Saudi students to the US since 1952.

    In short they got preferential treatment.

    Those Arabs could have been from Yemen or simply Hajj overstayers.

    The SAG government spends 90% of the oil revenue on infrastructure in Saudi Arabia.. like power plants, housing, hospitals, universities, roads, railroads, water treatment plants, desalination plants, solar farms, historic preservation.. and 300 dam to capture ground water.

    They are providing 250,000 Graduate level scholarships to European and US schools in the fields of finance, science and engineering, Medicine and international law.

    They also make soft loans for small business development.. That's why manufacturing has exploded in the kingdom since 2007.. They now have 500,000 factory workers.

    I really like the Sudeiri Seven.. They have an amazing track record over the past 70 years... and they are dedicated to the social and economic progress of the people.

    Apparently. Make it easy for me to understand. I'll read it.
