Sunni's are the majority in Saudi Arabia (if not 100%). So what are they within Saudi Arabia that say if you were to remove (technically impossible for they are 100%) you would have to deal with far worse people such as the Shia were in Iraq?
What is the analogy of not making the mistake in Saudi Arabia just as it was in Iraq?
That's the first time I ever heard you admit to doing what is Right.
You did Get it Right.....they should be opposed and in All ways Possible. Let them start to experience some of that Systematic genocide and watch how fast they change their Chirpping and whining and getting up on that World Stage.

The religious types in Saudi Arabia are bad.. really bad, and could make the Iranian mullahs look like boy scouts. The only thing keeping them in check is the Saudi Royal family, and the only thing that keeps them from declaring a holy war against Shia, Christians and Jews is.. the Saudi Royal family.So what are they within Saudi Arabia that say if you were to remove (technically impossible for they are 100%) you would have to deal with far worse people such as the Shia were in Iraq?
The mistake in Iraq was to remove Saddam, who was keeping both religions in check.. yes he was a bastard and mass murderer, but in the end I would rather have him around than a massive religious war in the region that will spread across the planet. The mistake of removing the Saudi Royals is letting the crazy nutso religious branch of Sunni Islam go amok as a state, like what the Shia have done in Iran.What is the analogy of not making the mistake in Saudi Arabia just as it was in Iraq?
This all boils down to the internal divisions in Islam, pure and simple. The west has a choice.. choose a side, or butt out and let the pieces fall where they may. I doubt that we will butt out..
So the question boils down to.. who do you trust more, the Sunni's who gave us Bin Laden or the Shia who gave us the Mullahs in Tehran? Hard choice..
A move which Republicans opposed. I'm not saying we should have bombed Syria to keep the Saudis happy, far from it, but its impossible keep everyone happy in foreign relations so posting a link about another nation being upset about a decision we made in our own interests is hardly saying a President, any President, is incompetent thats just reality.
Still, Saddam had to go! Nothing gives a man the right to treat other people the way he did. Even if he did oppress the Shia religious in Iraq. You could venture (if you have such a thick skin) in Youtube and see what he did to his captives.
As for the decision between the two, perhaps names could help. You have: a) Sunni's, and b) Shiite's
