"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
It wasn't Saudi nationals.. there were six that remain unidentified because they used false papers.. They were very likely Hajj overstayers who used the US consulate to get visas into the US.. KSA students have had a fast track for US visas since early 1950.
Saudi only beheads people convicted of rape, murder and other capital crimes.
Wahhabi had NO connection to Al Qaeda.. AQ's Islam is a combination of Deobandi and Egyptian nationalist thought dating back to the early Muslim Brotherhood. OBL was the black sheep of his family..
The Saudis aren't out to break the US shale industry.. They are putting the screws to Russia and Iran as well as ISIS. Shale oil is not a competition for Saudi oil .. We don't export US oil and We buy less Saudi oil now than anytime in the past two decades.
You really should follow the oil business more closely... Iraq just announced they will double production out of Kirkuk this year.
Obama has finally decided to send American troops to assist Syrian terro..i mean rebels, has he?
Good grief. These people better know what they are doing.
1.)This is breaking news? We have been doing this for the bast 3 years now.... U.S. has secretly provided arms training to Syria rebels since 2012 - Los Angeles Times Americans are training Syria rebels in Jordan: Spiegel | Reuters West training Syrian rebels in Jordan | World news | The Guardian
2.)I wonder what their endgame is? Lets say in some god given miracle theses "moderate rebels" actually win. What happens? Peace and democracy!? I doubt it, I bet the factions turn against each other and we have something like current day Libya..... It looks like Obama stays the course of the neo-liberal foreign policy that has been with us for the past 30 years...
