    The Saudis have had these brutal tactics in place for years.

    We have done too much for them over the years, with minimal payback.

    The sooner we can walk away from them, the better off we will be.
    So why isn't anyone doing anything??

    I think we should..

    Good afternoon, SMTA.

    It wouldn't bother me a bit if we took care of the problems in this country, which are myriad, and let other countries do the same in theirs! They've been killing each other for over a thousand years, and I don't see much of a change happening. Maybe they will just kill each other more democratically after we show them the best way to live their lives? That's probably it! :

    Maybe it is because we are all sticking our fingers in our ears and singing La-la- la..because we don't want to see what's happening..or are subjects of a government..that have close ties with Saudi..telling us not to look??

    No, they're just a bunch of primitives who have a commodity the rest of the world needs.

    Every country is a hypocrite who is simply trying to cater to their own perceived interests. That's how the world and foreign policy works. But given those circumstances, I think the US is doing a more agreeable job than a china, soviet union, or even a modern Russia would.

    Surely to god..your god..my goddess..there must be another way..

    I believe that Saudi has harbored..(I hate American spelling)....has financed all bombings..

    And we cannot fight them because we have sold them the latest weapons...

    Good afternoon, wolfie.

    We've got to get a handle on those guys behind the curtain, even though we're told to pay no attention to them! Who will the unaware "sheeple" blame? Chances are quite good that they won't believe it's the government's fault, if I'm reading the trends correctly! It also helps to have a compliant lapdog media, too! It's a shame when one is forced to read foreign newspapers to find out what is really happening in America! Disgusting!

    Commentaries from both Der Spiegel and Reuters, neither of which has an ax to grind that I can see. Our papers will then pick up the news, eventually, when they learn that we have already been told.

    We have no money, and our economy is in the tank.

    There are a myriad of problems that need to be addressed in the United States first.

    In addition, our record (or anybody's) for sticking their noses in another country's business, changing their economy, their religion, and their morals is poor, at best.

    Look how well the Brits did with India.

    So no, sending money that we don't have, troops that we don't have, and resources that we don't have to another country, whose mores and laws we don't understand makes no sense.

    United States citizens need to come first.
