    I'm pretty sure Saudi Arabia asks itself the very same question.

    no. they are a dictatorship using religion to distract attention from their tyranny. i look forward to a time when we replace oil so that i no longer have to send them any of my money. i hope to live long enough to see that day.

    fifteen out of the nineteen hijackers were from Saudi Arabia, and we attacked Afghanistan and Iraq instead.

    Not really.

    Thats why I want us to use our own oil & the Canadian oil !!

    Seems like a no-brainer.

    No wonder our govt can't figure it out !!!

    Who cares?

    Besides, what has this got to do with the price of tea in China?

    The whole problem in the Middle East is the best reason to sever that ties to any foreign source of Energy.

    We need to get all of the private industry in the United States churning and get the Natural Gas harvested through Fracking and cut off the imports of energy from any other place.

    Mexico and Canada would be acceptable in the near term.

    There is no percentage in having our destiny tied to the insanity of a culture dominated by the relics of a stone age religion.
    I am not of the mind that a man is either of science or of religion. At his best and his worst, man exists in the misty glimmering where the falling angel meets the rising ape. That he chooses a direction from that point defines him as human.

    I agree that, to us, their justice system seems whacked. My point is that our patchwork justice system is such that the same crime often gets vastly different sentencing treatment and that a much more serious crime (e.g. child rape) can get a much shorter sentence than a far less serious crime (e.g. driving drunk).

    The idea of treating other nations as if we should be able to dictate their internal affairs, while insisting that they have no say in our internal affiars is moronic. We apply serious sanctions against nations that allow some voting (e.g. South Africa) yet give "most favorable nation" status to others that allow no voting at all (e.g. China).

    Our foreign policy is mostly based on $$$; if a nation is deemed good for our business leaders to deal with then it is also good for our gov't to get cozy with. Mexico has a far more screwed up justice system than Canada, yet we freely trade with both out of simple convenience ignoring the fact that Mexico is a corrupt narco-terrorist state.

    Much like Afghanistan being both an enemy and a good firend; we are at war in Afghanistan (until next year - when we will declare "victory") yet still pump billions in foreign aid into its corrupt gov't. Egypt is another such mess - we pay them to "make nice" with Israel yet supply them massive military aid when they have no real enemies (except Israel?).

    And then, of course, there is GITMO; a prison for "detainees" that will likely never be tried (or released) and most of these "detainees" are not even charged with any crime.
