Saudi credit cards? SCREW THEM!

Postby Cucumber » Mon Apr 13, 2009 2:10 am

Maybe if you have a credit card in Saudi Arabia you can go buy your 8 YEAR OLD WIFE a toy or something with it? This is friggin sick and I cannot believe we support a country like this that endorse pedophilia and having women as slaves!

The joke is that if that were any other non-oil exporting country, we would be all over them. The only reason we won't throw a fit is because we know we need their oil. It's really sick when you think about what we're doing too... we are selling out morality for money.

I don't even know how to respond to something as warped as that.

Don't forget either that most of the 9/11 terrorists were Saudis. This is not a country that is any friend of the US.

Oil aside it is hard to believe we support them! Lots of other countries have oil and we are far more critical. Saudi Arabia is far more oppressive that Saddam Husein ever was.

I think the key is that there is a lot of American-built infrastructure in Saudi Arabia. Exxon etc. would lose a lot of money if SA got ticked at us and siezed the equipment.

And don't forget Mecca is in Saudi Arabia. DOn't ever think that that does not matter.

I completely agree- Saudi Arabia is much more oppressive than Saddam Hussein was. I have a friend whose family moved here from Iraq in the 80's and he still had his extended family back in Iraq. Throughout that time until now, he said that almost all of the things reported in the news about Saddam were propaganda. He by no means liked Saddam, but he was simply stating the facts.
