The White House on Thursday praised the late King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz al Saud of Saudi Arabia, a longtime close ally of the United States — if sometimes a troublesome one.




“He took bold steps in advancing the Arab Peace Initiative, an endeavor that will outlive him as an enduring contribution to the search for peace in the region. At home, King Abdullah’s vision was dedicated to the education of his people and to greater engagement with the world.”


You gotta be snipping me!

Hail this guy ?

What the hell for ?

Want to know what women's rights are in Saudi Arabia ?

Want to know what gay rights are in Saudi Arabia ?

That's not to mention Saudi if the largest financer of terrorism in the middle east, and they are our so called 'ally' ?



WASHINGTON — Nine years after the United States vowed to shut down the money pipeline that finances terrorism, senior Obama administration officials say they believe that many millions of dollars are flowing largely unimpeded to extremist groups worldwide, and they have grown frustrated by frequent resistance from allies in the Middle East, according to secret diplomatic dispatches.




A classified memo sent by Mrs. Clinton last December made it clear that residents of Saudi Arabia and its neighbors, all allies of the United States, are the chief financial supporters of many extremist activities. “It has been an ongoing challenge to persuade Saudi officials to treat terrorist financing emanating from Saudi Arabia as a strategic priority,” the cable said, concluding that “donors in Saudi Arabia constitute the most significant source of funding to Sunni terrorist groups worldwide.”

As someone pointed out in another thread.

Our dear leader was a no show in Paris, but off to pay his respects to the 'good' king.

A WikiLeaks released memo from the United States Secretary of State sent in 2009 asserted that the primary source of funding of Sunni terrorist groups worldwide was Saudi Arabia.[87]

You Can't Understand ISIS If You Don't Know the History of Wahhabism in Saudi Arabia

Saudi Arabia virtual creator of the last decade of war.

Funding it. Creating AQ, and ISIS, and other terrorist's in the middle east.

Economic warfare by trying to kill fracking. To make us more dependent upon their oil.

And our fearless leaders wants to go pay his 'respects'. !

Hell I wouldn't give our dear leader the time of day.

This is pretty shadey of him, I don't like it one bit.

But it would be silly to think that any other sitting president wouldn't do the same with our 'relationship' with Saudi.

Abdullah was the caretaker of Mecca first & foremost, ...3rd or 4th he was the Western Infidels benefactor in supporting the petro-dollar... but even that distinction comes behind keeping the Kaaba* in eternal readiness and funding Wahhabism

* = "The Black Stone descended from Paradise much whiter than milk, but it was turned black by the sins committed by mankind."...the black stone aka 'Mystery' is contained in the Kaaba


add: time is quickening so that very soon the turmoil from Yemen will threaten Arabia... two USA 'friendly' states are drawing the puppet Obama there to try to head off the invasion by hostile armies of Yemen/turnover of control of Mecca from the Saudi Monarchy
the fundamentalists...Shia & Sunni alike are taking over nation states into a Caliphate

It's not impossible to imagine western forces being sent to defend Saudi oilfields for them,possibly creating a WWIII scenario.That is why we sent troops the first time.To defend the Kuwaiti/Saudi oilfields.

That's what American troops are doing in Syria, and Iraq.

Helping terrorists.

I Agree not hard to imagine at all.

Im going to olay devils advocate here and say the king was not in himself evil.

From what I know of him he was a ok bloke and very pro west and reformer.

Problem was the backward country he ruled.


Alot of the country real power when running country lies with the local clerics and religious police who happen to be the sick extremist bastards we hate.

Now house saudi would love nothing better than to get rid of them, they are a embaressing pain in the arse and bad gor buisness. Problem is there are a lot of them and they have quite abit of power.

If house saudi tried reforming to fast they could very well end up with there heads cut off.

So they tread carefully, very carefilly.

Our leaders dumb as they are know this. And as imperfect as house saudi are no one wants them deposed and replaced with a pyco isis style goverment sitting not just on the worlds biggest oil reserves but mecca itself.

If house saudi are removed it wont be sunshine and unicorns but a worse mess than it is now,p.

The whole country is a house of cards.


Now personaly i still dont think either my or your country should be so far in support of them.
But it would be a mistake to think saudi arabia could be better off without there current royal family.

War of some description is the daily fare for Shia/ Sunni feud that goes back to the death of Mohammad......
With the Saudis and the Iranians its game on no matter what is ever said on the surface......
For there to be real peace...one will have to annihilate the other, or both exhaust themselves trying would be better....
And perhaps this after all,....IS THEIR agenda....?.

Yep.

All that snip in the middle east is because of Saudi, and Iran vying for regional control.

Then it's off to the big leagues of playing Pinky, and the Brain trying to rule the world.

The only question is ?

The rulers going to be the sunni or shia's.

I wish they had the snips to go after each other instead of effing up other peoples countries.

And just get it over with.

a reply to: MetallicusAmerica struck a deal to always protect Saudi Arabia and be a large purchaser of its oil.it was Eisenhower who made this deal so blame him for making a deal with the devil.


Extract from an account by William Eddy, the American Ambassador, of the meeting between President Roosevelt and King Abdul Aziz, 14 February 1945, at Great Bitter Lake:


www.archiveeditions.co.uk...
the Quincy agreement



From 14 February, President Roosevelt and King Ibn Saud of Saudi Arabia met aboard the Quincy. During the meeting, President Roosevelt tried to persuade Saud to give support for Jewish immigration to Palestine and hoped that Ibn Saud might be able to offer constructive advice on the Palestine issue. There, Roosevelt and Saud concluded a secret agreement in which the U.S. would provide Saudi Arabia military security – military assistance, training and a military base at Dhahran in Saudi Arabia – in exchange for secure access to supplies of oil.[1]

To go further along your tangent... What does American owe to Israel? Haven't you sent them enough military and infrastructural aid to keep your great great grand children paying the mortgage? What message were you insinuating about this president? That Obama is a crypto Muslim? What's wrong with being Muslim? They believe in the exact same fairy tales that Jews and Christians do. One president out of 25~ presidents doesn't put Israel's interests before the US's and people are ready to revolt. That's how social engineering and propaganda work.
