15 out of the 19 hijackers on 9/11 were from Saudi Arabia.

We responded by attacking Afghanistan... and then Iraq (given reasons: link to terrorism, getting rid of evil dictator, bringing democracy, weapons of mass destrucion).

Saudi Arabia is also, NOT a democracy. It's an absolute monarchy. Saudi Arabia has known links to terrorism in the United States (9/11).

In 2003, it was discovered that Saudi Arabia may be seeking the purchase of a nuclear weapon.


In 1988, Saudi bought from China intermediate-range missiles capable of reaching any part of the Middle East with a nuclear warhead.


Source.

Why wasn't there an information campaign against Saudi Arabia? Why aren't we attacking Saudi Arabia? Given the reasons for attacking Iraq, Saudi Arabia would make an excellent target as well.

Almost 8 years after 9/11, we make a deal with ... Saudi Arabia for $20B in weapons over the next 10 years. Source.

Now I just plain don't get this...


Can anyone make sense out of all this for me?

Because we're PWN3D by Saudi Arabia. Iraq was a threat to the Saudis, Iran is a threat to the Saudis. Saudi Arabia is the source of most of the radical Islamist doctrines and 45% of the foreign insurgents in Iraq right now.

The Bush family has had close ties to the Saudi royal family for decades, it's never been a secret except to the Republican Party base who refuse to believe their President could be friendly with A-RABS.

Saudi Arabia and the US have been allies ever since they discovered oil and started buying things from the US. Any threat to the Saudi government, real or imagined gets stomped by the US. That's how it works. As to the 911 attack, 6 of those 19 dead terrorists are alive and well and never set foot on US soil. The one who's passport was found at the towers, lives in the UK, doesn't know how to fly, doesn't have a passport, and has never left the UK.
The Middle East is a complicated situation caused mostly by US interference into other nations governance. Having a list of names does not mean that you have a list of terrorists, it just means that you have a list of names. And saying that they came from Saudi Arabia just means that some one in Saudi intelligence gave someone in the CIA a convenient list of people that were on the Saudi radar for some reason or another.
If you want to find the people responsible, you use proper investigative and forensic techniques. If you want someone to blame, you go to the intellegence services.
