as much as it pains me to admit it

we kiss the saudi's ass because thats where our oil comes from

But its a grim fact

Our country CAN NOT be supported without oil (of ALL kinds)

plastic bags
garbage bags
jet fuel
diesel
regular unleaded
etc

despite what anyone says, our ways of life with completely change without oil. So i call for all earth rights activists to get off your high horse and quit bitching about this country drilling for its own oil.

That alone will solve a monkey barrel of problems

60% of the terrorist operating in Iraq are Saudi. Why don't we bomb the hell out of Saudi Arabia? Can anyone answer this question? WTF?!

Please provide a link for the 60% figure.
My point is just because someone was born in Saudi does not mean the Saudi government is responsible. A person born in Saudi could just have easily joined up with a terrorist group which has nothing to do with the Saudi government. Iran is providing arms, money and men to fight the U.S. and it's allies in Iraq.

Having said that, the U.S. is also to close to Saudi and seem to think their # don't stink. I don't understand it especially since they are not helping us any by reducing the price of oil. Saudi is a corrupt government and I don't trust them at all.

he cant produce a 60% figure because he made it up.

Here's the jist of it the way i see this topic

1.) Saudi Arabai are crooks and thieves. That can be proven by the enormously high gas prices, and them doing nothing about it (and it is them whom are responsible) But - if we attack them for it, we're toast. Its called watching your own ass. "We've awaken a sleeping giant" was uttered by some Japanese commander after pearl harbor. Sleeping giant is right. America waits for its opportunity and then BLAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thats what we do. What else should we do? Play footsie with ahmenijad?

2.) While the saudis are crooks and bastards - they are not hostile. Iran is hostile and if you argue that point - someone needs to kick you in the ass. Iran threatens nuclear domination of Israel and condemns their very way of life. Israel just defends its self.

The only reason people like you argue with people like us (conservatives) on topics like this is because you refuse to take a stand with us, against our common enemy. You'd rather let Ahmenijad give you the reach around and a kiss on the neck.

Except that when he's done exploiting your moral fraility - he'd rather kill you just like he'd love to kill me.

And the American government is ... what again...??

What a ridiculous statement.

You're right, I did make it up. What I meant to say was 45%. My fault.

New York Post


The kingdom of Saudi Arabia has found itself in the news lately; a recent article in The LA Times reported that Saudi citizens comprise 45 percent of the foreign fighters in Iraq. Half of the suicide bombings are carried out by Saudi citizens, and of the 135 foreign fighters in American detention facilities, half are Saudi. This should function as a red warning light to American officials. But thus far, it hasn't. On July 27, The New York Times reported that some elements in Saudi Arabia are giving financial aid to Sunni groups involved in the Iraqi insurgency.

Is this supposed to be your idea of some sort of a witty reply?

Your sly brain dead comment is just the same old tired liberal propaganda. You don't even know why YOU think the American government is corrupt.



What a ridiculous statement.

It is, so please stop making them.
Pathetic!

Even if Iran is providing money and weapons to fighters in Iraq ... do you not think America would be doing the same if we had an aggressor in Canada and Mexico? It's in their best interest to do such.

How exactly is the good ol US of A not corrupt?

Torture, controlled mass media, unconstitutional wars, the list goes on and on. Our votes don't even count anymore. There are millions of people probably going to vote for Ron Paul and we are not going to hear anything about it. Better yet how did Bush get in twice? I couldn't find a single person that voted for Bush the second time around.

So how exactly is the US not corrupt?

Don't forget Corporate Lobbyist - a.k.a.: the slime of politics.

One only has to look at the corporations that the heads of this administration align themselves with, then take a look at who's contacting all the government projects (from the wars that they've started) overseas to confirm the corruption. Bush and Cheney make millions from these. Cheney has to be the most blatant example with Halliburton and also Brown & Root.

Don't you just hate it when people are different and disagree with you?
Don't you just want to invade their country?
Don't you just want to massacre them into submission?

Of course, opening yourself to listening to their concerns would be a sign of weakness. Who gives a hairy rats arse, really, about them? They're wrong! You are right, by gum! You must maintain a solid front because heaven forbid that you compromise even a little, act peacefully, set an example of how to behave in the world theater by bringing people together to celebrate their connections and similarities.
Are you kidding? That's sissy, communism! By God, if any of them pinko's come near you and start spouting peace drivel, well, we'll assasinate their characters and call em stupid!

Better to maintain the persona you've developed: You must act like the world's spoiled child! If you don't get your way, blow the others away!

Ahh yes thanks for reminding me. How could I forget the corporations that control our nation. Everything they control everything. Maybe that's why I can't afford healthcare or medication.


I still don't see how anyone could still agree with all the things that this government is doing to us.

I would like to see some proof as to how Iran is an enemy of the US. I have not seen any threats from them made to America, if I have missed them, please show them to me. Maybe you can also show me where it has been stated that they would like to kill you. I am hoping you won't use Israel as any kind of proof, because that really has no bearing on the US.

I get a real kick out of people who will excuse Saudi Arabia of their abhorent human rights record just because they sell you oil. The double standard shown by the US government on these kinds of things is completely ridiculous.


You'd rather let Ahmenijad give you the reach around and a kiss on the neck.


I also don't think things like that need to be part of the conversation.

The U.S. does more good in the world than any other country. Your so called corruption list is nothing more than your twisted view of things and is in no way is grounded in reality.

HAHHAHA. Yeah, continue to believe in the system. Sooner or later, you'll be a victim of it.
Seriously, you probably are the 30% brain deads who will support the government no matter what they do. They could rape children on national TV and you would deny it.

It doesn't matter, they already done something worse... legalise torture of childrens. That's sick shiat. But I know you will deny it, even if everybody knows that the US do torture and torture children.

Your problem seems to be that you cannot go past your patriotism. Remember, the president is NOT the US, the only thing that is patriotic is to support the CONSTITUTION and those who supports it. Most in congress, senate and white house don't support it at all, they go against it full force.

Umm.....no. Unlike yourself, I enjoy a good debate.


Don't you just want to invade their country?

Who's country? What are you talking about now?


Don't you just want to massacre them into submission?

Again, who?


Of course, opening yourself to listening to their concerns would be a sign of weakness.

Are you talking about Iran? Hate to burst your bubble, but the U.S. has for years been talking with Iran. Then we gave the Europeans a chance. Nothing came from all attempts so now it's time to pay. If you cannot take the heat, get out of the kitchen. If Iran wants to play with the big boys, then they cannot complain when they get hurt.

Ok, I will. You act like these times are something new. America has always had it's ups and downs and has always come out of it stronger. I bet that does not make you happy right?

Please provide a link for that figure or is that another made up number to help support your lame attempt at making a point. Let me make up one......you are probably one of the 30% brain dead liberals who cannot think for themselves and spew the same old tired talking points.

In one breath you say how terrible the government is and they cannot do anything right, then in your next breath you want more government and more socialism like universal healthcare.

As a world power we are given the responsibility to make sure all other countries remain free and safe. Now that being said - if a certain country threatens another country - then it is our duty to make sure things go well. We are to fight for the weak and frail, and defend ourselves when needed.

here's a few FACTS for you

1.) earlier in this post i asked you liberals to give examples of which particular freedoms are being stripped from you. You failed to produce a single one

2.) WhatTheory has asked you to provide examples of why you think our govt is corrupt, and you provide terrorist propaganda.

3.) The war in iraq IS a constitutional war, how is it not? Congress voted to go to war, the president decided to go to war. What you liberal hippies have forced yourselves to forget is that the US govt issued Sadaam a warning to force him to allow weapons inspectors inside iraq. For weeks we deliberated....giving Sadaam time to think it over, then the ultimadum came to do it or else.

He chose or else. We attacked Iraq with operation shock and awe.

You dont remember that though - because it disproves everything you stand for.

Congress signed a declaration of war - so explain to me how this war is "unconstitutional". And since you can't explain that, then do us all a favor and quit using it. Saying this war is unconstitutional is like saying 9/11 was an inside job.

The cia said Iran stopped producing WMD years ago! Why not trust a billion dollar agency? And what kind of talking have the europeans done?

Personally I find it sick that no one has the guts to stand up to america other than china and russia. Maybe you guys should pick a fight with them instead of "small targets of opportunity". I mean really its pathetic!

If your #1 prove it by fighting a title fight not beating up a small retarded child!!!!!!!!!!
