    All but one of the 9-11 attackers were Suadis. The Bush administration had all the Bin Ladens and other Saudis in the US flown home when all other aircraft were grounded..Now, once more, they show their friendship for Bush and US.

    They know better and so do we. Times are coming where our dependence on them is going to disappear, then who will be their customers? India, China? Not such a comforting thought really. Ever wonder what would happen to someone trying to strong arm or back out on a deal with China? Think they'll run to the international court? Yeah...right!
    What do you think China's military build up is all about?

    Are you KIDDING me? I think the first time I saw this posted was about 6 1/2 years ago.

    I DO appreciate you proving my point that all the left does is beat dead horses though. However, this is about the most blatantly obvious one I've seen yet.

    You going to do the "Bush's Grandaddy was a Nazi" one too?

    FYI, there's already a thread posting this article as a topic.

    So you think that the Saudis are our true friends?

    Guess you missed this part of your post, huh?

    The Saudi oil minister, Ali al-Naimi, announced that the kingdom decided on May 10 to raise production by 300,000 barrels at the request of customers, including the United States. He said that increase was sufficient.

    What side is THAT, Col? I'm on MY side and make no fucking mistake about it.

    Wahabbism is an extremist sect of Sunni Islam. They preach hatred of the west and the US in particular as much or more than the Shia do. You know anything relatively current?

    The fact is, you politically correct leftwing goobers living in your denial refuse to address the enemy for who and what it is. Extremist Muslims are our enemy. They drive their trains every bit as much as the nutjob extremists are allowed to drive the trains here.

    The majority are too busy trying to earn a living and make life better for their familes while y'all run your damned sucks.

    We buy virtually NO oil from the Middle East. Almost ALL our imports come from Canada, Mexico, and Venezuela. Chavez is our real enemy.

    As for the Saudis, I have no idea why Bush would even ask them to increase production. OPEC is pumping AT CAPACITY already!!! There isn't anything they can do about it.
