Could this be a sign that Saudi Arabia is next on our hit list?

I'm glad that one of the American administrations has finally realized that having our main Middle East base in a country thats one of the biggest supporters of anti-west terrorism is probably not a good thing.

Now I just wonder, why the fuck did we sink like, 100Mil into building a brand spanking new air base there?

Have you heard the term, 'Military Industrial Complex?' How about 'Political Cronyism?'


--------------------
To call humans 'rational beings' does injustice to the term, 'rational.'  Humans are capable of rational thought, but it is not their essence.  Humans are animals, beasts with complex brains.  Humans, more often than not, utilize their cerebrum to rationalize what their primal instincts, their preconceived notions, and their emotional desires have presented as goals - humans are rationalizing beings.

Yeah. We spent some insane amount of money a few years back to build a Combined Air Operations Center south of Riyadh. I'll post a link when I can find the elusive little thing....

Heres a quote from the International Herald Tribune.....Not paste-able..Damn copyrighters...

The United States has approximately 5,500 troops based at Prince Sultan, a sprawling tract of desert that was little more than an air strip during the Gulf War, when Americans began spending hundreds of millions of dollars to transform it into one of its largest bases of operations in the Middle East.

The true reason for the move is because the US has it's own Middle Eastern country now.

Its about fucking time we left. We protect their resources and they finance terror, but do we criticize them? Do we say anything about Wahhabism? Do we call them out on human rights viollations? How about the abscence of religious freedom? How about the plight of women and their abscence of rights? I think they are a much worthier of a "hit" than Iraq, there are actual reasons to attack them other than oil, which makes me wonder who might be next, because Syria doesnt have that much oil.

No, Saddam Hussein most certainly DID invade Saudi Arabia...For about a day, before he got his ass whooped....i think the deepest penetration was 8 miles?
