in response to reader comment: Forgive me for my hardness!

Saudis enjoy more freedom than those of us who have cameras watching our every move, even in our bedrooms? What Saudi anti-Western propoganda shows have you been watching? It would be funny, but you actually believe that, don´t you. Sad.

As far as the Iraqis and Afgans are concerned...most of the 50 million NOW free people of those countries, polls show they see a much brighter future for their countries now, and they signal that with actual votes that count, and by girls being educated and actual human resources of the people now being used, and with their incomes and standard of living skyrocketing...and most importantly, for the future generations of those people who will live theeir lives with choice and freedom to live productively and without the heavy hand of evil dictators or Talibani mullahs and psychos hanging over their heads like a dark cloud.

As for the Saudis, where the hell would you be and where are you going to be when we don´t buy your oil, or if/when the world doesn´t need it. You got nothing. No creativity, no production, no research, no inventiveness, nothing you can do on your own - anything of worth that you use for you benefit comes from thee West and JEWS and CHRISTIANS and WESTERNERS who discovered it, invented it, improved it, created it, etc, etc. Saudis, and Islamic nations in general...nothing but oil that the Americans found and extracted, and Wahabbi religion that the rest of the world loathes, and a 7th Century view of the world that keeps you in the deepést rut on the planet .
