Poor Mr. Ahmed

Reader comment on item: Might the Saudis Blow Up Their Oil Infrastructure?

Submitted by Octavio Johanson (Italy), May 13, 2005 at 09:53

Dear Mr. Ahmed,

Do you really think the Saudis are so clever?

I agree with you that Saudi Arabia shall not be bombed under any circumstances, but for different reasons.

Clever? If they are so clever, then why are they over-reliant on foreign workers? From Japanese and Australian engineers to Philippino and Pakistani workers, everybody who works in Saudi Arabia seems to be foreign. Indian computer technicians, British nurses, you name it.

And, then, it is worthy remembering that Saudi billionaires go to enjoy freedom in London and Paris. Are they clever? Are you sure, Mr. Ahmed?
