Reader comment on item: [Saudi Arabia:] Not Friend or Foe

Submitted by Ilene H. Richman (United States), May 15, 2002 at 12:56

It is about time the United States cut its dependence and ties from Saudi Arabia. Let them drink their OIL. We should have the Voice of America station beamed to people in Saudi Arabia. This is a country of "darkness," living in the dark ages. Saudi Arabia keeps its people in darkness, by withholding women their rights, by holding public executions and cutting off the hands of thieves, and by denying basic freedom of the press.

The United States should consider facilitating a climate for overthrowing the dictatorship of the hypocritical princes who gamble in Las Vegas, drink alcohol, have hundreds of women... It is humiliating to have the prince of Saudi Arabia lecture our president when visiting his ranch. The prince should be taught good manners. Now, the prince has called the president "stupid." So has the government of Egypt, who is plotting against Israel after Israel returned the Sinai under pressure...

Saudi Arabia is the enemy and the American people must be indoctrinated against this country, day after day. Wasn't it 15 terrorist Saudi Arabians and 5 terrorist Egyptians who demolished our World Trade Center Buildings and the Pentagon. Wasn't it Saudi Arabia that kept on giving money to Bin Laden, another Saudi Arabian. Wasn't it Saudi Arabia who held a telethon for the families of the suicide murderers of innocent Israeli civilians?...
