Repeat & reap rewards

Reader comment on item: Government for Sale [to the Saudis]

Submitted by Jack Ajzenberg (Canada), Dec 7, 2002 at 06:35

I suspect that the repetition ad nauseum, of what are clearly obvious, evident facts on the ground regarding Saudi duplicity, will eventually permeate through granite veils erected by men & women of good & benign conscience around the pervasive treachery, barbarism, oppression, corruption & primitivism that are the bedrock cornerstones of the Saudi ruling oligarchy's version of core family & societal values.

That "power in the hands of the few corrupts" is no surprise; that "power wielded by the corrupt, totally corrupts" will also not shake up any one's worlds.

However, giving Saudis mass media venues for vociferous, righteously indignant denials, obfuscations & misinformation woven by Western spin quacks trading image for poisonous Saudi money is & will always be galling beyond measure.
