Reader comment on item: What Riyadh Buys [in Washington]

Submitted by Allan Turk (United States), Dec 15, 2002 at 19:32

Why is everyone acting so astonished ? As though we did not know this. Do you think Osama Bin Laden is the only one Saudi Arabia has tried to buy off? This is their modus operandi -- they try to buy everyone off !!! Friends and foes !!! The only way to negate this power is to 1-gain control of Iraqi oil fields or 2- start creating a synthetic alternative to oil. ( in WWII we had the same problem with Rubber. We were forced to create synthetic rubber and we did !)
Come on America wake up !
