re: #60 RogueOne

Not to pick on you but I keep seeing that statement. What exactly are we supposed to do about countries that have laws like these? If we stopped dealing with everyone that had laws we didn’t like, it would get lonely pretty quickly.

True. However, we have a very close relationship with the Saudis that involves completely disregarding their hideous human rights record, and the fact that the largest terrorist attack carried out on U.S. soil was staffed by their citizens.

I know why. And most days I can sort of take a deep breath and cope with it. But it leaves a bitter taste when people act as though we went into Afghanistan because of the Taliban’s abuses, or as though Saddam’s torture chambers had just suddenly come to out attention,and we HAD to do something. Or the Saudis take back terrorists, give them a stern lecture, and let them go…and we, well, we wish they hadn’t. But are we gonna invade over it? Hell no.

The Saudis. The oil states. Ladies and gentleman, our allies.
