While in Virginia teaching helicopter maintenance for the Army, I (and quite a few buddies of mine) taught classes that included a number of foreign students from "ally" nations that own 64s, Saudi and Kuwait among them. I have seen and heard of them getting up to all sorts of shenanigans while they were stateside - mostly drunken partying and strippers, but also reports of drugs and hookers, and one time a Kuwaiti student inquired of me how he could go about negotiating the purchase of a 16-year-old high school girl that had come through our hangar on a class field trip.

The Saudis are ISIS with oil.

Er...wait a minute. ISIS has some oil too...so they're not so worthy of American bombs are they? Perhaps if ISIS had as much oil as the Saudis we wouldn't bomb them at all.

Two members of Saudi Arabia's 'virtue police' are arrested for 'chasing girls' after footage emerges of a girl crying as she is pushed to the the floor by an officer
Quote:
Two girls angered morality police for not covering their faces properly
But even after they complied, the men took place - capturing one girl
The moment they shoved her to the ground was filmed by a passerby
Video has shocked the country - and now two men have been arrested
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...r-officer.html


Horrifying: The so-called 'virtue police' were filmed violently
pushing a young woman to the ground after having chased her
for 'half an hour'. The men have now been arrested by Saudi
officials

A court in Saudi Arabia has sentenced a man to 10 years in prison and 2,000 lashes for expressing his atheism in hundreds of social media posts.

The report carried in Al-Watan says the 28-year-old man admitted to being an atheist and refused to repent, saying that what he wrote reflected his own beliefs and that he had the right to express them. The report did not name the man.

Britain's flashiest tourist: Saudi billionaire flies his £1m-plus fleet of GOLD supercars to London so he can get about while on holiday
Quote:
Fleet of impressive vehicles includes a £370,000 Mercedes G63 and a £220,000 Bentley, which are covered in gold
A £350,000 Rolls-Royce and a £350,000 Lamborghini Aventador SV have also been transported to the capital city
Cars were spotted in Kensington, London, over the Bank Holiday weekend and signal start of the supercar season
Comes after Kensington council banned motorists from revving their engines and causing obstructions in borough
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...n-holiday.html


Britain's flashiest tourist, who is thought to be from Saudi Arabia,
arrived in the capital this week with a fleet of gold cars worth more
than £1million. Above, his gold £350,000 Rolls-Royce Phantom Coupe
and Lamborghini Aventador, also worth £350,000



The vehicles include a £370,00 Mercedes six-wheel off-roader
(pictured), which looks more suited to the sand dunes than the
congested streets of Kensington


What a recruiting tool...

Not to worry, their influence will wane soon enough because their quasi-monopoly position with oil will not last. They are already on the return into nothingness and irrelevancy.

No worries. They don't need Zika. MERS is happily perking away, with a slow but steady increase in cases. A bridge to Egypt will just widen the at risk population. Because after all, the world needs the spread of more potentially fatal viral illnesses for which there aren't any vaccines.

You are making us look bad!

Be nice! Saudi Arabia strips its super strict religious police of powers of arrest and orders it to be 'kinder and gentler' in enforcing Islamic rules
Quote:
The religious police are also known as the Haia force, or Mutawaa
They enforce the country's strict interpretation of Islam
Also patrol shops to make sure they are shuttered during prayer times
There are roughly 5,000 Haia force members in the country
New committee will provide suggestions to the Mutawaa president
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...us-police.html


Saudi Arabia has stripped its controversial religious police(above)
of their powers of arrest and has urged them to act 'kindly and
gently' in enforcing Islamic rules
