Our #1 Friend In the Arab World Orders Medieval Justice - and We're Surprised the Arabs Don't Like Us!

When Thomas Jefferson insisted on "entangling alliance with none" in reference to his contemporary European empires ruled by inbred and incompetent aristocrats with 0 accountability - maybe he was onto something?

Saudi Arabia is stuck in the Dark Ages - in terms of its government structure, wealth distribution, treatment of women and minorities, and apparently implementation of justice as well. Our money and influence is what keeps that social order from collapsing/evolving; and THAT's the kind of foreign policy that brings planes into our skyscrapers. 15 of the 19 hijackers were Saudis - NOT Afgans nor Iraqis.
