    As some of you may know, Saudi Arabia once again has reaffirmed why it is a terrorist state whose government's members should be lined up and shot, Romanov style. 

    They beheaded a 16 year old boy for sending WhatsApp messages about protesting governmental abuses. 

    Each of the so called "terrorism" suspects were tortured; their confessions came from duress, and the mass execution is reminiscent of Soviet "great purges".  

    And yet, the Trump administration sells weapons to them.

    Aren't we petroleum sufficient (independant) right now? Why do we need Saudi Oil? It's not like Saudi is doing anything to keep Iran in check either, despite being mostly Sunni.

    The Saudis are as bad as Iran, if not slightly worse, in my book.  

    While I would like to see the Iranian government removed, I'd prefer to see every member of the Saudi government driven into the sea.

    MBS deserves a fate worse than Gaddaffi.

    We can easily acquire cheap oil from other sources like Iraq. We don't need Saudi like we used to for low fuel prices.

    Yet the western apologist for Islam  will have us believe that because woman can now drive cars (with the permission of their husband, father or brother, of course) that Islam is reforming and dragging itself into the 21st century. The Muslim Sultan of Brunei has just reaffirmed ancient Islamic dictates too.

    "Brunei enacts new penal code as sultan calls for 'stronger' Islam
    New penal code imposes death penalty for rape, adultery, sodomy, robbery and introduces public flogging."

    "It also introduces public flogging as punishment for abortion as well as amputation for theft and criminalises exposing Muslim children to the beliefs and practices of any religion other than Islam". And the death penalty for insulting or defaming the Prophet Muhammad.

    Yes, they really are reforming and modernising Islam, aren't they.

    It may have something to do with refining. I think it is that SA have a better quality of oil and needs less refining where as the US produces more crude. Then there is Light crude and Heavy crude. Light crude produces more gasoline/petrol and diesel than Heavey. There is much less crap to filter in Light than Heavy.  

    But Saudi Arabia is running out and are said to be  in a panic. No oil will send them back to the dark ages leaving them with have to trade for new technology. They don't produce anything else to my knowledge.

    Yah but Saudi isn't the only nation with cheap oil. Iraq's oil is sweet crude and cheap.Venezuela oil used to be cheap until the government overemployed the industry with 100,000 busyjobs.

    First, above that was supposed to read " No oil will send them back to the dark ages leaving them without anything to trade for new technology. 

    And I agree with what you say concerning SA oil not being the only oil available to the USA.

    The degree to which progressives (not Liberals) act as apologists for Islam's crimes against humanity in the name of so called "multiculturalism" or any other stupid postmodern idea is enough to make any thinking person vomit in the street in repulsion.

    Progressives are moral cowards, as are neocons on Saudi Arabia; albeit for different reasons.  Progressives want to bitch about Western cultural imperialism or other nonsense, when people like me talk about forcing the Middle East into modernity.  Neocons bitch about the impact to oil prices.

    Any country that beheads a 16 year old boy and a 19 year old boy for exchanging WhatsApp messages discussing a pro-democracy protest is a country that needs to be purged from this earth.

    When MBS meets the same fate as Gaddaffi, I will be satisfied.  Saddam Hussein didn't even execute children.

    I would rather buy oil from a sissified wannabe french boy (Troudeau) than terrorists (Saudis).

    Israel won't nuke Saudi Arabia, because they need to keep playing Saudi Arabia against Iran.  However, Israel is and has been trying to provoke a war between Saudi Arabia and Iran for years.  Sadly, they have failed.

    In an ideal world, Iran marches across Ryad, takes the Saudi "king" and MBS hostage, hangs them from a crane, and then Israel goes in and levels whatever remains of Saudi Arabia after the Saudi military has bought everything the US was willing to sell them... in vain. 

    Then, weak and destitute, Saudi Arabia can return to the bedouin shithole it was before oil was discovered there. 

    All those Saudis who want to leave and join the modern world shall be free to do so.  All those who want to live by wahabist Islam can be lined up and shot.

    They have no intention of changing or reforming Islam. And those who believe that there is anything such as "moderate islam"  really need to study Islamic culture a lot closer.

    Obama traded with Saudi Arabia too.  We should get our oil from pro human rights countries.  I want to lead by example, but I don't know how.  Maybe I can only buy oil from companies that don't use Saudi oil.

    Google parent Alphabet and Saudi-owned-Aramco are in talks to build a tech hub in Saudi Arabia: WSJ [LINK]

    The giant going public is Saudi Aramco, the national oil company of Saudi Arabia. It is expected to have a $2 trillion value, more valuable that ExxonMobil XOM +0%, Apple AAPL +0% or Alibaba . This week Aramco named J.P. Morgan , Morgan Stanley MS +0% and HSBC as the lucky underwriters for its offering. [LINK]

    American and European corporations are going ga-ga for Aramco's massive profits.
