The Saudi Arabia is a Backwards, Laughable Shithole Thread

Recommended Posts

More on Sophia, the Saudi 'citizen':  http://uk.businessinsider.com/meet-the-first-robot-citizen-sophia-animatronic-humanoid-2017-10?r=US&IR=T/#hanson-himself-however-believes-that-future-is-much-more-immediate-the-age-of-living-androids-is-among-us-he-told-business-insider-10

 

Quote

Sophia once said it would "destroy humans," but this time around the robot spoke about its desire to live peaceably among humans.

 

 

Guess that's why the Saudis liked her!  ;)

“Will you continue to use cluster weapons in Yemen?” we asked Prince Abdullah Al-Saud, Saudi Arabia’s ambassador to the United States.

“This is like the question, ‘Will you stop beating your wife?’” Al-Saud responded, letting loose a bellowing laugh.

An update on Saudi Arabia's favorite son;

 

 

Since Osama was getting all of his stuff via courier - so we're told - that means some poor bastard was risking his life, underthreat of getting drone striked or captured and interrogated, all so that Osama could rub one out over ass porn?

 

:sicko:

Seems like this could be fun to watch

Holy hell. 11 princes arrested. Including billionaire investor Alwaleed bin Talal.

 

Per that New York Times article, Alwaleed is a "Trump critic" and he trolled Trump's Twitter account during the election. He's also the schmendrick whom Rudy Giuliani refused the $10 million "donation" to 9/11 victims.

 

 

 

 

Hehehehe.

It's an interesting process to watch play out, and this may end up being a large rollback of the extremist sects in Saudi.

Anyone else think that Saudi Arabia is about a hiccup away from direct war with Iran?  The Crown Prince is known for being impatient and doesn't like Iran much.  And neither does a lot of the US Conservative base.

I could see it happening before the end of Trump's 1st term, but not right now. If MbS is that impatient though, who fucking knows. I mean he comes from the place that essentially created ISIS and AQ and is genociding the Yemeni Shia right now so I think anything is on the table, but I don't think his allies (US, UAE, Israel) would green light a war with Iran.

It is a “I’ll believe it when I see it happen.” but on the surface it does look like that’s the direction things are going.

Exciting happenings in Saudi Arabia.

 

Quote

Saudi princes and billionaire businessmen arrested in a power grab earlier this month are being strung up by their feet and beaten by American private security contractors, a source in the country tells DailyMail.com.

 

Not that I am against this, mind.  But WTF is going on?
