The Saudi Arabia is a Backwards, Laughable Shithole Thread

Side issue:

 

Russia and China’s external adventurism can at least partially be explained as an effort to re-channel their publics’ dissatisfaction with the quality of governance.

 

Someone unintentionally outed US domestic policy, methinks.

Oh hi Americans.  We're Saudi Arabia, we are your friends:

David Brin's deconstruction from FB:

 

There are times when your adversaries offer words that you want everyone to read. Saudi Arabia's Ambassador to the United States, Abdullah Al-Saud, published this missive, proclaiming his nation purely innocent of fomenting Sunni-Muslim anti-western fury and terrorism.

“Saudi Arabia has been falsely accused by some commentators of promoting extremism. Don't they realize that extremists are as much or more of a threat to Saudi Arabia than to any other part of the world? If critics took the time to look at the facts, they would see that Saudi Arabia has and will continue to lead all nations in combating the mindset that foments violent extremism.”

Seriously, read it all, knowing that Saudi schoolbooks are so vehemently anti-western that they are state-secrets — you can be imprisoned for showing one to a foreigner. The Wahhabist (Hanbali) madrassas that Saudi oil wealth imposed on most Sunni nations teach not only Sharia purity but irredentist hated of all things western and nostalgic yearnings for caliphate.

Now, the kingdom’s leaders profess to be SHOCKED that Saudi aristocrat Osama bin Laden and dozens of graduates of those same schools perpetrated the 9/11 and Paris attacks and launched ISIS, eager to push the caliphate-restoration program faster than the calmer princes had mapped-out?

Manipulative oligarchs in the USA — many of them very closely tied to the House of Saud — have run into the same problem over here. The populist madness that they deliberately stirred through American madrassas like Clear Channel and Fox News has metastacized out of their control. And both groups of delusional oligarchs keep telling themselves how very, very smart they are.

This is why I wrote that scene in Existence, showing actually intelligent aristocrats trying to figure out a path the future. Evil pursuers of neo-feudalism, at least my portrayed plutocrat characters were smart enough to see the most blatant mistakes that ruined feudal states across 6000 years, and sought to set up systems to pierce their own delusions.

Read this awful drivel and laugh until you cry. What this article shows you - as does every action of America’s right wing “establishment” - is smug men whose flatterers had told them they were oh so clever, with a cunning plan. But whose principal trait will be historically recorded as deep, deep stupidity.

      Nice meme, why destroy someone's feeling? Why do you even start flame war to ruin the already bad Japanese tech tree? Why don't you sign up a partnership program with Gaijin? She is trying her very best supporting the few of us playing Japanese tank tech tree? I don't care if she made Ho-Ri up or not, none of us want to care about this. We want something good as Russian tanks in War Thunder, and the answer is the Ho-Ri production.  If you say that you have 100 picture of Ho-Ri or 5 video of it, that will be very convincing. But the reality is that your just another Chinese that want to rost Koreans. Sadly you and your Hon Kong are just same person that sits in front of your computer 24/7 without any research on Japanese tank.
      Also if you dare changing our beloved Ho-Ri's slope front armor into flat. EVERYONE in the Japanese tech tree will bloody murder you when you sleep.

      (Washington, DC) --  Today, the Saudi Ambassador to the United States Adel bin Ahmed Al-Jubeir hosted a press conference at the Royal Embassy of Saudi Arabia and issued the following statement:

      “Saudi Arabia has launched military operations in Yemen, as part of a coalition of over ten countries in response to a direct request from the legitimate government of Yemen. The operation will be limited in nature, and designed to protect the people of Yemen and its legitimate government from a takeover by the Houthis. A violent extremist militia. The Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries tried to facilitate a peaceful transition of government in Yemen, but the Houthis have continuously undercut the process by occupying territory and seizing weapons belonging to the government. In spite of repeated efforts by the GCC, G10 countries and the Special Representative of the U.N. Secretary General to seek a peaceful way to implement the GCC initiatives and the outcomes of the national dialogue that define the political transition in Yemen, the Houthis have reneged on every single agreement they have made and continue their quest to take over the country by violent means. They captured the capital city of Sana’a, they placed the legitimate president, prime minister and cabinet members under house arrest, they seized the security services and they continue to expand their occupation of the country.”

      “In a letter dated March 7, 2015, President Hadi of Yemen made a request of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz to convene a conference under the auspices of the GCC to which all Yemeni political factions seeking to preserve security and stability in Yemen would be invited. The Houthis rejected this invitation and continued their violent onslaught in Yemen to the point where they were threatening to occupy the city of Aden, which had become the temporary capital for the legitimate government of President Hadi after he was able to escape from Sana’a. In a letter, dated March 24, 2015, President Hadi requested, based on the principle of self-defense, enshrined in Article 51 of the U.N. Charter, as well as in the Arab League charter’s collective defense mechanism, a request for immediate support – by all means necessary – including military intervention to protect Yemen and its people from the continued Houthi aggression and to support it in fighting al Qaeda and ISIL.”

      “Based on the appeal from President Hadi, and based on the Kingdom’s responsibility to Yemen and its people, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, along with its allies within the GCC and outside the GCC, launched military operations in support of the people of Yemen and their legitimate government.”

      “May God Almighty protect the brave soldiers and may He grant them success in their noble mission.”
