Thou shalt not upset the Saudi Royal Family. It just isn’t done. If they get mad, they threaten to do all sorts of nasty things like crash our economy. They’re pissed, allegedly due to a heavily redacted 28 page expose of their activities on 9/11. They’re mad. They’re going do bad things to us. They’ve cowed the President, who will veto any bill requiring that they pay for their alleged duplicity in the slaughter of a few innocent American in the name of their weird version of Islam. This is a country where women aren’t allowed to drive, and must stayed covered up like something out of the Dark Ages. Oh, wait, their religion hasn’t evolved since then. They execute people for being Christians, don’t allow Bibles in their country, and whip poor souls who speak the truth about freedom. They’re also enabling ISIS.
But, we can’t upset them.
