    I need to apologize. I was wrong. 15 of the 19 9/11 terrorists were Saudi citizens, not 19 of 20 that I posted earlier.

    I am appalled that this act of radical Islamic terrorism has not been labeled as such by the Pentagon or the administration (or am I only supposed to be pissed about that when a Democrat is in office?)

    Seven countries listed in Trump's "travel ban"...

    Venezuela
    Libya
    Syria
    Iran
    Somalia
    Yemen
    North Korea

    Why wasn't Saudi Arabia included?

    Why? Like it or not. The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Is an ally.  Our Military has been training with them, sometimes fighting and selling arms to them for decades.  I dont like it either, while in uniform and had both good experiences with the student Brigade where I was stationed.  It may change but it will be a slow change

    When our ally's citizens go around murdering thousands of our citizens in our own country out of hatred, and their leaders chop people up for speaking out against them, Alpha's green wet dream starts to look more like a huge national security issue. Maybe Obama wasn't so stupid after all?

    The really difficult part is that over many years thousands of their Military have attended our Military schools and only a few have done anything wrong.
    Our Mikitary have broken the rules and caused trouble in the KSA.
    I dont know where to draw the line

    Didn't Saudi Arabia kick most of our military out within 48 hours of Saddam Hussein being captured? They may officially be an ally but they are not our true friends.

    No arguement there
