    Like Washington's other main Middle Eastern ally, Israel, the Saudis fear that President Barack Obama has in the process allowed mutual enemies to gain an upper hand.

    The Saudis now fear Obama may be tempted to thaw ties with Tehran by striking a deal to expand inspections of its atomic sites in return for allowing Iranian allies to go on dominating Arab countries such as Lebanon, Syria and Iraq. That such a bargain has never been publicly mooted from within the Obama administration has not stopped Saudis voicing their concerns.

    "I am afraid in case there is something hidden," said Abdullah al-Askar, chairman of the foreign affairs committee in Saudi Arabia's advisory parliament, the Shoura Council. "If America and Iran reach an understanding it may be at the cost of the Arab world and the Gulf states, particularly Saudi Arabia."

    If Hussein is more than likely Sunni, then wouldn't that mean that the Saudis are Shiite?

    Obama not only looks more and more like a Muslim, but a Shi'ite Muslim which is the mortal enemy of the Saudis. Obama is really screwing things up in the middle East.

    You see that would have been the same answer I had under our last POTUS. I don't change stances every time we change Presidents

    The Saudis keep food on your table dude. Oil is food, because without it we don't have the fuel to do crap on our farms. Besides that what the hell did they do to deserve such unwarranted vitriol? Are you for Iran getting nukes? Neither is Saudi Arabia.

    The UN does set Obama's agenda, that is a fact. Carbon emissions regulations started in the UN under the original Kyoto Treaty..

    Yeah but dadx is now very concerned about offending our allies. It has nothing to do with Obama though, it's just an honest change of heart by dadx.

    The Saudis make money off of oil, they don't do squat for me. I can grow my own crops if it comes to it. Screw the whole bunch of them with respect to us setting foreign policy That is exactly what you would be saying if a Republican was POTUS and we both know it. Don't forget I have been on this site for a long time.

    What did they do? Go check where the majority of 9/11 attackers come from. Check what their particular brand of exported Islam is.

    You're right he was doing it with the King of Saudi Arabia. Want me to find a picture of them holding hands?

    The UN is already setting our policy... haven't you noticed? The 9/11 attackers are/were citizens of that country. The government had nothing to gain by helping them, which they did not. The Saudis invest heavily in the U.S.A..

    Not really, I just don't want Iran having nukes and Hassan is playing Hussein like a fiddle.

    Just popping through to point out a few things. (And Hall, this isn't directed at you, just transitions nicely into a point I wanted to make.)

    Remember those "Why don't Muslims condemn violence" threads?

    Good. Remember when I pointed out that far and away the largest financial backers of Wahhabism and Salafi thought are the Saudi royal family?

    And remember when I said the criticism was a bit transparent, because anytime anyone does anything that speaks out against or goes against the largest sponsors of extremist Islam in the world, many of those same folks complaining would suddenly be yelling "Oh no, you can't be stabbing our closest friends in the Arab world, the House of Saud to whom we owe so much, in the back"?

    Not saying, just saying... :whistle:

    You can choose to believe that if you want to. Still doesn't mean we kowtow to the Saudis with our foreign policy. Take what they say into consideration, yes, but just as with Israel we need to do what is best for us not them.
