weren't u mad about us getting closer to Russia? what u said is basically the same thing.
haven't you ever heard keep your friends close and your enemies closer? cutting ties with quasi-ally has no up side.
I believe Saudi Arabia and we have far different interests. They shouldnt be close to us
You need to balance the benifets and any actual advancment for yourself, there is really no argument to be had here as it's shearly an opinion.
I'm not really talking about Sadia anymore. I'm talking about our idea sitting on the sidelines or trying to help. idk on Saudi I don't know the situation well enough to make an informed opinion on that.
Do u know Saudi Arabia follows sharia law.. People living there are mostly Muslims... Muslims are not against sharia law and neither against their govt... What will be the result if you go and start a war with Saudi... Do the people need it?? Unnecessarily so many people will be killed... If someone does not want your help you are not going to cram your help to him
so u would rather let that person die or be seriously injured because he was prideful?
first step separate second figure out what's happening third if I know them and they allow it make a choice if not give my opinion. though that's diff. with countries. u will always know the situation in their case
same could be said with the other. I'm sorry for the innocent that got harmed. I would prefer to avoid war if possible but I know sometimes war is required for now.
first you need to know of the person wants your help. if they don't then it is none of your business.
secondly what is your help going to cause? if your idea of help is shooting the attacker in the face and it turns out to be a family argument, you are now a murderer.
thirdly you need to learn to balance the consequences of your "help" with the good. America thought communism was bad and people shouldn't do that. so they bombed millions of innocent people in Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos. the harm vastly outweighed the "good".
we are trying at least. if a guy was being beaten on the border from Canada and America would u not try to help? or will u still be on the sidelines?
History I think your usually an idiot, however I agree
@thereal. I don't think you understand that what Hitler wanted was to be the dominant power in Europe. it is America that tried to take over the world.
@neveralone you really need to pay closer attention to more recent history. America has intervened in many conflicts since WW2 that it had no business being involved in. it is exactly that attitude that you are the "world police" that gets you into trouble. you don't have the right to unilaterally intervene in foreign countries.
so what's the difference? people are being stomped on and u want to sit on the sidelines? that's what we did and that was obviously a mistake. every time we stay out of a war. everyone gets hurt. so u tell me. if u have the power to stop bad things from happening would u sit on the sidelines or do something about it?
i dont think neveralone gets the fact that hitler wanted total domination of the world.
reasonable...unless that country means I'll will to u. America made a mistake when we took that same thought for Hitler
I don't think our govt would either be interested in starting a war with a country where the citizens don't have any problem
that's depends on ur gov.
What will happen if you won't support it... There are so many people within the country who support their govt.. U cannot really do anything..
Saudi Arabia throws gays off buildings, opresses women, and performs public executions so why would anyone support them
well then u could go either way depending on ur country's feelings toward both countries. and who's in the right or wrong if hostilities are there and if they are physical.
It is neither to my country
idk if it is or not just giving an example
I mean the country being hostile to urs.
N it's not towards me
if it's hostile toward u.
Yeah of course if the people don't have any problem with the govt who are we to call it as hostile... There is no need to be so judgemental
probably. there are always some people who don't like their government. does it matter for the purposes of this debate?
Do the people living in Saudi have any problem with the govt??
and even if all of that is true and they are secretly supporting ISIS that doesn't make them a hostile government. the US funded and armed jihadis in Afghanistan to undermine the Russians. does that make them the enemy of everyone those jihadis killed? because that would be alot of countries, including themselves.
lots of countries do similar things. international diplomacy is extremely complicated. trying to dumb it down to hostile or friendly means you will never be able to understand it.
all that website said was that an unconfirmed email said that someone in the government suspected the Saudis were finding ISIS. no one can confirm the email is genuine. and even if it is there's no actual evidence that person is correct.
that article doesn't prove anything at all.
yep they suck. there's definitely going to need a talking to.
you support hillary right? then its for you.
please provide any evidence that the Saudi government funds ISIS. to my knowledge there is none. they do fund mosques. but you could look at it as they are charitable. they are helping those of their faith who are living in an area that is hostile to their beliefs. that doesn't make the Saudi government hostile to America.
ok from blue rays points I would say they suck
they are funding ISIS.
its appropriate to say that Saudi is a hostile country. Saudi Arabia is a barbaric country from which the ideologies of jihad and wahabism arrived ( The one's which ISIS believes in). KSA funds over 80% of mosques in americas, they want muslims to stay in american soil but they dont want them to become americans. Instead of funding mosques , why dont they build schools and hospitals in the US?
I'm not sure hostile is the right word. the problem is that you assume countries can all be classified in black and white terms. it is a result of the cold war. the American government painted all countries as allies of freedom or the axis of evil.
the Saudi Arabian interests and American interests overlap in certain areas and are antithetical in certain areas. saying they are hostile isn't accurate. saying they are a close ally isn't accurate either.
