Is there any doubt about this effed up relationship we have with the Saudis? They’re now threatening to unleash Jihadists if the UK doesn’t back off a corruption investigation.
Prince Bandar, the head of the Saudi national security council, and son of the crown prince, was alleged in court to be the man behind the threats to hold back information about suicide bombers and terrorists. He faces accusations that he himself took more than £1bn in secret payments from the arms company BAE.
I remember President Bush saying “You’re with us, or you’re with the terrorists”
Well I guess that’s true unless you’re armed with Nukes (Pakistan) or Oil (Saudis)
I will rejoice the day we don’t need them anymore. It’s disgusting to have to cater to a culture just because they supply so much oil, no matter how much they violate basic human rights.
Saudi Arabia’s rulers threatened to make it easier for terrorists to attack London unless corruption investigations into their arms deals were halted, according to court documents revealed yesterday.
Previously secret files describe how investigators were told they faced “another 7/7″ and the loss of “British lives on British streets” if they pressed on with their inquiries and the Saudis carried out their threat to cut off intelligence.
