What should we do about this problem?

Update:

Golan89: you are a nasty thing aren't you. just answer the question, if you can...pfft.

Update 2:

Stuart A. Levey, a Treasury undersecretary, told a Senate committee that the Saudi government had not taken important steps to go after those who finance terrorist organizations or to prevent wealthy donors from bankrolling extremism through charitable contributions, sometimes unwittingly.

"Saudi Arabia today remains the location where more money is going to terrorism, to Sunni terror groups and to the Taliban than any other place in the world," Levey said under questioning.

    Absolutely... we've known this all along. America is stuck in a world of contradiction because we need Saudi oil. Bush holds his man hands with the Saudi king like family while members of the royal family support Wahabism, the root of radical Islam. Most of the 9-11 bombers were from this country...

    It is not on the Saudis.... UAE, another oil rich country that support terrorism just helped out bail out two major US banking giants including Citibank... and the US government owes UAE govt millions of dollars.

    Conservatives love to equate Islam with terrorism, but they seem blind to the fact that Saudi Arabia is a Muslim nation that practice hardsher forms of Islam...

    The Saudi Arabian government has executed many al-Qaeda terror suspects and has prevented terrorist attacks on the US embassy there. They have been clear enemies with Osama bin Laden for many years.

    Taking out the Saudi Arabian government would let terrorists take over thew government, burn up the oil fields, and dangerously shift the power in the Middle East.

    Gas would spike up to at least $10.00 a gallon.

    but Georgie says that they are our allies. doesn't matter that 15 out of 19 9/11 terrorists came from there, that they fund terrorism or that they state that when we leave Iraq that they will step in and "help" the new government. Family is family apparently.

    In my opinion, since 15 of the hijackers involved with 9/11, we should stop acting like they are our friends.

    It is common knowledge that Saudi finances terrorist activities.

    do not believe the lies, Seth. The U.S. is the global's best terror employer. Osama bin weighted down has joint economic organisation debts with the Bush family individuals. The Bin weighted down family individuals were on the in easy terms jets flying the day after 9-11. OUT of the U.S.

    Saudi Arabia is also an ally, and they go after terrorists in their borders. They are more familiar with the problem than we are. We should be on board to get involved if they need us, but I don't think that will happen. In the meantime, we are sending them weapons.

    Invade Saudi. Make it our 51st state. Ban all Islamic schools and mosques. And give all drilling right in Saudi to ExxonMobile. Maybe this will help???

    Some people are incapable of believing that the US government and the mainstream media are hiding important facts about terrorism from us.
