A lot of the stories I've been reading/watching on the news is about all these militants and terrorist factions kidnapping or murdering Westerners or non terrorist sympathetic Muslims. The US Embassy has told all Americans to leave Saudi Arabia. And Al Qaeda has urged all Muslims to cease from using all Western forms of transportation. Being an American in Saudi Arabia is like being a white man in Harlem or the Bronx.

Honestly, what chance do these people think they have? Do they think a billion people will treat them like royalty because they're covered in cave sweat and donkey shit?

I do not hate Muslims but I think Middle Eastern countries' forms of government is really screwed up. A government based on religion just doesn't work. They act as if they're governing in the 13th century.

All these terrorist factions, what is their problems with the West? We bombed their families? We're trying to lighten them up a little? I even heard a rumor that the only reason Bin Laden hates the US is because we didn't let him become king of Saudi Arabia or something along those lines.

Ok I can understand they're mad that we bombed their homes, their children, their families. But what pushes it is when they're so poorly organized and equipped that they use everyday things to hurt non military targets. They murder an American in his home in Riyadh. They kill Iraqi officials.

Sorry for the redundancy of the topic but I'm tired of all this terrorist shit.

It is my belief that the recent troubles in Saudi Arabia are attempts to destabalise the Saudi Royal family. I won't speculate as to why - do a bit of research and draw your own conclusion.
