So..... Saudi Arabia, in response to Canada making comments it doesn't like demanding that it stop jailing people for what they considered reasonable and free speech, expelled their ambassador and recalled their own.

Fine.

But then they apparently did this:

This came from a verified account which has since been shut down and they claim to have "apologized" -- but it was previously described as an official government account.

Was it?

I think we need an official answer -- now.

Because if it was, in any way, shape or form then **** them for that bull**** -- with a chainsaw.

Never mind that this looks like an admission of official involvement in 9/11 here -- not "supposed" or believed anymore, but now, it would appear, admitted in public.

Well that's just fine.

You know all those aircraft and other systems you have of ours KSA?  **** you on parts and service assistance too.  Let's see how well they work for you when all their electronics are jammed from the air and you can't get parts.

Even better -- you ought to park 'em out in the desert somewhere and then get away from them.

Well away, so we can blow 'em to bits.

You think you're such hot **** that you can not only threaten another nation with terrorism for speaking out about your jackbooted imprisonment of people for mere speech but in addition you think you can mock the United States in such a fashion and take credit as a government for murdering 3,000 Americans?

I think Trump ought to contemplate nuking Mecca, the birthplace of the crap that gave rise to 9/11 AND Riyadh.

RIGHT NOW.

Oh, and unlike the KSA, we have this thing called The First Amendment, which means I'm perfectly free to voice my opinion that the world needs two more repositories of high-quality, albeit radioactive, glass.

Would an "official government account" of Saudi Arabia publish in the English language?

If for external consumption (aimed at Canada, so.....) quite possibly.

Remember that KSA is a rather-censored place. You're taking an AWFUL risk saying anything politically-related without official sanction from the crown; in fact, it might get you hung.

Canadian Immigration policy has now been conclusively shown to be a Huge Strategic error.

The Terror cells are already in place as we saw a couple of weeks ago with the shooter and the 53kg of Carfentanil.

One of those Yemeni launched missiles could get through.

I don't think it is actually KSA technicians operating the THAAD or Patriot 3 SAM battery.
If it is USA people, pull them out.

I've said for decades that the entirety of the MidEast should be turned into glass. I still think that solves more problems than it creates. (And I'm only half kidding.)

Instead of nuking Mecca and Medina, why not take them over, wall off the area and build the world's largest pig farm? Profits from the sale of " Mecca Bacon " could be tidy. I would pay 15 dollars a pound for bacon from Mecca or Medina.

The pig farm option would be funny as Hell and would probably serve to kick off the war we have been avoiding. Making your enemy screamingly angry before the war might cause them to make mistakes.

*shakes head*

I'm pretty sure they declared war on us several decades ago. I know at least some sects did.

On the "cause them to make mistakes" ... Have you seen video of them fighting? They have numbers, and they have bravery due to their whole afterlife outlook... But skill? Well, I'm sure at least some do have some skill.

The relationship between the U.S. and Saudi Arabia is a complex one, starting with the photo, taken on Valentine's Day, 1945. That was a few years before the discoveries of their vast oil reserves started, 1948-53. One of the things mentioned in negotiations to end the Oil Embargo of 1974 was invasion of Saudi Arabia.

To this day Saudi Arabia is Nr. 2 among the countries we import >40% of our oil from, right behind Canada.

It's all about oil, all the way back to Pearl Harbor.
