    40,000 American live and work in Arabia.. Some are 3rd generation. I enjoyed living there and admire the Saudi people and their leadership.

    What is your experience of Saudi Arabia?

    Mostly used in developing healthcare, education, clean water, infrastructure and economic diversification.

    All 40,000 can just stay there as far as I'm concerned. For good.

    What are you talking about? Muslims are all about a civil society.

    Actually that's true.. All their traditions are about equality, modesty, good manners, hospitality etc.

    Maybe we are having a prob with the word "all".

    For lo, if such were the case, the area would not
    be the hotbed / source of most of the violence and
    instability in the world.

    And "equality"? For women or them unbelievers?
    I dont think so.

    If the western states were there to steal don't you think it would be much easier just to outright take what's there and colonize the land?

    Not all Arab countries are alike.. I am speaking of KSA and the Gulf States.

    They are VERY civil towards women and unbelievers.

    Who knows if you read what I said or understood it.
    But, again,you guys keep your oil.
    Dont sell any. Send all foreign workers home.
    See how that turns out for you.

    Foreign workers are there because
    you guys dont know want to work, and do
    not know how.

    That's not really true. ARAMCO is the largest and most successful oil company in the world and it is fully integrated from Shaybah to Manifa to Ghawar.

    The Saudis have accomplished a great deal since the concession agreement ended and they nationalized the company.

    Uhh... lets make that "not ENTIRELY true."

    The collapse of the economies in the opec states
    would be swift if they kept their oil, or "just"
    expelled all foreign workers. As you know.
