Where does the U.S. import its oil from? 2000-2015? Canada was #1!!!
UPDATE – June 9, 2016 – A Toronto Star Editorial reports Saudis have lobbied themselves off War Crime Black List – Demands they be put back on – A Saudi-led coalition in Yemen has killed hundreds of children. So why has the UN removed it from its annual blacklist of bad actors?
UPDATE — May 12, 2016 — former U.S. Navy Secretary John Lehman, a member of the 2004 9/11 Commission, turns whistle-blower, tells The Guardian that the Commission knew there was broad Saudi support of the 9/11 terrorists and that many Commission members wanted to blow the whistle on the Saudis but the U.S. Establishment had held them back.
May 5, 2016 – The U.S. Congress is considering a bill to let Americans sue Saudi Arabia for 9/11. Until this week the Congress would not pass the bill. The 9/11 Commission had refused to publish 28 pages of its 2004 findings. But now it’s revealed that the hidden pages showed Saudis helped some of the 9/11 hijackers. Suddenly, Congress will pass the bill. The Saudis are furious … threatening to pull their money out of America. As usual, President Obama is intimidated.
A Middle East expert tells PBS that Saudi Arabia depends way to much on oil and “we need to prepare for several possibilities, from the escalation of the cold war between Iran and Saudi Arabia into a hot one, to a collapse of the Saudi monarchy and the chaos accompanying such a development, to the emergence (if the deputy crown prince succeeds with his bold plans) of a renewed economic powerhouse in the Middle East”
In Saudi Arabia there are no laws. No ruler cuts off more heads than the so-called “King of Saudi Arabia”. Reason and ability count for nothing in Saudi Arabia. Saudi men savage Saudi women. The king’s screw-ball Wahhabi priests have a direct line to God — the king will flog and/or cut the head off anyone who disagrees. Saudi priests want to force the rest of the world’s inhabitants to convert to “Sharia Law” or lose their heads. The Saudis are our official “allies” and the Government of Canada is trying to hand them (for a price of $15 Billion) Canada’s latest in riot-suppression-vehicles.
April 19, 2016 – Was he pushed or did he jump? Something was going on in some backroom somewhere. Foreign Affairs Minister Stéphane Dion admits full and sole responsibility for signing export permits for the hose ’em down/plow ’em down riot suppression vehicles the Saudis are buying from Canada. In his pidgin English, Dion says the equivalent of:
the Liberal Cabinet and Prime Minister Trudeau “didn’t know nothing about nothing”.
Not too different from Tory Nigel Wright and the $90,000 payment of Senator Mike Duffy’s “expenses/non-expenses”.
April 16, 2016 — The Globe’s Steven Chase reports that “Liberals warned of increase in Saudi human-rights violations before signing of export permits“
April 14, 2016 — The Globe publishes a Brian Gable Cartoon – ‘Peacekeepers “R” Us’
April 13, 2016 — Canadian Foreign Affairs minister Stéphane (Goofy) Dion signs export permit for $15-billion riot control weapons — signing is critical to the deal. The Globe’s Campbell Clark lashes out “Ottawa’s high standards for foreign-arms deals is false advertising” .
And so is Goofy Dion’s devotion to human rights!!!
April 1, 2016 — Ottawa announces its human rights report on Saudi Arabia to be ‘sanitized’ for public — large parts are to be redacted under sections 15 and 21 of the Federal Access to Information Act
March 28, 2016 – The Globe and Mail says a key bureaucrat in Foreign
Affairs Ministry opposes Saudi riot suppression contract — Saudi Arabia just buying off support of Canadian Industry so Canada will turn blind eye to Saudi human rights abuse.
March 17, 2016 — The Saudi riot control deal will go through, read Prime Minister Trudeau in a mealy-mouthed statement at the United Nations yesterday — crafted by propaganda doctors from Canada’s Military/Industrial complex and the Ontario Chamber of Commerce. As a perfect but inappropriate backdrop to the Princeling’s hypocrisy stood Global Affairs Minister Stephanie (Goofy) Dion inappropriately grinning and euphemizing in broken English.
A month or so ago, the so-called king of Saudi Arabia cut the heads off 47 people. Their crime – talking back. To keep Saudi Arabia safe for feudalism and superstition, Canada will sell the king $15 million worth of riot-control tanks.

… But we need their oil. And they stabilize the middle east.
We don’t need their oil any more. They don’t stabilize anything. Using the money we pay for their oil — they’re trying to spread their nutty religion — Wahhabism — all over the world. Using ISIS, the so-called “Islamic State”, they’ve thrown monkey wrench after monkey wrench into any chance of a peace in the Middle East. Before the king cut off the 47 heads, the American government wore blinders. After the executions, the only American who’s still wearing blinders is fear-ridden President Obama. Obama is frightened to step outside the 70-year American box of sucking up to the Saudis … of course he’s also frightened to step outside the ancient box of sucking up to Israel. I know — Obama’s the first Black President and all Americans should be proud of that — but the sooner he’s gone, the better.
But we need an ally to fight Iran for us, don’t we? These people have been spreading terror for the last 35 years. Because Moslems had an argument 1,500 years ago. The Saudis hate fellow Moslems of the Shia variety more then they hate Christians. The Shias are not quite as savage as the fanatic Sunni Moslems. And Shias hate the Sunnis as much as vice versa.
Well, the Shia Iranian revolutionaries aren’t quite ready to be our total friends. But — because they’re much more civilized than the Saudis and we can see what’s going on — we know where we stand. And they are becoming more moderate. The Saudis could stab us in the back overnight. They are our enemies. We should do everything possible to make the Iranians more friendly. The Saudis consider us enemy infidels. And if trouble really gets rolling in the Middle East the Saudis aren’t designed to and don’t want to do anything about it.
We must treat Saudi Arabia like any other nation — the same way we treat Britain and Germany. The West should be closer to Iran than to the Saudis and the Saudi king will either smarten up or lose his own head. Of course an even better solution would be for the world to outlaw religion PERIOD. Nothing in history has done the World more harm than religion. But, human nature being what it is — religion will last forever.
