Who is Manipulating the United States?
The Middle East
There is a country that according to a US Department of State, Human Rights Bureau report of 2010, whose Government uses torture, has poor prison conditions, denies fair trials and holds political prisoners. It restricts freedoms of speech, assembly, movement and religion.
According to a Human Rights Watch report in 2011, this country suppresses the rights of 9 million women and 8 million foreign workers, subjecting them to unfair trials and arbitrary imprisonment.
This country is not Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Iran or Syria, it is Saudi Arabia one of the United States, so called, allies in the Middle East.
Why have I not heard any American politicians asking for changes in the countries regime there?
Why, if America is concerned about the human rights of people around the world, do the rights of the average Saudi get ignored?
With a $60 billion arms deal with Saudi, awaiting Congressional approval, why is nobody asking that it be linked to Human Rights improvements?
- What about Human Rights?
If the US are so concerned with human rights around the world, why are they doing big business with the worst offenders?
Middle East Oil
Middle East Policy
Who really is making the Middle East policies for the US?
Iran and Iraq, both pose threats to the Saudi dominance in the region and Saudi and Syria are long time enemies. Now bring Israel into the equation.
All the US policies in the Middle East favor both Israel and Saudi. They have absolutely nothing to do with human rights and none of the policies particularly favor US citizens in any way.
What about the oil you say?
What about it? America imports 49% of its oil from several countries. It imports most from Canada, then Saudi [No.2], Mexico, Venezuela, Nigeria, Ecuador, Iraq [No.7], Angola, Colombia, Russia and Brazil as No.11.
The US could easily find oil, from other places in the world, to compensate for any shortfalls in the Middle East.
Firstly, Israel has had the biggest lobby group in Washington for years, bigger even than the NRA. It would not have maintained these numbers if they were not effective.
Second, many of the faceless, wealthy elite of America, who are the puppet masters of the politicians, share business interests with the House of Saudi.
So it all boils down to business, the money and power of big business.
It is nothing to do with oil, human rights, evil dictators, and the well being of Americans or even the protection of young American soldiers. It is all about business and power.
With the possible exception of Saudi Arabia, during the cold war, the USSR had worse human rights records than any of these countries and the US negotiated with them. Why is it that the US appears not to want to try and negotiate with these countries before recommending invasions?
Many now know that American politicians are just puppets but will their lack of pride and thirst to join the elite, allow them to continue to let the United States be a puppet to Nazi style regime?
The United States foreign policy for the Middle East should be carefully reviewed before honest American soldiers are once again put into harms way.
- Who is the Terrorist?
Why is it when the US is trying to fight a war on terror, they are themselves using terror tactics? Who is and what should be done about it?
- Where are the Media Now
With millions having been spent on bringing Libya "freedom" why do we hear no more reports of what is happening to their new freedom. Is there a "gag" on the media?
- Is the War, on Terrorists or Terror?
We are told that we are winning the war on terror. Is this true? What will define success and is it possible to have two winners?
- Are Nuclear Weapons, Deterrents?
We are told that countries have nuclear weapons as deterrents only. Is this true? If this is true, then why are we creating the needs for more countries to acquire their own deterrents?
