    You'll be outraged when you see it,especially in view of current events and some seemingly inconsequential controversies floating around of late.

    The Saudi's get bowed to alright. It also makes you wonder just where all those arms come from. Unholy alliances indeed:cool:

    France is all over the pirate situation,interestingly enough.

    Seeing this program really makes you realize how narrow our perspectives are when it comes to what's happening now in our own country,as well as around the world. People seem to think deals made anytime prior to the last 10 years have been mysteriously abolished,gone, like they no longer affect us.

    Our favorite boogeyman hails from Saudi Arabia, Margaret Thatcher was the one who originally spearheaded this deal and it made GB very,very rich. With Reagan's help at the time (say what you want about Ronald Reagan but it'll take a LOT to bring him down; the man's an icon to this day no matter any wrongdoings).

    For anyone who watched the show; the Saudis have interesting tastes in entertainment,all of which are accommodated. FWIW, the shopping fetishes of the Saudi mistresses are also addressed, so much so that the govts involved in this deal bought the Prince a private plane just to transport everything their mistresses bought here in the US.

    The level of corruption is so deep,so entrenched in the past,so globally connected that it's hard to imagine ever being able to eradicate it,especially in the near future. One thing's for sure; the only thing this president's doing is streamlining those old,entrenched roads into superhighways.

    Gold Oil Drugs G.O.D. is far from dead in this country,it just depends on which one(s) you worship;)
