    Once again, Liberals put forth something that has been happening for years as "new" news! The Saudi government has been giving out scholarships for their students to study in the United States for maybe thirty years! As we speak their are Saudi natioinals studying in West Ponit, Annapolis and the Air Force Academy and alomst every other college in the US, again all programs that have been going on for at least twenty years (the Suadis use their oil revenues to pay for the scholarships). Why do you think that we have a good relationship with the Saudis as opposed to the rest of the middle east? That is because most of the elites in Saudi society have been educated in America (it worked well for us with Margaret Thatcher, and conversely for the socailists with Bill Clinton). As for the flight schools, Saudi Arabian Airlines is owned and operated by the Saudi government, and here's a news falsh for everyone, in order to run an airline, you actually have to employ people who have been trained to fly, service, and repair airplanes! And guess what else? There are no flight schools in Saudi Arabia! Would you rather have them going to the Teran School of Aeronautics?

    Once again the liberal hypocrisy is exposed, you claim that Bush rushed to war in lieu of dipolmacy, and then cry that we have a cultural exchange with a muslim country.

    Has it occurred to you that the terrorosts - real terrorists - that flew the planes int WTC, Pentagon, and the field in PA were SAUDIS who took flight school in the US?

    What's it gonna take for it to get through your head that the Saudis are actually our enemies? I find it unbelievable that these pigs are allowed to study at our military academies. Are you telling me there aren't any Americans who would be qualified to take their place? I can't believe it! I don't question your statement, just the appearance that you seem OK with it.

    The same people that ***** about Mexicans coming to take our jobs and services don't object to people (I should say men because no woman from KofSA would be able to come as they are treated like cattle there) from a fascist dictatorship disguised as a kingdom that breeds and funds terrorists and their operations around the world.

    I can't friggin believe it!
