Today in Saudi Arabia a woman was executed for practicing sorcery. What are the laws in Saudi Arabia concerning sorcery? They are not defined. That is left to a judge. The Bush family [yes, THAT Bush family] has been cozy with the Saudi family, Saudi oil and other business, etc. since about 1940. Prescott Bush smuggled oil from Saudi Arabia into Nazi Germany. How's that for creative capitalism? It was against the embargo placed on Nazi Germany by the Allies. A little law never stopped the Bush family. This is how the Bush family fortune was established and fluorished.
George H.W. Bush today sits on Saudi boards. His son saw to it that America made a special effort to protect Saudi Arabia. The powerful Bush family has always encouraged Americans to ignore or look the other way concerning Saudi Arabia's horrible government and laws. Saudi Arabia is a draconian nation. It is like something out of the Middle Ages or worse. Yet we blame Palestinians, whose land was taken from them to form the nation of Israel, for their actions in the Middle East. Love the Saudis, hate the Palestinians. That is the mantra of right-wing, capitalism greed and selectivity.
But the Bush family actions for personal gain and right-wing gain does not end there. The hero of right-wingers, Ronald Reagan, helped to strengthen our arch-enemy Iran. Yep, the Gipper gave Iran all kinds of military secrets. The Gipper never hesitated to sell out to horrible right-wing concepts. Heck, good old Prez Reagan even went to have a religious moment in a cemetary filled with the "heroic" bodies of SS members. The SS was the special group that supported right-wing Hitler and the Nazis. That was where Ronald Reagan thought he belonged. Of all the places for a president to visit in Germany, Reagan chose a SS cemetary. Right-wing comrades are important to right-wingers in any age. Right-wingers like Hitler were given special financial and other support from the likes of Henry Ford and Du Pont. America is loaded with right-wing money. Spread it around in support of other buddies.
In Saudi Arabia women are charged with sorcery for predicting the future, breaking up marriages, giving spiritual advice, and all kinds of things that in America we call "free speech." Not in Saudi Arabia. I often wonder what went through the mind of Prescott Bush and now goes through the minds of George H.W. Bush and the little squeaker and Vietnam-dodger G.W. when they visit Saudi Arabia or are a host or guest of the Saudi family. Thousands and thousands of Americans died in support of the Saudi "government." What do the Bush family members think about their long ties and profits regarding Saudi Arabia? Hmmm? If you don't like it, blame the Palestinians.
