#4 Saudi Arabia was one of only three countries -- along with Pakistain and the United Arab Emirates -- that recognised the hardline Islamist Taliban regime during its rule in Afghanistan from 1996-2001
How many of them are still supporting the Taliban?

#6 That is the symbol of what is going wrong in Afghanistan: when Kabul fell we should have been airing non-stop the stories about Al Queda people (Arabs) looking down on Afghans or raprting Afghan women. Resentłent twoard Arabs was the fortst step for resentment against Islam. Insteadd we rolled the red carpet to the Arabs on their way back: we funded the Hadj for the Afgahsn, awarded the contract for a network for cell phones to an Arab company. And of course we let them fund new mosques for preaching hate againt us. Now the old pig will build a mega-mosque and we will do nothinbg at ikt be it blowing it or telling the old pis woulmd not give a cent ifb they were starving but he ver has money for mosques. Or more exactly agencies for releiveinbg the Afgans of theior money through the Hadj.

#7 JFM, I know a woman of Pashtun ancestry who says we should have aired lots of pictures of Arabs with their faces covered by a kaffiyah and the words:
"Look at them - they are cowards! They cover their faces like girls!!!"

#8 Still, this will give plenty of Afghans the opportunity to learn that the only thing lovable about the Saudis is their money...something only the Pakistanis, for some reason, do not understand.
