    Fun game time. Let’s see who are the most inhuman monsters in the Middle East, ISIS or Saudi Arabia.

    — ISIS commits terror acts against Western targets. Almost all of the 9/11 hijackers were Saudi, and most believe that Saudi money in part funded 9/11, and that Saudi money in part funds ISIS. Winner: Saudi.

    — ISIS beheads people. Saudi beheads people. In 2014, the Saudis beheaded 59 people. The headcount, as it were, for ISIS is unknown. Winner: So, ISIS, by a nose.

    — Both ISIS and the Saudis cite the Koran, Islamic teachings (the hadith) and Sharia law as justification for their brutal acts. Winner: Tie.

    — The U.S. claims Saudi as one of its closest allies in the Middle East and supplies them with weapons. The U.S. claims ISIS as its worst enemy in the Middle East, and supplies them with weapons stolen or retrieved from other U.S. allies. Winner: Big, big win for ISIS.

    — Saudi leaders are regularly invited to the White House. ISIS leaders are not. Saudi, FTW!

    — The U.S. claims not to know where Saudi money goes. The U.S. claims not to know where ISIS money comes from. Winner: Double-win for ISIS!

    — ISIS publishes a list of hadd crimes considered to be “against the rights of God,” such as theft, adultery, slander, homosexuality, and banditry. Saudi Arabia publishes a list of hadd crimes considered to be “against the rights of God,” such as theft, adultery, slander, homosexuality, and banditry. Winner: Dead tie.

    — ISIS tortures political prisoners. Saudi tortures political prisoners. Winner: Tie again!

    — ISIS and the Saudis are dedicated to Wahhabism, an ultra-conservative interpretation of Islam. Tie again!

    — ISIS uses atrocities against both its internal and external enemies. Saudi uses atrocities against its domestic enemies who oppose the royal family. Winner: Saudi.

    I could go on, but in the interest of efficiency, here, from Middle East Eye, is a handy chart:

      Is it possible that the U.S. government gives U$A taxpayers money to support any of these two groups, and would it profit the MIC?

      What’s the difference between a scum sucking regime who beheads a hundred+ human beings per year and a scum sucking regime who incinerates innocent men, women and children by the thousands with Drone delivered hellfire missiles, to which the “pilots” jump in delight while high fiving and yells..”BUGSPLAT!!!!!”?


      One is a bona fide scumsucking, degenerate, murdering, Legal Imperialism war criminal…and the other is scumsucking stone age theocracy.

      Meanwhile, drivers in the US celebrate the US/Saudi relationship for gasoline prices unseen in 20 yrs. I paid $1.89 per gallon yesterday. After spending my rest of the month food budget of $17, I was able to afford one gallon. Thank SA for it’s benevolence, although I’m sure our weapons sale had something to do with it.

      We now return you to your reality.

      Btw.. it took every ounce of resistance to not spend my entire food budget balance on a steak and seafood dinner. I’m proud of myself. Besides, I like Mac and Cheese,Top Raman, and peanut butter sandwiches… everyday.

      Who says you can’t eat good on SNAP? At least I do “my part” to keep the good ole DOD’s budget up to snuff……ya know what I mean? After all … soldiers gotta eat too.. Although… maybe I should join the military….

      Drug of choice for Middle East fighters to stay on their feet during gruelling battles and generating money for more weapons, looks the amphetamine fuelling Syria’s civil war

      “The mystery of how hundreds of identical, brand-new ISIS-owned Toyota trucks have made it into Syria is solved. Not only has the US and British government admitted in the past to supplying them, their military forces and intelligence agencies ply the borders of Turkey, Jordan, and even Iraq where these fleets of trucks must have surely passed on their way to Syria – even if other regional actors supplied them. While previous admissions to supplying the vehicles implicates the West directly, that nothing resembling interdiction operations have been set up along any of these borders implicates the West as complicit with other parties also supplying vehicles to terrorists inside of Syria.”
