Perhaps we should give up our Constitutional rights and liberties if it will make Mr Obama stop crying?

Stripping US citizens of their freedom will really help to turn his frown upside-down!

I'm still waiting on the reason we are even allied with the Saudis right now. This kinda of shit is insane, if you don't like the people those doctors are treating then pull them out, it's a waste of good human talent.

Nixon tied the American dollar to Saudi Oil back in the early 70's. Thus the Petrodollar was born. Thats why they went into Iraq and Libya and who knows where else they had to squash a gold backed currency.

Saudi Araia borders the Suez Canal and Egypt, has a huge stockpile of easily extracted oil reserves, controls Mecca and Medina, and exerts significant influence in the Sunni world. They weren't a terrible choice for regional partners, if we're looking at pure alliances of convenience.

US security guarantees for their oil reserves and monarchy helped expand US influence with the other gulf states during a period of uncertainty, and put petro-reserves in the pocket of the West, and for a time helped ensure global trade through the suez was secure. The problem is that religious bullshit, cultural movements, and politics never stop evolving.

Islam has become a liability, Yemen's situation is deteriorating and threatens trade through the Suez as well as the stability of the Saudis. The Saudis meanwhile have begun to forsake soft power for direction regional action which is making many people nervous as this goes against what made them so "stable" in the first place; They didn't get involved directly.

Because we wish we could be so overt with our desire to kill in the name of the state, but don't have the balls, so we go to war and ally with someone who chops heads for violating what we would call the 1st ammendment?

It's clearly intentional. But why?

In Afghanistan the DWB were treating the Taliban as well as locals. Hence the 'accidental' attack on the hospital in Kunduz. If DWB are working with both sides in Yemen then the Saudis are probably sending them a message to get out.

DWB follows the Hippocratic Oath. They treat anyone in need of medical treatment, and they put themselves at extreme risk to do so.

Frankly I think those bombs should be landing in Saudi-Arabia. Bomb them until they stop supporting terrorist mosques.

1000+ years of Islamic history proves you have no idea what you're talking about. Islam has always been an invasive and highly militaristic religion.

i think honestly, as much as I like DWB they need to get out of the region now, that place is a mess, and it probably will only get worse.
