Re: What do you think about Saudi Arabia?

I think the region has a long and fascinating history. I'm not Islamic, but I find the secular history of Muhammad very interesting.

Re: What do you think about Saudi Arabia?

Nothing good at all.

The woods are hopeless. Don't waste your time, they will be destroyed. So will the marsh. It is a losing game mankind has played for more than a century. Sadness is what you are, do not deny it. The universe is a lonely place, a painful place. This is what we can share between us, period.

My country may or may not be selling them 200 new tanks. Can't be that bad of a place.

Re: What do you think about Saudi Arabia?

It's a fascinating place, with interesting rules and history. I'd like to visit the region at one point in life due to my interest in the religion and Islamic history .

I'd like to know what are the most frequent stereotypes you hear/read about your country.

Re: What do you think about Saudi Arabia?

Limited minded folk, that treat women like cattle.

Hard core Shi´te muslims. That want world to obey THEIR way of life.

You asked. I answered.

edit: Worst shithole in earth, unless you are in charge. Only comparable to North-Korea and Zimbabwe.
edit2: Only country that still uses slave workers. Openly.

Re: What do you think about Saudi Arabia?

I think it's sad that Saudi Arabia doesn't let women vote and drive cars (rural areas being an exception), if the women don't want to vote or drive that's fine but they should be given the opportunity/choice, same goes with better education I also think minimum age marriage laws should be introduced. I could go on and on.

The climate is harsh but from what I've read you have interesting fauna

Concerned but not consumed.
