who wants to give a social studies lesson?
Buzz writes today:
I guess it all started with the whole Idi Amin thing. You know, the coma, the death, the stories of his life (the bastard!). The stories of how the Saudis kept him in relative luxury because he was a Muslim.
The Saudis. That's where my confusion comes in. The more I read about that nation, the more I don't understand why they are our friends. They seem (to my pea brain anyway) like the bad guys. What am I missing? This isn't just because of the oil, is it?
So, can anyone help me out here? *cough* Michele *cough* Anyone at all?
Would anyone like to contribute to the Educate Buzz on the Saudis class today?
