Skip to comments.US to Double Visas for Saudi Students
Posted on 04/09/2008 6:36:35 PM PDT by LSUfan
US Ambassador Ford Fraker said in Sakaka that his country aims to double the number of student visas issued to Saudis.
Currently there are 15,000 Saudi students in the US, he said during an event on Sunday with local business leaders to an audience at the Al-Jouf Chamber of Commerce and Industry. We aim to increase their numbers to 30,000 over the next five years.
Fraker said Saudi Arabia should bolster its English-language programs because it is generally required for Saudis seeking to pursue higher studies in the US.
Fraker also stressed the need for popularizing English teaching programs because it would overcome the language barriers for Saudi students seeking to study in the US easier.
In order to facilitate increased mutual visits, Fraker said he is working to simplify the issue of visas to Saudi businessmen.
I know let’s send them all to flight school! It would be great public relations.
I don’t want to hear any more about the “War on Terror” - it’s a complete joke.
the insanity of political incest continues.
Your Persian Gulf sovereign wealth funds at work.
Your tagline is very applicable here.....
30,000 Saudi pilots.
As long as they only learn how to fly after take-off. Oh.. and landings don’t really matter either.
When the Saudi’s allow CHRISTIAN Churches....then, and ONLY then, should we allow their students to study here....this is crazy!
double visas only after they double oil shipments to the US.
“I dont want to hear any more about the War on Terror - its a complete joke”
Right you are. No consistency at all. Selective efforts.
we’re hanging ourselves....
Slow,but sure suicide.
That, friend is an understatement.
The Kingdom of Camel Jockeys and Sheep Fornicators, (YES, Saudi Arabia, less anyone misunderstand my not so politically correct accusation) are the BIGGEST terror supporters and enablers in the WORLD.
I would gladly pay an extra dollar a gallon of gas (though I'm retired and not exactly in a great financial position) if we would tell them to go and "eat" their oil.
Why we pander to those corrupt, sand monkeys and protect them (and their oil) while they continue to do everything in their power to harm us, including refusing W's (while he was on his knees wearing his best pads) imploring to open their spigots a little, is beyond me.
If between the Sauds and Iran, it would be a toss up as to which is more dangerous to world peace and stability.
Let’s launch a few more wars, pass a few more citizen surveilance acts, add a few more lines of patdowns for Grandma at the airport, and run some more government sponsored TV commercials telling you to spy on your neighbor. Because, after all, suggesting we close our borders or not issue VISAs to Arab nationals just means you are a racist with a pre-9/11 mindset who hates Jews and Mexicans and Oompa Loompas. If you are a Republican, please tune to Fox News and watch 18 hours of terror hype for your fear-based conditioning. If you happen to be a Democrat, please tune into CNN or MSNBC and watch 18 hours of global warming and economic hype for your fear-based conditioning. Remember, you are free to do as we tell you! </s>
This is sick...
