(Saudi Arabia Radio Ad [Barf Alert] )
KFYI, Phoenix | Nov 14, 2003

Posted on 11/14/2003 12:59:37 PM PST by Diddley

The following 60 second ad was aired on KFYI, Phoenix during the past few days.

(The first sentence was – in essence – people fear what they don’t know)
A woman’s voice: “Saudi Arabia is committed to reform. Just this year we passed legislation to create more jobs and opportunities. Economic success makes it harder for terrorists to take root.”

“Our text books have been updated to remove references to intolerance.”

"We’re modernizing our laws, holding open elections, opening our country and our minds to keep pace with a changing world.”

"But, before you say it’s only talk, please stop and remember that there was no space program when Kennedy declared man would walk on the moon. There was no racial equality when Martin Luther King voiced his dream.”

"Saudi Arabia speaks of change because we are committed.”

Man’s Voice: “Progress: it sounds right in any language.
This is a message from the people of Saudi Arabia – strong allies, committed friends.”

TOPICS: News/Current Events
KEYWORDS: johnfkennedy; martinlutherking; propaganda; reform; saudiarabia
They really convinced me. (/sarc)

So they're saying until then, we're just going to have to put up with the steady stream of terrorists and hijackings emanating out of the country?

The PR people for the Saudi sound like they're the same ones writing the foreign policy talking points for Demos - out of touch with the common folk who know more about the Saudis than they, and wholly unaware how they undermine their own position.

In fact they probably ARE the same ones. Who else could think up Clark's Saudi commandoes in Afghanistan solution? That had to be a talking point that slipped over from the Saudi to Clark campaign. ("Had to be" because I can't believe, yet, that Clark is totally insane.) :)

When you consider all the PR and influence in Congress / the White House / Washington in general the real United Nations is "our" federal government.

Saudi Arabia is an excellent example. India is another.

"Representative Joseph Crowley (D-NY) and Representative Joe Wilson (R-SC) were on January 8, 2003 unanimously elected Co-Chairmen of the Congressional Caucus on India and Indian Americans in the 108th Congress.

"The objective of the Congressional Caucus on India & Indian-Americans is to push the Indian-American community's agenda on the Hill." [end excerpt]

Always them before America in the hyphenated communities.

There is a list on the site of Congress critters who belong to India's agenda. What chance do Joe and Jane American have against foreign organizations and money? Last I heard there were 175 members of Congress doing India's bidding. Yes, the H1B visas were allowed to drop back but in the meantime many "American" corporations and body shops have switched to L-1 visas and offshore facilities.

If you are an American (without a hyphen) you might want to check which country your congressman represents before voting next year.

I cannot remember who but it reminds me of the story about a former secretary of state who would ask State Dept. personnel to point on a globe to the country they represented. Invariable the Sec. of State (a Republican) would have to spin the globe back to the United Sates and correct them, "No, this is the country you represent!"

Well, they've got Joseph C. Wilson IV on their payroll. And he's proved fluent in the language of dissemblement.
