Winning the Hearts and Minds of the Middle East


A recent poll found that Bush is viewed positively by only 12 percent of Saudis. About 15 percent of Saudis have a favorable opinion of bin Laden. Bin Laden is more popular than Bush! AP, Think Progress.

Yet, we continue to largely fund the wealthy elite of their country through our oil revenues and Bush is proposing we give the Saudis additional weapons to arm themselves against Iran.

Well I bet a few missiles sold will bring those poll number up!

I don't know why Osama wouldn't be. He's responsible for less body bags filling middle eastern morgues than Der Leader.

And I love selling arms to that backward-ass, dark ages nation.

the rats in the sewers of NYC have higher polls numbers that Chimpy.

and you know that 12% who approve in Saudi Arabia are ALL members of the Royal family since there are about 2,000,000 of them -- and most of them work with dad at Carlyle Group

George just can't unnerstand what the problem is. His daddy likes him. His mommy likes him. Laura doesn't blow too much smoke his direction. The twins drink like him. Why can't the Saudis like him?

Besides, he wonders, why should he care what the Saudis think of that guy who's running against Hillary?

Comrade Kevin: Giving weapons to people that hate us! Has that ever been a problem in the past? Let me think...

Swinebread: I think that the only thing that will increase will be gas prices in America and revenue for OPEC.

Randal Graves: George Bush, the new Butcher of Bagdad!

Distributorcap: That makes sense! I was wondering who those 12% were.

DCup: Yes. Bush is only concerned about being popular with his friends in the oil business. Who cares about the riff-raff!

And we're about to "sell" them 20mil worth of weapons; I'm sure that will help! Guns and rocket launchers make everybody smile.

Here's a caption for your very entertaining illustration:

To bring them gol-durned poll numbers up, all I have to do is kill a whole bunch of them enemy types, and then the good guys, my oil buddies, will be way more than 12% of something or other. IT'S HARD WORK! But I know how to use a chain saw, 'cause of all my brush cutting, back at the ranch.

Yeah, but Britney Spears has a 25% approval in Saudi Arabia so what do they know?

dguzman: When you care enough to give the very best - nothing expresses your heartfelt wishes like ammunition made out of depleted uranium.

Madam Z: Ha! Good one! "IT'S HARD WORK!"

Dean Wormer: Saudi Arabia love Britney for her piety.

Commander Other: Hmm... Indeed.
