Hopefully they can increase their production rate in 2024.

Saudi Arabia and Russia have the same goal - removing Biden and placing Donald Trump in the White House again.

For Russia, it means Trump will hand them Ukraine.

For Saudi, it will remove US opposition to their dirty deeds and give them a puppet in Trump; they already bought the Trump family with the $2 billion dollars!

The platform #X shouldn’t do #SaudiArabia’s dirty work

Saudi Arabia this summer sentenced a man to death based solely on his #SocialMedia activity — including his tweets & retweets on #Twitter, now known as X. #MuhammadalGhamdi, a retired schoolteacher, had only 10 followers, but the regime used his harmless posts as evidence against him. Worse, there’s reason to worry that the #platform has made the job of #repression even easier.

I get occasional emails asking why my business does not export to Saudi Arabia or other nations which have terrible human rights records. The reason is that I personally do not want to profit from other people's mistreatment.
Here is yet another example of why Saudi Arabia should be treated as an international pariah with which no-one does business of any kind, including sport of course.
