The Gulf State Despots: Ten Facts about Saudi Arabia

August 10, 2012

Global Research, by Tony Cartalucci:
"Astounding hypocrisy, self-censorship, and complicity by the West regarding one of the most regressive regimes on Earth. The Cooperation Council for the Arab States of the Gulf (GCC) comprises of 6 nations, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, and Oman. In principle, Kuwait and Bahrain are considered 'constitutional monarchs', in practice, all 6 are despotic autocracies with Saudi Arabia, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, and Oman overtly 'absolute monarchs'. Devoid of even a feigned semblance of representative governance, these regimes brutally repress not only their own subjects, but play active roles in repressing the people of other nations, both on their borders and well beyond them."
