Democracy for Saudi Arabia

Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah is in the UK for a state visit, the first by a Saudi monarch for 20 years. Like the Shah of Iran and the Emir of Kuwait, the Saudi monarch is from a family that was handpicked by Western powers to rule their nation in Western interests. Democracy, human rights, freedom - these were not on the agenda. The priority was always the flow of oil - and to hell with the locals. I am American, I love freedom, I dislike the Saudi monarch because is a regime of terror and oppression. I demand democracy for Saudi Arabia.
