The image also shows multiple manned aircraft and, as well as new construction to accommodate the increased military presence.

China gets hands on experience using their drones. Exercises are very good but when there is real skin in the game, you pay more attention.

Plus China and Saudi are going down the road of allying by scratching each others backs.

Will Fark, RRH and other liberals complain as much about Chinese-Saudi relations as they do American-Saudi relations or will we hear ?

I prefer to complain about Canada_Saudi relations.

The thing you and liberals have in common is you like to bitch about 'em out of one side of your mouts while s---ing them off for money with the other.

Then there's the whole autographed portrait of Prince Bandar Bush on your night stand thing... God you Alt righties are f'n weird.

As much as you complain about American, conservatives and non-libs, America is forever on your mind and on the tip of your tongue.
