These cities might have been a million times better than they are now! the oil could have helped the people! because the natural resources belong to the people not to that corrupted miserable gang which is stealing the oil and they use it on the people when they need to make bribes! btw how can a guy who gets extremely joyful on a bag of lays be powerful?!?!? he looks completely ridiculous! The oil if it was with the hands of the people it would have been used for good use and helped develop the country not oppress it! spending 500 million on prostitutes! or 55 million like bander's son who went to harvard university and spent 55 million on girls and not to forget he didnt work for the money it belongs to the people! is a big waste! and theft!*UofT* said:Two very powerful people, Bush and Abdullah!!, Anas what's with the animosity towards the House of Saud?? they could of been a lot more corrupt. Atleast Riyadh, Jeddah are modern cities and Jubail/Yanbu are industrialized. Plus Makkah and Madina have made huge progress under the house of Saud. All the power to them.
