Bwahahaha! Why am I not offended? Maybe because there have never been American terrorist attacks in Saudi Arabia and never will be? Wow! Way to show us, Saudi Arabia! Why is it whenever these countermeasures against terrorism are invoked in America, it's the Muslims who get all bent out of shape over it? What? Are you offended we are making it harder for you to kill us? And also, you wont even let Americans into your scummy backwards country unless you need our skilled services or military protection. No tourists are allowed in Saudi Arabia, they dont want our corrupting, impure presence to soil their precious desert. [b]Fingerprinting likely for Americans[/b] By Molouk Y. Ba-Isa, Arab News Staff DAMMAM/RIYADH, 7 October — In a message to all American citizens residing in the Kingdom, the US Embassy has advised that there may soon be changes in Saudi visa regulations. Saudi Arabia is expected to start fingerprinting Americans entering the Kingdom in response to a similar measure introduced by the United States last week, the US Embassy said yesterday. “The embassy wishes to advise American citizens that in the near future the government of Saudi Arabia may start requiring American citizens to be fingerprinted as part of their visa or entry process,” the embassy said in a new warden message. “There also is the possibility that the duration of visas to Saudi Arabia will be shortened for American citizens and visa fees increased,” the message added. New stringent US immigration checks on nationals from several Muslim countries went into effect last Tuesday. The measures, which require Saudi male visitors to the United States to undergo digital fingerprinting and photographing, and to provide information on travel plans, has angered Saudis who decried it as discrimination. Under these rules, male visitors from the countries concerned, aged between 16 and 45, are required to register with the authorities upon entering the United States. Such visitors are also required to appear for an interview at immigration offices if they wish to stay in the United States for more than 30 days. They must notify the authorities within 10 days of any change to their place of residence. The US Embassy said the expected Saudi measures are in “response to the introduction ... of the National Security Entry Exit Registration System (NSEERS).” There are between 30,000 and 40,000 Americans living and working in the Kingdom, down from about 60,000 a decade ago. For decades, Saudi Arabia and the US have been involved in frequent discussions over visa rules and regulations. Repeated requests to issue two-year multiple entry visas to American businessmen coming to the Kingdom have been met with a lack of enthusiasm. In recent years it has, however, become common for multiple exit-re-entry visas to be made available to Americans with Saudi residency visas. Since Sept. 11, 2001, the US Embassy in Saudi Arabia has stiffened procedures for issuing visas to Saudi citizens, including students. http://www.arabnews.com/Article.asp?ID=19227

Fine with me, who wants to go to that shithole anyway? Claim to be on our side, while giving money and aid and refuge to those against us. Subjects of the Saudi Kingdom have committed acts of war against us, yet the Saudis don't want to take any responsibility. If it weren't for their oil (and their pull with other oil-producing-nations), I'd say F--- them ALL. FOTBR

I know. Most of the hijackers came out of Saudi, and they say so what? We do something to put closer controls on who we let into the US out of Saudi Arabia and Pakistan, and they freak out. After 9/11, they think we're way out of line. So they respond in kind with fingerprinting, EVEN THOUGH THEY WILL NOT ALLOW AMERICANS INTO SAUDI ARABIA IN THE FIRST PLACE!!!! (unless they have been invited beforehand to work in specialized industries, or on military bases) Their longstanding restriction of Americans, those awful, awful infidels, are much harsher than our newly revised visa requirements for Saudi nationals. And they're not doing it out of real security concerns, but out of being insulted. Fuck the Saudis. I hope we invade them after Iraq.

I forgot about having to be "invited". Hey, can we cut down immigration to only those who have been "invited"? That would fix a good portion of our terrorism "threat". Of course, we'd have to throw out all the foriegners here and invite the ones we wanted to come back. And while we're at it, can we throw out all the democraps and stuffy-headed acadamics who still think socialism is a good idea? [:D] FOTBR

Not that I would ever go that that shithole of a country, but they could start "framing" Americans, claiming that their fingerprints were found at the scene of a bombing, etc.

Lol, that hadn't occurred to me. My first thought was so they could have better fingerprints for their terrorist-friends-network's counterfeited documents.
