I do not know more oil??

2) Have you ever seen a real oasis in the desert?

Nope

3) Which tribe do you belong too?
3.5) Are there still tribes?

Qahtanite tribe, but I do not believe that my tribe is superior to another, and yes there are still tribes.

4) Is English a mandatory language class in your schooling system?

I study in a English school, but in most schools, yes.

5) What is the general opinion of American citizens that you hear from your fellow countrymen?

Some hate Americans, some are neutral(neither hate nor like) some like Americans, that is what I hear.

6) What is the general opinion of the American government?

I am neutral, I am fine with it.

7) If WW3 broke out, would you side with Russia, China, or America.

Myself, Russia, but I think Saudi Arabia will side with China(likely) or Russia.

1) Why do your leaders plan on doing once all that oil money stops coming in?

Interesting thought... I should have been more specific: Since the leaders have spent the money on toys and lavish lifestyles, do you think the country will have any hope of survival in regards to the faulting infrastructure that needs to be updated?

2) Have you ever seen a real oasis in the desert?

Nope

Me neither, was hoping you had! I wish to understand that phenomenon more than I currently do.

3) Which tribe do you belong too?
3.5) Are there still tribes?

Qahtanite tribe, but I do not believe that my tribe is superior to another, and yes there are still tribes.

Fascinating. Is there a hierarchy in place between the tribes regardless of your personal opinion?

4) Is English a mandatory language class in your schooling system?

I study in a English school, but in most schools, yes.

Interesting. Would learning how to speak Russian or Mandarin be as open or is English the most commonly taught second language in the general schooling system?

5) What is the general opinion of American citizens that you hear from your fellow countrymen?

Some hate Americans, some are neutral(neither hate nor like) some like Americans, that is what I hear.

So it's pretty differentiating. That's interesting. If you had to choose one over the other what opinion would you say dominates the general public?

6) What is the general opinion of the American government?

I am neutral, I am fine with it.

Yeah, me too for the most part.

7) If WW3 broke out, would you side with Russia, China, or America.

Myself, Russia, but I think Saudi Arabia will side with China(likely) or Russia.

Why? I ask purely out of curiosity since I don't know that much about existing alliances or historical loyalties. And why is America not one of the likely options?

8) Who would your government or leaders side with?

I have answered that above.

Yup, would you mind expanding on that please? This is a rare opportunity for me to talk with someone who lives there.

Since we are only consumers, unless saudi arabia starts producing actual things, the nope there is probably no future.

Nope

English is the most taught, yes you can learn other languages if you want, like French which is also taught in my school.

5) What is the general opinion of American citizens that you hear from your fellow countrymen?

I do not know much about politics but because the king hates America(MY GUESS)

then again SA may side with America, actually that is most likely sorry I said China is likely, but America is more likely because SA and US are friends ATM !

I see. What do you think would be something that saudi arabia could produce?

2) Have you ever seen a real oasis in the desert?

Nope

Me neither, was hoping you had! I wish to understand that phenomenon more than I currently do.

tribal hierarchy does not exists anymore.

That's interesting. So there aren't really any government officials of high positions that all originate from the same tribe or something? Or is it pretty diversified with no cases of one tribe possibly having greater influence than another in the affairs of the government?

So the king hates America but the government is aligned with America? I get it, if that's the case. Does SA have ties with China that go back or something?

I see. What do you think would be something that saudi arabia could produce?

Machines,products, cars, heck they produced a car(Gazal 1) but even the parts are not made in Saudi Arabia, you know stuff like that.

2) Have you ever seen a real oasis in the desert?

Nope

Me neither, was hoping you had! I wish to understand that phenomenon more than I currently do.

No It is pretty diversified, the Leaders are Al-Saud, they are not the greatest tribe but they are the leaders.

Why does the king hate America?

Because America does too, see this http://en.wikipedia.org... read and see the comments from politicians and the media,etc.
