Every region and culture of the world has different values. Doesn't mean that you should isolate yourself geopolitically to keep a moral high ground.

Sorry. I'm not a relativist. If you treat women like property, your culture is garbage.

Saudi Arabia is as contrary to our values as Russia is, if not more so.

Russia at least appreciates great literature and great classical music. I'm sure you get whipped in public in SA if you're a woman reading Tolstoy or listening to Tchaikovsky.

The thing that a lot of people can’t seem to understand is that our relationship is so complicated with secret agreements going back years and years, it’s impossible for us to know really WTF is going on. A new president walks in and gets briefed on all the secret agreements that have to be honored or everything falls apart and you can’t explain a damn thing to voters. They are not our friends, but it’s a lot like coming in and taking over for Marty in the Ozark series if Marty’s position was voted in and elected. There would be so many deep and twisted agreements that the voters could never know about and you have to keep things stable.

Saudi Arabia is no ally to the United States. They’re as much as if not more of a regional disrupter as Iran. Their hands are dirty as +++++. 

You have no clue how complicated our relationship is with those dirt bags. There are so many secret agreements past presidents have made with them that have to be dealt with to keep things stable, it’s a mess. SA is a politician’s nightmare because people like you will judge everything at face value without knowing what the face really looks like and really is. And they know that, and they exploit it for more leverage to get things they want. There’s some good books out there if you really want to learn about the complexity.

This.  Russian culture and history is beyond fascinating and gorgeous.  They are far closer to European culture than Asian or Middle Eastern.  Tchaikovsky is the GOAT, by the way.  I think it was you who agreed with me Symphony number 6 is the greatest piece of music ever written.

I think I may have misunderstood your question. No, I'm not, nor am I into the LGBT part of it, either. Different strokes for similar folks.

Regarding SA I have very little knowledge about the country. However, I do know we have several large strategic air bases there.
