Saudi Arabia has canceled the scholarships of 16,000 of its students studying in Canada, also ordering them to leave the country and find academic programs elsewhere. The move comes amid a growing diplomatic row between the kingdom and the North American country, following comments by Canada's foreign ministry that criticized Saudi Arabia's human rights record and called on Riyadh to release detained activists. Responding to the criticism, Saudi Arabia also cut diplomatic ties with Canada, frozen all new trade and investment and canceled flights via its national carrier to Toronto.

I had a buddy that worked for Aramco in the US. I asked him what they did – it's not like they are drilling in west Texas or the Gulf. He said they basically pay for school for a ---- load of Saudis.

Now what would be funny is if Saudi Arabia offers 16,000 Saudi students refugee status.

This might have been a big deal if any of them where actually in class now, but they are not.

Ordering them to leave Canada? They are probably in Switzerland.

Many of the Saudi students I've encountered while in school or as a landlord seem to have a blithe contempt for westerners who are thought to be not as wealthy as the Saudis, and thus unworthy to tell them what to do. The sense of entitlement possessed can be quickly snatched from these fat, lazy young fools when presented with an opportunity to return to their homeland where they will be sneered at for not getting college degrees in the west, leaving them to perform menial work in the public sector the rest or their lives. Some eventually grow up, lose their baby fat and often become angry at the west, with terroristic hijinks ensuing...

#7 | Posted by catdog Reminds me of a Saudi prince that was in pilot training at Shepard AFB in Wichita Falls back during the 1970s. He was lazy, drank too much, was late to class and generally did not preform to standards such as passing tests. Eventually the school expelled him for nonperformance and several disciplinary issues. Despite a lot of interference from the State Department he got sent home. The King had him executed a week after he arrived. His crime was that he brought shame upon his family. Strangely, we never had problems with Saudi students again.
