A more detestable regime than Saudi Arabia could not be found. Arguably the most repressive regime on earth. An absolute monarchy. A Wahhabist theocratic nightmare that arms ISIS. Only North Korea may be worse, and North Korea does not put women in burqas or have any areas where female genital mutilation (FGM) is practiced. It is a close call. At least North Korea does not ban alcohol.
Make no mistake about it: Shi’a Iran, as bad as it is, is nowhere near as oppressive as the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA).
