Trudeau's Canada is obviously not capable to maintain good relations with Saudi's, just unlike one other Great Leader.

What did the Canucks do to piss them off? Suggest that they were backwards ass medieval savages who weren't fit to scrape shit out of latrines, much less rule over a land with massive mineral wealth?

The truth hurts.

... Canada would be well advised to consider its next steps carefully; more often than not, a rift with the Kingdom is usually hard to fix. The potential consequences of its may not only harm future investment and large-scale trade, but also carry the real risk of upsetting the entire Muslim and Arab worlds.

Within hours, leading Arab and Muslim states, organisations and individuals such as the UAE, Bahrain, the Muslim World League and the secretary-general of the Gulf Cooperation Council immediately sided with Riyadh in this diplomatic rift.

It began when a Canadian government department issued a statement demanding the immediate release of all activists detained in Saudi Arabia; Riyadh responded by expelling the Canadian ambassador and recalling its own envoy for consultation.

Some might argue that this could all have easily been avoided if Saudi Arabia had simply released the activists. However, the Saudi position is clear: Riyadh will not be dictated to. The Saudi government’s position is that the arrests took place in accordance with local laws. According to the public prosecutor's office, some of the detainees have confessed to conspiring with anti-Saudi bodies abroad. They should therefore be put on trial, not released simply because Canada demands it.

Of course, the situation would have been different had it been an individual Canadian politician, an NGO or a journalist making the statement. The issue here is that we are dealing with a public statement made on behalf of Canada’s equivalent of the ministry of foreign affairs.

Furthermore, the statement did not just raise concerns, or even object to the arrests — it demanded the detainees’ immediate release, which Saudi Arabia considers a blatant interference in its internal affairs and a breach of diplomatic etiquette.

Nevertheless, it is not too late for Canada to fix its relationship with Riyadh. Ottawa is entitled to its view, and it may very well communicate that view through the proper channels; but it should realize it is in no position to make demands of another sovereign country when the matter does not involve Canada.

The Canadian government could issue a new statement retracting its previous demands, and say — for instance — that they reflected only the position of the official who made them. Then, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau should send a delegation on the first plane and meet the Saudi leadership in the Kingdom, because the longer this issue continues the more difficult it will become to solve. Case in point: Qatar ...

The thing is, this is the first Saudi King to try to reform KSA. Granted, he is just now moving from the 12th Century to the 13th socially, but it is not easy to get the 50,000 effete, useless camel-shaggers in the royal family to change their ways.

And it makes no sense to bust their balls about Yemen. Yemen is the shithole that Saudi would be if western engineers had not showed them how to stick a metal pipe in the ground and have black gold flow to the surface without a pump. They are opposing Iran, which is a good thing. Western governments just need to understand when Sunnis are killing Shia, and vice versa, you just sit back on the recliner chair and pour an adult beverage.

Saudis should have time to develop. It is completely unfair to expect them to come to the 21st century in the next 10000 years. ;)

Saudi Arabia will be 125 F at night by 2100. Everyone that can will have moved to Beverly Hills or Londonistan by then.

No need for Trudeau to send a delegation to KSA to patch things over.....He should simply step over to his closet, pull out his Lawrence of Arabia costume, then fly over there and do it himself.

He likes to dressup ya know:

Justin Trudeau: The Mr. Dressup prime minister
