    Yet to date, not one refugee helped.

    WASHINGTON: Oil prices may have dropped by a third from its record high but the famed profligacy of oil sheiks remains undiminished even amid the refugee tragedy in their neighborhood. Saudi monarch King Salman bin Abdulaziz is getting hammered this weekend for occupying the entire Four Seasons Hotel in tony Georgetown during visit to Washington DC aimed at arresting a faltering relationship with the United States, even as the world is reeling with shock over the photo of Syrian toddler dying facedown on a beach.

    Saudi Arabia, along with five other oil-rich Gulf kingdoms - Qatar, United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Oman and Bahrain - have been identified by Amnesty International six countries that as have ''offered zero resettlement places to Syrian refugees,'' making the Washington DC excess all the more stark. According to Politico, which first reported the Saudi extravaganza, everyone staying at the 222-room hotel Thursday through Saturday were part of the 79-year-old king's entourage of Saudi diplomats, family members and assistants. Guests who had booked to stay at the Four Seasons during the royal visit were reportedly moved to other luxury hotels in town.

    The hotel also underwent a royal makeover before the visit. Plus new red carpets were laid down in the hallways and gilded furniture - "gold mirrors, gold end tables, gold lamps" - was said to have been delivered in advance of the Saudi monarch's arrival. ''Robin Leach would have been proud,'' the New York Post observed snarkily, referring to a TV personality who hosted the program Lifestyle of the rich and famous.

    Rooms at the Four Seasons run from $500 per night for regular digs up to $2,000 for suites. The rate for the hotel's Presidential suite - and the entire hotel for that matter - is not listed.

    Reports of Saudi profligacy are not really news; only last month, they shut down a beach in the French Riviera to accommodate a 1000-member party during the King's vacation. A news photographer shot pictures of dozens of plush limos lined up at the Andrews Air Force base, where the Saudi monarch landed with his entourage in four planes.

    The Americans are not complaining. Georgetown's economy is certain to get a bump from the royal spending, and the at a broader level, the US itself will ramp up some jobs with another arms package to Saudis expected to top $1 billion. The package is aimed at reassuring the monarchy that Washington is not going to abandon it after the US engagement with mostly Shiite Iran, which the Sunni Saudis regard as their regional rival.

    I don't know about Allah but everything I have ever learned about most religions that type of greed and apathy for the poor sends you straight to hell upon death.

    True.
    We're about to sign a deal with Iran.
    They are the country that bombed Pan AM 103 over Scotland (not Libya).
    They funded the bombing of the US Marine barracks in 1983 and 1996.
    They are the country that funds and takes part in killing Americans in the MidEast.
    We do deals with evil all the time.

    We support the Saudi's because they agree to accept payment for oil in US Dollars only.

    We're not the only fish in the sea. I'd be willing to bet that the reason we suck his dick is because of we don't, others will.

    Wgas Wgaf about that. I'm not keen on rolling out the red carpet to a rag head that runs a country where women can't even drive. But that's life I suppose.
