    Thanks for the clarification.
    I was too lazy to do the research. :o



    I think signatures are stupid.
    I'd like to overemphasize that the jury went nuts....

    They probably wanted to "stick it to the man".

    First off, are we talking about a citizen interest against the nation of Saudi Arabia, the country of Saudi Arabia, or the government of Saudi Arabia? Do the citizens here have a real means of bringing force of some kind to bear against whichever of these three things they might be interested in? What kind of force are we talking about?
    I am not aware of any active lawsuits at the moment, but we'll probably see a few cases move through the judicial system now that the federal courts have cleared a path. The lawyers for the families can use several strategies, but I suppose they will look at the evidence and sue whomever had a reasonable involvement in 9-11, including the government of Saudi Arabia.

    Saudi Arabia has significant financial investments in the US, so if the families win in court, the US could seize those assets and give them to the families. This would not be the case if there were no assets in the US because then Saudi Arabia could effectively ignore any lawsuit. For now, though, Saudi Arabia has some vulnerability unless they decide to transfer out everything they have in the US.

    I'm sure this will result in nothing and yet more embarrassment for us in some way.

    The sad part is that Saudi Arabia is considered an ally of ours despite the fact that many of the 9/11 terrorists originated from there and the fact that the country is really oppressive to women and doesn't have the best civil rights track record. Of course they have a lot of oil for our consumption...

    That's probably likely. So, should we deny the families their day in court? If they believe that they need to sue Saudi Arabia for 9-11, should we say no?

    Why should/would we deny them?

    Some people believe it's just a stunt to profit off the tragedy of 9/11.

    Well those people are idiots and should try to put themselves in the shoes of the families that lost their loved ones in such horrible ways, just for going to the office one day, not to mention the ones on the airplanes.
