Five bodies hang from a pole suspended between two cranes, a public display which serves as a reminder to those who might contemplate a life of crime.
They belonged to a gang of five robbers, all of whom were publicly beheaded before their corpses were hoisted high in the air, where they remained for days.
The gruesome sight is one scene in a shocking documentary to be aired this week which sheds light on life in Saudi Arabia, one of the world’s bloodiest and most secretive countries.
Another documentary detailed the sordid affairs under the House of Saud.
One question we should have asked earlier was why we still sold weapons of war to this family run Kingdom and we we treated them with such deference?
Pointing the finger after the crimes had been committed in plain view was a little hypocritical. Why bank with them why support them why let them getaway with murder and rape and crimes without consequences?
What was the House of Saud? What were their origins and motivations?
Were they allies or relatives of the same group that was terrorize the rest of the world with their Mafia pizzo?
Hard questions for hard times with hard and difficult answers was the only way forward and the only way to reconcile past present and future.
