Comment: Do you have any information as to the veracity of this quote?

"I summon my blue-eyed slaves anytime it pleases me. I command the
Americans to send me their bravest soldiers to die for me. Anytime I clap
my hands a stupid genie called the American ambassador appears to do my
bidding. When the Americans die in my service their bodies are frozen in
metal boxes by the US Embassy and American airplanes carry them away, as
if they never existed. Truly, America is my favorite slave."

King Fahd Bin Abdul-Aziz, Jeddeh 1993

I read a similar quote in an issue of Esquire during the Gulf War, 1990. I do not have the issue at hand. A Saudi prince when asked why he was not fighting even though he was a jet fighter pilot, replied in words to the effect of, "Why, when I have my white slaves to die for me?"
