“There has never been in the history of the world a country in which a regime change happened at the bayonets of guns that has led to stability.” — Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal
Every major nation on Earth was purchased in blood — most of them in combat. Some required revolutions against a colonial power. America is one of those. Some were the result of armed revolutions against internal tyrants. The Republic of France is one of those.. Other regime changes came about as a result of foreign invasion. This list includes Germany, Japan and Italy. The most stable nations in the world were created at the bayonets of guns. Prince Saud al-Faisal, in making such a ridiculous statement, displays a complete ignorance of world history.
