Isn't Oman relatively poor?
No, it's not poor. But it is not up to the same level as the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait, etc. if that is what you mean.
Why does Yemen need oil to become wealthy? Why can't it become wealthy internally or organically on its own by allowing free enterprise, rule of law, democracy and promoting education and free speech?
There is no reason Yemen cannot be weathy without oil.
They are a developping country. At least they are better off than they were 30 years ago.
Yemen is actually a republic, which is a step closer to democracy. They do hold some elections.
They are trying to increase tourism.
That just shows you what the Arab world would have been like without oil.
Hateful as usual. Not all the Arab world is in a terrible and desperate state. The countries that are not well off are so because of poor leadership, corruption, etc.
This can all change overtime if the governments improve.
It's nice to see that you believe it is a race issue.
Yemen IS an oil producer.
Yes, but they don't produce much. The little oil they have is insufficient to make them a wealthy country.
So is the border between Oman and Saudi defined or can one expect a different stretch in the future?
Good question. I know with the UAE, they finally defined a specific border in 2003.
I am not sure about the Omani/Saudi border. I think it still might be just an undefined border.
