Well, in this we agree. I despise the Saudis. Why we keep licking their boots I just don't get. At all. How is a theocratic monarchy that cuts out peoples tongues for dissenting against the ruling class worthy of the lavish deference we give them?


Their ruling class jets around in gold plated 747s drinking gambling and whoring in place like Vegas committing religious crimes they would execute a Saudi citizen for and without exception our leaders kneel at their feet. They should be first on the list of counties we turn our back on.


Cowtowing to them is not a unique Trump thing either. We should not be selling our top of the line military equipment to them, supplying spare parts and training their people. We are not under their knife with oil and if they decide to cut us off ,well, they can just eat their oil when we cut off food and the next shipment of repair parts for their F 15s will be C5 A loads of Budweiser cans and duct tape.


Yep, I despise the Saudis. And I truly do not get why we have treated them so well.

Because they treat us well, but by us, I donít mean you and I. We arenít in that club.

When it comes to our government doing things that befuddle you, follow the cash. Our government is corrupt and is owned by special interests. The Saudis buy their favored nation status, and we avariciously take the dough every time. The fact that the Saudis could NAKEDLY murder an American resident alien that has American citizen children, and we do our best to ignore it just shows you what whores the American politicians have become. The embarrassment and shame I feel as an American is almost unbearable when I consider it.

As much as Iíd love to blame the Saudis for playing the United States for fools, I know deep down that itís our own fault because weíre so damn greedy and our government is so stinkin corrupt.

Hebrew 6:8
but if it yields thorns and thistles, it is worthless and close to being cursed, and it ends up being burned.



Take heed wise men of faith. The prophets have spoken.

Trump took their side when they lied and denied butchering Khashoggi. That was despicable.

I would say that dem strongholds like CA, MA, and NY are more anti-Semitic than Saudi Arabia.

Kushner is a traitor and a crook. Plain and simple. He's even approved of the murder of the WaPo journalist, let alone all the business dealings.

Kushner has the brain of about a 20 year old which is vastly superior to his FIL, who is about 12. But that just means he can do more harm due to his desire for money money money. People with his ZERO experience in much (except an ex-con dad) shouldn't be making important decisions.

My friend had to work in SA many years ago due the pressure put on his boss. Friend had a gravy train. Entire salary was banked in USA taxes paid. He and wife and child were on total expenses. For every 2 months in SA they got a 2 week free trip anywhere in the world. They also got to come home once or twice a year. Friend was home. I asked why he didn't bring family. He said he had to leave them there or he would not go back.

IMO, no amount of business or jobs is worth the cost of doing business with SA. IMO, our POTUS should tell them to KMA on the courthouse steps.

Simple; it's called geopolitics. Remember when we allied with Stalin in WWII? Should we have said, naw, we can't accept an alliance with a murderous (and anti-Semitic) dictator, but instead let Hitler take over Europe?

Same deal here. Even Israel is now allied with Saudi Arabia because of their mutual enemy, Iran.
