Enough Moral Indignation Over the Saudis

by | Nov 21, 2018 |

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Ok, time for all the holier-than-thou members of Congress and news media to shut up about Saudi Arabia.
Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi was a supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood, a recognized terrorist organization. While his death was obviously gruesome and certainly mishandled by the Saudis, it’s time to bring all the pontificating and moral indignation going on among politicians and news organizations to an end. The interests of the United States trumps – no pun intended – the desire to throw stones from inside a glass house.
If one wants to question what other nations do in what they believe to be their own national interest maybe we need to consider our own actions over the years. I can assure you the Saudis and other countries are quite aware of what the word “hypocrite” means.
A few years ago we snuck into a sovereign nation and put a bullet right between the eyes of Osama bin Laden because we considered him to be an enemy of the United States. And we shot up a few other people and threatened to shoot quite a few more – including the innocent citizens of the sovereign nation whose borders we violated, while we were there trying to get America’s most wanted terrorist. But he and his followers were our enemies so we felt justified in what we did!
I could go on and on and on, the list of actions that we’ve taken in what we believed to be our national interests over the years is quite extensive. We always believed we held the moral high ground.
Hell, we invaded and went to war in Iraq and Afghanistan against extremists like the Muslim Brotherhood. And we killed a lot of people in those countries because we believed it to be in our national interests.
I could care less if Khashoggi was a ‘journalist’. More than that he was an advocate for the Muslim Brotherhood. A group that Al Qaeda founders Osama bin Laden and Ayman al-Zawahiri, as well as ISIS leader Abu Bakr al Baghdadi all once belonged to. We got one, the other two still have a price on their heads placed there by the United States, just waiting to be collected.
If the Saudis viewed Khashoggi and the Muslim Brotherhood as a threat to the reforms and the direction that the Crown Prince was trying to take the kingdom, and they deemed it necessary to ‘eliminate’ him, who are we of all people – considering our own history – to object to the national security decisions of another sovereign nation!
It’s time to just let this Saudi scandal fade away. Perhaps ‘back channel’ a message to them letting them know we don’t like what happened, and suggest they show better judgment and restraint in the future. Which I’m sure has already been done.
And then we need to tell our politicians to shut the hell up about it! It’s done and over, the Saudis have been severely chastised around the world. Even within the Kingdom I’m betting the Crown Prince has found his position weakened. 
With all of the international outrage it’s curious that the rest of the world isn’t willing to cut their economic ties or financial arrangements and deals with the Saudis over this situation. Why? Because it’s not in their national interests.
The other consideration is the Turks, Qatar, and Iran, who all certainly have a vested interest in seeing the Saudi regime harmed. The Turks and Qatar are intense Gulf rivals of the Saudis and supporters themselves of the Muslim Brotherhood, and Iran and Saudi Arabia are involved in a proxy war in Yemen over Iranian incursions into the Gulf Region. Those three nations are more than willing to keep the fires of criticism stoked against the Saudis. Including planting ‘fake news’ to further their efforts.
President Trump is right in standing firm with the Saudis. Our national interests are clear, and standing with Saudi Arabia is in our national interest. Regardless of what the holier-than-thou might claim.

The Soviet State, American Style!

The Soviet State, American Style!

With mandates’ success, political orders for social control will continue to grow. We are experiencing tyranny by dictatorship. Biden’s administration is a crime syndicate specializing in bribery and extortion. Demanding the entire population be injected by unproven but already demonstrably dangerous vaccines, is revealing to us the very essence of the Soviet state, American style. If they get away with it, the mandated vaccinations will be just the beginning…

The Truth Behind the Soviet-Era Supply Chain Crisis

The Truth Behind the Soviet-Era Supply Chain Crisis

The latest bottleneck in the supply chain is the hundreds of container ships waiting to be unloaded in West Coast ports like Los Angeles and San Diego. The mainstream media tell us the cause is a shortage of truck drivers. Now we find out that there ARE enough drivers (for the Ports, at least). The real cause is the State of California imposing an…

The Covid Gene Therapy Shot and Its Approval or Not

The Covid Gene Therapy Shot and Its Approval or Not

As if the stench wasn’t enough, until this fake Pfizer approval, pushed through with the complicity of a fake president, elected by fake votes, and pushed by the fake media, until today the fastest approval for a vaccine ever took five years – which was for Ebola, that kills ~50% of its victims. By contrast, we have around just six months of safety data for the Covid shot until approval, and the survival rate is 99.997 if you are under 21 and not far below that even up to age 70…

America’s Decline is a Choice

America’s Decline is a Choice

Many in America think that America needs to be brought down to size. Barack Obama once said, “My legacy will be an America brought down to the level of the rest of the world,” and though Obama was not able to realize this ambition, the Biden Administration is moving full speed ahead with plans to weaken the United States militarily and economically, destroying the wealth of the American people in the process…

BLM Joins MAGA in Extraordinary Backlash against Dems

BLM Joins MAGA in Extraordinary Backlash against Dems

Marching alongside residents like John Tabacco, NYC Conservative Activist and host of the Newsmax show “Wiseguys” were equally incensed New Yorkers like Rev Kevin McCall, a BLM activist. Where MAGA rally-goers generally remain lawful and peaceful, unlike what mainstream media likes to portray, BLM protesters have no such parameters. McCall “made it clear to the crowd that sometimes civil disobedience is the only way to get the government to listen.”

19 Biden Policies Designed to Destroy the Middle-Class

19 Biden Policies Designed to Destroy the Middle-Class

The dark forces behind the scenes working to reshape the U.S. are not stupid. It’s clear they’re working to destabilize society, with the long-term objective being to get them the power to transform America! The enemy of the Biden Cabal are clearly those terrible middle-class deplorables who cling to their guns and Bibles. It’s all those creepy people who go to work every day, pay their taxes, obey the law…

School Transfers Gender-Fluid Boy to Another School to Rape Again

School Transfers Gender-Fluid Boy to Another School to Rape Again

The latest mutation is “gender fluid” people – you can be a man one day, a woman the next day, then back to a man, and then whatever suits you. The predictable result? Rapists can now claim to be female whenever it helps them to rape. This rapist wore a skirt, entered the girl’s restroom, then raped a girl. Twice. Enabled and abetted by the school authorities, who knowingly transferred him to another school where he promptly committed the same crime all over again…

Biden Blunders Make Trump Tweets Sound Like Music

Biden Blunders Make Trump Tweets Sound Like Music

Politically biased private communication monopolies have canceled social media accounts of a duly elected sitting president, along with blocking scandalous information regarding foreign influence-peddling by his opponent just prior to the 2020 election. First Amendment rights are being routinely abridged through an ever-creeping ideologically…
