Yeah. I think everyone knows already that you're running scared from an oil embargo.

How's it feel to be trash talked for taking a Centrist POV?

The Turks are such a trustworthy source

After centuries of trying to conquer Europe they're Nato good guys now who want to reconquer Arabia

Amazing how they know Khashoggi was "murdered" and found bonesaws in diplomatic luggage

The Rumpettes gave President Obama no end of grief for even daring to look in despotic Saudi Arabiaís direction, now letís watch them spin themselves dizzy defending Rump for blowing Salman.

The Saudis didnít think this through carefully. The evidence is overwhelming that this execution came from the King.

Maybe the Saudis knew they didnít have to be careful because Trump will defend anyone that has something over on him.

In this case money. Trump loves his money more than anything. So he will not do anything to jeopardize that relationship.

Knee-jerk reactions cause wars. If you have the "overwhelming" evidence suggesting Trump shouldn't have sent Pompeo, you should post it. You pricks never know the truth about anything because all that matters to you is soundbites. After what you did to Kavanaugh, we should find no surprise.

The President will have to punish the Saudi's. What they did was indefensible. He is wrong this time. If he backs away, Congress will have to pull whatever money we give them, and stop doing any business with them. Let them rot.

Years of allowing the Saudis to do what they want just to keep oil flowing has given them the feeling that like Democratic politicians they are above the law. They continue to commit human rights violations and even supporting terrorism. I agree that knee jerk reactions can be dangerous but as Trump said the Saudi government could not survive without US support. What is good for Iran is good for Saudi Arabia.
Fortunately with all of the efforts that Trump has made to assure our energy independence we can take action against the Saudi government without fear of them cutting our energy supply. The only thing that prevents our taking action is the reluctance of Democrats and some Republicans to bite the hand of their financial backers.
I will be disappointed if Trump does not take action but I do know that if Hillary were president a donation to the Clinton "foundation" would have smoothed everything over.

Trump has taken initial actions by sending Pompeo. Pravda on the Potomac (WaPo) hiring a Muslim Brotherhood terrorist operative like Khashoggi is no surprise. Continuing to hide those connections throws doubt on the tyrannical Erdogan government's claims. The jingoistic reactions of Democrats trying to blame Trump for everything under the sun is just another egregious display of yellow journalism designed to throw a wrench into Trump's economic miracles and throw the nation into depression. Snide attacks on Trump have gone on for two years and the idiot Democrats show no sign of stopping.

The American press seems most interested in currently unsupportably portraying a Muslim terrorist supporter as suffering a seven minute death, dismembered alive, etc., every detail attended, while they paid no attention whatsoever to our American Ambassador in Benghazi being raped and torn apart by those the WaPo supports by hiring them. Democrat Party Press plus Muslim Brotherhood equals reinvigorating Erdogan the Kurd Killer and Syrian War Criminal as an international Democrat star.

Do you have any idea what you're advocating?

The Iranians have been waiting for the slightest pretext to invade and overthrow the Saudi government and they are dead serious about it.

Do you think Sunni muslims will stand by and let Shias take control of Mecca?

You would see a bloodbath unlike any religious war in history

Do you think the Iranians would leave Israel intact?

Do you think they would leave the US fleet in the Persian Gulf intact?

The Turks feel they were unjustly driven out of Arabia by the British in WW1 - do you think they would stand by and watch their mortal enemies in Iran take Mecca?

This would be the prelude to Armageddon and the crazies want to see it happen

Golly! If this keeps up, Dirty Donald Trump won't be able to dance with, chant Koran passages with, and wash the feet of his Saudi friends and masters!

He's said already that he does "hundreds of millions of dollars in business" personally with the Saudis. We know Desperate Donald Trump can't even cover his bets now when they're for charity, so he's clearly going broke. Can his buddy War Criminal Putin pick up the slack?

Oh Dear, oh my oh my.....

First of all, this guy isn't even a US citizen, Secondly, he was a close friend of Obama Bin Laden, Thirdly, he has ties or is a member of the Muslim Brotherhood, Lastly, he's a fake news WAPO reporter. We'd be jeopardizing a strong US - Saudi alliance against Islamofacism in the ME, worldwide economic instability, safety and security for Israeli citizens, a multi BILLION arms deal which would create thousands of jobs and money for our economy.

I wouldn't put it past the Turks or Iranians to have cooked up this incident - both once ruled Mecca and consider it theirs

Erdogan is a fanatic but my bet would be on the Iranians with ex-KGB help - plus they got a load of cash - probably untraceable - from Obama that would finance the bribes and payoffs needed while implicating their ancient enemies the Turks

What stuns me is the people I thought were sensible swallowing bait dangled by the irresponsible toads in the MSM like candy

It will be making a big comeback after November 6th. Hope they save a cell for Obama too.
