His war on Yemen kills children. America helps him in his war. Drumpf believes that even though his friend’s war kills children and his friend had an American resident assassinated, America should continue supporting him because he buys American weapons with which to wage his war.
It’s a lot of money, though not as much as Drumpf claims.
He lies, as if it’s okay.
If it’s a lot of money it justifies the murder of innocent children and a man living supposedly under the protection of the USA.
I do not think so.
Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud (born 31 August 1985, is the crown prince of Saudi Arabia. He is serving as the country’s deputy prime minister (the title of prime minister being held by the king) and is also chairman of the Council for Economic and Development Affairs, chairman of the Council of Political and Security Affairs, and minister of defense – the world’s youngest at the time of his appointment.
He has been described as the power behind the throne of his father, King Salman, who suffers from Alzheimer’s disease. He was appointed crown prince in June 2017 following King Salman’s decision to remove Muhammad bin Nayef from all positions, making Mohammed bin Salman heir apparent to the throne.
Drumpf admires “leaders” who kill their critics – especially if they’re killers who do deals that enrich Drumpf.
His criminal syndicate spans the globe.
Drumpf’s business ties to Saudi Arabia run long, deep
He’s booked hotel rooms and meeting spaces to them, sold an entire floor in one of his buildings to them and, in desperate moments in his career, has gotten a billionaire from the country to buy his yacht and New York’s Plaza Hotel overlooking Central Park.
Drumpf’s ties to Saudi Arabia run long and deep, and he’s often boasted about his business ties with the kingdom.
“I love the Saudis,” Drumpf said when announcing his presidential run at Drumpf Tower in 2015.
“Many are in this building.”
The mysterious disappearance of Washington Post contributor Jamal Khashoggi, raises important questions, not only about the nature of the Saudi regime, but also about the Drumpf administration’s uncritical embrace of its 33-year-old Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, a close alliance that was engineered by Drumpf’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, who was awarded the Middle East portfolio during the presidential transition.
Just spoke to the King of Saudi Arabia who denies any knowledge of whatever may have happened “to our Saudi Arabian citizen.”
He said that they are working closely with Turkey to find answer.
I am immediately sending our Secretary of State to meet with King!
The Saudi government has repeatedly denied any involvement in the journalist’s disappearance, and in a statement Sunday, October 14, warned that “if it receives any action, it will respond with greater action.”
Khashoggi, who recently has been living in Virginia and writing columns for The Washington Post, hasn’t been seen since Oct. 2, when he entered the Saudi consulate to handle paperwork for his upcoming marriage.
This is why America and its coalition are trying to remove Assad and get a “West Friendly” government in Syria The war against Assad did not start in 2011 with the Arab Spring but at least as early as 2000 when Qatar proposed to construct a $10 billion, 1,500 kilometer pipeline through Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Syria and Turkey, connecting Qatar directly to the European energy market and reducing the EU’s energy dependence on Russia.
This made it a threat to Russia which sells 70% of its gas exports to Europe.
Assad, remaining loyal to his Russian ally, refused to sign the agreement to allow the pipeline to run through Syria and, instead, approved the “Islamic pipeline” running from Iran’s gas field through Syria to the ports of Lebanon, potentially making Iran the main supplier to the European energy market. Naturally, this did not go down well with the Gulf’s Sunni monarchs allied with the West, Israel, nor the West itself, particularly as it seeks to weaken Russia to the point of the Yeltsin era – back to subservience.
Robert F Kennedy Jr., in February, 2016 wrote,
“Secret cables and reports by the US, Saudi and Israeli intelligence agencies indicate that the moment Assad rejected the Qatari pipeline, military and intelligence planners quickly arrived at the consensus that fomenting a Sunni uprising in Syria to overthrow the uncooperative Bashar Assad was a feasible path to achieving the shared objective of completing the Qatar/Turkey gas link.”
In 2009, according to WikiLeaks, soon after Bashar Assad rejected the Qatar pipeline, the CIA began funding opposition groups in Syria.
In 2011, the US joined France, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and England to form the ‘Friends of Syria Coalition,’ which formally demanded the removal of Assad.
The CIA provided $6 million to Barada, a British TV channel, to produce pieces entreating Assad’s ouster. Saudi intelligence documents, published by WikiLeaks, show that by 2012, Turkey, Qatar and Saudi Arabia were arming, training and funding radical Jihadist Sunni fighters from Syria, Iraq and elsewhere to overthrow the Assad’s Shia allied regime.
Qatar, which had the most to gain, invested $3 billion in building the insurgency and invited the Pentagon to train insurgents at US bases in Qatar.
U.S. personnel also provided logistical support and intelligence to the rebels on the ground.
The Times of London reported on September 14, 2012, that the CIA also armed Jihadists with anti-tank and anti-aircraft missiles and other weapons from Libyan armouries that the agency smuggled by ratlines to Syria via Turkey.
According to an April 2014 article by Seymour Hersh, the CIA weapons ratlines were financed by Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar.
Following Washington’s decision to remove Assad, its Middle Eastern allies, including Turkey, has been assisting anyone and everyone (including ISIS and al-Qaeda) opposing the Syrian government.
Assad has repeatedly said that Turkey was not fighting extremism but actually fomenting it.
In December 2015, German newspaper Deutsche Welle reported that “Military and logistic support from Turkey was the key factor in extremists’ takeover of Idlib”, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has said.
The war in Syria has now lasted for seven years. Although its roots lie in peaceful protests against the government, it has become something much more complex.
Joe Inwood explains who is fighting whom and why.

Britain and France joined the United States in the strikes in a coordinated operation that was intended to show Western resolve in the face of what the leaders of the three nations called persistent violations of international law.
Mr. Drumpf characterized it as the beginning of a sustained effort to force Mr. Assad to stop using banned weapons, but only ordered a limited, one-night operation that hit three targets.
