Kashoggi got whacked. Who fucking cares?

So let me get this straight. The Saudis took out Jamal Kashoggi and our politicians are howling about it? Kashoggi was a classmate of Osama Bin Laden. They attended the same Wahab madrassa in Saudi Arabia. Kashoggi has been a member of the Muslim Brotherhood since 1970. You know, the ORIGINAL radical islamist terrorist organization.

The Saudi Crown Prince whom everyone is making out to be such a bad guy, is the same guy who is now allowing women to drive and pushing for all kinds of other positive changes in their ass backwards country. Kashoggi was against all of that reform, just like Bin Laden was against all of that, which was Bin Ladens big issue with the Saudi's to start with. So Kashoggi was a so-called "Journalist" for the Washington Post. Big damn deal. You poke the bear with the stick, you might become bear shit.

Make no mistake, I am no fan of the Saudis. If it weren't for the US and our historical purchasing of their crude oil they would still be living in tents and humping camels. But, in this case we should probably STFU and mind our own business. One less Islamic fundamentalist in the world. Win/Win. We do it with a Pred and a Hellfire. The Saudis did it with a pistol and a meat saw. Tomato/Tomahto.

Spot on brother..."Let's just take off and nuke it from orbit!"

The MSM is wringing their hands about POTUS' vague comments regarding the matter, and spinning the "Trump had financial relations with the Saudis!" Ummm, yeah....once upon a time (pre-President) he sold them his used boat, and rented them some rooms at a couple of his hotels. I seriously doubt he was at the front desk taking their credit cards for incidentals.

I listen to NPR a lot and to hear them you'd think the Saudis just nailed Jesus to the cross.

That's usually a good way to judge things.

Church. Sometimes, I wonder if it was wise to stand up ARAMCO instead of just calling it what it should have been named, AMCO.

This. They think “reporters” enjoy protected status. Bears don’t care.

Cut him up while he was alive? That's irritating, just shoot him or something.

I'm all for anything that makes the Saudis look like animals so that when we finally go to war with them people are ok for it.

Demonizing the enemy is the first step to success.

Even if they're worth 150 billions for the US, they've been financing terrorism for 40 years now, and they should be treated accordingly, say, with tac nuke....

The best thing about this site is the fact that almost everyone takes a very Machiavellian view of the world.

It's fucking outstanding.

Agree 100%, but Im not so sure our government is upset about it too much. The gum flapping is just that. Political CYA. The admin is stuck in a tough spot. We talk a lot about human rights, so when a guy is killed for political reasons he has to do something. The guy was not a US citizen AFAIK, so the US government has no real business digging into this aside from a human rights issue.

I'm also OK with the Saudi's behaviors being brought to light every so often. People need to understand who they really are. They hate us just as much as the next guy, but love $$ enough to not be too overt about it.

I think it was Stalin who said one death is a tragedy and a million deaths is a statistic. I'm having a hard time mustering up much "tragedy" on this one. Savages do savage shit.
