The murder of Washington Post journalist, Jamal Khashoggi, is destabilizing Saudi Arabia as crown prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS) is under fire following accusations that he ordered the murder.  President Trump supports MBS and the current Saudi regime in order to maintain the $110 billion weapons deal and low oil prices. Israel is anxious to keep MBS in power because Saudi Arabia is a strategic ally against Iran. The CIA appears to oppose MBS. Ron Paul says that the Saudis are bad partners, and America should stop selling weapons to them and stop helping them in their war with Yemen. -GEG

Summary by JW Williams
.
Trump is supporting the Saudi regime that has been run by crown prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS) since 2017 despite accusations that the prince ordered the murder of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi, a critic of the Saudi regime.  The Saudis have a secret alliance with Israel because they have a common enemy in Iran, and they are pressuring the US toward war with Iran. The Times of Israel reported that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called senior American officials recently to urge that Washington not abandon its support for Prince Salman over the murder, because heh is a strategic partner and a “linchpin” of the alliance against Iran.
.
Ron Paul criticized a recent statement by President Trump condemning the murder of Khashoggi, because Trump defended the close relationship between the US and the Saudis, saying they are a “great ally in our very important fight against Iran.”  Trump deflected away from Saudi murder by instead lambasting Iran, which had nothing to do with the murder of Khashoggi.
.
Trump rejected the argument that Saudi Arabia is responsible for the bloody civil war and starvation in Yemen, due in part to Saudi blockades.
.
Meanwhile, the CIA opposes MBS because he has drawn attention to the relationship that the CIA has had with the Saudis who have been described as “both the arsonists and the firefighters” regarding jihadi terrorism.
.
Ron Paul concluded that the US should stop selling weapons to the Saudis and remove American assistance to them in their war in Yemen.

The U.S. gov’t and Media have been floating trial balloons on an Iran War all of my 48 times around our Sun. So it doesn’t seem to be “If” but “When.” It is only natural for a Country to have favorable relations with its neighbor. Whether the U.S. likes it or not Iran will court a relationship with Russia and vise versa, despite them being a former Cold War rival. Culturally speaking Iran has the highest educated population in the Mid-East excepting Israel. Iranians embrace everything Western and American despite irrational Trade Sanctions & Embargos. Freely trading would be a… Read more »
