While Murders of Innocent People Occur Worldwide - THIS Murder of Khashoggi Has Many Screaming for 'Justice!' Of Course it's just another ploy to attack Pres Trump.
11-21-18, Greg Gutfeld, Fox News [excerpt] - Trump won't punish Saudi Arabia over killing of Khashoggi; media freakout is occurring. Which happens whenever Trump tells the blunt truth about a policy we were OK with before him.
So now media is up in arms about Saudi Arabia. After decades of human rights abuses, terror-enabling -- THIS is what gets your goat?
According to Ben Rhodes, in 2009, when Obama went to Riyadh, the Saudi king gave each staffer a pile of jewels. And the first couple £100,000 worth of baubles which were accepted, were sent to the national archives. Even back then we knew Saudi Arabia was different; but they were allies - and allies can suck.
So maybe the boss's [Saudi King] son [Prince] had Khashoggi offed. Or maybe not. Which is it? Think hard. It's a card game. If you say the prince is guilty, you're committing poker suicide by folding, while holding all the best cards. Sure, playing your moral ace might please the media; but winning their approval wins America nothing. It just wastes a great opportunity.
If you've spent your life playing this game, keeping your cards close and waiting, you know: America has the Saudis over a barrel. Millions of barrels, really. And in negotiations, that means you can get something big from them, that you couldn't get before. Like what? Middle East progress? A chance for peace in Palestine and Israel? The ability to influence oil prices? Who knows? For sure it'll be more than a pile of dumb jewels. Source Fox News here
11-20-18, President Trump's statement on the death of Jamal Khashoggi, an old Muslim Brotherhood friend of Osama bin Laden, was fairly nuanced, but it put our national interests and the fight against Iran front and center. He makes the case that Saudi investments and the fight against Iran matters more than the media's Khashoggimania.That's obviously not very satisfying for the media, which backs Iran and the Brotherhood over the Saudis.The media however loathes America and rejects our national interests, economic or military.
Trump not only shrugged at Khashoggimania, but he rejected the left's hysterical push to help Iran win in Yemen. Trump's agenda is beating Iran. The media's agenda is helping Iran beat America. He said:
"As President of the United States I intend to ensure that, in a very dangerous world, America is pursuing its national interests and vigorously contesting countries that wish to do us harm. Very simply it is called America First!” Source here and more here
