Waiting to Die for the Saudis

Post by nafod » Mon Sep 16, 2019 5:51 pm

WTF, Trump supporters?
"Saudi Arabia oil supply was attacked," Donald Trump said on the Tweet Machine. "There is reason to believe that we know the culprit, are locked and loaded depending on verification, but are waiting to hear from the Kingdom as to who they believe was the cause of this attack, and under what terms we would proceed!"

Nothing better than bowing to the most oppressive of the Islamist regimes. At least Trump hasn't held hands with them while strolling through the Rose Garden yet.
Between SA and Israel, we'll put that $800+ billion a year we spend on the MIC to good use fighting their wars.
I fail to see how SA taking a black eye due to their genocide in Yemen isn't justified. I don't care who supplied the Yemenis with the drones.

Unpopular. We need to GTFO. Sell them the fucking weapons but we don't need our taxpayer money and our armed forces doing jobs for them

Oddly, whether dying to protect Saudi Arabia or dying to protect Israel, we get to die in Iran. There's an interesting symmetry here, evocative of a Soviet election.

In 14 hours I'll have a connecting flight in Qatar. They are disliked by the Saudi's and, therefore I assume, must be OK w/the Iranians. Both more or less border the country.

Do not want.

When I think about it, what country doesn’t have a reason to bomb KSA?

Until we actually go to war or give them Billions in pallets cash, I will just enjoy my popcorn.

On a related subject, I guess that Drill Baby Drill wasn’t as bad of an idea as Mr Obama thought.
