Ok, can someone here explain a few things to me, not yelling at me, just a few oddball questions here. Honestly I was cheering yesterday at the display happening Riyadh. Until a few quirky brain cells fired up...and here’s what they thought.

The 9/11 hijackers came from here.
Rudy turned down money offered by SA to rebuild.
Isn’t Saudi Arabia the one supporting rebels in Syria?
Why in that case, would we willing do business in arms like this? McCain must be cheering in the background!

Obama OK’d a nuclear Iran...
Trump cuts a $110 billion dollar deal with Saudi...

Can anyone really explain to me what we are doing? Other than a change in administration, what is the end game here? Our security? It sure seems like we’re playing with fire and what? We haven’t been burned enough already?

Its called Realpolitik

Yes the Saudis have been supporting terror and extremism/ nascent terror through their international network of religiously schemed and funded organizations and bought banks and politicians

Yes this bought their ruling monarchy protection from the religious extremists and membership in the NWO globalist club

Yes the extremists served to exert pressure where the saudis wanted it- and without any commitment of Saudi troops - and with enough distance to offer plausible deniability of direct royal involvement

But the question for Trump is - what to do about it?
Instituting a quasi Marshall plan of technically developing these societies without having to invade punish and destroy them
There's an idea
With any luck the effects of technical investment in native based jobs, capitalism and globalisation that result - will do what invading US troops have failed to,do -.marginalize the extreme religious fringe and start a reformation from within
If it doesn't start in SA then where?
