Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) said the United States will lose its credibility on human rights if it does not take action against Saudi Arabia after the apparent death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

The torch has been passed, my friend.
Rubio: No amount of money could 'purchase back our credibility on human rights' if US doesn't take action after Khashoggi's disappearance:
"We lose our credibility and our moral standing to criticize (Russian President Vladimir) Putin for murdering people, (Syrian President Bashar Al-)Assad for murdering people, (Venezuelan President Nicolas) Maduro in Venezuela for murdering people," Rubio said. "We can't say anything about that if we allow Saudi Arabia to do it and all we do is a diplomatic slap on the wrist."
Rubio is being stupid.
Too bad about this guy, but you need to look at the big picture. Saudi is an ally in the fight against Muslim terrorism and Iran.
Rubio truly is an idiot.
Sorry $10 per gallon gas here is not worth it.
We don’t even know the facts.
Punish personally the ones involved.
Send Rubio an invitation to discuss this at the Saudi embassy, then step back a little, because he will pee his pants. Figures that Rubio would support a pro-jihadist stringer for the Washington ComPost.
Derps gonna derp.
rubio still hasn’t noticed, if he had any speck of relevancy, he lost it in the runup to the 2016 vote.
No this is not worth it. What Saudi Arabia does in Turkey is between them primarily. Can we mind our own GD bizness? You want the Turks or Saudis to weigh in on our internal affairs? This is not difficult. And I’m not making excuses, I’m being realistic.
Saudi is an ally in the fight against Muslim terrorism and Iran..
Youre only half right.
Guess which half.
Why? And who made Little Marco spokesperson for the Islamic cult and Muslim Brotherhood? Has he reconciled that with his homosexuality?
Its not just Rubio. Graham and others. They needs to find a way to get past this. Blowing up the Saudi relationship would be a huge mistake.
Impulsive, stupid ideas like that show why he is NOT President. And who rattled his chain, anyhow?
The guy killed was a member of the Muslim Brotherhood. Fewer muslims in the world, the world is better off.
Instead of pro-American thugs selling us cheap oil, we'd get anti-American thugs gouging us.
At least this Crown Prince has approached the Israelis (however discreetly), because he understands that God will bless those who bless Israel.
We didn’t cut off the relationship when they knocked down the Twin Towers. Why would we end it over this?
foam boy, the new songbird.
