    Been wondering when the US would make Saudi Arabia pay for murdering and dismembering and American resident and journalist?  Twice since the murder the Trump Admin has approved giving SA nuclear technology.

      Well, that's his logic, I'm sad to say.

        Now the republicans are getting leery of Trump's plans to sell more military equipment to the Saudis.


        The whole thing smells to high heaven, especially son-in-law's massive bailout by Qatar when they changed their mind--after the Saudi Prince contacted them--and leased the 666 building for 99 years.

        This transaction saved Kushner's ass as he was in great debt. Coincidence, I'm sure...

    Mexicans cross the border in search of a new life just like the Irish, German and Polish did  only to be welcomed by the very same type of HOSTILE Idiots, and Clowny McTrump responds with MORE Taxes on Americans because he's a clueless incoherent crumb: INSANE: Clowny McTrump's days in our oval office are numbered Randy because republicans now understand if they continue to BLINDLY follow this two bit charlatan their inevitable DEFEAT in 2020 will evolve into an inevitable DECIMATION with Righteous Progressive Dems gaining the Presidency AND a Veto Proof majority in the senate:

    This whole Saudi mess will also come out in the filthy wash including brainless Jared's Qatar connection where apparently they assumed financing or financed or whatever his DISASTROUS 666 5th Ave LOSER in NY: Experts say it's the Jared made the WORST Deal in NY Real estate History but nobody should worry their pretty little heads off because this unpatriotic bum is now in charge of EVERYTHING except Bozo Trump's ERRATICALLY Spiraling Economy:

    I guess Texans aren't quite as dumb as Donald apparently seems to think:

    "For many Texas Republicans, Trump’s threatened tariffs on Mexico go too far"

    First. The Saudis are barbarians. They live in a barbaric part of the world. Saudi Arabia is seen by the West as an ally. Not just Trump. The West.

    It would be nice if we could break ties with countries who sanction barbarous acts. But, world politics is a little murky.

    As to the last comment made, whining about illegal immigrants just wanting a better life,  like immigrants did 100 years ago. Social programs were non existent then. They came, they succeeded or failed, by their own sweat. Had the government had so many social programs then, I doubt any immigrant would have been eligible for benefits. Definitely not an illegal one.

      Bozo Trump will never cut ties with DICTATORS because they seem to control his every move and he COWERS to them all the time and the ONLY clown I see WHINING all day and night long on his little twitter box or on national television in front of our ENEMIES is Clowny McTrump: 

      lol Social Programs: YES we have "Social Programs" and the hard working immigrants of today who pay taxes of all shapes and who enhance this country deserve assistance when needed, more so than this ABOMINATION perched in our oval office who according to reports hasn't paid taxes in a number of years that we know about and could care less about you or your children:

      Of course, Trump loves barbarians, LTL. He praises tyrants of all sorts and wishes he were one himself. I think we'll soon see why Trump & Company like the Saudis so much. A bit of cash will do that to some folk...

      You clearly have not been to that part of the world. The Saudis are the worst of the lot in terms of human rights. The only reason they are an ally is because of the oil.

        I doubt they are the worst of the worst. I also doubt you've spent time touring that part of the world in order to support your comment.

          Why do you doubt Brandon, LTL? Because you don't agree with him?

            Because the truth is hard to accept and other reasons must be found to be able to sleep at night.

                Said like a true conformer.

                People can disagree without searching out reasons to negate the value of their opinions.

                Just saying.

            No. I doubt him primarily because he appears to be quite young, which can be unfair. I've been to a lot of countries, but I can't say I was immersed in the cultures enough to make far reaching claims about the them, when compared to other countries in the area.

            I suppose if he had majored in studies of the cultures, lived in them to verify his understanding of his lessons, etc. I'd give some room because he could lay claim to some in-depth education on the subject matter.

            Plus, if you have a group of countries where women are forced into second class status, people are killed for being gay, men have the right to beat women, dissidents are killed regularly, people often disappear into government black holes for minor infractions....how do you quantify one as worse than the other?

              Simple. The one that offers more equality is the better of the lot. But bring oil into the equation and things change.

              Yeah, young people travel a lot and meet a lot of people, more than the previous generations I reckon. That's what globalization is all about.

                LOL. I'd say young people tend to generalize and make judgements based on superficial observations.

                  You must be talking about the young people around you. The ones that are only on instagram and no jack shit about the world. It's sad that their elders gave them the education that made them turn out that way. Luckily not everyone nor the majority are like that.

                    Couldn't say. I don't use social media sites. I find the participants to be mostly young people who think they know everything.

                    Although Instagram and Facebook aren't the only sites you run across that type.

                    Honestly, grabbing portions in order to put a statement out of context is dishonest.

              Being young doesn't prevent one from seeing through BS..

                And, I did comment that such an observation could be unfair.

                But, for balance sake, it also doesn't prevent offering bs either
