apparently the turks had bugged the saudi embassy 

 

and have tapes of the torture, murder, cutting up and removal

 

of the critical saudi journalist

 

who had dropped in to his embassy in turkey to register a marriage 

 

after a week of denials

 

the best the saudis have been able to come up with

 

is that he may have died during excessive interrogation 

 

by overly enthusiastic + rogue question team

 

almost enough to make me buy an electric car

 

like putin with his death squads

 

absolute power

 

corrupts absolutely

 

and this new saudi prince

 

had so far

 

killed his way to the top

 

without question 

 

In November, Mohammed ordered the arrest of hundreds of members of the royal family and the business elite, imprisoning them in the opulent Ritz-Carlton hotel. Many would later allege physical abuse and the death of at least one person under torture. The palace said they were corrupt, and most were eventually released after giving up substantial portions of their fortunes.

not sure it's muslims per se

 

more that the western world has generally moved on from (slack) state-sponsored assassinations

 

and if caught, expect to political heads-to-roll 

 

this may be somewhat naive 

 

but we little people expect our leaders to make the "cost" 

 

of this 'botched'? operation higher than the perceived value gained

 

do our leaders have it in them?

 

jacinda? (fuggetabout nose-in-the-trough-winston and his petty utu plays)

 

ex-seminarian tony abbott + ex-aussie pm

 

couldn't understand why people were worried about the syrian civil war

 

"guys guys guys, this is the bad guys

 

killing the bad guys"

I don't think its right to blame this on a religion.

You don't think America hasn't carried out renditions and torture recently?

And would we know if one or two of them went "missing" (murdered) along the way?

 

Don't understand why America needed a secure military interrogation camp in Cuba? Clue, if were on American soil they need to comply with American laws around torture and murder.

 

sh*t, even NZ SAS soldiers delivered men to the US for rendition and or torture, in the last decade. Fact.

 

The big question is, how will Trump squirm out of sanctions on his best buddies? $300 bil in arms deals and more oil than you need to crash the global economy, if they decide to turn the taps off for just a short time...

Not a fan of Saudi at all - among other things they export religious extremism 

 

Not a fan of Israel either . . 

 

And of course the US has used drones and other means to assassinate real or perceived enemies - including some US citizens without trial. 

 

And this is not good either  . .   https://www.democrac...eni_politicians

 

what could possibly go wrong ?

Mike Pompeo congratulates King Salman on the assassination of Jamal Khashoggi.

"The world is a safer place with one less pesky journalist" stated a beaming US State Secretary.

Trump has no need to squirm, he would gladly trade a dead journo for cash. This is about the US senate and their craven lust for power

The $300 billion in arms sales is fake news along with American dependance on foreign oil. 

 

Start with the oil. Saudi Arabia, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, supplied 9 percent of U.S. petroleum imports in 2017, or about 960,000 barrels a day. But thanks to the shale revolution, the United States is essentially energy independent: It, not Saudi Arabia, is now the world’s largest crude-oil producer. Last year, U.S. daily oil exports averaged 6.38 million barrels, or nearly seven times the Saudi imports. If the Saudis cut back production or boycotted the United States, they could temporarily drive up prices, but the beneficiaries would be U.S. shale companies, which over time would fill the gap — and deal a devastating blow to the Saudi oil industry.

As for arms sales, someone needs to brief Mr. Trump on the actual results of the promises made to him when he visited Riyadh last year. As Bruce Riedel of the Brookings Institution sums it up, “The Saudis have not concluded a single major arms deal with Washington on Trump’s watch.” Moreover, an end to supplies of U.S. spare parts and technical support, something Russia cannot provide, would quickly ground the Saudi air force. That would have the welcome effect of ending a bloody bombing campaign in Yemen that a U.N. investigation concluded was probably responsible for war crimes.

Saudi Arabia does supply the United States with counterterrorism intelligence. But as Andrew Miller of the Project on Middle East Democracy points out, stopping it “would be a colossal error . . . when there’s already a strong perception in Congress and with Americans that Saudi Arabia has fueled extremism.” Mr. Miller notes that a law passed by Congress in 2016 opens the way for civil suits against the Saudi government for any terrorist acts it enables.

You got a link or source to verify any of that blather?

 

The $300 bil was the number Trump was stating himself. He has already come out and said he wont cancel any weapons sales due to "jobs".

 

And the point isn't how much oil the US buys off the Saudi's, its to do with basic demand and supply, Trump, and the rest of the world, including NZ is already squealing with crude at $80 / barrel. The Saudi's can make the global oil price (as in oil supplied from anyone) go through $100 or $150 / barrel very easily. They just tighten supply. That is what OPEC is all about, that is what caused the oil crisis in the 70's etc, that is why the British designed and built the Mini.

 

The Saudi's, and young Prince Salman are rotten to the core. But no world power has the balls to sanction them. Trump doesn't have the motivation, he is in bed with them financially, big time. Even though the US has placed sanctions on China because Russia meddled in the US elections, no one will touch the Saudi's. for fear of ramifications to do with oil supply and the global price of crude.

 

Might accelerate the development of cheaper electric cars though... just like the Mini came out in the 70's oil crisis.
