Crown Prince charming: Why Saudi Arabia’s reform-minded royal is courting Trump on a U.S. tour

“Crown Prince charming”

 

I can’t believe that any informed person could write that.

This is the man who seized power.

This is the man who kidnapped a large group of other princes and held them captive until they each coughed up billions of dollars.

This is the man who has for three years run an unnecessary war in Yemen, killing thousands and thousands of women and children.

This is the man who made a record purchase (more than a hundred billion dollars) of more arms for more war.

This is the man whose forces have treated brutally, in his own country, groups of minority Shia.

This is the man who has cooperated for years with America, Israel, and others to literally turn Syria into hell on earth with mercenary killers posing as jihadis, paying thugs a salary to kill and destroy.

This is a man who has threatened to turn Saudi Arabia into a nuclear power.

But he is charming!  And women can drive!

Of course, it helps that he makes huge arms purchases, endearing him greatly to a number of Western countries, including Canada and Britain as well as, of course, the world’s greatest armaments dealer, the United States.

I greatly fear plans are being laid for provoking war with Iran.

It’s what Netanyahu wants (a few years back, he spent many millions working out detailed plans and collecting gear to attack Iran, but he realized Israel could not do it alone), and the usurper king is a good buddy of his.

It may well be what Trump wants, too, since Israel seems to get whatever it wants these days.
