JOHN CHUCKMAN COMMENT: THE DISAPPEARANCE OF A SAUDI JOURNALIST WHO WORKED FOR THE WASHINGTON POST WHILE VISITING A SAUDI CONSULATE IN TURKEY TELLS US SOMETHING IMPORTANT ABOUT THE BRAVE NEW WORLD AMERICA IS BUSY CREATING

COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE IN MOON OF ALABAMA

 

“U.S. Intelligence Had A ‘Duty To Warn’ Khashoggi – Why Didn’t That Happen?”

 

An excellent piece which covers many aspects of this dark affair in which a well-known Saudi figure, a critic of the Crown Prince, was simply “disappeared” while visiting Saudi Arabia’s consulate in Istanbul to get some papers.

And you are right, no one even questions the Saudi Usurper over mass killing in Yemen. Or his dark work in Syria. Or his abuse of Shia Muslims in Saudi Arabia. So, why expect a lot of to-do over journalist, Jamal Khashoggi, Washington Post connection or not?

It does appear that we increasingly live in a world where the right kind of people can get away with murder, more or less in broad daylight.

To my mind, it’s all just part of the damage done by American hyper-aggressive efforts to assert Washington’s authority in every corner of the world.

Saudi Arabia is important because of the new relationship it has formed with America’s privileged imperial colony, Israel. The United States is using the murderous Crown Prince as part of its campaign to re-make the Middle East, an effort which has already cost about two million lives.

After all, Israel doesn’t have to account for its savage line-ups of soldiers behind fences shooting into unarmed crowds at Gaza, people who are only demonstrating for basic human rights.

These big-game hunting parties with human beings as targets make the old days of Bull Connor in Alabama look almost gentle by comparison.

Yet our press and politicians say almost nothing.

Well, not quite.

The savages are actually publicly praised for their “restraint” in an increasingly-bizarre America.
