The Man For Our Age, by Robert Gore, Straight Line Logic

Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman, known by his initials, MbS, stands as the quintessential figure of our age. He represents the ultimate, larger-than-life fulfillment of the stated aspirations of the world’s many power grabs disguised as political philosophies. That “respectable” potentates and media worthies are denouncing him now is not because he allegedly had Jamal Khashoggi murdered, but in allegedly doing so, had the bad taste to reveal the blood-soaked tactics of their power grabs.

    Its not our business, and we should stay out of it. Its another country, and from what I understand the person killed was not even a citizen of the USA.

    Many errors, especially on Iran, a major source of world-wide terror. Iranian money and manpower support brutal regimes in Gaza, Lebanon, Syria, and they have major influence in Iraq. Their influence is a liitle less in (so-called) Palestine which gets excessive UN and EU money. There is a brutal war going on in Yemen, Iran was the instigator and keeps it going.

    Who is the worst? tough competition, note Saudi terror supporting money was from random ruling class sources whereas from Iran it is government. Recent actions by MbS have been to rein-in those random elements. Some success may have caused him to overplay, but this journalist Khashoggi has unsavory connections which are not widely reported.
    Who is worse? Well I still call it as Saudi, but, Saudi is improving, Iran is getting worse.

    It is not just Israel that Iran threatens, with words and potential, but the US. Iran was well on the way to having nuclear weapons, thanks to the Blank and Merckel. This should be a situation to focus the mind. Trump has at least caused delay.

      I think we should mind our own business. It happened in Turkey, and apparently was perpetrated by saudi people. Who knows what that journalist did or didnt do. We should just say that political killing is not what we stand for, but theirs is a diffferent culture.

    I would like to have seen the Prez play the Turks and Saudis played against each other, the Prince against the Caliph. Erdogan and MbS have grandeurs of empire building. Over hundred years ago they were at each other throats. Trump really needs a historian on his staff. Past history would help in foreign diplomacy.

    In my opinion , This event was a deep state set up.
    The intent was to start a war between Turkey and the Saudi’s.
    If MBS wanted this guy dead .why do it in your embassy?
    It makes no sense.
