The Middle East is its own power keg of rivalry, no different than various EU countries vying for power amid clashing political ideologies. Saudi Arabia has imposed itself as the figurehead of the Middle East, much as Germany has pronounced itself as head honcho of the EU. Saudi Arabia feels that unity is sacred, and when a child gets out of line, that child is sanctioned – Qatar. Qatar is the rebel child. The EU has its fair share of rebel children, but when children of these countries get out of line, it is not the business of the US to intervene. So why would we intervene in the Middle East power struggle?
Placing the US in the position of reigning judgment on the politics of countries in the Middle East is a lose-lose scenario.
And thus, in the vein of ‘Follow The Money’, we are monetarily entrenched to Saudi Arabia – their trade and economic contributions to the US cannot be unraveled. They have been decades in the making – Trump didn’t create them, but reality is – that’s the way it is now. As Trump so politely emphasized, one Wapo reporter is not worth scrubbing a $110 billion Saudi deal.
On the table – $110 billion. Why are Democrats and a handful of McCainish Republicans willing to scrub that economic benefit to the US? What does the Saudi arms deal mean and who does it benefit?
First: A deal worth $110 billion is nothing to sneeze at – and if it is garnered by Trump, then the Liberals will do anything to uproot it in order to delegitimize Trump. So a “Con” was created. If Trump favors the Saudis, he’ll become media fodder in the UN Human Rights squash court – If he dumps the Saudis, the US economy will tank.
But the con was sloppy. After all the anonymous evidence was found to be laughably faked, the only evidence left is a fuzzy video of Khashoggi entering the embassy – and gasp – no video of him exiting. That doesn’t mean he didn’t exit – it simply means there is no video of it.
And as of right now that is the sum total of ‘evidence’ being used to convict the Saudis.
Second: It sounds a lot like the Skripal poisoning evidence – Theresa May’s MI6 released video footage of two Russians walking down the street, the same week of the poisonings! GUILTY.
The Saudi con conveniently aligns with election time. As did the Trump Dossier. No coincidence there… But given the sloppiness of the Saudi con, I would hope it wasn’t based out of MI6.
At any rate, the source at this point seems to be coming from Qatar and Al Jazeera. The Qatar/Saudi row is waging large and in charge. And a derailment with Saudis would mean a shift to ‘other countries’ in order to supply what is lost in Saudi trade. Which can not happen because of the equities, treasuries and real estate holdings – way too complicated.
The amount of spending Qatar has with the US is a fragment of what Saudi Arabia contributes. But the infighting is rooted in 1) the Muslim Brotherhood – for which Qatar is entrenched, and 2) Iran – for which Qatar is aligned. 3) Khashoggi is head of the Muslim Brotherhood.
And therein is the core of the silly attempt to make a reporter possibly stage his own disappearance so as to ignite a war reminiscent of WWI wherein:
“On 28 June 1914, Gavrilo Princip, a Bosnian Serb Yugoslav nationalist, assassinated the Austro-Hungarian heir Archduke Franz Ferdinand in Sarajevo, leading to a diplomatic crisis. On 23 July, Austria-Hungary issued an ultimatum to Serbia; interlocking alliances quickly drew in all the major European powers with their respective colonial empires and the conflict rapidly spread across the globe.”
Unfortunately, not unlike most edited fragments of history, even the insinuation of Princip as the assassin is subject to scrutiny. Was he any more guilty than modern scape-goats and framed assassins? I don’t know, another blog.
Ultimately, WWI was ignited by the death of one man and resulted in the casualties of over 40 million thereafter.
Who benefitted then is who would benefit now?
The war mongers: The Banks. The Cabal. Pharmaceutical and military Corporations. The drivers are estimated to count around 100,000.
Who loses? Everyone else.
Why did this one death frame an entire World War?
World Wars I and II have been said to be rife with scandal and corruption, wars that could have easily been avoided, except for the Cabal’s influence. The Federal Reserve and WWI were completely aligned. The idea for WWIII has been levied for a number of years, and would certainly be fuel to a Liberal agenda for control, population eradication, and profit – the never-ending greed profile as defined in “Follow The Money”.
Back to the Saudis: One thing that has become a mainstay of the liberal agenda is the fact that they draw their plots from history – as though they can’t create anything new or intelligent. The rape agenda. The false dossier agenda. The hack. Always the same, always leaving a trail of grease and smut.
So who would benefit from a derailment of the Saudi military agreements – Iran and Qatar. And all those who have aligned their investment interests $$$$$ in Iran based on the Iran Deal that was upended by Trump. This would include Germany which is desperate to legitimize their trade and needs the bump in their economy.
While we are left with the redundant question – who would benefit from a disruption in Saudi-US relations – it is interesting to watch Rubio demand the new judicial decree ‘guilty until proven innocent’. Where have we heard that before? A sloppy con and a scream of guilty…Rubio just outed himself quite finely.
