    "In a further sign of disquiet within the US, a leading Republican senator and defender of US-Saudi links, Lindsey Graham, has been highly critical of the Saudi crown prince.

    "This guy's gotta go," he said on Tuesday morning on Fox News, describing Prince Mohammed as a "wrecking ball".

    Lindsey Graham has always seemed like a puppet of the establishment to me. This makes me wonder if an invasion is being planned. This would be a huge betrayal of the special relationship the USA has had with the Saudi Kingdom, but the USA has betrayed allies in the past, Saddam Hussein being one of them.
    Is this the next invasion in a pattern of US invasions?

    Yeah.... no!

    What the hell do you mean?
    Go to war??? You do realise there’s a hundred steps between bending over for the Saudis and nuking their sorry arses?

    Let me guess, MB.

    Neither MBS nor anyone connected with the Saudi government has any connection with Khashoggi's death.

    Right?

    You're gullible enough to think Khashoggi is dead?

    It's all fake news produced by the Lamestream Media and Hillary because the Saudis gave the Donald such a great reception last year.

    Khashoggi is holed up in a secret bunker deep in the bowels of DNC headquarters having a good laugh.

    Is anyone else enjoying the delicious irony of Trump arguing for the presumption of innocence against ... Lindsey Graham?

    Yeah, now that Graham cracker has come out against SA, now what? Two hypocrites fighting. Doesn't matter which one wins does it.

    Yes, destroy the Saudi regime and let Iran take over.

    Sounds good to me.

    Say, is the US still arming the good terrorists in Syria?

    Gee I hope so, that will solve everything.

    Nope. I'm not suggesting that at all.

    I do think it is interesting that Trump is comparing this to Kavanaugh allegations. Not at all the same since SA lied about the journalist leaving the building.
    If reports of the recordings are true they listened to music while the body was dismembered.

    You have to admit, this meets the standard for a justified invasion.....if Turkish authorities are telling the truth. I'm still waiting for the release of the recordings and translations on the internet.

    I would have expected the fanatical pro-Israeli troll Whodey to wish that after
    'destroying the Saudi regime', the USA would allow Israel to take over Saudi Arabia's oil.
    What about new Jewish settlements around Mecca? (sarcasm)

    Right, Qaddafi was a generous socialist and they murdered him like a dog even after giving up his weapon's program.
