    Guy, Your last line says it all; not one "blob" or religion can save this country, May be only Mueller can, but I'm afraid his hands will be tied in no time. The Titanic is at the point of hitting the iceberg. Amen

    Yes your last line says it all; I guess this country is too dumb to realize what is going on. I guess they have their shades on and keep on living in la la land. Looking at the total picture, how can any country doing all of this survive?

    I have said this before (earlier posts), but I view the Saudi people and culture as being antithetical to that of the United States. It is a culture married for a long, long time to Wahhabism, an extreme form of Sunni Islam where anti-USA sentiment is taught in their global madrassas. Saudi's have no intellectual thought, and have contributed in no meaningful way to the advancement of science, arts or just about anything the western world cherishes. Ever since the Sunni Muslim religious rulers 400 years ago blocked Ijtihad, the exercise of critical thinking and independent judgment, their society has disintegrated into an empty void of lifeless religious zealots full of hate and loathing for western ways.

    Saudi-Americans in the United States find that they are incapable of fitting or melding into our society because of the indoctrination from birth into Wahhabism. In contrast the Iranian-Americans in our country have contributed to it's richness and intellectual thought. Just take a look at the Wikipedia websites for these two demographics and compare.

    Wikipedia: Saudi-Americans

    Wikipedia: Iranian-Americans

    One of the world's biggest blunders was the CIA- British sponsored coup that overthrew the democratically elected government of Iran in 1953 to get their grubby hands on the oil. I've written about that before so I won't go into it again.

    The bottom line is that I believe that the United States lost a friend in Iran with the 1953 coup and ensuing events. How would history be different now if we were aligned with the Iranians in the Middle East instead of the despicable Saudis?

    My opinion.

    Schmidt, yes an well written piece. You are absolutely correct; on my travels I found out exactly the same thing. But yeah Pence made an total ass out of himself to tell the Europeans to step out of the Iran nuke deal. I hope Europe sticks to that.

    Yes Trump is fond of all the crooks in the world; thus no wonder that there is an shift in "power blocks"

    Also if he appoints Ivanka to the UN, I guess forget the UN then as well.

    What else can Crying go wrong?

    New York Times, February 19, 2019: House Opens Inquiry Into Proposed U.S. Nuclear Venture in Saudi Arabia

    House Democrats released a 24 page report stating that Trump’s former national security adviser, Michael Flynn, and other White House officials were involved in pushing for the building of nuclear power plants in Saudi Arabia despite repeated legal and ethical warnings that potential conflicts of interest around the plan could put American security at risk.

    "The 24-page report from the House Oversight and Reform Committee outlined actions taken in the early weeks of the Trump administration to secure government backing to have American companies build dozens of nuclear power plants across Saudi Arabia, potentially at the risk of spreading nuclear weapons technology. But House Democrats said there was evidence that as recently as last week, the White House was still considering the proposal."

    I cannot help but wonder if this has anything to do with the fact that the Saudis loaned Trump money, and we don't know if Trump has repaid the loans. Or what other ventures Trump has planned that involve the country.

    Why did Trump choose Saudi Arabia as his first trip outside of the country and why all the exorbitant red carpet accolades for Trump? Something sure smells fishy.

    And America keeps on sleeping and has nice dreams about flying carpets with nukes on them. What an total dumb country.

    Just leave the guy sit and enjoy spending more that 500 million on himself for all his wasted trips and rally's. Waste belongs in the garbage; so why does n't anyone dump this guy in the bin?
