I can’t believe I’m gonna defend this asshole but here goes: What Trump said about not risking big Saudi money being spent over here all over 1 death is no different from what any previous president would have felt. The only difference is he was honest (for once) enough to say it out loud vs other presidents who would have said so privately.
The Trump Administration is so contaminated with the most unsavory, self-serving behavior. Not one individual from the top down; not one associate from the bottom up, will ever be perceived as moral or just, or even with one single redeemable quality that would shed light on a human truly in need of cleansing themselves, and worthy of a second chance.
From the holes they dug themselves into, and continue to dig each and every day—with one impropriety after another—from these depths, light shall never shed. What we see is it, and foreseeably, it is over for all of them.
"we saudi's deserve better than that." Sounds to me like this guy wanted to have his cake and eat it, too. Cause disarray in his home country and then try to hide behind the United States..... Why the fuck would we shoot down 121B for such an individual. What happened is terrible, but this is one of the few things that I personally don't believe the president should be criticized for not doing 'something'.
I love how just being a reporter who dares criticize their country is "causing disarray" and having to leave his country because as we've seen...they wanted him dead is "hiding behind the US".
Also there's no 121B deal that's been hilariously inflated.
"We have to name the problem: Islam."
"How come Islam is the only religion associated with terrorism?"
"Islamophobia is a made up word."
"Criticism of a religion, i.e. Islam, is not the same as bigotry against people, i.e. Muslims."
"Until we figure out what the hell is going on, we have to stop all Muslims from entering the United States."
Me: "I'm sorry. Could you repeat that after you spit the Saudi cock out of your mouth? I didn't quite catch that."
Trump is just dumb enough to show the world how U.S prioritizes shit openly, like this video states, we have been doing it for decades, trump is just making it openly known and easy to spot by the idiot masses. So again I am really happy he is president. Cause no way hilary would have been so stupid as to get caught in something similar to that last clip
you americans kill a million of ppl every year but when someone do it instead of you you start blaming them -_- politiciens are evil all around the globe and you media are their servent soo its better to change your way of critisisms !!!
and what s the point of saying the birth place of prophet mohamed ?? oO

Isn't interesting how the Democrats really hate Trump but when it comes to War and Foreign policy they agree with him and actually vote in line with his tariffs/sanctions, support for isreal
saudia arabia and Anti-Iran Syria view.
There is money in War and the corporations capitalize on the enemies and allies of America providing weapons to both sides.. The Bush family is really close to all the oil producing countries and the Clinton's definitely have ties to Russia.
Meanwhile the children suffer who are brought up in countries that have war and more innocent die when our weapons are used in those wars.
Just like gun control, when guns are accessible people die. America may not have pulled the trigger, but less people die in the middle east if our guns bombs planes provided in those areas.
It's very easy to criticize Saudi Arabia and they deserve virtually all of it. Unfortunately, Idealism is a stupid and naive way to conduct foreign policy. Values only go so far. The Economic, Political, and Strategic pros and cons must be weighed AHEAD of values in order to ensure that the interests of the Nation are protected. Sure, it leads to deals with the devil but you really must ask if our values are worth the harm that hurting places like Saudi Arabia.
You re making fun of the prophet .. Are you stupid ? Do you know that he is the only person in the world that has more than 2 billions followers without any social media or what so ever and the number is growing everyday .. can you imagin the miracle of these 2 billions who have never seen him and yet like and share his daily habits as if he is posting em everyday hhh you talking head don t even dream about this number hhh more than 2 billions followers without facebook ..instagram..twitter or what so ever ..when he was alive more than half of the planet was following him.. HE IS THE GREATEST PERSON THAT HAS EVER LIVED .. READ HIS BIOGRAPHY .. YOU WALKING DEAD .. IF YOU CLAIM CIVILIZATION AND EDUCATION .. READ ABOUT HIM !!!!!!!
In fact WWE was ordered by the prince NOT to bring women wrestlers, because women are not allowed to do sports. WWE accepted this, two months later they made a campaign, hooow they love and encourage women to be wrestlers - until you get payed more. *slow clap*
1) False: Khashoggi NOT a U.S. resident; just here on visitor's pass. 2) His supposed "Turkish fiance" was a ruse as he had in the last year married an Egyptian woman in the U.S., for which he did not go running to a Saudi Embassy to get permission (who ever heard of such a lame excuse? "I have to go ask my government, which hates my guts, if I can get married!"). 3) I have probably 15 different saws in my garage and I have never dismembered a body. 4) The entire evidence is a wire-tapped phone conversation where the unidentified speaker says, "Tell your boss mission accomplished." How many courts in the U.S. would convict on such circumstantial, flimsy evidence? None. But for the left it is good reason to start WW III. At least with Archduke Ferdinand we had a body.
+MrMollusk7 : Define "delusional". The recent #2 owner of the most media outlets in the U.S. is Walt Disney Company, which of course is the farthest thing from fairy tales: RIGHT???
A couple decades ago ownership of mainstream media was divided among about 25 companies. That number has shrunk to a handful (7 or 8?), some probably shell companies to avoid monopoly charges. Hatred for Russia after WW II was based primarily on the fact that their sole source of news, "Pravda" was misleading the people (Propaganda): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pravda
Now we have the globalist Cabal dominating ownership/censorship of the U.SS. news and we are supposed to sit idly by and swallow their lies whole? If you want the truth, you have to 1) put on your thinking cap, and 2) dig for it.
+kloisle : If you listen to Mainstream Media, you will be deceived. The Cabal bought them all with a few shell companies AND filter/direct the news fed to the masses. Google "reason Jamal Khashoggi entered Saudi Embassy" and you will get 7 1/2 million hits. Read the first 20 or 25 and when they try to cram the adopted narrative (lie) down your throat, skip over to the next one.
P.S. Anything out of Hollywood, especially comedy disguised as "news", is bound to be based on lies. Move on!
The goal of the Cabal is to raise up a dumbed-down population which wants the U.S. standing alone with no allies so they can start WW III (with nukes this time around) and destroy the world. WW I was started with the assassination of one "Archduke" in a small, insignificant European country. While a renegade, part-time reporter is not as big as an archduke, the Cabal news is trying to blow it all out of proportion to achieve great political change for the detriment of the free world. "A people who forget their history are bound to repeat it."
Oh, my goodness. 15:58 -- Trump does not even know the status of Kashoggi. He is not entirely sure whether Kashoggi is a U.S. resident or a citizen. And the way he seems to emphasize that Kashoggi is not a U.S. citizen (he is a resident) seems to insinuate that Kashoggi's life does not matter as much because he does not have a U.S. citizenship. That sounds incredibly callous. Someone was murdered and dismembered and Trump seems to brush it off. It's impossible to sense any type of sincere regret or sadness in his talks about Kashoggi.
I learned one thing from ur explanation! Saudis are killing children buses and USA provides those bombs and don’t care if they kill as long as they get paid ! Both are equally responsible and have no Moral high ground over the other , The World is Screwed as everyone in power is equally corrupt 😥😢
Although US has no moral high ground in such situations but the world needs justice for once !! It doesn’t get more obvious than this the way they sloppily left evidence and fake body double and all other obvious evidence and if still those murderers don’t get punished there is no hope for anyone else !!!
Money power greed assets will only make that person or regime happy for their life as long as they live... I don't give a shit technology will not allow in this century to live forever and become Borgs and they will always be in rich without soul... and they will always need to have an ID to go grocery shopping just a slam on being out of touch
All the commenters here not bothered by the actual killing but ramble other POLITICAL topic is very very disturbing. The state of minds these days. Are we really immuned to the brutal cold slaying and chopping apart of a man who plans on starting a new life in an embassy. What would Trump do if this happens on golden boy Kushner.
#REMEMBER - how, what and as you now see (hopefully) why PRESIDENT KLINTON was..(what?! Tried to find out what's really going on?! Tried to stop in any small way the shade government + did care about anything at all beyound fear?!..) AND SAY THANKS FOR HIM AT LEAST BEEING ALIVE#
Why does everyone keep insisting it's an "orb"? It's a GLOBE. As in, it's an admittedly inexplicably glowing three-dimensional representation of the planet. (That's clearly South America on the right, and Australia at the bottom in the middle.) So yeah, these men are groping Planet Earth in effigy.
Just checked Salisbury's Wikipedia page and yes; the population is 40,302 and their MP is John Glen. You can tell the Russian tourists are fake because they didn't go to Stonehenge which is only 5 miles away from there.
The US has a weapon that shoots ice darts filled with pufferfish poison. Only leaving a red dot on the skin, then a heartattack. Toxin not traceable.. Hmm why would US need such a weapon? Saudis are not quite enough, everytime US kills someone. Its a heart attack :P
The two "Russian" guys with their impossible security camera pictures, and their perfectly implausible reason for being in Salisbury, were of course part of the shitty plan of the Isrseli - Saudi ass-licking govt, with it's "Trident detergent".
So, according to the Swiss Lab. analysts, the substance they were sent by Porton Down/ the OPCW / whomever, for chemical analysis was not 'Novichok' ( new chocolate ! ), but 'BZ' . ( Which also accords with the relatively mild effects alleged. ) The OPCW , left out this vital analysis from their report summary prepared specially for EU /US propaganda purposes . The logic , says that NO ONE was in fact poisoned , obviously MI5 would not risk killing themselves messing around with either Novichok or BZ Nor sending it in the post for 'analysis ' !!! ............Anyway , all this goes to show that any old bullshit will do . NO institutions are genuine . They are ALL fake . All they are interested in is testing how much fucking up in the arse the general public will take and still tug a forelock and keep on electing criminals to act outside of the law with impunity . The public need to EXPECT to vote for POLICY , not 'persons / parties ( sic ) and to EXPECT to APPOINT SACKABLE facilitators of the policy voted for, on the terms and conditions set by the PUBLIC, their EMPLOYER. At least, if the worst comes to the worst, the vast majority of the public can only be bribed openly : planted Individuals can be bribed only covertly .
"Nothing surprising. Same old UK USA Israel crap ---
Exactly, and just how the LEGITIMATE GOVERNMENT of Syria asked for Russian help. It is the fucking Yanks, Brits and Israelis that are NOT welcomed in Syria and who are fighting against the so-called "terrorist government", and the ones SUPPORTING ISIS (since ISIS is a CIA funded organisation for the subjugation and theft of oil so as to make the Yanks hands look clean). This has been shown time and time again, especially how chemical weapons have been smuggled into ISIS hands via US/Foreign "aid" and food. I mean WTF idiots!!! Syrians don't want your fucking food or your help (because it is insulting to them!), let alone your pathetic pity, they want you OUT of Syria, period! Look what happens in Afghanistan and the Middle East after you fucktard Yanks rebuild what you destroyed - the moment you've gone, the locals tear it down and rebuild it themselves. YOU ARE NOT WELCOMED< NOT WANTED, and they do NOT want Western "democracy", education and corrupt values shoved down their throats. JUST LET NATIONS SELF-DETERMINE! So you dumb turd yanks, take your pathetic Yank shallow "holier than thou" sanctimonious asses out of Syria where you DO NOT BELONG. You are only there because Russia has upset the 40 year plan that you had for oil control, using Israel as the Local Policeman. I mean, if you are so blinded as to not see this, you don't deserve to breath! Fucking Hillary Clinton was declaring war on Russia even before she lost the election, and all because of how Russia was upsetting the $$$ applecart. To American's it's all about US and the $, and they will use the rest of the world, including millions, just to maintain their filthy dollar. The sooner the US dollar goes down the shithole and Americans live in the poverty they deserve, the better
My heart hurts for this poor man. He was probably tortured beyond belief and is now dead and it seems we (the US) will do nothing to solve it or even charge the assholes involved. Mr. Khashoggi please rest in peace.
When I visited the UK many years ago one of the places I visited was Salisbury, though my reason was that it was close to Stonehenge. It is a lovely cathedral, though I don't know if too many Russians would be familiar with it.
This is a great example of Trump actually "telling it like it is" and an appalling example of the consequences: All administrations before him were brokering the same deals with Saudi Arabia, but because Trump has been such an ass-kiss they knew they would get away with a heinous murder like this, whereas other administrations would have felt the need to distance themselves from the Saudis for some time. This likely wouldn't have had an impact on the total amount of weapons delivered, but probably delayed shipments. Still, one murder more on top of everybody who gets killed with made-in-USA weapons - directly attributable to Donald Trump's greed.

In this comments section, we see people coming to grips with the concept of political realism. Allies are not born of shared principles. They are created by the necessities of an active political landscape. The metric, that cost-benefit analysis that Trump employed there, that is what our politicians Should be doing. They Should be doing it because that is what actually benefits us. Moral principles are expensive, and while Americans live in poverty, I am not in favor of endangering the capacity to get them out of it.
Then you learn the only reason the journalist was saying anything about the current prince was because his family is actually part of the ruling class that directly opposes the prince, and has since at least 9/11.
Some of ya'all are defending Iran? WTF! That is the biggest supporter of terrorism on the planet. I wish Sadam Husein was still around to contain Iran. Iran is out of control. Even Sadam knew Iran is very evil and DANGEROUS.
