Saudis are just disgusting. Nothing I hear about them is good the more time goes on for me.

Fuck these guys and their oil money. More reason to move on from oil, but that's not happening anytime soon.


And they know they’ll get away with it because those in power in the US sold their country and their souls for money. They don’t give a fuck

This is from March 21st.


The Saudi Crown Prince bragged Kushner (who had access to the presidential daily brief) gave him the names of “disloyal” royal family members. A week later, dozens of those people were arrested in a violent purge. This is not a fucking coincidence.

Man that's honestly scary. Yet another reason I loathe authoritarian governments like Saudi, Russia, China etc. Hope they don't get away with this.

You haven’t been paying attention to news over last month? Google Canada Saudi Arabia. Our relationship is done. Only weapon sales were contracts agreed to during Harper administration.
Yes, I am aware of the the deteriorating relationship between the Trudeau government and Saudi Arabia.

That doesn't change that the Trudeau government honoured those contracts.

As far as I am concerned, the Trudeau government is also complicit.

What kind of a sign would that send to other governments, if our government didn't honour past contracts? That's never a way to do business. That's on Harper's government. If Trudeau signed a new contract, that would be on his government. But to do in business in bad faith like that is a bad sign to governments we actually want to do business with.

It could also be a sign of not allowing the murder of journalists by your business partners, and if that do that their contracts will be cancelled.

I do understand the real politik of the situation though, but fuck it.

And Saudi Arabia is a US ally again because? Seriously these guys did 9-11 and are evil bastards. Oh but Iran is bad because the Ayotolla says mean things about us? At least women there can show their faces and drive and most of the Iranian and Persia people I’ve met are perfectly lovely . I’d rather ally with the Iranian people than fundamentalist nut jobs like the Saudi’s any day of the week.

Thanks Eisenhower and the CIA.

Money. I don't know why folks keep asking this again and again. Like the US is some moral beacon or something. At the end of the day, money is all that matters to the United States of America. That is always what has mattered to the USA. Trump is being honest when he says that if the west stops selling weapons to the Saudis, they will go to Russia or China for their weapons. And hence the West will continue to be allies with them.

Obama authorized the Saudi led massacre in Yemen because it means billions of dollars sales of American weapons that can be used to blow up innocent people to bits. What happened to this guy is terrible, but far worse has been done by the Saudis with American support and logistics. Literally hundreds of children are dying in Yemen right now. Does anyone care about them?

It’s despicable but both sides of the media don’t cover it. The only place I’ve consistently heard coverage of the Yemen attrocities is on NPR.

What the hell...

From all the surreal news that we've been witnessing those past few years I think this one takes the top spot.

Ok, let's suppose that this journalist had found something against MBS or any of his cronies, so incriminating as to be reason enough to get rid of him. I mean...sounds plausible, right? Because otherwise why would they kill a dissident no one really pays attention to, because he writes for an American newspaper that will never be read in SA?

Then comes the 2nd part of the story...if they wanted to kill him, why not just use a silenced gun in a bathroom or something and be done with it? Why go all the way with torture and gore?

I really don't have a clue that could tie the whole affair together. It makes no sense, doesn't matter how you look at it.
Only answer I can think of is plain Evil and a feeling they would get away with it with only minor rumors about a missing journalist.

The fact that everyone knows how they killed him, I don't think that possibility crossed their mind, so they did it as viciously as possible to torture him.

At the end of the day everyone here is hold their nose and accept this as a cost of doing business because they don't want to pay $8.65 a gallon for gas. That includes progressives and liberals.

Reading that made me literally sick to my stomach, I can't even imagine what listening to that audio can do.
In the 70-80's when the FBI started to coin the term"serial killer" they used the recordings from victims of the Toolbox murderers when they were pleading and screaming as they were stabbed, tortured, raped and murdered to desensitize FBI trainees in the reality of death and murder. Recordings like these are supposedly so gruesome and horrifying they can give you PTSD and lasting psychological scars. One of the lead detectives during the investigation was so haunted by them it let to his suicide.

As he started to dismember the body, Tubaigy put on earphones and listened to music. He advised other members of the squad to do the same.

“When I do this job, I listen to music. You should do [that] too,” Tubaigy was recorded as saying, the source told MEE.
How often does he do this?!

This is like reading a black comedy about dumbest members of the intelligence world doing a black op in their own country's consulate with a horrifying realization that it happened in reality. Did they really think they can do shit like that without any repercussions? If they can get away with it then we need a new organization in place of UN.

Reading this makes me want to puke. Having done anatomy dissections on human bodies as well as watched autopsies, I can almost visualize what happened to him and its disgusting. To cut him up while he's alive. The Saudi government is abhorrent and pure evil.

7 minutes seems like a mighty long time when you're getting cut into pieces.
And it sounds they had fun doing it. Absolutely barbaric and inhumane.

Can’t say I’m surprised. The more materialistic and “crazy rich” that nations become, the more shitty they treat people. People rely on their garbage too much for things to change any time soon.

The world will do shit. Even our Dutch government is starting to downplay it.

The Saudis are too far up our asses. And with our I mean almost the complete western world.

Imagine if a country like Russia or Turkey did this. Hell any other country besides Saudi Arabia.

Yep cant see anybody doing anything about this. Seriously in one week people will have forgotten about this. Its just news.

Literally nothing happened with MH17, because the dutch and malaysia were too small to do anything about it. Same will happen here because its just one man. Even if the president of united states was killed by the saudis i doubt anything would happen to bring the real killers to justice and i mean the real masterminds not the ones that did the killing. Protected species and all that.
