Democrats Attack Trump Over Saudi Terrorist Attack

Democrats Attack Trump Over Saudi Terrorist Attack

We are hearing rumblings that Trump should have some of the responsibility placed on him for the Saudi attack on our navy base over the weekend, but should he?

I opened my Yahoo news site, there plastered on the top was the title “For Trump, Instinct After Florida Killings Is Simple: Protect Saudis,” I remember looking at this, finding myself rather confused by the double standards of the left, in this case, the news site, The New York Times.

Remember turning to my wife when I read it, I asked her, “Why is it that while there have only been 2 attacks in the US with Saudi radicals since 2001, we hear that all Saudi’s are associated with this guilt, but we have more murders, theft, rape, and robberies from illegals crossing our border every day, we are told by the same people it is wrong to judge all by the actions of a few?”

I find it astounding the party that wants to demand we open our borders, allow all who wish to come into our nation, free access, yet they want to curtail and attack one nation that has not had huge issues here after two attacks?

My brother, who many times aids me in making sense of it all said, “It is not the Saudi’s the left is angry at, after all, they had no problem when President Obama was graveling and bowing to their king, it is the fact that Trump gets along with them, this is what is bringing on the attack!”

I know my bringing this up will bring on attacks, but make no mistake, I see Islam and Radical Islam for what it is, have written articles about this, but the attack against Saudi’s while ignoring the many crimes by illegals is hypocritical.

Saudi Arabia is a radical Islamic country that now is going through changes, much of this is brought up by the one ruling the country from behind the throne, Mohammad bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, or MbS, as many refer to him.

His rule over Saudi Arabis is much due to the condition of his father, King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, who has been King since January of 2015. It was the shakeup he initiated, up to his rule, all kings were the sons of Ibn Saud, the first king of Saudi Arabia, his son MbS will be the first crown prince and King, when he takes the throne that is not a son of the first King.

The modernization of the nation is not much, according to Western standards, but being a fundamental Islamic nation, that women are finally able to hold jobs, drive a car without a male in the vehicle is a big step for them. Saudi Arabia is one of the more oppressive nations in the Arab world. They carry out capital punishment for leaving Islam, literally cut off hands and limbs for crimes, flog and behead people on a regular base, but MbS is trying to change this.

I have shown a little history because I don’t want it mistaken that I see Saudi Arabia for anything other then what it is. Still, the problem I have is the fact that there is very little Terror from them that have struck the US, while we are dealing with crimes every day that dwarf what Saudi nationals have done over the last 18 years.

To howl about one group, yet ignore the other is a lie, a very hypocritical one at that, but the left doesn’t care, their TDS is so strong they will attack because of their hatred for Trump.

We need to support people like MbS, the support for changes that have happened and must continue to happen to be encouraged. I must add, it is equally important to condemn him when he has done things wrong.

The left loves to yell about the Saudi dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi, the one that was killed in the Saudi Embassy in Turkey, the fact that Saudi Arabia was involved. The intelligence agencies state that MbS may have been involved, but let’s be real here, that is the way things are done there, I have little doubt MbS was involved, but nothing can or will be done, so crying over something we have no power over makes no sense.

For legislators to demand that Saudi Arabia remove him from the line to the throne is both rediculous and rather stupid, would we allow another nation to tell us how the succession to the oval office be conducted? And if you are going to yell about him, why is it that the same people ignore the other Arab rulers that do far worse?
