Saudi Crown Prince MBS ordered Khashoggi execution. CIA says so. Still need Saudi’s in fight against Iran. Do not need MBS. Saudi Arabian Kingdom of Saud has many competing interests. Treachery is an established weapon. Watch for an assassination, a successful assassination. Clear the decks fresh start keep trying to kill Persians and selected terrorists. American and western hands are clean very clean. House of Saud sustains itself. Come on haven’t you ever watched House of Cards. Question is when.
Today what was once a symbol of American greatness probably enters liquidation. Sears is recommending its own liquidation. Tens of thousands of employees lost jobs, suppliers not getting paid, pension plans gutted, investors less than happy. Tales of woe all around.
