Trump: Sanctions against Riyadh? Are you crazy ...

A tough controversy flared up in the United States of America with reference to Riyadh in connection with the disappearance of a Saudi journalist after his visit to the Istanbul consulate of Saudi Arabia.


Trump: Sanctions against Riyadh? Are you crazy ...


In a nutshell about the situation.

59, a summer journalist from Saudi Arabia, Jamal Hashkadji (Hashoghi) in Istanbul (Turkey) entered the consulate’s building on October 2 of his country to get a divorce certificate. Hashkaji (Khasoggi) was preparing to marry his bride, who is a Turkish citizen. Nobody saw him after visiting Khashkaji of the Saudi consulate. Adds fog to this history the fact that Khashkaji represents journalistic circles that allow themselves to express criticism against the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, which for Saudi Arabia itself is a blatant exception to the prevailing norms of universal “approval” of the actions of the authorities in all forms.

Earlier it was reported that at the entrance to the consulate, a mobile phone was taken from Hashkadji. At that moment, the bride was waiting for him on the street, but after standing at the 11 clock at the door, she did not wait for her fiancé.

Turkish media reported that on the day the appearance of Hashkaji at the consulate, there arrived about 15 Saudi representatives, who are called intelligence officers. It was also announced that the journalist could have been killed in connection with his professional activities, and the Saudi Arabian authorities were involved in this.

Let's go back to the USA.

The congress formed a group of parliamentarians who spoke of the need to impose sanctions on Riyadh in connection with the disappearance of an opposition Saudi journalist. In particular, we are talking about the need to suspend (or cancel) the agreement on the sale of American weapons to Riyadh.

US President Donald Trump reacted to this statement by congressmen, who promoted the deal by making his first foreign visit to Riyadh. According to Trump, "we need evidence that the Saudi authorities are involved in the disappearance of a journalist."

Trump:
I am not going to cancel the transaction on the basis of statements in which there is no evidence. This will only push Riyadh to our competitors in the military-technical sphere. Are we going to lose 110 billion dollars from the deal?


Thus, the US president made it clear that, where we are talking about hundreds of billions of dollars, there is no longer any place to defend democracy ... Democracy can easily move. In all other cases, the protection of "American democracy" is included without evidence of its violation.

      We need to learn from the USA and us. And so, why would this journalist bully the prince if he was going to the consulate, why should he dissolve the marriage, why would he popper at the consulate. The moral is:

        From the point of view of the United States - democracy. The Saudis pursue pro-American politics, therefore there is democracy.

    A man entered the building consulates and disappeared without a trace. What other evidence. He didn’t visit the bazaar, but diplomatic corps. There is a difference?

      Or maybe he suddenly felt an acute love for his old wife - and now he is hiding from the bride on the territory of the consulate?
      Although highly likely, he was obviously poisoned by the "novice", managed to run to the consulate and is now secretly undergoing treatment. smile

        Ankara told Washington about the existence of records confirming the torture and death of opposition Saudi journalist Jemal Hashkaji. This publication writes The Washington Post.

    At that moment the bride was waiting for him on the street, but, having stood under the door for about 11 hours, she did not wait for her groom.

    Hachiko, damn it. I can imagine what a Russian woman would do, who was forced to wait 11 hours! Neither the embassy nor Turkey, only the hut burns out and the horse’s hooves stick out of it
    And the rest is "Nafing Personnel, Just Business" in all its glory. By the way, the big question is where there are more gangs - in Mexico or Afghanistan, but only in Mexico there is no oil, and therefore there is order with democracy

    Democracy for the rich always works, and in Russia too. The court can do nothing with Serdyukov, with Mara Baghdasaryan, with Mamaev and Kokorin. But in the case of a single mother or an old man, the court turns on in full. So it is in American cases. For some reason, the court does not work with Hillary Clinton, although it is a matter of modern secret documents, which were laid out in ordinary correspondence. Also, in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack, Saudi pilots sat at the controls, but for some reason Afghanistan suffered.

    It’s interesting how US congressmen openly interfere in the affairs of countries, indicate who should be listened to and read, who should be punished and who should sell weapons. Even if this journalist was killed, then this is more of an internal showdown between the two countries of Turkey and Saudi Arabia, and not like the United States.

    What's the matter? This whole story is proof of true democracy. A citizen of the SA, who is on the territory of a not too democratic Turkey, went to the embassy of his country to democratically exercise his right to die. This is further proof of democracy in the KINGDOM of Saudi Arabia

    There are some mockery in the comments, and nothing else. Why should America even react to everything in the world? This is the Saudi Arabia case. Her citizen, her consulate. Turkey can participate. And the statement of the author "where we are talking about hundreds of billions of dollars, there is no room left for the defense of democracy" does not go into any gate. Is it IN or rain? There is no evidence. Trump shouldn't have known about this at all, as well as the one where the stall was robbed and the accident was committed. Saudi Arabia and Turkey need to start investigations. Then the trial. And then you can hang labels, of which the most shameful and stupid about some kind of democracy. Some kind of hysteria ...

    The Turks leaked photos and names of the killers of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi to the press. All of them are employees of the army and special services of Saudi Arabia.

    Recall that the Saudi journalist disappeared after a visit to the consulate in Istanbul. Turkey believes that he was killed and dismembered there. This is indicated by many facts: the entire Saudi team left the building with bags, the cameras in the consulate did not work, and employees with Turkish citizenship were given time off.

    It was possible to identify 8 of the 15 killers of Khashoggi.

    1. The head of the forensic medical examination at the Saudi Arabian Security Department is Salah Muhammad Al-Tubaigi.
    2. KSA Air Force Major - Walid Abdullah Al-Sheri.
    3. KSA Air Force Lieutenant, who studied at the American University in Louisville - Mishal Saad Al-Bostani.
    4. KSA Special Forces Officer - Naif Hassan Al-Arifi.
    5. Lieutenant Colonel of the "Civil Defense Service" - Mansur Osman Abahussein.
    6. Officer of the Royal Guard Muhammad Saad Al-Zahrani. He was at a meeting of Prince Salman with the Yemenis.
    7. The lieutenant and participant in repelling the attack on the royal palace in Jeddah in October 17 is Taar Galeb Al-Harby. Also got on the video of the meeting with Salman Yemenis.
    8. The colonel of intelligence and a former employee of the embassy in the UK - Maher Abdulaziz Mutreb.

    Not only that, the journalist, also an opposition one, ran into the consulate. What did he expect to be fed with baklava?))
    The Saudis are savages, almost immediately the ax head, especially for those who roll the barrel to the royal family.

    Funny)) And who could be involved in the disappearance of a Saudi citizen at the Saudi consulate? Buryat special forces? laughing
