Saudi Arabia, as a Muslim country with an extreme Islamic ideology, is not our friend. As a superpower, the United States should construct a foreign policy to submit the country and its gulf allies to our will, not to kowtow to their miniaturized minds. Their latest backstabbing move when the November elections are about to unfold demonstrate once and for all how impervious we have been to their real political positions. We should never trust Mohammad bin Salman (MBS). Especially, not when he dispenses teams of killers to hunt down innocent people.
Maybe, the Saudis are not sending suicide bombers to destroy our cities as they did on 9/11, but they are using oil to harm our economy. If that is not reason enough to retaliate against Mohammad bin Salman (MBS), who remains loyal to the loser Vladimir Putin, then we might as well shut down the National Security apparatus of this country.
THE SAUDIS ARE THE WORST
When one speaks of misinformation campaigns, Russia and Syria come to mind. But what very few people know is how capable the Saudis are at this craft. When it comes to lying, cheating, and fabricating information, they are masters at it. It is baked in their DNA that had to survive harsh environments to sustain living.
To call them master manipulators is an understatement, and the gullible Brett McGurk on the National Security Council who pressed for President Biden to meet with Mohammad bin Salman (MBS) should tender his resignation letter as soon as this weekend. The man is clueless about the dynamics of using power to attain it. The United States should not bow to countries our U.S. forces secure against their own enemies.
The United States must respond to OPEC cutting down production by 2 million barrels. Not only through using our Congress, but also through direct threats to shake Mohammad bin Salman’s ass. How? Escort an Iranian ship to dock at the Dammam port in eastern Saudi Arabia. What will MBS do? Nothing. That should make him shake in his boots.
Alternatively, plan an international conference about vaticanizing Mecca, the Muslim holy site Saudi Arabia uses to spread its genre of religion and politics worldwide. Honestly, a consortium of Muslim countries should rule over the city, and not just Saudi Arabia. Just like a consortium of global cardinals rule over the Vatican.
And considering how indecisive the President might be, he better find an answer to OPEC’s impertinence quickly or higher gas prices at the pump might just rain on his poll-rising parade.
MOHAMMAD BIN SALMAN IS INTERFERING IN OUR ELECTIONS
There is absolutely no difference between influencing directly U.S. voters, using the Russian misinformation machine, and MBS influencing our elections by attacking our economy and those of western Europe. Like we said, never trust Mohammad bin Salman.
Putin is rallying his allies to attack the west and we should directly neutralize these countries by any means available to us. MBS is afraid of two things: Losing control over Mecca, and an Iranian invasion of Saudi Arabia. Play both cards delicately and the man would pivot a hard 180 degrees faster than you can blink. Use our troops on the ground in Saudi Arabia to threaten him, rather than assure him.
In fact, the person who should replace McGurk better thinks along these lines to save our superpower status from being an international joke.
This announcement by OPEC to cut production by 2 million barrels leaves the White House very little time to react. And considering how indecisive the President might be, he better find an answer to OPEC’s impertinence quickly or higher gas prices at the pump might just rain on his poll-rising parade.
