Saudi Arabia's energy chief revealed Friday that Riyadh anticipated President Donald Trump would repeal a 2016 U.S. law allowing victims of 9/11 to sue Saudi Arabia for the role of its citizens in the attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania in 2001.

I'm worried that they will.

They are the greatest evil on earth.

After all the nasty things Trump said about Saudi Arabia, it comes as a surprise.
Here's my 2 cents:
After becoming President, Trump gained more insight into what is really happening behind the scenes. We see Iran as a greater threat, and we are using the Saudis and other Sunnis to subdue the greater evil, Iran. It's simply the age old tactic of "Divide and Conquer"
Trump has no love for Muslims. I'm sure he has his reasons based on information the public will never know. Let's give Trump the benefit of the doubt.

I really hope he does no such thing. Goddamn Democrats though have him hamstrung on Russia, so he can't play the "Fuck your oil, I'll get it from them" card.

No doubt why they just gave generously to Podesta and Democrats like Patrick Murphy on the Anti-Russia Drumbeat

Here's a bit more on Murphy, a Saudi Stooge. Naturally, you read about this in alt media, not Oligarch Media.

We're wrong about that.

Also, that makes no sense. Sunni and Shia have been divided for 1400 years!

Saudi Arabia is the source of nearly all terrorism, has no democracy, no freedoms of any kinds, murders gays, does not allow any church or synagogue or temple of any kind to be built, does not even allow bibles in the country.

Iran is totally in line with Western values by comparison.

The Iranian people may be a lot smarter and in line with western values, compared to the Arabs. No argument there. But the Iranian leadership are fanatical radicals who cannot be trusted. And they are at the verge of nuclear weapons. We know nothing good can come from radical Muslims getting their hands on nuclear weapons.
The best way of destroying Islam, is by getting the Muslims to destroy each other. Once again, we must give the Islam hater, Trump, the benefit of the doubt.

And the Saudi leadership are not fanatical radicals?

I agree Iran should not have nukes, but I have zero doubt the Saudis cannot get them via Pakistan already.

The Saudis are the far greater danger. Many more people will die because of Saudi Arabia until the whole world realizes this.

Sure they are. But they don't have nukes. In fact, they are dependent on us for their security.

Do you seriously think that $14 trillion is not going to buy a couple of nukes from Pakistan to give to terrorists?

Sure, the Saudis will never "officially" have nukes. But de facto, they already do.

We can never trust Pakistan from giving nukes to the Saudis. They will all put their evil religion above all else.
But if we want Muslims to destroy/contain each other, we have to pick sides. Lets pick the side of the one who is more stupid. To start with.

Trump is not corrupt. Do you think he wants another billion he will never be able to spend? Really?

The Saudi's are more stupid? Really? They've had every president since nixon kissing their ass. We've went to war for them twice. . They fund and promote terrorism around the world against us while we give them aid, military protection, and billions of dollars in oil money. How stupid does that make us?

Yes, the Saudis are really very stupid. The Iranians are smarter based on their achievements in Iran and the West. The Saudis can't even make pencils.

Really? We went to war to protect our interests. We needed Saudi oil.

It makes us very stupid for not having full control over them before. With Trump, things will change. We will control them. Our President will no longer bow down to them.

I don't think he's happy with Bloomberg having 4 times his net worth.

Hopefully, but it didn't start well when Trump left them off the visa ban list.

They should have been the first country on that list.

Trump has more wealth than Bloomberg. Besides, Trump is the most powerful man on the planet. Billionaires want power, not money.
