Saudi Arabia: Has Another “Ally” Bitten the Dust?

You’ve got to hand it to The Lyin’ King; when it comes to creating mayhem, domestically or internationally, Dennis the Menace has nothing on him. In just five short years he’s managed to not only trash America’s foundations but to alienate pretty much every ally America had. All the while amorously pursuing America’s enemies with the fanatical zeal of an amorous stalker. None of it is accidental. England, Israel, Germany and France have all been dissed. They, in turn, have offered up some choice criticism for The Imperial President. Now Saudi Arabia, the “ally” the American people (if not America’s ruling class) are extremely dubious of, joins their number.

The U.K MailOnline reported Tuesday that Saudi Arabia has severed diplomatic ties with the United States. To be clear, Saudi Arabia is not America’s friend and never has been. Financier for and exporter of virulent, Islamic terrorism, Saudi Arabia has done nothing for the United States except provide us with oil … the way a rapacious drug dealer provides heroin to a drug addict. America’s ruling class has assiduously looked the other way while the Saudis wreck havoc.

One doesn’t have to look too far in the past for examples. Remember Abdul Rahman Ali Al-Harbi? He was the first “person of interest” in the Boston marathon bombing. Although Al-Harbi has extensive familial ties to Al-Qaeda, Al- Harbi was hurriedly absolved of any bombing complicity by The Lyin’ King’s regime. Even though The Lyin’ King showed up in Boston for an unscheduled meeting with Saudi Prince Al-Faisal immediately after the bombing. Nothing to see here; mere coincidence. The meeting resulted in Al-Harbi’s expulsion from the U.S., back to Saudi Arabia, for unspecified “national security” reasons. It couldn’t have been too serious a “national security” risk; the First Lady solicitously visited him in the hospital before his ouster.

Saudi Arabia last threatened America with revoking BFF status over the Bosnian civil war, indirectly intimidating Europe to put pressure on the U.S. America, submissive vassal to Saudi oil, acquiesced and entered the fray. Now, Saudi Arabia is shaking her royal fist more directly. One war fought for Saudi Arabia is, apparently, insufficient.

The MailOnline shares Saudi disdain for the Imperial president: “In unusually blunt public remarks, Prince Turki al-Faisal called Obama’s policies in Syria ‘lamentable’ and ridiculed a U.S.-Russian deal to eliminate Assad’s chemical weapons …’The current charade of international control over Bashar’s chemical arsenal would be funny if it were not so blatantly perfidious…’ said Prince Turki, a member of the Saudi royal family…”

Ever unmindful of whatever anyone else says, our Secretary of State, John Kerry, insists that he is “confident that the United States will continue to have a good relationship with Saudi Arabia.” One would think such levels of delusion would be terminally toxic.

Saudi Arabia is reportedly incensed over “American inaction over Syria’s civil war.” Our response to the threat of the loss of such an ally should be “Big Whoop.” Instead, The Lyin’ King’s ongoing policy of intentionally depriving America access to our own energy sources and even preventing oil-and-job producing access to the Canadian Keystone pipeline, has created a dependency on the Saudis that reeks. Like The Terminator the Saudis will be back. And the rat one smells has been carefully nurtured. It resides in the White House.
