They do not recognize they are funding their own downfall.

The Clintons are wise to these scoundrels. Bill and Hillary have managed to divert millions of dollars that Saudi Arabia and others would have spent promoting militant Islam to speaking fees and donations to the Clinton foundation.

While I don’t necessarily disagree with who is funding terrorism, we have to keep it in perspective realizing guys like Soros fund a lot of treachery too. So does that make the U. S. a paria state in total? No. I would submit some of those nations listed above could be a lot more hostile toward the U. S. We have working relationships with most of them. Compare that to our relationship with Iran. It could be a lot worse.

We need to think why the VOA wants this truth out there.

Could it be simply a fair airing of the facts, or would the VOA like to see enough public opinion change, so that these nations would be totally lost to the dark side.

The VOA is simply working it’s magic here.

They’re some of the most vile people on the planet.

If we had not shown them oil, they would all still be living in tents. Their contribution to the world has been a real negative.

If only we could do something do drive down oil prices. Oh, wait, we could drill. Meanwhile Obama is preventing drilling on public land, trying to figure out how to prevent fracking on private land and slow rolling any decision on the pipeline from Canada.

Frankly, if Saddam had taken over Saudi Arabia, I wouldn’t have cared.

Looking at things now, I would have to agree. We would have been better off. Saudis Arabia certainly isn’t worth protecting.

With Obama in office and our sending funds to jihadis in Syria, Gaza and elsewhere I think the USA needs to be added to that list :-(

This is why US strategic policy always should be to kill to the price of oil.

“...guys like Soros fund a lot of treachery too. So does that make the U. S. a pariah state in total? No.”

That is a good point -there are good and bad in every society. In the Middle East in particular, “frenemies” are the norm rather than the exception - work with you on a few things while against you on a few others, their guns facing the same enemy alongside you today, at you tomorrow.

Even though not everyone in those governments (Saudi, Qatari, Kuwaiti and the UAE) are supporters of terrorist jihadis, enough are to make them a center of gravity in the whole war on terror (AKA global jihad) - especially the Qataris and Saudis.

We used to joke that in Saudi intelligence offices, all the computers had fanboy pictures of Usama bin Laden as their screensavers. The Saudi royal family always sell themselves as the only group able to deal with the extremists in their society, due to their connections and deep understanding of the culture - the “good cops”, as opposed to the Wahabbi “bad cops”. It is the same Mutt and Jeff routine that the Iranians pull with their “moderate” candidates vs. the “hardliner”. They are all intermarried and have their fortunes made from total obedience to the same leaders. It is largely theater to manipulate foreigners and their own subjects.

But you know what they say, keep your friends close, and your enemies closer.

Thanks for your comments. They are reasoned.

In the Middle-East, the only thing worse than sordid working relationships is sordid non-working relationships.

We’ve had situations where Russia was very close to a nation. Syria was in the Russian circle of influence back in the 60s and 70s. Was that any better? No. And I think this is what we need to remember.

Things may be bad now, but they could be a lot worse.

Look at what we’re dealing with in Iran right now, due to Carter’s brilliant moves in the late 1970s. Four decades later, and Iran is still a thorn in our side.

The Shah’s family would never have sought nuclear weapons. And yet Carter still thinks he’s an international sage to this day. Now Obama is another sage along the same lines, only this idiot is screwing with tens of nations, not just one.

I agree with your analysis that Obama is worse than Carter, because he is effecting (destroying) so many countries.

One warning that we can take from Carter’s time, is that the last year will tempt aggressors to try their luck, before a stronger President might come to power. In Carter’s last year Ayatollah Khomeni conducted mass executions of his opposition, and the Soviets invaded Afghanistan. China attacked Vietnam, and communists began a civil war against the Government of El Salvador.

A lot of bad actors will calculate that a lame duck Obama will be their best chance for a while - and he will probably try to make a final push to flip as many countries as he can.

The world will suffer the effects of Obama’s Presidency for a long time to come.
