IMO we made a mistake getting rid of Saddam, Col Daffy, attempting to get rid of Assad, assisting in getting rid of the Shah of Iran....it has all blown up in our faces.
We westerners don’t understand what it takes to keep these Muslim Maniacs in line and these guys did. Yeah, the Saudis as a whole have played both ends - i.e. funding the radical beliefs that now may consume them, but overall they seemed to realize they need us.
And now here we are in one of our most dangerous situations and we’ve got an arrogant nincompoop at the helm - one who spent his formative years as a muslim and listening to his mother and step-father bash the USA.
Great. It’s enough to make you think God has turned his back on us.
