    Good thing Obama wasn't tight with the Saudis.


    And of course we would wait for Saudi input before proceeding militarily because the attack was against the Saudis, not us. Nor was it directed at American interests or property.

    Before we go off and send American troops to fight on behalf of the Saudis this information has to become common knowledge.

    They put together the attacks on 9/11. That is very clear. We used these attacks to justify making war with Saudi Arabia's regional rival, Iraq. Now, the Saudis are telling the US military that it is time to take out Iran. (Israel is also doing this)

    Don't let them send off someone in your family to go fight over there. Resist this BS. Make sure people know the truth.

    I would really really LOVE to see the Israelis and the Saudis do their own fighting. Let them take on Iran.

    Lock and loaded means prepared. That's all. I don't get what's the big deal.

    Why would we proceed militarily given that the attack was neither directed at American interests or property? Why are we looking to Saudi Arabia to tell us what to do?

    "Prepared for what" is the real issue. It really means prepared to carry out an attack or assault with weapons... as in "weapons loaded and prepared for firing." At whom are we getting ready to fire, and why?

    The US isn't controlled by it's citizens. This is the unfortunate truth that we have to accept. In reality, the US is controlled by the most powerful people in the world....wherever and whoever they are.

    People overlook and underestimate exactly how powerful the Saudis have become. The don't owe anybody anything. The Saudi royal family is by far the richest group of people in the world.

    The White House just called the Saudi Oil field attacks "their 911"

    Just when you think this administration could not be more tone-deaf

    So far it looks like we're tightening sanctions on Iran. I hope that's as far as we go at this point.

    I would think consultation with them would be the prudent thing to do before galavanting off to war on our own. We would more than likely consult with any ally that has been attacked before acting unilaterally. The fact that it's the Saudis has you all in hysterics. They've been our allies for a long time, including under King God Obama.

    Problem with that is we have pretty much tightened as much as we can. Not much left to sanction I believe.
