Yeah. Here it is. Have at it. Who couldn't have predicted this?

Frankly, maybe a visit to Nigeria to offer condolences for the thousands of victims of the Boko Haram massacres rather than flying to Saudi to offer condolences for one dead old despot might be more in order. Bow to the Saudi money and oil and choke on it, you asskissers.


U.S. President Barack Obama will visit Saudi Arabia on Tuesday to meet its new King Salman after the death of his predecessor Abdullah on Friday, testimony to Riyadh's important role in energy markets and the fight against Islamist militancy.

Gag.


Obama will cut short a visit to India to pay his respects instead of Vice President Joe Biden, who had been scheduled to fly in from Washington, the White House said on Saturday.

Muslim leaders paid their respects on Friday at Abdullah's funeral in Riyadh.

Some international human rights groups, meanwhile, have called on Western leaders to condemn Saudi Arabia's record of crushing dissent and depriving women and foreign workers of rights instead of praising its late king. Source

I agree. And I swear I hate this world.

suspect the security bill will be terrific especially if ISIS could get themselves into saudi for this guest list of despots all together.

Your point is quite correct in my view and would refer to a lot of other countries where interference from foreign governments has happened recently. However old our leaders get they never learn from their mistakes.

Condolences?? Right!! They want a role in politics there. Also they want them to keep supplying combatants as most groups that the USA are being fought against were created by the USA, Saudi Arabia, Israel. Just another way to rob from them and the USA citizens to make the rich that bribe the gov richer. Now new prime rate decrease for car loans. That will end up like the other forced bubbles ended too. Rob from the average citizen and give to the rich.

Saudi royals are against Western society and values. Western leaders are against Saudi society and their values.

And they all come together through devotion to wealth and power. Hypocrites!!

The King was over 90 years old. They should just have a party and be done with it. I am fairly certain that his family is rather happy about it in many ways.

Why the world leaders have to travel all that way, putting everything else on hold for a ninety year old that died is a bit beyond me.

Was not 'untimely' or 'unexpected' was it now.

But hay, any excuse for a get together. I wonder if Obama is going to be cracking jokes and laughing at this one.

We all die, it is a fact of life.

So, a bunch of people are killed in France, for exercising free speech, and he sends John Kerry, and James Taylor (late, and most likely due to the public reaction of not going at all).

No one is sent to show support for Nigeria, against Boko Haram.

The King of Saudi Arabia (whose family is known to bankroll terrorism in the U.S., and many other places) dies, and he (Obama) drops everything to go pay his respects...

Sounds about par for the course, as far as this guy is concerned.

***EDIT TO ADD***
Someone, please explain to me again, how is Barack Obama NOT an Islamic terrorist sympathizer...

I can't believe any apparently elected person can even say the word "king" in 2015 without straight up laughing their ass off.

Every time I think of it, I remember the opening of Monty Python and the Holy Grail, and think anybody who believes in the legitimacy of a king has to be stupider than a middle-age peasant.

The only significance of his death is this opens the door to releasing the redacted 28 pages from the 911 Report.

Ha! Feel free to hold your breath on that, if you think it will actually answer any of the questions that remain from 9/11. The government is not going to give out anything that goes against the official narrative.

Tool ate to change it.


You know...for just a brief shininig moment, I had hope he wouldn't go.

Then again, they'd probably nuke us or something if he didn't.

Meh I don't think Boko Haram and Charlie compare. I'm not in the least upset he didn't go to Paris. It bugs me that he's going to SA.

ETA: I don't think he's a Muslim or a terrorist but i certainly think he works for some...those some in the controlling cabal, among whom are probably a few Saudi kings and princes.

It's a security risk to travel to France with other world leaders, but not a security risk to go to Saudi Arabia with other world leaders? I'm sorry, but just when I think I couldn't be more suprised by this joke of a president, I'm proven wrong.

The excuse I thought I heard was security and not enough notice. It takes time to move a president.

Not enough notice is nothing more than an excuse. They have the logistical manpower to move the president anywhere he wants to go on a whim.

I apologize if I come across crass, that's not my intent. I really just do not like the priorities of the man that is representing my country.

Of course they do. And enough security too. But I'm still not concerned he didn't go to Paris.
