An arms deal makes me wonder if all that gun grab and billions of rounds of firepower not slated to be used against the American people but instead a Saudi deal in the works? No matter who would have won the election this was in the works through back room deals and there obviously was no turning it around, so President Trump does all he can to make it a deal that will help US economy.

There were many kaabas but "not many thousands of years before Muhammad"

en.wikipedia.org...


Others[edit] Imoti[41] contends that there were numerous such "Kaaba" sanctuaries in Arabia at one time, but this was the only one built of stone. The others also allegedly had counterparts of the Black Stone. There was a "red stone", the deity of the south Arabian city of Ghaiman, and the "white stone" in the Kaaba of al-Abalat (near the city of Tabala, south of Mecca). Grunebaum in Classical Islam points out that the experience of divinity of that period was often associated with stone fetishes, mountains, special rock formations, or "trees of strange growth."[42]

The Kaaba was thought to be at the center of the world, with the Gate of Heaven directly above it. The Kaaba marked the location where the sacred world intersected with the profane; the embedded Black Stone was a further symbol of this as a meteorite that had fallen from the sky and linked heaven and earth.[43] According to Sarwar,[44] about 400 years before the birth of Muhammad, a man named "Amr bin Lahyo bin Harath bin Amr ul-Qais bin Thalaba bin Azd bin Khalan bin Babalyun bin Saba", who was descended from Qahtan and was the king of Hijaz had placed a Hubal idol onto the roof of the Kaaba.

This idol was one of the chief deities of the ruling tribe Quraysh. The idol was made of red agate and shaped like a human, but with the right hand broken off and replaced with a golden hand. When the idol was moved inside the Kaaba, it had seven arrows in front of it, which were used for divination.[45]




Now they don't allow anyone who is not Muslim to worship it


Plenty of other pagan areas I could worship at...who like crowds?

Saudi Arabia has a population of 30 million. That's more than 10,000 dollars per person. Crazy.

So Saudi Arabia, overtly stating that they want to protect themselves from Iran, looks to buy some goods from the US and you call it a "Bribe?"

The word "Bribe" I do not think that word means what you think it means.

The 350 billion also includes favors. Arms are part of it. The favors are implied.

At least they are paying for their defense and that part of it is not coming from the US tax payer.


Great point! For the past several decades this has been going on but the difference this time is that they are paying for it instead of us. Another promise kept.

Did he put it in his Foundation? Also, wondering from the title if you could post some non-human bribes for comparison's sake.

And you have proof of that beyond your say so right? I mean, you'd never twist something for an agenda, so you must have proof.

Can you come back with this story when the money is going into Trump's personal account?

Any physical item that is bought. In this case the arms they are purchasing.

It's for arms. It's for massacre. It's for destruction.
Lot's of arm deals all over the world why is this one special to you other than it's Trump.

Could it be? Wait for it...wait for it....


Trump’s first arms sales, holdovers from the Obama era, are business as usual


It's all good now since Obama started it and Trump is just following through with it...do you feel better now?

No. Not even close.

Please back that up with a reputable source or two.

To the OP...an 'idea' of a NATO like alliance in the mid east is nothing new, IMO, worth supporting.

350 billion trade deal is a good thing for our businesses and workers...He got Japan to invest 100s of billions too.


Correction: he got japan to say they will invest... not sure where you got '100s of billions' in your ..
Like he got all those corps to say they will invest at home instead of abroad... and yea... Mexico will pay for our wall... and the coal industry will see a big boost.... soon...and the drilling of oil in the Atlantic recently approved will benefit the 'US' ...bigly, wink wink.



Invest, trade deals, bring jobs home, build the economy, fix the illegal alien issue... Isn't that what we voted him into office to do wink...wink

Oh so now the Saudis are OK huh? Because Trump said so - after promising to drain the swamp and insisting he wouldn't bow to the Saudis.

Yet more hypocrisy.
