Cthulhu 2020?



Cthulhu would have to bring down PePe.

I can't see that happening.

It is what they do

Trump's reluctance to deal with this (like always) has been linked to financial ties to the kingdom (I know, old news), but I have to wonder if there isn't more to it.

Khashoggi worked for WashPo. It's been suggested Kushner was feeding him the names of dissidents

Haley resigned according to sources a week before the 9th - approximately when Khashoggi went missing. It's also been reported that Trump knew about this as soon as it happened



what is the correct play here? What could Trump do to be "right" in your eyes?

(I know the answer, but for sh!ts and giggles, I'll ask anyhow)

"There's a lot at stake," Mr. Trump continued. "And, maybe especially so because this man was a reporter. There's something, you'll be surprised to hear me say that, there's something really terrible and disgusting about that if that were the case. We're going to get to the bottom of it and there will be severe punishment."

For President Trump , it's either the Sauds or the Iranians as the Dominate Influence in the Middle East Nowadays . He Inherited that Situation from former Administrations .


That's exactly what's at play. Moreover, I don't think the U.S. is in much of a position to act all morally superior.

How about we do nothing a fix our own crap.

We don’t have the moral capital to be telling other nations what they need to be doing when our own house isn’t in order.

Mostly agreed

What I'm suggesting is that we might be involved. That would change everything

The US should just stay out of it. Obviously from past experience, we can’t fix the entire world. It’s time to move on and spend our money on more important things.

Sounds like speculation, with no confirmation.

Would CNN do something like that?

He hasn't seemed to be a ball-passer so far. In fact, he picked up the kicked-down-the-road can that's China which I found quite ballsy.

I couldn't blame him for kicking this one, however. If he does engage, and assuming for a moment the CNN report is true, I think his only option is to say okay they did it but no we aren't going to do anything that would break relations and give Iran a foothold and then just weather the criticism.
