Turki was part of the old regime, although the addled king may still care what he says. But MBS does not.

If MBS is saying that, then that implies strongly that Drumpf stepped out of line and reneged on part of whatever shady deal they've cooked up between themselves. He's warning his fark-puppet of a president to get back to work, or else.

I do not see a scenario where honest and Trump go together.

Hey Prince
Stay out of embassies.

Yeah, it's not THAT prince... so it's not as ironic.

I expect this prince may disappear real soon now...

The US hasn't been an "honest broker" with the Palestinians for literally decades.  They agree to whatever Israel wants.  When Israel massacres Gazans every 4-5 years the US handwaves it away.

When anyone comes up with a valid international censure of anything Israel does, the US vetoes it automatically.

Israel could literally murder a Washington Post reporter and then dismember him and get CAUGHT for it and still they'd be America's "greatest ally in the region".

Wait... someone made a deal with Trump and got screwed? Really?

Shocking!

Faisal was the best king they ever had.

All of the subsequent kings only paid lip service to the Palestinians when it was convenient.  They could have done so much more for the Palestinians.

Okay, that's nice.  WE LET YOU GET AWAY WITH MURDER.

"His (King Faisal's) decision to put oil sanctions on the United States after the Americans decided to give more aid to Israel during the Ramadan War [in 1973 was] for the reason to force the United States to be an honest broker between Israel [and] the Arab world," Prince Turki told CNBC's Hadley Gamble in an interview from Jiddah.
"And I must say that President Trump has not been such an honest broker. So yes, I think the late king would have been disappointed."

Was that a thinly veiled threat?
I don't believe that the US is nearly as dependent on their oil as it used to be, and if only people would pay more attention to renewable energies, electric vehicles, etc...

Yeah, I know.

You just missed shiatting in these threads, didn't you?

Did you have a nice vacation?

I'm sorry, could you say that again a little louder..? I can't hear you over the sound of a journalist being dismembered

By all means, feel free to invite Trump to a closed door meeting at any of your consulates.
