Remember to pay for your news.  The freedom of the press comes at a high price for some.

- they suffocated, POISONED, and dismembered a journalist who wrote for the WSJ
- then they put on his clothes and tried to pretend he left the location alive
- AND NOTHING HAS HAPPENED.  NO CONSEQUENCES FOR THE RESPONSIBLE TYRANT.
Terrifying

What do you think we ought to do, overthrow Saudi Arabia's royal family and install different leadership? Break off diplomatic relations, pull all of our military equipment and personnel, and embargo them?

Those are your options. World War III kicks off shortly after implementing them because, in spite of the fact that the nutcase Muslims claim to want us gone from the Middle East, they'll lose their minds about the loss of money that results and claim that we're trying to destroy Saudi Arabia, home of Mecca. And then, without the stabilizing influence we have there, the various factions will have at Israel and/or each other to fill the power void. And that doesn't even begin to scratch the surface of the domestic problems that will result, most notably the spectacular economy-killing rise in oil prices.

Realpolitik sucks. I know it sucks. But we can't simply bring Mohammed bin Salman up on charges, drag him to the dock, and throw him in jail, and the rest is impossible.

Maybe we just stop selling them Military Hardware? We can do that? 

But nah. Realpolitik means never having to do anything that hurts your election chances or donation money. That's what it always winds up meaning.

His uncle worked with Oliver North to exchange arms for hostages and then ran out of money and was forced to sell his yacht to Donald Trump.

He was a Saudi citizen, the killing happened in the Saudi embassy in Turkey, and frankly writing some columns for an American newspaper doesn't make him someone special. The Saudi monarchy regularly executes political dissidents. If none of the others merited a response why would this one?

Silver lining: Maybe the drugs Egypt supplied were powerful anesthetics so he didn't feel the bone saw dismemberment. It was humane

well if we didn't to crap to SA for paying for and supplying the majority of 9/11 attackers and instead attack a country that didn't do anything to us to the tune of hundreds of thousands of innocents...yea you're right.  Probably best to leave them alone.

ugh, what was that part about how all flights were grounded except for us letting Saudi royals leave the country on planes?

Again, the Saudis and the Egyptians and whoever else got their information from somewhere. When are we going to hold people like Kushner responsible for everything he did with the classified information he should've never had access to?

The guy had a insanely rich power broker arms dealing uncle that was protecting him behind the scenes. It's no coincidence he was dead only six months after his uncle died. My theory is, in grand trust fund kid fashion, he didn't realize he was being protected by his uncle so heavily and made a huge mistake flying back to the Middle East after he died.

Not an excuse for them murdering him, but if you look into his family, he should have been far more aware of the dangers playing the game of states.
