Saudis Before Americans?

Based on allegations that there: was an Iranian plot to assassinate the Saudi Ambassador to the United States,: the current White House occupant and his Attorney General: chose to take: action against Iran.: : Since the alleged Iranian plans violated American and international laws, as well as centuries of: ambassadorial protocol, one can argue that it was important for the administration: to take these actions.:  While those may: prove to be defensible: reasons, there: remain: underlying: questions that are largely being ignored.

While Iran was funding: counterinsurgencies and: smuggling weapons: used to kill: Americans into Iraq and Afghanistan, it was OK with the current administration to: maintain a policy of engagement: with Iran.:  Why?:  What words, deeds or actions forthcoming from Iran: justified that policy?:  Why was it OK to talk with instead of getting tough with: Iran while they were actively engaged in the killing of Americans and pursuing nukes?

Then,: when a member of the Royal Saudi family was at risk, action was required.:  Why?:  What makes the life of one Saudi: citizen more: valuable than the lives of American service men and women?:  Did it have anything to do with the mindset of an individual sitting in the White House who repeatedly apologized to the world for and openly: disavowed belief in: American exceptionalism?:  Did it have anything to do with the mindset of: an individual who bowed to the Saudi King?

It’s both reasonable and responsible to pose such questions.:  With the USA’s foreign policies: being held: in disrespect around the globe, with America’s economy reeling from anti-business big government policies, and with long time American allies wondering where: they stand, it’s the duty of all American Citizens to question the motives and actions of the individual currently occupying the desk that once: bore the sign “The Buck Stops Here”.
