I am confused about why Trump is considering a war with Iran.

Saudi Arabia’s oil production facilities were attacked by Iran. Saudi Arabia has a military. Why doesn’t Saudi Arabia defend itself? Why should we go to war on behalf of Saudi Arabia?

This secretive desert kingdom produced most of the 9/11 terrorists.

More recently, its leader brazenly ordered the murder of a Saudi journalist who was working for the Washington Post and living in the U.S.

The Washington Post produced this gripping documentary about the murder of its journalist Jamal Khashoggi. 

The CIA concluded that MBS ordered the murder. One of the Saudi team members was a surgeon who arrived with a bone saw to dismember Khashoggi’s body.

The U.S. Senate heard the testimony of CIA Director Gina Haspel and voted unanimously to condemn Crown Prince MBS for ordering Khashoggi’s murder.

It is a sad day when the president of the United States is unwilling to condemn the heinous murder of a journalist whose sole crime was to advocate for democracy in his homeland.

And a sad day when the president is contemplating war with Iran for striking another country.
