How soon they forget especially when politics is at play. They claim to know all there is to know about diplomacy, when in fact they know nothing.
Conventional wisdom would say allow the Jamal Khashoggi investigation to be complete. Once all the facts are in, act accordingly. But it seems some care nothing for conventional wisdom. The mob mentality dictates: try the case in the MSM and pronounce guilt on Saudi Arabia’s Royal Family.
Khashoggi is the dissident Saudi journalist who disappeared from his country’s consulate in Istanbul last week. He was once on the inside of the Royal Family. Turkey officials, no friends of Saudi Arabia, are saying they have proof Khashoggi was killed inside the building by Saudi Arabia. Reports of recordings of Khashoggi being killed and hacked to death to phone calls of him saying he would be killed have run rampant, but nothing concrete to support these claims have materialized.
Why one would ask is there such a rush to pronounce a judgment of guilt? Why not wait for the facts? So reminiscent of past behaviors.
Earlier this year the left and MSM said President Trump was too cozy with Vladimir Putin and wouldn’t do anything to Russia for an alleged use of the Novichok nerve agent in the attempted assassination of the former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter, Yulia.
The Democrats, a few Republicans, and MSM really laid it on hard. They used this argument to prove Russian Collusion with Trump and Putin. The acrimony was ad nauseam. For weeks the story captured headlines. Once the president had all the facts he placed the harshest sanctions on Russia. Naturally, Putin denounced the sanctions and made threats. Having placed sanctions on Russia the Democrats, a few Republicans, and MSM moved on to sniff for other dirt.
Why the rush to judgment? Why are some so quick and ready to punish Saudi Arabia? Granted the Saudis can be obtuse. They do, however, support the US in standing up against Iran and other terrorist groups. If the Kingdom did something wrong, they will have to answer. In the meantime, all should wait for the facts to come in. One misstep could have severe consequences for the US economy.
Maybe, perhaps, interestingly as it would be, some want that to happen _ severe consequences to the US and possibly the world.
