Surprizing that execution-happy Saudi Arabia gaves these scumbags such short sentences like that. i figure that's the King's way of slapping these murderers by the wrist. In a few years they'll get off. Just watch.

It is well-documented that Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman ordered the killing of Jamal Khashoggi.  He is protected by Jared Kushner & Donald Trump, who only want to see the U.S. make money by selling arms to Saudi Arabia, so they can kill more Yemenis. The U.S. Congress should halt arm sales to the Saudis.

Glad we sold them $8 B worth of weapons against Congress’s approval, sent our troops there to protect their oil and gave them US nuclear secrets. Aren’t you?

So the people that chopped Khashoggi up are now the sacrificial lamb and will be Now executed, morbid.

What? Their death sentences have been overturned. Read the article. Or at least, read the first paragraph:

A Saudi court issued final verdicts on Monday in the case of slain Washington Post columnist and Saudi critic Jamal Khashoggi after his son, who still resides in the kingdom, announced pardons that spared five of the convicted individuals from execution.

The Saudi gov, I mean the rich elite corrupt dynasty of the Middle East, has been committing genocide in Yemen and the US and EU have been supporting the Saudi crimes by selling weapons to them. Their plans are to get hold of the strategic straight of Bab-el-Mandeb by political shenanigans, and exploit and export the regions energy resources to the Asian markets. This way they will become more dominant in Asia (and Africa) and outmaneuver Russia and Iran in the future.

The creepy smile from M.B.S. reminds me "Uncle Joe" (Not Biden, a guy from the state of Georgia ruling Russia for30 years)!

Yes, of course. Or do you expect sanctions, halt of all dealings with the regime, demands of free elections?? When Saudis demand "jump", Western politicians only ask "how high?". Money talks in the US and EU, all the blah-blah about human rights walks.

Surely, it is not normal to have a bone saw in arm’s reach, is it?
