Bomb Syria but "urge" Saudi Arabia.

Total and utter and open hypocrisy.

“Our national security team believes that going after the network responsible for these actions is the best way to prevent a crime like this from ever happening again,” (so sez Psaki)

Biden's "Noo-Democrat" mask can't hide the mealy mouth of an old establishment pol who has always bitten his tongue to follow the safety-first principle of not rocking the boats of the powerful by observing the practice of impunity for the select few. Because everybody knows, "some ARE above the law".

Ridiculous. We should BDS Saudi Arabia and all other regimes that commit human rights abuses such as Israel. The only issue is that the US also commits human rights abuses.

No favorites. Syriia's leaders are scum, Iran's leaders are scum, Saddam Hussein was scum, the Saudi regime is scum. Don't ask, TELL THEM.

Don't sell anything to the Saudi scumbags until they clean up their act in human rights and leave Yemen alone.

That'll really show 'em... a no-holds-barred equivocation from Team Biden.

The US has zero moral high ground here as long as they keep prize-winning journalist Julian Assange locked up for his reporting on US crimes.

Is that possible?

Biden cannot afford to get unduly upset by Saudi leaders. US owes Saudi just that much to make a former president to bow to the king.

Saudi is one of US closest buddies. It will be so for many more years..

So after making the US dependent on Saudi oil again by destroying fracking and the Canada pipeline, now the new regime wants to anger the Saudis. Yes, truly brilliant.

Decisive stuff and just what we wanted and were promised by Moral Joe. The Saudis will clearly be disbanding this unit asap. and then changing the way they do things. even though different countries and cultures and leaders do things differently (as Joe recently said about the Uighur genocide).

Let Iran control Yemen then? Just let Iran have a base on the mouth of the Red Sea through which all the Suez Canal traffic passes? Really? Just asking ........

Last time I checked the US is a net oil and gas exporter. Canada doesn't figure into that one way or the other.

Funny the right beats the drum about the sanctity of private property, until the private property of farmers, ranchers and native American reservations get in the way of an oil pipeline. Then they advocate taking private land from one owner though the coercion of eminent domain, and giving it to another private owner so they can make money off an oil pipeline. Taking private property that way is ok. Oh, and the concerns of Native Americans? Pffft, what are those? Nice people these conservatives. Always true to their values.

A second former aide has come forward with sexual harassment allegations against New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who responded with a statement Saturday saying he never made advances toward her and never intended to be inappropriate.

Charlotte Bennett, a health policy adviser in the Democratic governor’s administration until November, told The New York Times that Cuomo asked her inappropriate questions about her sex life, including whether she had ever had sex with older men.
