TRUMP SAYS BIN SALMAN INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY – AFTER KHASHOGGI IS BUTCHERED IN SAUDI EMBASSY!

US PRESIDENT Donald Trump has cautioned against rushing to blame Saudi Arabia and its Crown Prince over the disappearance and butchering of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, at the hands of servants of the Saudi Crown Prince, Mohammed bin Salman, in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul. The Crown Prince is the key ally of the US and the UK in the Midde East.

Saudi Arabia has purchased hundreds of billions of dollars and pounds-worth of US and UK arms, has ambitions to be a nuclear power, and is seen by the US-UK axis as the key to forcing the Palestinians into accepting that there are no longer any Palestinian refugees, and consequently they do not need a separate state of Palestine.

Saudi Arabia is also seen as vital for an attempt to do what Israel cannot do, subdue Hezbollah in the Lebanon, before forming an anti-Iran alliance to organise the march on Tehran and effect regime change. The Crown Prince can therefore do no wrong! He is untouchable as far as the imperialist powers are concerned.

In fact, the UK is deeply involved in the regime’s crimes especially in Yemen, where tens of thousands have been killed by British-sold arms and millions more are starving, at the same time as UK officers are working with all branches of the Saudi armed forces involved in the massive slaughter of Yemeni men, women and children. Having been involved themselves in such a slaughter, naturally the UK and Trump are insisting that bin Salman is innocent until proven guilty, since in unmasking bin Salman they would be unmasking themselves.

In fact, Trump has already found a solution to the current crisis. This is that rogue elements could have been involved in any murder that took place and that the Saudi government should be allowed to identify them and deal with them under Saudi law.

Meanwhile, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has arrived in Turkey for talks with President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, following a meeting with Saudi King Salman and the Crown Prince on Tuesday to work out as plausible as possible a version of the ‘rogue elements’ scenario.

Trump has already tweeted that Prince Mohammed had spoken to him on the phone and he ‘totally denied any knowledge of what took place in their Turkish Consulate’. The President said ‘he told me that he has already started, and will rapidly expand, a full and complete investigation into this matter. Answers will be forthcoming shortly.’

Meanwhile, BAE Systems has refused to pull out of next week’s business conclave in Saudi Arabia, and will be attending to organise more arms sales. As well, US Trade Secretary Steve Mnuchin and UK International Trade Secretary Liam Fox will be attending the Crown Prince’s investment conference in Riyadh. In fact, it is business as usual in the land that BAE could not survive without selling arms to, and where public executions of opponents of the regime continue, and are now being supplemented by forays of the execution squads abroad.

The prostration of the UK in front of such a feudal regime is a matter of great shame for the British working class. There must be an immediate campaign by the trade unions to end all arms sales to Saudi Arabia, and for the withdrawal of all British soldiers and officials that are currently seconded to the Saudi murder machine in Yemen, and are helping to oversee the slaughter there.

The only way to stop UK arms sales to the Saudi regime is to bring down the Tories with a general strike and bring in a workers government. A workers government will halt the Saudi arms sales, recognise the state of Palestine and give it every assistance it needs to put an end to feudalism in the Middle East.

  1. This week, in the case of the gory assasination of a Washington Post
    reporter in the Saudi consulate, we see an all too familiar Trump
    pattern, first a blanket denial, then a denial of reponsibility even
    if the first denial can no longer fly, then a “Hey, even if it did
    happen, so what?” Trump has as much as said that already arguing that
    we need the arms sales to Saudi Arabia more than accountability for
    cold blooded political murder, even as he grossly inflated those
    “defense” contractor numbers.

    First, the Saudis denied they knew anything about the disappearance
    of Jamal Khashoggi, with his girlfriend waiting for him outside the
    consulate. Now that there seems to be concrete proof, in the form of
    audio and video recordings in the hands of the Turks, that he was
    tortured, killed and then cut up with a bone saw, the new lie is that
    even if it happened it was done by rogue Saudi bad guys.

    How’s this for a Trump sized whopper . . . it was just an
    interrogation that went horribly wrong, and coming out of Trump’s own
    mouth? They brought a bone saw to an interrogation? What could
    possibly go horribly wrong? …

    And getting back to the Saudies, wouldn’t you know it, on the
    Khashoggi killing Trump is out there personally leading the charge of
    lying on behalf of his Saudi palsy-walsies, with the preposterous
    story that some of the Saudi prince’s own closest personal body
    guards somehow went rogue.

    How about this? How about Saudi Arabia now surrendering those “rogue”
    killers for prosecution, and interrogation by the FBI? After all, the
    guy they killed was a U.S. resident. Don’t hold your waterboarding
    breath for that one.

    Make no mistake about this. Trump, who has done nothing but demonize
    journalists who write the truth, and who has even repeatedly
    insinuated that violence should be done against them, is as guilty of
    this murder as if he held the bone saw himself in his tiny little
    hands. And worse, he is guilty of encouraging more such
    unconscionable murders, perhaps even right here in America, with his
    look the other way agenda, especially if the Saudis are allowed to
    skate on this one.
