America can't remove itself from the teat of Saudi Arabia

After 9/11 and the murder of Jamal Khashoggi, America Cannot remove itself from the teat of Saudi Arabia.

Jamal Khashoggi was an outspoken critic of the Saudi government. He fled in self-imposed exile in the United States in September 2017. There, he wrote for the Washington Post, until his brutal assassination by Saudi government agents on October 2, 2018.

The late Jamal Khashoggi, who had been referred to by Time Magazine as a "Guardian of the Truth", was a Saudi Arabian dissident, author, government propagandist, columnist for the Washington Post, and a general manager and editor-in-chief of Al-Arab News Channel.

The image of Trump milking the cow is a graphic display of how people in the north of Yemen see America's role in a war that's been tearing into the fabric of their country for exactly four years.

The US is Saudi Arabia's biggest arms supplier. The jets and the bombs they drop as well as the tanks, artillery pieces and vehicles used by Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, who lead a coalition against Yemen's Iran-backed Houthi movement, are mostly US-made.

Even though 15 out of 19 9/11 hijackers were Saudi nationals, coupled with the assassination of Jamal Khashoggi, America cannot remove itself from the teat of Saudi Arabia. With friends like that, who needs enemies?
