This is an example of an issue where the Trump administration is falling woefully short.

In all fairness to the Trump administration, there are limited options for POTUS. On one hand, SA is a key ally against Iran and the USA needs the kingdom's support in the Middle East. On the other hand, POTUS does not govern SA and there little he can do to influence Kingdom. And we still import oil from SA, although we import a lot less, for now. With the Demon-crats election platforms to eliminate all drilling of fossil fuels, SA might be come more important to us. POTUS has a difficult balancing act.

That's above my pay grade. All I know is that it is wrong to call a country like Saudi Arabia an "ally" as long as they are engaging in this type of despotic and violent behavior.

Also, while I voted for Trump and will probably do so again, I am by no means a blanket supporter of all his policies and tweets.

5 of the men beheaded may have been gay, or were tortured into saying they were gay.

We deal with many countries that are not very nice to their population. China strikes me as the largest but I am sure there are many others that smart people on this site can name. I think that Saudi Arabia is a key ally in the region. Iran is the country responsible for IEDs that have killed and maimed so many of our vets. Saudi is our best friend in hurting Iran. You befriend those that most likely will achieve the results you want. Are they barbarians? Not as bad as China.

American woman loses custody of her American citizen daughter in Saudi Arabia for being too Western.

I love how CNN doesn’t want their stories to show up here.

Let’s try CBS.

Islamic terrorism IS Saudi Arabia. Not linked to, not supported by, not funded with money from....just IS. We can't stop them from being barbarians, but we can make them POOR barbarians.

There is broad consensus on that opinion within the Muslim world; SA's hypocrisy, treatment of Mecca as a for profit theme park, and greed have done little to earn the love of other Muslims, be they Sunni or Shia.

I never have understood the cuddly relationship that our government has with SA. Most of the 9-11 dogs were from SA if I am not mistaken.
