I know it is easy to believe the fake news and parrot convenient-sounding falsehoods, but history and facts provide a much better basis of understanding for people willing to invest the time to learn the truth.

Not Saudia Arabia. They are one of our strongest allies in the region. "Countries" don't "officially" sponsor terrorism. Saudi Arabia is not now and has never been known to be one of the state-sponsors of terrorism.

Of course not. But as I stated earlier, we as a nation have every right to look after our national interests, mideast oil being one of them, albeit much less of a factor now than it was 20 years ago. That is also why Saudi is one of our strongest allies. We buy their oil. We buy oil from many ME countries. Securing the oil supply is a matter of global economic well-being, not just the U.S.

Fair enough. But tha's just your opinion - clearly a minority opinion, because we are there and it "is" what it is, however you choose to define it. Characterizing it that way with no backstory support is rather disingenuous.
