Hillary Clinton might struggle with young voters, but she polls well with medieval dictatorships that execute wizards and don't allow women to drive. Unfortunately for Clinton, Riyadh isn't scheduled to hold a Democratic primary (yet). But there's nothing that Debbie Wasserman Schultz can't fix.
We understand that part of the job of Secretary of State involves "diplomacy", that long-forgotten art of talking to people instead of drone-bombing them. And we recognize that being an effective diplomat means building cordial, constructive relationships, even with countries that lob off the heads of Hogwarts graduates.
But when you receive "white gold jewelry with teardrop rubies and diamonds containing a necklace, a bracelet, earrings, and a ring" from the despotic ruler of a 14th century kingdom of sadness, maybe it's time to find a new not-so-secret admirer.
There are many hurtful accusations on the internet which suggest that Hillary Clinton is cold, calculating and generally incapable of normal human feelings. Horrible slander. Back in January, Hillary and her husband said they were "saddened" by the death of King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia, their philanthropic "friend" who donated $10 million to the Clinton Foundation. Later, as Secretary of State, Clinton approved a $29 billion weapons sale to Saudi Arabia ("not a bad Christmas present", according to Hillary's e-mails). And rest assured, The Kingdom has put this high-tech U.S. hardware to good use:
These are the very fighter jets the Saudis have been using to intervene in the internal affairs of Yemen since March 2015. A year later, at least 2,800 Yemeni civilians have been killed, mostly by airstrikes--and there is no end in sight. The indiscriminate Saudi strikes have killed journalists and ambulance drivers. They have hit the Chamber of Commerce, facilities supported by Médecins Sans Frontières (also known as Doctors Without Borders), a wedding hall, and a center for the blind. The attacks have also targeted ancient heritage sites in Yemen. International human rights organizations are saying that the Saudi-led strikes on Yemen may amount to war crimes.
There is now a growing international movement which seeks to place an arms embargo on Saudi Arabia. This would be an unacceptable blow to America's bustling defense industry.
Frankly speaking, Bernie Sanders lacks the foreign policy expertise -- and fancy-pants "nonprofit" Foundation -- to keep the weapons to Riyadh flowing.
Head Choppers 4 Hillary.
