Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS) has summoned a meeting on his super yacht, Serene, with his security advisors Dabae Aldhiyb and Jihaz Thaelab, both trained at Erik Prince’s Academi, the security company formerly called Blackwater USA… who is brother of U.S. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos.
The crown prince informs them that the foreign ministry has issued a statement rejecting both U.S. Senate resolutions as “interference in our internal affairs.” The first one called to end American military support for the kingdom in the Yemen war, and another held him responsible for the murder of Jamal Khashoggi.
He adds, “Dabae and Jihaz, you know this tin man [Canadian prime minister Justin] Trudeau has said that he is looking to cancel its $13 billion arms deal with us, because for him Jamal’s removal is “unacceptable.” He can have fun with his unsold armored vehicles.
“In September, when his foreign minister tweeted against us, we expelled his ambassador… we had also declared to recall our medical students from the country but I have held back so they can complete their education.
“How else can I punish him for poking his nose into our affairs? All he has is maple syrup and we don’t use that. And even if need any, we can buy that too from America.
“I don’t care about the Danish, German, Dutch and Finnish governments imposing arms embargoes against us over the dead Yemeni civilians. The British government has resisted joining them because we have purchased £4.7 billion worth of their arms to since 2015. They’ve never have had a conscience and surely they will not brook any of such nonsense because they need to sell to us.
“The real thing is that our Abu Ivanka [President Trump] is with us. The Canadian unit of this American company, General Dynamics, makes these vehicles that Justin does not want to supply to us. I will ask [Gen.] Fayyadh [Al Ruwaili, chairman of General Staff] if we really need them. I was simply trying to help General Dynamics. Our, Abu Ivanka loves it when you do something nice for an American company.”
Aldhiyb offers, “Your Royal Highness, indeed you are doing all the right things, but I am a trifle worried that [senator] Lindsey Graham is calling you complicit in Jamal’s case. And, Your Royal Highness, this is a Republican senator. Not just that but also when Democrats have a minority in the Senate, some Republicans defied Abu Ivanka to pass the measure with Democrats by 56-41.”
The prince informs him, “Dabae, don’t worry. I have talked to my brother Jared [Kusher, Trump’s son-in-law], he has assured me that Abu Ivanka would have vetoed the measures, but in any case, the House of Representatives blocked a vote on the matter. Yes, in January, we may face some turbulence when the House gets a Democratic majority.
“Once again, Dabae, don’t worry, our consultants McKinsey are working to get endorsements from Ripp Effluenstein, president of Weapons Manufacturers of America United (WMAU), Zevel Shu’al, director of the Institute for the Enforcement of Zionist Values and Sh’tut Nahash, chairman of the Fund for Zionist Exceptionalism. You know Zevel and Sh’tut are important because they know what is good for Israel is good for America.
“I am sure the lobbyists working under our consultant, McKinsey’s direction will make the senators and Congress members see what Abu Ivanka sees that their bill on Yemen will undercut American support for the Saudi-led coalition against Iranian-backed Houthis. Plus, I have asked Jared to make sure that White House officials emphasize that American economic ties to the kingdom are vital for their country.
“God bless, our position is very strong. Abu Ivanka is pushing to sell us civilian nuclear technology and telling his people that our market is too important to ignore, especially you know when their nuclear power industry is in decline. [He guffaws] Do we really need this nuclear thing! We can’t wind up our own watches, what will we do with this technology. Of course, I will not mention it to Abu Ivanka. We have to keep buying his things, and of course, we will get Americans to run all their toys.
“Dabae and Jihaz, we are as safe with America as we are with Britain. These Jamal and Yemen things are off the table… gone.
“Jared told me how their Energy Secretary Rick Perry brushed aside congressional appeals that nuclear talks be suspended because of Jamal, and highlighted the role American companies could play in helping us establish a nuclear energy program.
“You know it is all for their public consumption, all this talk about them having the leverage to persuade us to limit our program to peaceful purposes — leverage they say the U.S. would forfeit if we turned to other suppliers.
“Imagine, we, the House of Salman ever doing anything on our own! They are making the machines and they will run them.”
Thaelab addresses the prince, “Your Royal Highness, indeed you and Mr. Jared are blood brothers, but I tell you that [independent Senator Bernie] Sanders, who co-sponsored the measures against us, will try once Democrats formally take over control of the House in January. I think that we should dig dirt on Mr. Bernie.
“We should start now and deliver a lasting blow. We should hit him with weakening the rule that what is good for Israel is good for America.”
