Saudi Arabia is no ally to the United States. They’re as much as if not more of a regional disrupter as Iran. Their hands are dirty as +++++.

Anyone who doesn't see impropriety here is a +++++ing GOP hack.  

I more concerned about Trumps repeated cynical use of emergency declarations.   Eventually Congress will put in limits as a response to Trump and government response will be limited when a real emergency hits.

I agree, but SA is the best enemy in the region.

The best available. Iran would have been the best but we lost them in the 70’s.

Exactly. In what world is Iran any worse than Saudi Arabia? I guess the world where you have an "Axis of Evil" with three parties that have absolutely no connection to each other. Well, that's a +++++ing stupid world. And I thought the Trumpsters think Trump is great because he's turned his back on Bush-era foreign policies.

No. We had a chance to get them back. The Iranian people are in large measure ambivalent about their leadership and the United States. Even now. At least in my experience.

United States has been in bed with Saudi Arabia through BOTH Democrat and Republican Presidencies.

It's an odd union...  Saudi Arabia is a bad country.  But they have the oil, and they are willing to do deals with us.

So, it's not really a Donald Trump thing.  It's been going on for decades. 

Not sure what the solution is, and if we should should allow China and Russia to have supreme influence in the middle east, while we don't get involved.

Kind of not liking your no good son in law, you put up with him so you can continue to have a relationship with your daughter and grand kids. Just an example, we like our son-in-law.

Saudi Arabia is as contrary to our values as Russia is, if not more so.

In the case of Saudi Arabia:

"the enemy of my enemy is my friend"

 

(at least that's what US Policy seems to be)

Every region and culture of the world has different values. Doesn't mean that you should isolate yourself geopolitically to keep a moral high ground.

It is on target.  They used an emergency declaration to execute the sale and get around Congress.   It’s just another example.
