Trump's Saudi Statement: Missing The Real Message

Members of the #Resistance are trashing President Trump's statement of unwavering friendship with Saudi Arabia despite his own CIA reportedly concluding that the Saudi prince was directly involved in the killing of a dissident journalist. But they are missing the point in demanding that the US "punish" Saudi Arabia. The solution is not to "punish" the Saudis. The solution is to cease providing the the weapons to kill Yemen and to re-assess the US relationship with Iran.

No wonder the wars have continued - without pause - since WWI, the "war to end all wars": the lessons have still not been learned. That much was evident in French President Emmanuel Macron's speech over the weekend, blaming nationalism and populism for the war.

The parallels with our time, where the "unipolar moment" with the US at the apex has begun to fade and with that fade have come endless US threats against rising powers like Russia and China. Isn't there a better way than war? Tune in to today's Liberty Report...
