In response to Dr Campbell Campbell-Jack: No one is innocent in the Khashoggi murder mystery, Oaknash wrote:
Even forgetting their regional meddling, neither of these countries are great friends to the West. Turkey has weaponised the economic migrants in order to obtain money and political influence. Saudi buys our weapons, sells us oil and finances the building of Salafist and Wahabi dominated mosques which have been such a wellspring of hate and violence throughout Western Europe.
Should we still do business with these unpleasant regimes? No.
Will we do business with them? Of course.
Our dependence on Middle Eastern oil is greater than ever and the more migrants we welcome the more our thirst for oil/energy.
Of course we should walk away from both countries, but yet again our globalist masters (the same people who are robbing us of Brexit and the same people who insist we welcome the world and the same people who have restructured our economy into a spiv economy where hard work and saving count for little) would not want any disruption to ‘International Business’ and therefore will hope this all blows over so we can resume ‘business as usual’.
The murder of this man acts as a metaphor for our relationship with both these states. And like Khashoggi, when doing business with both these countries at the very least we should be counting our fingers afterwards.
