(PatrioticPost.com)- On Thursday, Jesse Watters summarized the United States’ stance toward Saudi Arabia concisely. He told viewers that tolerance of the Saudi regime’s activities is the price to pay for reduced prices for oil and gas.
On Monday’s episode of “The Five,” the hosts discussed President Joe Biden’s forthcoming trip to Saudi Arabia. As a candidate for president, Joe Biden took a tough stance against the Saudis and criticized the crown prince of Saudi Arabia for ordering the killing of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi. Amid the country’s continuing war against Yemen, which is a proxy conflict with the country’s regional adversary Iran, he also promised to halt sanctioning the supply of armaments to the country.
However, since becoming office, Biden has been forced to adopt a more moderate strategy. As a significant oil producer and a participant in OPEC, Saudi Arabia is in a position to influence the direction of global oil prices, either by helping to push them down or higher. It is speculated that President Biden’s trip to the nation was to persuade the Saudis to raise their production levels.
Watters spoke about the killing of Khashoggi and stated that the previous administration’s leader, Donald Trump, “was clever about it.”
Watters said that Trump thought it was not worth ruining American energy strategy over one homicide.
Geraldo Rivera mentioned that 15 of the 19 hijackers on 9/11 were Saudi nationals.
Watters said, “Geraldo, this is the same bargain we’ve made since 1945.”
He acknowledged that they were engaged in 9/11 but asked Geraldo, “Do you want $10 oil or not?”
Watters said the only alternative is to delink the oil price in the United States from the price of oil in the rest of the globe. In this manner, we can have inexpensive oil in the United States. If you do that, you’ll have to learn how to play the Saudi game.
Greg Gutfeld later in the broadcast argued that there is no clear proof tying the Saudi government to the atrocities that occurred on September 11.
An FBI assessment made public in the previous year indicated that the ties previously disclosed between the hijackers and Saudi authorities were exaggerated.
