The US/Israel/Saudi vs Iran/Shia thing has been fighting proxy wars for years. I'm not sure how this really shifts things besides unnecessarily pissing of the arab community.

because the arab community always has a rational, even handed way of disagreeing with the beliefs and actions of other countries... Especially the US, yeah?

So this new Flynn info was known by the Mueller team for months, and they asked Cummings to wait until today to share it.

It's not hard at all to imagine why this might have been necessary for the investigation, but Republicans are going to throw such a disingenuous whining fit about hiding things from the congressional investigations.

Trump issues demand that the saudis lift the yemen blockade.

So this makes Iran more likely to hit Israel? Or suddenly the Saudis and Iran will be bros? Not sure what you are going for here.

It's weird that we live in a world where a minor political disruption effort blew up everything everywhere, and that it mostly happened because Donald Trump is an egomaniac with dementia and so is America.

Yes. DT is America. A truth the left and the right are failing to admit to the necessary degree. We are wholly sick.

The U.S. is incapable of severing ties with Saudi Arabia ($$$$) despite all the evidence that it fuels Wahhabism and ISIS, so Trump did the next best/worst thing and doubled down on our relationship.

It'll probably go something like this... Iran loses its shit and strikes Israel. Saudis swoop in and get to come across as "the good guys."

Saudis get to
a. crush those Shia heathens
b. see a weakened Israel
c. continue to fund terrorism

For all we know this was to avert Israel starting a war with Lebanon, which seemed pretty imminent over the last two weeks.
