    Send me a copy. I have plenty of associates over in Fayetteville that can break it down in detail. Even if it were in Farsi. My oldest son could do it too. Me? Not so much. Always used indiges for translators to get it right.

    Could probably just get google translate to do it or ask Siri, might be easier.

    Does Google Translate work on WebTV?

    It's weird that it's always the correct 19 dimensional chess move to treat our NATO allies like enemies and brutal dictators like friends.

    I do like how you call him a spy. I can't imagine how far in the bag you have to be for Trump to swallow Saudi propaganda that fully.

    Spare me your fake moral concern. You pick and choose when to have a conscious based on your tribalism. The old guard Saudis lost the civil war & MBS won. That's a good thing, imo. Some of the possible benefits include the opportunity to crack down on Al Queda & Isis, since the old Saudi regime facilitated their existence. We also have the opportunity to use the Saudis to help us keep Iran in check. Trump has talked about the Saudis spending their own money, to create humanitarian zones for the Syrian refugees and an Arab military force that could step in and police the ME, so the US could come home. As an a classical liberal, those things matter to me. The only pausible reason the left is now against working toward peace in the ME, is because Trump is leading the fight.

    As for calling Khashoggi a spy, you win. We'll call him an 'intelligence asset' instead. Can we agree on that description? The Saudis would call him a 'traitor', obviously. He was a Saudi intel asset who'd flipped and was working for the Saudis enemy Qatar. He was being paid and instructed to spread anti-Saudi propaganda in the US media. We've seen the documentation. No one debates that point.
