Finally, Romney got something right. Surprisingly Lee got it wrong.
@ at long last"Utah Girl Chronicles- Seems to me your side of
the political spectrum (the far left, if you don't understand) used to say
that about the Soviet Union and Communism, that they were on 'the right
side of history'. Well, who knows, perhaps you will be right THIS time.I'm thankful anyone enjoys my comments. Your appreciation means a
great deal to me.
Words that I thought would never pass my lips..."I agree with Lee."
I'm getting light headed from that comment.Trump wants to keep
selling arms to the Saudi government because he claims it creates more jobs in
the U.S.It is also rumored that Trump gets loans and other financial
support from the Saudi's.The Saudi's are slaughtering and
starving Yemeni's to death, literally. Trump thinks the
Saudi's are our friends. They never have been and they have been
responsible for numerous attacks on the U.S. Anyone remember 9/11? Stopping Trump is the best thing that we can do for our country, and the rest
of the world. I'll take whatever opposition to Trump is offered.
I think the question has been posed. Do we help Saudi Arabia stem Iranian
activity or do we stand by and let them buy from others? In WW II we worked
with the Soviet Union and they did most of the work in shrinking the German
army. I don't like the Saudi government and I don't like children as
casualties, but shouldn't we try to help the Saudi's fight off Iran?
Just today I think it looks like a couple of tankers were hit by Iran.
at long last. . . : "Seems to me your side of the political spectrum (the

Give me a label too!!!
@Rick for truth"So, do we support and arm Saudi Arabia as a
proxy to fight the Iranian world aggression, or do we just go it alone and fight
Iran by ourselves?"Comments like this frustrate me. It's
not an either/or thing! Why do conservatives try to turn everything into a
"it's black or it's white" argument?Saudi Arabia
can still be a buffer between the west and Iran without selling them more
weapons. And if it came to a war, the U.S. would not be fighting Iran by itself
- there would be a large coalition of countries on our side. We're not
forced to support either Saudi Arabia or Iran...we don't have to support
either one. The fate of the world does not hang on the U.S. supporting one or
The Saudi royal ruling house is an oppressive government. The problem you have
is two fold. One, you cannot use western and American values in judging their
nation. They simply to not work, think, or act in the same way. Two, they are
one of the best, freest governments in the Middle East. They are a buffer
between the rest of the world and Iran. So, do we support and arm Saudi Arabia
as a proxy to fight the Iranian world aggression, or do we just go it alone and
fight Iran by ourselves. Because, it is a matter of when not if that Iran will
force us to act militarily against their world terror.

Credit where it's due. I've been very critical of Mike Lee because
almost everything he does is wrong and embarrassing. But he's doing the
right thing here. The Saudi royal family hacked up a journalist they didn't
like and dissolved his body in a vat of acid - I cringe to think about what they
can do with more serious weaponry.Now, go do the right thing on the
next issue, Mike. Let's make it two in a row!
Saudi Arabia's leader murders those who disagree with him, imprisons others
for whatever reason may cross his mind, orders attacks on civilian neighborhoods
in neighboring countries, orders executions by such things as crucifixion, and
who knows what else goes on in that often secretive country.But
trump insists we sell him advanced weapons systems.Why? To stimulate
our American economy, of course.Gee, what could possibly go wrong
Senator Lee has done so much to support our Leader, Donald Trump, against the
lying and malicious liberal's.Now his Loyalty seems to be
shaky. This is Disappointing.The Trump Train will carry our Nation
to a great Conservative victory. Lee needs to get on board!
Thank you, Sen. Lee!
I’m a strong supporter of Senator Romney, but this sale is bad news. Thank you, Senator Lee for doing the right thing in this case.
Have to agree with Mike Lee on this one. Never thought I'd see the day.Lee apparently is aware of dire implications of Trump arming a nation
that killed a journalist with a bone-cutting saw and the psychopathic Saudi
minds who orchestrated that.Good to see Mike Lee wanting to be on
the right side of history.
