Yo Ho Ho and a Bottle of Saudi Rum ...
Another man buried in a sea of innuendo.
15 Men on a Dead Man's Chest ...
And we heaved ’em over and out of sight–
With a yo-heave-ho!
And a fare-you-well!
And a sullen plunge
In the sullen swell
Ten fathoms deep on the road to hell --
Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rum!
Sounds like booze talk to me, all this constant story building around the absconded Khashoggi. Even the myth of Saudi abstinence is less a myth than an outright fabrication:
DailyMail: The real Arabian nights: Extraordinary picture shows drunk, burka-clad woman passed out in a Saudi street as ex-pats lift lid on secret debauchery
If you can believe anything the mainstream goes on about!
Could Khashoggi credibly have openly gone back home after all he said about life there? After all the myths he wrote for the WashPost? No, I suspect he'd have to disappear into some version of a Saudi Witness Protection Program.
Not to be unsympathetic, but Khashoggi's fiance qualifies as "derelict" (tossed overboard), unless she was a willing foil to what appears to be a series of clumsy works of fiction.
Recordings of Khashoggi's death? What ... like "Oof", "Pow", "Hit him again", "Die like a rat" "Cut off his fingers" - stuff like in a Hollywood soundtrack? Hardly qualifies as proof.
Hinting that the Saudis are "going to" own up to his murder? Even if they said it, and pinned it on some insignificant lowlife, would it make him actually dead?
In contrast, does continual talk of MBS's emerging dark side make it true that he's alive and behind all of this intrigue?
CBC: The Khashoggi execution should forever extinguish the myth of this 'progressive' Saudi prince
Might it not be that he was a bit too progressive and had to be, shall we say, curtailed?
Lord knows what the Turks are up to, aiding and abetting an increasingly gruesome scenario:
(Actually, I think Erdogan might well consider it in his own best interests to follow whatever lead he's being given these days, in view of predicted long-term consequences to Turkey's political position in the ME.)
15 men on a dead man's chest ... They're going to have to kill all 15 men if they want to protect the secret -- as happened to the 9/11 hijackers.
How can anyone believe the corporate media after a series of reports like this:
It seems they're taking us all for the fools that a lot of us truly seem to be! At the root of all this nonsense is, as always, Fool's Gold. Greedy folks are, in the long run, fools, devoid of humanity, a menace to themselves and others; always lurking behind any international intrigue. The US, Israel and Saudi Arabia (and Canada, of course) are just as tight as ever they were, play-fighting while secretly protecting one another's ass-ets (and secrets), and while children are being slaughtered everywhere the profiteers set foot.
See PennyforyourThoughts for full analysis of the Khashoggi myth. As a commenter reminded, there were 15 Saudi hijackers on 9/ll.
