“Having our country act as Saudi Arabia’s bitch is not ‘America First’.”
Ed.’s note: Yes, Tulsi Gabbard, we know all about Saudi Arabia but what about America acting as Israel’s bitch as well? One begins to consider just how many countries there are America can be a bitch for? So let’s see, America so far is a bitch for Britain, Israel and now Saudi Arabia. The Houthis in Yemen took out a major oil refining facility in Saudi Arabia and the US-supplied multi-billion dollar missile systems were ineffective against the drones deployed against the Aramco refinery (stabilization facility). Wouldn’t that sort of qualify as Saudi Arabia being America’s oil bitch? Weapons for oil bitch.

Tulsi Gabbard Slams Trump: Being “Saudi Arabia’s Bitch is Not America First”
“Trump awaits instructions from his Saudi masters,” Gabbard said on Sunday. “Having our country act as Saudi Arabia’s bitch is not ‘America First’.”

U.S. President Donald Trump is likewise posting threats of a military response on Twitter, saying we are “locked and loaded.“
“Saudi Arabia oil supply was attacked,” Trump on Sunday.
“There is reason to believe that we know the culprit, are locked and loaded depending on verification, but are waiting to hear from the Kingdom as to who they believe was the cause of this attack, and under what terms we would proceed!“
Saudi Arabia oil supply was attacked. There is reason to believe that we know the culprit, are locked and loaded depending on verification, but are waiting to hear from the Kingdom as to who they believe was the cause of this attack, and under what terms we would proceed!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 15, 2019
Trump, however, stops short of placing the blame on Iran in his latest round of tweets on the subject, instead saying that he is “waiting to hear” from Saudi Arabia.
Despite the fact that the U.S. provides Saudi oil terminals with U.S.-made Hawk surface-to-air missiles, spends at least $81 billion a year protecting oil supplies around the world, and recently deployed 500 troops to the Kingdom, the president alludes to the fact that the United States—the world’s leading military superpower—doesn’t have it’s own intelligence about what happened at the world’s largest oil processing facility.
At least two Democratic presidential contenders are not going to let the president’s reliance on Saudi Arabia for information about the attack slide.
In a tweet directly quoting Trump, Representative Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) slammed the U.S. president for his latest instance of failing to put “America First.“
“Trump awaits instructions from his Saudi masters,” Gabbard tweeted on Sunday.
“Having our country act as Saudi Arabia’s bitch is not ‘America First’.“
In a video released on Twitter, Gabbard declared:
“Yesterday President Trump offered to place our military, my brothers and sisters in uniform, under the command [sic] of Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the dictator of the Islamist Kingdom of Saudi Arabia [sic]. Trump said, “[We] are locked and loaded, but are waiting to hear from the Kingdom as to who they believe was the cause of this attack, and under what terms we would proceed!” Mr. President, as you know, I have never engaged in hateful rhetoric against you [sic], or your family, and I never will, but your offering our military assets to the dictator of Saudi Arabia to use as he sees fit, is a betrayal of my brothers and sisters in uniform who are ready to give our lives for our country, not for the Islamist dictator of Saudi Arabia. For you to think that you can pimp out our proud servicemen and women to the Prince of Saudi Arabia is disgraceful, and it once again shows that you are unfit to serve as our commander in chief. As a member of Congress, and as a soldier, I and all of my brothers and sisters in uniform have taken an oath to protect and defend the American people and the Constitution of the United States of America. There is nothing in our Constitution that gives you the power to go to war without the express consent of Congress [sic], but to speak of giving you the power to offer our military to a foreign power like the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to use as they wish — President Trump, your words and actions are a betrayal of my brothers and sisters in uniform, the American people, and our Constitution. My fellow servicemembers and I — we are not your prostitutes. You are not our pimp.“
.@realDonaldTrump Despicable. Offering to place our military assets under the command of a foreign country—Saudi Arabia—is a disgrace and betrayal of my patriotic brothers and sisters in uniform and to our Constitution. We are not your prostitutes. You are not our pimp. pic.twitter.com/Cu1OewEMOC— Tulsi Gabbard (@TulsiGabbard) September 16, 2019
