Invulnerability of Saudis and Trump's firmness. Georgy Bovt's comment


Trump continues to oppose a rupture of defense contracts with Riyadh, despite possible murder of the journalist Khashoggi Georgi Bovt. Photo: Mikhail Fomichev/TASS In the U. S. Congress is demanded that Donald Trump took the most drastic measures if it becomes clear that the journalist Gamal Khashoggi was killed by request of Riyadh. The U.S. President tries not to escalate a situation, saying that Saudi Arabia should be considered innocent until her guilt is not proved. Moreover, Trump is sure: if Washington refuses to sell to the authorities of Saudi Arabia large consignment of arms as it is offered by many in America, Riyadh will buy it from Russia, China or France. Meanwhile heads of the world companies and the managing director of the International Monetary Fund Christine Lagarde refuse to go to Saudi Arabia where the large international conference which call precisely "Davos in the desert" will soon take place. In more detail — in Georgy Bovt's comment. Judging by the available information, Gamal Khashoggi not only was killed, but then the body or was dismembered and taken out in parts from consulate, or dissolved in acid. 22 senators of the USA signed the appeal to the president with the requirement to apply in this case "The world act of Magnitsky of responsibility for violation of human rights" which belongs not only to Russia, but also to all countries where, according to the USA, human rights are violated. One of earlier most famous lobbyists of interests of Saudi Arabia in the Senate Lindsay Graham, South Carolina republican, burned so that in general urged the crown prince Muhammad bin Salman who is actually operating the country to retire, having threatened with "infernal sanctions" if he is confirmed that the Saudi authorities are involved in murder of the oppositional journalist. At the same time neither Washington, nor Riyadh want incitement of scandal. Therefore the Secretary of State Pompeo was also urgently sent to the kingdom to find means of egress from a delicate situation. And already, according to CNN TV company, the Saudi authorities are ready to make the statement that Gamal Khashoggi was really interrogated in consulate of the kingdom in Istanbul, however he in the course of interrogation unintentionally died. So everything can be written off for "an excess of performers". For persuasiveness, perhaps, guilty persons will even be punished. It will turn out almost like in an old Soviet joke: like, "I am not guilty, the victim himself accidentally ran on a knife, and so 38 times". On all formal signs this murder falls under criteria of "Magnitsky Act". However there are no doubts that this law will not be applied by the USA to the important Middle Eastern partner which Saudi Arabia is. As well as it befits in similar cases, to the countries intending to keep the normal relations, all will rumple unofficially. It to you not poisoning of Skripal in Salisbury which was inflated by the British authorities as nearly crime against humanity. Though, most likely, is not what other as games of intelligence agencies of the different countries against each other. Also wound
