Seriously, what difference does it make? When Muhamad bin Nayaf was still crown prince in 2016 there where more than 160 public executions in one year. That is about one every second day. Compared to those scales the internal power struggles seem minor, and the public outrage over Kashoggi in the US and Europa a bit superficial.

Just my opinion, but I think Khashoggi is a bigger deal because he was a member of the dissident press, and we have good reason to believe that MBS personally approved his murder as a warning to others who may dare to criticize him or his regime. In the US, this is resonating because here people in power are attempting to strong arm the free press (revoking press passes to the White House, encouraging violence towards members of the press for example) if they dare criticize. It’s a hot button issue right now.

To me, we get dumped on at work, at home, by various family members, and by people and we don't need to be dumped on by the media.  They should just stick to the facts and try not to come off as preening, condescending reporters.  They know nothing of the reality of real people face.  It's gotten 10 times worse in the past 10 years, I may suggest something flipped with the media during the Bush years.  Rather than wishing these journalists ill, I decided I'll just send my aunt and uncle to each of those reporters.  Sure, my aunt and uncle may bankrupt and abuse the journalist they live with, but seeing these journalists KNOW everything they can spend the time, energy, and frustration in trying to (and failing to) help my aunt and my uncle, since you know they're the experts in everything.   Whistle

Astrid, what difference is there? Kashoggi was a US resident and reporter for the Washington Post who was murdered inside his own embassy. That is beyond the bounds of acceptable in three different ways. Plus add that it was at the direct order of the Crown Prince. This is something that has never been experienced by the US government.

Exactly DoV.  Star

And now it’s worse because our leadership has publicly encouraged and condoned violence against the press.

Well, Putin is one of the very few willing to stand alongside MBS, much less shake his hand.

The Khashoggi murder is now part of his history and legacy. Good.

Reporters who write things Putin doesn’t like come to an ignominious end as well. They are both delighting in their power to strike fear into reporters. And drumph wishes to be just like them and in that club.

The President of Mauritania is making a face as if MBS has a gun pointed at him under the table Secret What choice does Mauritania have but to 'agree' with SA? The only leaders who are comfortable around MBS are other psycopaths imo.
