Title: Saudi Crown Prince says won't pay US for own security (Boy Mohammed)

Donald Trump and Prince Mohammed bin Salman al Saud - Saudi King Abdul Aziz, first monarch and founder of Saudi Arabia and 32nd US President Franklin D. Roosevelt [Twitter]

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman said his country will not pay Washington for its own security, saying his oil-rich kingdom was created even before the US itself.

“Saudi Arabia was there before the United States of America. It’s there since 1744, I believe more than 30 years before the United States of America,” bin Salman told Bloomberg in an exclusive interview late Friday.

Last week, US President Donald Trump said the Saudi King would not last for two weeks in power without US military support.

But bin Salman downplayed Trump’s remarks, saying “you have to accept that any friend will say good things and bad things”.

“So you cannot have 100 per cent friends saying good things about you, even in your family. You will have some misunderstandings. So we put that in that category,” he said.

OPINION: The bankrupt Saudi discourse

The Crown Prince said Riyadh has paid for all weapons bought from the US.

“We will pay nothing for our security. We believe that all the armaments we have from the United States of America are paid for, it’s not free armament,” he said.

“Ever since the relationship started between Saudi Arabia and the United States of America, we’ve bought everything with money.”

He stressed that Saudi-US relations were good, saying “If you look at the picture overall, you have 99 per cent of good things and one bad issue.”

Turning to the four-year conflict in Yemen, bin Salman voiced hope to reach a solution to the crisis in the neighbouring Arab country.

“We hope it will end as soon as possible. We don’t need that on our border,” he said.

“We don’t need to have a new Hezbollah in the Arabian Peninsula. This is a red line not only for Saudi Arabia but for the whole world. No one wants to have Hezbollah in a straight through which about 15 per cent of the world trade goes through. We will continue to pressure them.

“We hope they’ll get ready as soon as possible to have negotiations and to have a deal,” bin Salman said.

In 2015, Saudi Arabia and several Arab allies launched a massive air campaign against Shia Houthi rebels, who have overrun much of Yemen, including capital Sanaa, a year earlier.

The ongoing violence has devastated Yemen’s basic infrastructure, prompting the UN to describe the situation as “one of the worst humanitarian disasters of modern times”.

If you love Yemen so much why don't you move there?

I do not give a rats ass about the ME and if we sell them weapons to kill each other then great.

I have bigger issues to deal with over here in Amerika! Like destroying demoncrats so we can actually move the country to the right instead of being led down the leftist path of destruction.

Its all about priorities! Save the patient then worry about the murder on the other side of the city in the shitty part of town where life is cheap!

The ONLY reason the U.S. needs to be involved in the Middle East is their oil. If we no longer need their oil, it's time to stop supporting any of those countries ... including Israel.

Destroy the leftists in power right now... Libertarians.

Its all about priorities! Save America first.

Your distortion of reality is huge.

Like I said before and many times if you kill the gop before you kill the dims you will move the country to the far left and we will never ever recover.

We have to kill the dims and let the gop be the leftist party while another party takes over the right side.

I would love to get out. The only reason we were there is to stave off the communist blocks from gaining control over the oil and Israel. Israel is more than strong enough to survive on its own and we have plenty of oil here at home.

If we left the ME I would be happy. Im not sure if totally leaving is even possible. If we leave moslems will do what they have always done. Conquer those around them. They are a virus.

Let them. Then we nuke the winner.
