America's conundrum in needing to give Saudi Arabia the benefit of the doubt isn't about Saudi's money, but the fate of the U.S. dollar

There is an interesting thing about criminal investigations that are considered 'too perfect', where even the investigators start to question whether the event was staged, or that their prime suspect was potentially framed by the real culprits.

We mention this conundrum because this is exactly what is taking place right now in regards to the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, and the 'evidence' surrounding it which curiously was handed to the media on a silver platter almost minutes after it took place.

But this article is not about the investigation, conspiracy, or who was behind Khashoggi's death.  Instead it is about the responses being made by the Trump administration and why the President is patiently giving the Saudi government as much benefit of the doubt as possible before reacting.

It has been more than a generation since the United States monetary system discarded the long-standing Gold Standard and embarked on a fiat currency system by which they tied the dollar and reserve currency to oil.  And to facilitate this 'Petrodollar' system, they needed the partnership of the leading authority over OPEC, which of course was the Saudi royal family.

This bargain between thieves has lasted now for 44 years, and has been the primary foundation behind America's empirical power, and the vast wealth accumulation by the House of Saud.  And because of this, not even Saudi citizen involvement in 9/11 could break that bond because it would mean the financial collapse of the United States.

President Trump knows this, and realizes that to stand with the rest of the globalist world in vilifying, castigating, and even sanctioning Saudi Arabia without absolute proof would mean that he is accepting the fact that the world economy could be plunged into chaos by his hand because the probable reaction by the Saudi government would be to instantly disband the Petrodollar, and to cause oil prices to spike up to levels that would crush a majority of nations.

In the end there is too much at stake for the United States to simply respond with reactionary outrage in order to appease opposition forces that already hate President Trump, his policies, and what he is trying to do by dismantling the globalist built system.  And like any good leader, there will be time enough to dole out the proper punishment when the evidence finally avails itself, especially since this event was done not to the United States itself, but most probably by rogue Saudi officials on one of their own citizens.
