Canada is quietly nudging allies including Germany and Sweden for help with resolving its row with Saudi Arabia, a government source confirmed Thursday. Ottawa also planned to reach out to regional heavyweight the United Arab Emirates and Britain, which has strong historical ties to Saudi Arabia. Canada has been disappointed that Western powers including the United States -- a key ally of Saudi Arabia -- did not publicly support Ottawa.

"Both sides need to diplomatically resolve this together. We can't do it for them. They need to resolve it together," US State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert told a briefing on Wednesday.

Canada thought we would be like Butch and Sundance...

Not so much.

Every American should be calling, writing, tweeting and demanding support for our ally Canada. Saudi Arabia is a prison country that doesn't respect human rights, we should immediately condemn them, sanction them, threaten them and support our friend and ally Canada! Saudi Arabia is s**t. I'll be quite honest, I prefer Iran over Saudi, they held candlelight vigils on the night of 9-11. Saudi Arabia financed and supported the attacks. They are not our friends, they are clearly our worst enemy in the world.

The Trump maladministration will choose the Saudi PUNK over our Canadian border mate.

Because Trump is a punk just like his pathetic inbred, FAS afflicted followers.

All over a handshake.

MAGA

Saudi tyrants are very sensitive, vicious mean bastards afraid of being overthrown. The Saudi's were unwilling to co-operate in the tracing of funding for the 9-11 hi-jackers, which definitely included Saudi diplomats. Yet we still count them as allies, because they promise to sell oil only in dollars. Trump even supports the Saudi destruction of Yemen, by providing arms and refueling services for the Saudi air force.

But its not about a handshake, oh no, it was the orb that did it for Trump. The international embarrassment and crime spree of the USA continues unabated.

When Donald Trump declared tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum as necessary for national security it was the lowest point of American foreign policy in my lifetime. He insulted our closest ally. One must wonder if he isn't Putin's ventriloquist dummy?

Problem is there are a lot of American's who think the Saudi's are right in what they are doing even if they are "Muslim"...

Saudi Arabia and Israel are our closest allies.

Peair's little boy did it all by himself. They have been our freindly neighbor since 1814. Before then, not so much.

Saudi Arabia's young crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman, has portrayed himself as a reformer, allowing women to drive, opening a movie theater (crazy, right?) and taking other measures to modernize a deeply backward nation. But at the same time he has shown himself to be thin-skinned and bent on consolidating power. He locked up a woman who basically agitated for some of the very measures he has taken, and has gone way off the deep end in his tiff with Canada. It's pretty obvious whose side we should be on in this dispute, but Trump has a personal beef with Canada, so logic doesn't apply.

On top of that, yesterday a US-backed Saudi coalition bombed a bus in Yemen, killing or wounding dozens of kids. The bombing happened in a region held by Iranian-backed Houthis, so the US government shrugs its shoulders.

Canada is winning here. Who would you rather have as allies, Sweden and Germany or Saudi. Why not sanction all dictatorships.

Our Dear Leader says Canada is a SECURITY THREAT! After all they burnt down our White House! Humpy said it so it must be true!

Who are you going to believe? Every American history book ever written or our Dear Leader?

Also, you just know those sneaky Canuck bastages made their fake money look like just our REAL money just so we would get mixed up.

Time for a few missiles and some beautiful chocolate cake!
