Trump Administration Plans $500 Million Arms Sale to Saudi Arabia: Move would give Raytheon licenses to make bombs in Saudi Arabia

The Trump Administration has sent a notification to Congress confirming plans to sell $500 million in weapons to Saudi Arabia in an upcoming round of sales. The plan would include sales of Paveway bombs to the Saudis, and licenses to Raytheon to let them manufacture the bombs directly in Saudi Arabia.

These bombs are part of a 2019 deal in which the Saudis intend to buy 60,000 precision munitions. The deal has continued to face heavy resistance in Congress, in no small part because the Saudis have been committing war crimes with these US-made arms.

Concerns about US culpability in having provided these arms were compounded with the Saudi assassination of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, which fueled a substantial political backlash. So far, the Trump Administration has resisted letting Congress block any sales, but each announcement starts the battle anew.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Apparently, the Saudi approach in Yemen is assassinating all native Yemenites, particularly women, children, and the medically fragile elderly, so they can own the country.

Mr. President, by signing off on this deal, you are telling the world that you proudly are signing off on Saudi war crimes, courtesy of US enabling; what the hell kind of message do you think this is sending to the world?!?

Are you so "sheltered" by your toadying advisors, that you don't know this is precisely what the Saudi military will do with these munitions?!?

Mr. President, you have both a world of hurt to try to help to heal, both societally and economically, to the country you alledge you actually govern; so can you please attempt to do some positive governing to resolve those issues, before you treat your weapons developers/massive contributors to yet another windfall in weapons profits?!?

Or do you really relish the title of"Merchant of Death in Chief"?!?
