Experts Blast Trump Plan To Sell Millions in Bombs to Criminal Saudi Regime

Experts on the adverse effects of the military-industrial complex on Wednesday blasted a plan by the Trump administration to sell nearly half a billion dollars worth of advanced U.S. bombs to Saudi Arabia, which for over five years has been leading an airstrike campaign and starvation blockade that have added tens of thousands of civilian deaths to the already staggering toll in Yemen’s ongoing civil war.

Bloomberg reports the US State Department has notified Congress of its intention to license the sale of some 7,500 Raytheon Paveway precision-guided, air-to-ground munitions valued at $478 million to the kingdom, despite its status as one of the world’s worst human rights violators and prolific perpetrator of U.S.-backed war crimes in Yemen.

If the license is approved, Raytheon will have a green light to sell the arms directly to the Saudi regime.
