The United States State Department has just approved a $1.15 billion sale to Saudi Arabia. This is the same awful bureaucratic department run by Hillary Clinton, which left Americans out in the cold in Benghazi and has cost thousands of American lives with aggressive military actions in Libya and Syria.
The sale will include “more than 130 Abrams battle tanks, 20 armed recovery vehicles and other equipment, worth $1.15 billion, to Saudi Arabia.”
Oh! Saudi Arabia also funds extremist teachings in mosques and charities throughout the United States.
Let us not forget that Saudis have also been flooding across the border into Syria.
John Glaser sums its up nicely:
Saudi Arabia’s policy on Syria amounts to funding groups considered by Washington to be terrorists and to lobbying the President of the United States to destroy the Damascus government. The two initiatives are deeply intertwined given that a collapse of the regime in Syria would mean chaos and huge ungoverned spaces, which foreign funded jihadists could thrive in.
So, why exactly is the State Department selling $1.15 billion of military equipment to Saudi Arabia? What is going on here? Why are we giving a crap ton of tanks to a regime that feigns allegiance and is using our might to wage their own wars in the Middle East?
Donald Trump is right on this issue. Take a listen:
This move by our own State Department will probably further destabilize the Middle East and empower terrorists who will stop at nothing to kill and destroy us. It’s time we put America First!
Share if you want to put AMERICA FIRST!
