The US loves its dictators. Will keep them well armed and in power as long as they are in favor of the US.

GOOD!
Let the Suadi's fight for their hills instead of us! We have been the largest supplier of arms in this world forever.

Time to let them kill each other while we make a profit on the weapons of destruction we manufacture.

We'll keep them armed with weapons that work. The alternative is China and Russia junk that barely works.


They will find weapons no matter what! Might as well be weapons that actually perform. Bleeding Edge you might say.

We don't turn anyone away in an emergency room. No reason to change course when its a national emergency on the world stage. We expect the President to use the powers he has when he's elected. Wouldn't be any reason to vote otherwise.

That is Trump's version of an emergency, when congress tells him he can't have his way.

Boy we sure showed Saudi Arabia they cant just cut up journalists, gonna be a long time before they do that again.


Congress blocked the arms deals to the Saudi's because of Yemen but once again Trump has bypassed them. I recall claims that Obama was a dictator for the last 8 years but here you have the real deal.

Part of this national emergency involves sending 1500 troops to somewhere.

Explain to us how arming the Saudi"s so they can bomb and kill the Yemen people is a national emergency?

What kind of national emergency on the world stage did Yemen cause?
