The fact that people think that is a good thing, does show those who are the real sufferers from TDS.

15 of the 19 terrorists were citizens of Saudi Arabia, at the direction of a member of the Saudi royal family, with the financial support of numerous Saudis, attacked the U.S.

Aside from the the Civil War, worst attack on the U.S.A. in history.

Why we are selling them weapons?

So that 5-10 years from now they can use then against our allies. See Iran circa 1970s.

How gullible are you? They murdered Khashoggi in cold blood, and how did we "punish" them?

"Saudi Arabia and its coalition partners have transferred American-made weapons to al Qaeda-linked fighters, hardline Salafi militias, and other factions waging war in Yemen, in violation of their agreements with the United States, a CNN investigation has found.

The weapons have also made their way into the hands of Iranian-backed rebels battling the coalition for control of the country, exposing some of America's sensitive military technology to Tehran and potentially endangering the lives of US troops in other conflict zones."

If a bunch of folks came over to my place, burnt down buildings, and murdered some of my family, I'd go over them tooth and toenail, not attack some neighbors who had nothing to do with it and then give the murdering bunch more matches and guns.

Because the American people are confused in what constitutes a really ally as they watch it go down, unalarmed by what just happened.

Failure, Frustration and Fear

Defeat Is Not An Option

"The Saudis will carry on with efforts to defeat the Shia rebels despite UN pressure to make a peace deal the Shia rebels would currently accept. Such a deal would restore the Shia autonomy in the north and make it possible for Iran to continue supplying the Shia tribes with weapons that can be used to attack Saudi Arabia. To the Saudis that is unacceptable, given the fact that the Iranians are openly calling for the overthrow of the Saudi government, and Iran taking over as the “protector of the two Most Holy Islamic cities of Mecca and Medina”. Most Moslems do not want Iran in charge of Mecca and Medina. The Iranians are Shia Moslems and Shia comprise only about ten percent of all Moslems. The Saudis are largely Sunni, a version of Islam about 80 percent of Moslems belong to. Moreover, the Iranians are not Arabs. Rather the Iranians are Indo-European and for many Moslems that is a big deal because Islam was founded by Arabs and the Moslem scriptures (the Koran) are written in Arabic. The Saudis will go to great lengths to prevent the Shia provinces in northwest Yemen from becoming an Iran base area. Meanwhile the Iranians have convinced many of the Shia Yemenis that getting their autonomy back should be non-negotiable because without that autonomy the Yemeni Shia will be vulnerable to retaliation from all the other Yemeni groups the Shia rebels have harmed during the four years of civil war."
_______________


Sunni were responsible for 9/11; it's enough to blow one's hair back ...

Radical Islam in America

"But almost immediately a very interesting fact emerged: of the 19 suicide terrorists on September 11, 15 were subjects of the kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Why is this important? It is important because these were not poor people from refugee camps on the West Bank or in Gaza. These were not people who had grown up feeling some grievance against Israel and the United States because they lived in difficult conditions. These were not people from the crowded and disrupted communities of Egypt or Pakistan, or people who had experienced anti-Islamic violence in the last 20 years and had therefore turned against the United States. These people had grown up in the country that Americans often think of as our most solid and dependable ally in the Arab world—the kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Thus the question arose: Why would Saudis be involved in this?"


Rinse and repeat ...

Ask Obama .....

Barack Obama’s administration has offered Saudi Arabia more than $115 billion in weapons, other military equipment and training, the most of any U.S. administration in the 71-year U.S.-Saudi alliance, a report seen by Reuters has found.

Give me ONE EXAMPLE when that has happened. You can't, because we've never allowed Saudi Arabia to re-sell our military technology. NEVER. Stop lying again.

Why would Saudi do that? The people that run that country are already RICH. Why burn bridges with the U.S. over a few bucks. THINK!
