Saudis buys a lot of stuff from Trump.

The US has a long, long history of ignoring Saudi Arabia’s human rights violations.

Saudis buys a lot of stuff from the US.

Saudis own a lot of stuff in the US , real estate, stock, debt etc in the US.

Top Trump fundraisers pushed to sell nuclear tech to Saudis.

Trump chose Saudi Arabia as his first overseas trip as POTUS and brought along an entourage of 100’s. First daughter used her position and influence to extract a $100 million donation to a charity.

So long as Saudis continue to buy and quote/ settle international oil trade in USD, the US is open for business.

I know this ... shia don't have money ... the u.s. has always backed the wrong horse, because it pays better.
adding: Bush Didn’t Know There Were Sunni And Shiite Muslims Two Months Before Invading Iraq...


To be honest, I don't know that too many people know how to keep up.


adding another, just scanned it, this might help:


America and Islam After Bush

Obama did it, so it's OK if Trump does it?

I'm confused. I thought Trump supporters hated what Obama did.

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!


Both CNN and ZeroHedge agree (this is kind of startling, I can't believe that I am citing ZeroHedge, but I'm pretty sure you wouldn't believe CNN) - https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-...n-weapons-endn

As to why? For heaven's sake, is it really a new idea to you that nations will use each other for short-term policy goals even if, in the long-term, they are fundamentally opposed? If the Saudis are so rich, why do they need discounted weapons from us? Answer - they don't. But it saves them money, and helps them maintain their power in the region. And the US is willing to let "re-transfer" slide, because our policy is to keep the Saudis and Israel balanced against each other.

QED.

The US policy in the ME has always been to keep these countries fighting each other. Trump is merely continuing the established tradition.

Trump administration gets green light to sell arms to Saudi Arabia, after Senate rejects veto overrides
https://www.foxnews.com/politics/tru...eto-votes-fail

Three votes Monday to override Trump's vetoes failed. Each required a two-thirds vote.

The White House also argued that stopping the sales would send a signal that the United States didn't stand by its partners and allies, particularly at a time when threats from hostile countries such as Iran have been increasing.

Yes, it always works out so well when we sell arms to countries in the Middle East.
It's not like they ever turn around and use the arms against us.

It's not like any terrorists have ever came from there.
It's not like they might not be given/sold to other terrorist groups in the region and used against us.


We have made a few bucks....why should Trump care if a few poor Americans or Allies die?

Oh wait, he was part of your team, so anything he did was great, but anything Trump does is evil.

Classic example of TDS on display.

Well, we have done this in the past....and it has worked out so well for us!!!!(NOT)
It is a bad and terrible idea, I don't care who has/had it!

What a crock !!!

Iran is cash strapped and in financial ruin due to Trump !!!

S.A. is going to be well armed !!! Iran can't fund an attack therefore less chance of a war !!!
