Trump Administration To Supply Saudis, Kuwait With $1.85 Billion In Arms

By Brandon Turbeville

While candidate Trump was rather harsh on the terrorist-financing Neanderthal government of Saudi Arabia, President Trump doesn’t seem as if he is going to be as tough. This is because, on Monday, January 23, the U.S. State Department announced the first arm sales of the Trump administration. In this announcement, it was revealed that $1.85 billion worth of material will be sold to both Saudi Arabia and Kuwait.

Approval of the arms deal must be approved by Congress before actually taking place.

As the Washington Post writes,

The sales, once finalized, will send $525 million in observation balloons to Saudi Arabia; $400 million in helicopter gunship parts and air-to-air missiles to Kuwait; and $400 million in maintenance support for Britain’s fleet of C-17 cargo jets. On Thursday, the day before Trump’s inauguration, the State Department notified Congress it was prepared to sell Kenya $418 million in propeller-driven close air support aircraft and their accompanying weapons but only publicly announced the deal Monday. The awkward-looking aircraft, known as the Air Tractor 802L, will likely be used by Kenyan forces to hunt the terrorist group al-Shabab.

This is despite the fact that the Saudis are launching a horrific war against Houthi rebels in Yemen where the Saudi aerial bombing campaign has killed a staggering number of civilians and has essentially destroyed most of the country. The Saudis have virtually reduced Yemen back to the Stone Age and created one of the worst humanitarian catastrophes in the world, even rivaling the crisis in Syria, which the Saudis have also been instrumental in creating.

To be clear, it appears this arms sale is a holdover from an agreement under the Obama administration which itself allowed for $40 billion in weapons transfers to take place. Still, it is worth noting that, while Trump routinely and rightly called out Saudi Arabia for supporting terrorism and generally acting as a leech on the money and military of the United States, President Trump appears to be continuing to supply the sustenance the feudal monarchy needs to survive.

We anxiously await the justifications provided for such a glaring contradiction in rhetoric versus actual policy from the Trump administration.

  1. A holdover? The Saudis have long been obedient global elite minions and this goes well beyond the US. It’s the International Bankers and their UN Agendas which Saudi Arabian Prince Mohammed bin Salman is at the helm of implementing at lightening speed calling it Vision 2030, along with the rest of the Gulf Regional Government (GCC) which is quickly becoming a mirror image of the EU.

    When the Houthis forced out Yemen’s Globalist lackey President, Saudi Arabia was tasked with bringing Yemen back into line as Yemen was already on the path to integrating into the GCC. …It’s more complex than this article would have us believe and the problem is we aren’t being told how late the hour is for the roll out of the New World Government Economic Order is (totalitarian, Orwellian). Iran is all over the new paradigm too, long term plans include Iran and Egypt as part of the the GCC, which, like the EU is to have its own military, currency, parliament, with several major cities already designated UN Smart Cities.

    • VISION 2030 being another moniker obfuscating of the ubiquitous ‘AGENDA 2030’ being crammed down the throats of the 99% by the globalist technocrats…ie: NWO

      • Exactly….a totalitarian techno asteroid fragmenting, striking regions around the globe with Elite Technocracy mouthpiece Parag Khanna riding the Borg asteroid like Slim Pickens in Dr. Strangelove, all the while spewing slithering seductive specious sophistry.

    • funny how ‘Jewish-looking’ these two are? lol

  2. Well, he stopped the transfer of $221M to the Palestinian Authority. It’s a safe bet he could have stopped this as well …. or at least held it up for reconsideration.

  3. Aah, but these are American jobs for American workers….it doesn’t matter what happens after shipping…except, of course, when the consequences rebound on America and it’s then called terrorism. Still, looking on the bright side, American arms dealers can sell shed loads of weaponry to American security forces. Which is a win/win situation, am I right?
    Nightmare on Pennsylvania Avenue.
