WEB Notes: Just days ago Trump shouted down Qatar for supporting terrorism saying, “Stop funding, stop teaching hate, and stop the killing.” Just days before that Trump took credit for Saudi Arabia’s Navel blockade of Qatar. But today, Qatar is rewarded with a $12 billion dollar deal that will send F15 fighter jets their way. This is yet one example of many of the United States supporting terrorism. How blatant and what a slap in the face to the American people. Here are some other very important headlines we have posted concerning this situation:
Qatar will sign a deal to buy as many as 36 F-15 jets from the U.S. as the two countries navigate tensions over President Donald Trump’s backing for a Saudi-led coalition’s move to isolate the country for supporting terrorism.
Qatari Defense Minister Khalid Al-Attiyah and his U.S. counterpart, Jim Mattis, completed the $12 billion agreement on Wednesday in Washington, according to the Pentagon.
The sale “will give Qatar a state of the art capability and increase security cooperation and interoperability between the United States and Qatar,” the Defense Department said in a statement.
Congress last year approved a sale of as many as 72 F-15s in an agreement valued at as much as $21 billion, providing authorization for the deal completed Wednesday. But that was before Qatar’s neighbors, including Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates, severed diplomatic, trade and transport links last week in a move they said was aimed at isolating the country for its support of terrorist groups and Iran.
