WEB Notes: An obvious escalation. Just last month the US approved $15 billion sale of THAAD missiles to the Saudi’s as well. Even though ol Trump said the Saudi’s were behind 9/11. Back in 2016 the US approved the sale of tanks to the Saudi’s as well, $1.15B worth. Trump also has plans for an “Arab NATO” and do not forget about the “Global Center For Combating Extremist Ideology” that Trump, the Saudi’s and several other middle east nations established to fight “terrorism“.
The sale of UK-made bombs and missiles to Saudi Arabia has leapt by almost 500 percent, according to new data from Campaign Against Arms Trade (CAAT). British munitions have been used in the Saudi-led coalition war in Yemen, contributing to the humanitarian catastrophe there.
Data collated by CAAT shows the UK government had made £4.7 billion from exporting arms and other controlled goods to Saudi since the start of the Yemen war in March 2015, compared to £6 billion worth in the period from January 2008 to April 2015 – a 457 percent increase.
