    THE US-SAUDI ARMS DEAL
    THE SAUDI ARMS DEAL SUDDENLY TRIPLED IN SIZE WITH LONG TIME SCHEDULE WITHIN THE AGREEMENT… TRUMP COMPLETED THE SINGLE LARGEST ARMS DEAL IN US-HISTORY, DONE WITH SAUDI ARABIA… IT EXCEEDED THE PREVIOUS COMMITMENT FROM TWO WEEKS AGO, NOW WORTH $350 BILLION… WITNESS US-STYLE ECONOMIC STIMULUS, THE TOXIC WAY… THE USGOVT SUPPORTS THE FADING SAUDI KINGDOM, SUPPORTS THEIR VICIOUS YEMEN WAR, AND APPLAUDS THEIR SUPPORT OF ISIS TERROR… THE USGOVT IS ENCOURAGING THE FORMATION OF A GULF REGION NATO, SURELY DEDICATED TO US-ARMS SUPPLY… CURIOUS THE PAYMENT METHOD TO COME, WITH CONJECTURE.


    The USMilitary-industrial complex has come to the rescue of USEconomy with the massive arms sale to the world’s biggest purchaser of weapons, namely Saudi Arabia. Beyond the glitz and royal pageantry, President Trump’s visit to Saudi Arabia in all likelihood had a main purpose to sell weapons, and to complete a gigantic $350 billion over the next decade. It will have weapon orders filled over time. In turn, the Saudi Royals have promised to invest $billions in the United States as well and to make other commitments designed to placate Trump. The pablum on the official line is that the first phase, with $109.7bn in weapons purchases, will boost Saudi Arabia’s defense capabilities, bolstering their security services in the face of extreme terrorist groups, and the new threats from Iran. The White House added that the deal will create defense jobs while also reaffirming America’s commitment to Saudi Arabia. What a load of rubbish! The Saudis created the Yemen War in order to steal their neighbor’s energy deposits, thus creating a critical situation with consequent certain backfire. The USGovt support of Saudi Arabia goes hand in hand with desperate clinging to the Petro-Dollar. The defacto standard is in its final phase of demise. So the USGovt pledges support to the entire Gulf set of partners, which means the oil monarchies. If the kings and princes do not respond with overt support, they risk being murdered, or having untold terrorism unleashed on their people.
