EU Resolution Calls for Saudi Arms Embargo in 'Appeal to End Bloodshed'

Andrea Germanos, staff writer

The EU parliament on Thursday overwhelmingly called for an arms embargo against Saudi Arabia over its bombing of Yemen which has "led to thousands of deaths and "further destabilized" the war-torn country.

Well that's a start! The US arms industry will be having fits at this attempt to rein-in their profits and the Saudis no doubt will froth at the mouth at their slaughter of Yemeni civilians and Houthis being hindered.

The Houthis would have been better actual allies than the Saudis ever were.

This piece is in stark contrast to another also from today......

Oh shucks, this might put a kink in Sanders plan to get the Saudis "more involved" - they can't do that with slingshots ....

Excellent video of a member of the left in Germany slamming the policies of Merkel, in particular her alliances with Turkey and the Saudi's even as German arms stoke conflict in the region and merkel takes the time to blast Russia for bombing innocent people.
