Again an article built around what TRUMP might do when the United States of America has been selling arms to these same regimes all along. Do people STILL believe that when selling arms to the Government of the Honduras as example, they were unaware that said Government was killing Civilians?
If this outrage had been expressed a long time ago and had the electorate voted for candidates who would have worked towards ending this the Yemen situation might never have got to this.
This is not a US only problem. The Government of Canada has been selling arms to thes same regimes , as has France and the UK. This had little to do with Loopholes in the law and who the respective Prime Minister or President was at the time and had everything to do with Governments of all nations putting the profits of Corporations above anything else. As far as “Profits” are concerned if there no existing loopholes that make the selling of arms to these regimes impossible, they will work on finding them or creating them.
At the end of the day it not the words on paper that are selling these arms and allowing it. It is the PEOPLE who are elected to office and the Corporations that lobby them.
