As the relationship between the United States and Saudi Arabia comes under renewed scrutiny in the wake of the Gulf nation's weekend bombing campaign in Yemen, a Reuters exclusive published Monday reveals that the Obama administration approved a $1.3 billion arms sale to Saudi Arabia last year despite warnings that it could implicate the U.S. in war crimes.
Of course it's a war crime! So was the Vietnam War. So was the Iraq War. So was torturing war prisoners. When did its being a war crime ever stop the US from advancing the empire? The dirty little secret that Hillary didn't talk about last night is that in return for arming the Saudi's with F-15s to carry out their attacks on Yemen, they turned around and made a nice donation to the Clinton Foundation. “Not a bad Christmas present”, remarked one top official. Merry F'ing Christmas to the Yemeni victims too.
When Obama entered office with Hillary at his side, the United States was involved militarily in two wars---Iraq and Afghanistan.
We are now involved militarily in five wars---Syria, Libya, Yemen, Iraq and Afghanistan.
Hillary supports all of those wars and was instrumental in starting the wars in Syria and Libya.
The foreign policy of both Obama and Hillary has been an atrocity.
"Whether they were capable..."???
The question really should be, "We're they willing?"
The answer is an obvious NO. War criminals. Guilty. Just like the Nazis. Only now it's the Houthis.
