With Saudi Prince on Whitewash Tour, Critics Warn Against Further US Complicity With 'War Crimes' in Yemen

Jessica Corbett, staff writer

As Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, often called MbS, visits the United States this week to meet with President Donald Trump and reaffirm U.S. support for his nation's bombing of Yemen, human rights advocates are raising alarms about the "public-relations tour" and yet another round of U.S. weapons sales to Saudi Arabia.

“If the president remains on a disastrous course, Congress needs to step in.”

I was in need of comedic relief today, and there it is. It is more likely that Congress will act with alacrity so that not one more puppy dies in an overhead bin, but they will do nothing to help stop the killing of men, women, and children in Yemen.

“The critics warn…” The “critics” overlook or ignore the envy-factor in djt. The death penalty for drug dealers?, envy factor. What will come out of this meeting? What new cruelty will come our way?

Gotta love it when the “critics” warn against further US complicity and war crimes. The entire US foreign policy is a war crime and has been for decades now. And the “critics” are worried about “further” war crimes. It just goes to show how insane things now are that the “critics” can even bother to say such a thing with a straight face.

That is the only thing that is important in this Saudi, whitewash tour. Nothing else matters; nothing else is relevant. Everything else is just a facade to enable the war profiteers more war crimes and more war profits!

Death toll in Yemen so far 10.000, 40.000 wounded, 10 million people in need of humanitarian assistance. The US MIC and their henchmen are war criminals and should stand trial in The Hague…

Military industries are number one. Death is still one of the most lucrative of conservative’s Wall Street Casino “investments”. It increases their “earnings” and decreases all the scary, dark skinned, commie, and non-judeochristian populations in the world.


#8

There they are — maniacal killers, slaughterers of children, walking proudly and bravely.

I am against the death penalty but MBS and those who enable him (Trump) qualify, if anyone does, for it based on their war crimes in Yemen.

Trumpster’s Big Win: a man who would sell PCP infused cotton candy to children at the 4th of July Parade, sells bombs to a murdering prick who’d gladly pay for the candy spinning machine.
And, no mention of the $400 Billion investment in the U.S. promised by Mbs, from the newly christened S.A. Sovereign Fund? Come on, try to keep up with the legal skim, please. Those PR firms know that kind of money gets laundered all over the country, like the DoD budget, sort of. :wink:
Norah O’Donnell sold out so long ago she can’t remember the exact selling price, anymore. WTF-Ssshhheeessshh! 60 Minutes is mostly junk.

The US has always had their head shoved up the Saudi ass. Add Israel and you have the true axis of evil that the brain dead shrub retard spoke of.

…as Twitler whispers in Salman’s ear, “You can fondle my money spigot if I can fondle your oil spigot.” It’s a bromance only Hieronymous Bosch could love.

Two peas in a war criminal pod. Is there no entity that can hold them responsible for their continual war crimes against humanity?!
God, Allah, where are you as these bastards use your names for slaughtering innocents in the name of righteousness?! You must be so proud of the stream of bloody/dead babies, children, moms, dads, sisters, brothers, aunts, uncles, cousins, and grandparents your worshipers blow to bits in your holy names.
