Trump strikes arms deal with Saudis worth $350bn, $110bn to take effect immediately — RT News

In his first overseas trip as president, Donald Trump sealed an arms deal with Saudi Arabia worth $350 billion over 10 years, with nearly $110 billion to take effect immediately. The agreement is said to bolster security “in the face of Iranian threats.”

This package of defense equipment and services support the long-term security of Saudi Arabia and the Gulf region in the face of Iranian threats, while also bolstering the Kingdom’s ability to contribute to counter terrorism operations across the region,” the White House said in a statement on Saturday, as quoted by CNBC News.

US President Donald Trump, along with US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson who is accompanying him on the trip, will attend the signing of a memorandum of intent on the package, Reuters reports, citing a White House official.

… The arms package includes a Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) missile defense system from Lockheed Martin, …a software system, a package of satellite capabilities, as well as fighting and artillery vehicles are also reportedly part of the negotiations. More than $1 billion worth of munitions, including armor-piercing Penetrator Warheads and Paveway laser-guided bombs made by Raytheon, might also be included in the package.

Of course, there’s no Iranian threat. It was the CIA which deposed Mohammad Mosaddegh for nationalizing the Iranian oil industry decades ago.

Trump is also expecting that the Deep State crowd will shut up for a week, or two, as the deal “supports tens of thousands of new jobs in the US defense industrial base” which really means huge profits for the war manufacturers.

Meanwhile, the bleeding hearts of the EU Parliament is so silent about the ongoing genocide in Yemen.

‘Child dies every 10 min’: UN, Amnesty call to stop Saudi-led assault on ‘crucial lifeline’ in Yemen

25 Apr, 2017 18:26

The UN has appealed for $2.1 billion to prevent the “starving of an entire generation” in Yemen. But it says a lack of funds is not the only issue of concern in the war-torn country, amid reports that the strategic port of Hodeidah may be targeted by the Saudi-led coalition.

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres appealed for the multi-million aid package for Yemen on Tuesday during the opening session of a donor conference in Geneva.

On average, a child under the age of five dies of preventable causes in Yemen every 10 minutes,” Guterres said. “This means 50 children in Yemen will die during today’s conference, and all of those deaths could have been prevented,” he added.

We are witnessing the starving and the crippling of an entire generation,” the UN Secretary-General warned, saying that two-thirds of the population or nearly 19 million people need emergency aid in Yemen.

They include some 3 million malnourished children.

What kind of American or European would support and work in the war industry today?

  1. Was expected… Money talks.

    GM pulling out of S Africa end of the year– tough for SA, but good for USA job market — SA should follow Russia– Set up and grow its own domestic manufacturing … slowly but surely.

    If only the country can end up with a decent, transparent and honest, committed to the people government … then there’s more than hope. Wish somehow Putin and Xi, could behind the scenes advise and maybe throw a challenge to the SA government to reform and unite the population. Have the guts to route out the zio rot infiltrators and independently negotiate with the business sector– plenty good bright minds here, raring to go– so there is plenty room to pick up and go forward to grow and recover from the jugular bleed these greed crazed criminals inflicted on the country and its people.

    1. Yes I agree with you. The whole of Africa is unfortunately under the grip of these western powers still and as long as they are paying off world bank and IMF loans they will forever be entrenched in debt. The people of SA must also learn these things and see through the veils of the west. They just might wake up then. But you are right there are some clever people down there.

      1. Problem is, from what I see of local comments, they remain caught in the western web … consider both Russia and China as the Axis of Evil…

      1. Know reply to you is late in the day… but never too late! What a lovely site– thank you! As it opened I picked up the positive energy– loved the golden sunflowers– harbingers of a bright future for humanity! Then of course I read a wee bit .. all good and then began scrolling down… one great article after the other greeting my eyes– so much to read and enjoy! I must adjust my word press settings to receive replies immediately– do receive my intense debate ones, so don’t know what’s up with normal replies, will check.

        BTW, the pic of BO on the site with his eyes rolled skyward — priceless!! Feel pain for wide awake Americans– how will they ever forget the Obama presidency! Well guess he’s fit for the rogues gallery– every prezzie needs to destroy at least one country on their watch and show a record number of their citizens, dead or maimed– children and women special targets– all futures broken, a grey mist of misery, trampled underfoot y the zio-controlled US jackboot. Sorry, but I just began to explain to someone today, that Zionism is not Judaism …That Joe Biden said so himself: Don’t have to be a Jew to be a Zionist– anyway, then decided– just post links as there are literally multi thousands, if not millions on the net– clearly setting out the reasons why and told by genuine practicing Orthodox Jews– telling it all much better than I could ever hope to do.

  2. NO DOUBT at all, that Trump is a “Creature” of the “Dark forces” and NOT of “The Light”…This proves that he’s looking forward to more Wars, where ever they may come from!
    And to sell weapons to a country responsible in part to WHAT happened on 9/11/2001??? All the BS about him being a “Swamp Drainer” or opposed by “Seemingly” the “Left” is now VERY clear…it’s all just MORE BULL-CHIT!
