Biden Freezes Arms Sales To Saudis & UAE, Including Large F-35 Jet Transfer
[link to www.zerohedge.com (secure)]


On Wednesday the Biden administration issued a freeze of all US arms sales to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates at a moment Congressional scrutiny of America's support to the Saudi-led coalition waging war in Yemen grows. US involvement in the war goes all the way back to the Obama administration, with Trump also in the last months of his presidency approving billions in new arms sales to the kingdom.

In particular Lockheed Martin produced F-35 stealth fighters that were set to be transferred to the UAE the have been "temporarily" blocked along with munitions to the Saudis, among other sales. Prior reports suggested the prior Trump deal was to send as many as 50 advanced F-35 fighters to the UAE.

"That sale and several other massive purchases of U.S. weaponry by Gulf Arab countries had been harshly criticized by Democrats in Congress," the report added.

The State Department said of the "temporary pause" that it is "temporarily pausing the implementation of some pending U.S. defense transfers and sales under Foreign Military Sales and Direct Commercial Sales to allow incoming leadership an opportunity to review."

And Axios further details that "The sales of F-35 jets and attack drones to the UAE and a large supply of munitions to Saudi Arabia will be paused pending a review." It added that it "signals a major policy shift from the Trump era, and may herald sharp tensions with both Gulf countries."

They'll just spend that money somewhere else, russia or china.

Look, weapons sales is messy, but trump was right, it will mean a good chunk of money for US arms manufacturers.

This is just the same short sighted nonsense like cutting off our energy production that will cause less money coming into this country and require more taxes to make up for.

Biden is a dud.

So what are we supposed to do to protect the muslims in Saudia Arabia? Be the world's policeman for them?

Bidens only motivation is to undue something trump did. With no consideration beyond that.

Because he's a one dimensional clown, just like his supporters. Add to the fact that reversing anything trump did is automatically going to cause instability in the region and it's a win win for his foolish supporters and his shadow puppets in the MIC.

Hopefully biden doesn't find out about the squirrel that trump has been feeding in the white house garden.

Otherwise he'd send out a few SS agents to go strangle it to death while recording the look in it's eyes as the light goes out.

All he's been doing, is inverting trumps moves. It's sad, but it satisfies the pundits.

So, now we'll see the resurgence of ISIS in the middle east since Saudi Arabia funded them...

They are setting up the old chess board before Trump mated them 4 years ago...

Biden and his warmongering allies that want to continue the military industrial complex is as telling as just about anything we've ever seen, in that peace does not sell weapons.

I hope all of the war hating biden voters out there are starting get the larger picture.
