Is Selling Tanks to Saudi Arabia Such a Good Idea?

Washington has made another major arms sale to Saudi Arabia to replace tanks destroyed in the war in Yemen. The sale underscores the Obama administration’s deep role in backing the Saudi-led coalition fighting the Houthi rebels as the war is escalating.

    It’s time to stuff the sandnigger in chief into a 16″ battleship cannon and lob him into saudi arabia. Maybe he’ll get his 72 virgins and finally be free of the “man”chelle

    On a side note, this is a must read:

      That post at is something that has crossed my mind, as well as the minds of many others I’m sure. Obamba has emasculated the military higher command structure and has set up a smooth path to continue the ruination of the USA.
      I always include the in my daily internet read, I enjoy that mans subtle sense of humour and take on things going on.

      Except there’s no reason Hillary can’t take the oath of office if elected, even if indicted.

      SHIT that is depressing.

    It does seem to me that selling tanks and weapons to the enemy is rather strange, but then I admit to being no expert.

    • I think it’s a cultural thing.

      I just wonder who the Saudis are going to hire to run these tanks.
      The oil money has turned them into Eloi.

      Their money is green, and the tanks are being used against Yemen, not us.

    Selling the tanks is a good idea for Obama because it may be the incentive he needs to get the Saudis to finance his presidential library, as they have financed the libraries of every other living ex-president.

    If they pay cash, what’s the problem?


  • here we go

    this business will get out of control…..

    Saudi has money to buy Tanks? Let Saudi be forced to pay all the Construction Co. what they owe them so the companies can pay their workers and get 10’s of thousands of people out of the poverty that they are living in and get these same people the ability to go home .

    I think it’s a good idea. The money they spend on tanks and ammo means less money for the whabbi ranters and the mosque as nest of spies.

    And I hope the Iranians squander their 400 billion on guns too.
    The idea is to have both side burn through so much cash on stuff that blows up that they can’t create mischief elsewhere Iran-Iraq redux
