So now just a few days after the anniversary of the attack on the World Trade Center, BMT (Bottomless Moral Turpitude…..aka that which occupies the Oval Office) is talking about “helping” the Saudis in responding to an attack on their refineries by “Iran?”.
The entire attack on the WTC was financed by Saudi money, although it has never been revealed who or how. Most of the terrorists who killed so many Americans on that day of infamy were Saudis. Of course America did nothing toward Saudi for that attack, even quickly transporting members of the Ben Laden family out of the USA back home. Today Saudi is led by one of the most murderous dictators in the world, responsible for the slaughter of an American resident Saudi, about which BMT has afforded all the cover needed to maintain our weapons sales to this tyrant. As Dwight D. Eisenhower informed America, our policy would be led by the military-industrial complex, as it has for decades and continues right today. We are the biggest arms merchant, grim reaper extraordinaire in the history of the world.
I pray our Congress this time stands up to the Oval Office, as it totally failed to do after 911. If we get involved in helping the Saudi Coalition with retaliation against Iran, it will be a war that likely will bring this country to our own demise, given the other issues we cannot afford to ignore. The war in Iraq and Afghanistan together will pale in comparison with a war with Iran.
Our weapons sold and given to the Saudis has facilitated for many months the air attacks by the Saudis on the civilians of Yemen, and has created what today is the largest humanitarian crisis on the globe. Those Americans, here in Dallas Fort Worth and around the country, who work in the military weapons industry should really self assess what their values are, and consider the consequences of their work. But of course we will get the same response, “people kill people, not guns or weapons.” Sad.
