Donald Trump—The New Merchant of Menace?

“I’m proud to be allying with terrorist states like Saudi Arabia.”

…by Jonas E. Alexis

 

Let’s go back to February of last year. If you were to interview Donald Trump during that particular month and ask him about the World Trade Center, he would have said something like this:

“Who blew up the World Trade Center? It wasn’t the Iraqis, it was Saudi — take a look at Saudi Arabia, open the documents. It wasn’t the Iraqis that knocked down the World Trade Center. You will find out who really knocked down the World Trade Center, ‘cuz they have papers in there that are very secret. You may find it’s the Saudis, okay?”[1]

According to Trump, the Saudis were accomplices in bringing the World Trade Center down.[2] Fast forward to October 2017:

“In the first eight months of 2017, a total of $1.56 billion worth of arms have been delivered from the U.S. to Saudi Arabia; during this period, the U.S. has more than doubled its bombs, missiles, and ammunition deliveries to Saudi Arabia, and nearly doubled the deliveries of armored fighting vehicles like the M1 tank, when compared with the first eight months of 2016, under the Obama administration.

“The Trump administration has shipped Saudi Arabia $561 million in bombs and missiles, $503 million in armored fighting vehicles and parts, and $552 million in parts to maintain military aircraft like Apache gunships, Blackhawk helicopters, and F15 jets for use in their disastrous war in Yemen. The total value of arms delivered to Saudi in 2017 represents a $70 million increase compared with the same eight-month period in 2016.”[3]

Trump, in his subterranean mind, thinks that he can “make America great again” by allying with terrorist states like Saudi Arabia. As we have seen in a previous article, Saudi Arabia has never ceased to killed civilians in Yemen. Yet major Western powers tell us that Saudi Arabia is doing just fine. The same jokers condemn countries they do not like.

Foreign Policy asked in March of last year: “How can the United States, Britain, and France keep shipping Riyadh arms when its pilots are dropping bombs on innocent civilians?”[4] Well, there is no rational explanation for this diabolical plan at all because the Israeli regime puts its stamp of approval on it. And once that’s done, the Saudis can kill men, women and children at will. Consider this:

“Salah Basrallah, a farmer in Yemen’s northern region of Saada, stood among a cluster of nine houses that used to comprise his little village of Eram. He surveyed the pulverized scene in silence. He had lost 21 family members in four consecutive airstrikes on his village, including his six children and wife. Nearby lay the remnants of an MK-80 series bomb, similar to those found at many other coalition strike locations and which the United States is known to supply to Saudi Arabia.

“The attacks killed 55 people in total, according to local authorities in Saada, including 35 children. Several people were killed in follow-up airstrikes, as they tried to rescue people in the aftermath of the first bombing. It took survivors five days to dig out all the bodies; many had been shredded to pieces.

“Fast forward to this year. With the coalition bombing campaign hitting the one-year mark, airstrikes continue to devastate the lives of innocent Yemeni families. In the capital of Sanaa, all that remains of the home where Judge Yahya Rubaid and his family once lived is a metal skeleton, chunks of concrete dangling from what used to be his living room.

“An airstrike hit at 1:30 a.m. on Jan. 25, as the judge and his wife, children, and grandchildren slept. A second strike followed shortly after, the sound echoing through the city.”[5]

We can go on to cite similar stories for hours. Suppose you wake up one morning and you happen to find all your family members dead on the floor. Suppose Kim Jung-un was responsible for that. Suppose he continues to  do the same thing all over America. What would you think? Or what would America in general declare?  Wouldn’t we declare war on North Korea in a matter of seconds?

So, how can we continue to carpet bomb civilians in the Middle East virtually every month and expect them to  love us? How crazy can it be? How can these people apply one standard for themselves and a completely different standard for virtually every single country in the Middle East?

Now, ask yourself these important questions: where is the Zionist media? If they really want to dethrone Trump, why don’t they focus on serious issues such as ending perpetual wars in the Middle East and refusing to listen to the Israeli regime? Why don’t they ask the administration about their covert activity with the Saudis?

Moreover, where are mush-heads like Alex Jones and Paul Joseph Watson?

  1. The Americans people have been pumped up to a hyper patriotic fever that is displayed at sporting events such as collegiate and professional football games in order to sell to the American public, the idea of a war with Iran, Russia and China. A war that would be a disaster for America. No American will be immune to it.
    Unfortunately the Trumpettes who continue to support this ignorant, sorry excuse for a human being have short term memories. Americans by and large suffer from political amnesia. So it’s not only easy for them to forget what Trump said last year it’s also easy for them to attack anyone who recalls those statements made by trump, as lies and left wing propaganda.
    Trumps involvement with KSA is an international embarrassment. Selling arms to one of the most despicable regimes on the planet, a nation with horrible human rights record, a nation ruled by a cruel Wahhabi religion and a family of miscreants.
    So what did Trumpy get out of this arms deal? Concessions of course.
    The truth is Trump has no moral proclivity. He is a self serving narcissist, who is total consumed with himself. Those who continue to support this human failure appear to have lost touch with reality.
    Trump will not and is not making America great again.
    Just the opposite. he is destroying what’s left of it.

  2. NO MATTER HOW MUCH ARMOUR OR ARTILLERY; GUNS; GRENADES ETC.THEY ARE STILL SAUDIS AND ARE COWARDS .THEY ARE HAVING TROUBLE WITH THE HOUTIS .CAN YOU IMAGINE AN IRANIAN IRGC UNIT AGAINST THESE FOOLS. I SAY SELL THEM ALL WE CAN .IN REALITY YES THE WALL STREETER S GET RICH.BUT IN THE REALM OF REALITY THE AMERICAN WORKERS GETS A LIVING AND A GOOD ONE AT THAT. IF WE DON’T THE ISRAELI ARMS MAKERS WILL AND BRITS FRENCH ETC.

    • The Saudi army would simply fold, much as the French army did when Germany invaded France in 1949.
      As Gordon has explained in the past, the Saudi military leadership is corrupted, lazy and incompetent. They couldn’t lead a Girl Scout troop.

  3. https://www.veteranstoday.com/2017/02/28/deadly-us-raid-on-yemen-produced-no-major-intelligence/ Quote:
    – First published … February 28, 2017 –
    “A recent US ground and aerial attack on the Yemeni province of Bayda, which left dozens of Yemeni civilians and a US serviceman dead, has not produced any significant intelligence, officials say in contradiction to earlier claims boasting of the raid’s success.
    Retired US Admiral James Stavridis also challenged the fatal US raid.
    “When we look at evidently very little actual intelligence out, the loss of a high-performance aircraft and above all the loss of a highly trained special forces member of SEAL Team 6, I think we need to understand why this mission, why now, what happened, and what the actual output was,” Stavridis said.
    Some reports said a total of 57 people, including civilians, were killed in the assault, during which Apache combat helicopters struck the Yemeni village from the air before commandos were dropped in for the raid.
    The Bureau of Investigative Journalism estimated that at least 25 civilians, including nine children under the age of 13, were among the fatalities.” Coward Trump has blood on his hands.

    • When one looks carefully at this attack in Yemen last February, the U.S. is an embarrassment and is quite incompetent. Yet they brag they can destroy any country without consequences. Obviously most of the world with justification holds hatred for the U.S. It is only a matter of time before the dupes in the United States are subject to some of the same pain they dole out to the rest of the world on a daily or hourly basis. Shame on America.
