The world is a more dangerous place because of Joe Biden.
And every day, he does something to make it worse.
Now, a dangerous regime in the Middle East is about to buy deadly weapons off Joe Biden.
Saudi Arabia has been one of the United States worst “allies” for decades now.
They abuse human rights in their own country, they bomb innocent civilians in Yemen, and they were even revealed to have had a role in the 9/11 attacks.
That’s right – Saudi Arabia had more of a role in the 9/11 attacks than Iraq, the country that George W. Bush scapegoated.
And yet in spite of that terrible history, the U.S. foreign policy establishment continues to swoon over the Saudi regime, shoveling money in their direction and selling them deadly weapons.
Joe Biden has continued those reckless policies. And now the issue is coming to the forefront once again.
According to Al Jazeera, “Saudi Arabia could run out of interceptor missiles for its US-made Patriot air-defence system in ‘months,’ according to a senior US official cited by the Financial Times (FT) newspaper, prompting Riyadh to appeal to regional allies for help to replenish the stock.”
The Saudi regime has burned through their U.S.-made weapons so quickly that they are coming back and begging for more.
And the history of the Biden administration and the U.S. foreign policy establishment suggests that they will give the Saudi’s everything that they want.
In fact, the article mentions all the broken promises made by Joe Biden and his failed foreign policy regime.
“In February last year, Biden said he would end US support for Saudi Arabia’s ‘offensive operations’ in Yemen, including ‘relevant arms sales.’ But several months later, his administration approved a $650m sale of air-to-air missiles to the kingdom.”
This shows how powerful and influential the Saudi lobby is in Washington. No matter how many war crimes they commit, or how many times they stab the U.S. in the back, U.S. foreign policy leaders continue giving them whatever they ask for.
The U.S. foreign policy establishment has a disastrous history of throwing away taxpayer money at projects around the world that do not benefit U.S. citizens.
They have given foreign aid to some of the most murderous regimes on the planet. They have given foreign aid to dictators and despots, who inevitably pocket the money for themselves.
They give money to both sides of international conflicts, such as funding Israel’s Iron Dome, while simultaneously funding the Palestinian National Authority.
Perhaps it is simply time for the U.S. to cut off all foreign aid to other countries, and invest that money at home – or just give it back to the taxpayers.
Selling weapons to the Saudis is perhaps the most egregious example of using American resources to help foreign regimes that do not deserve the help.
But until an American president chooses to finally say “No!” to the military-industrial complex, and stop funding foreign regimes, the U.S. will continue to find itself in bed with dangerous regimes like Saudi Arabia.
