Saudi cash to US for arms ‘blood money’
THE US has an administration that has shown, by word and deed, that it cares more for cutting lucrative arms deals to profit the corporate US weapons industry than it does for preventing war and maintaining the moral high ground.
The US needed to end arms deals with Saudi Arabia to avenge the murder of Jamal Khashoggi in Turkey. After the gruesome torture and murder of Khashoggi, one would have expected condemnation of such barbarism and an immediate end to further arms sales to the Saudi regime, especially when those weapons are killing innocent civilians in Yemen and creating human suffering of unprecedented proportions.
The US has become the war monger of the world, selling these weapons to Saudi Arabia for use against Yemen, to Israel for atrocities against Palestinians and fomenting other conflicts.
Any money paid to the US by Saudi Arabia in exchange for weapons now, since the murder of Jamal Khashoggi, would be blood money dragging us into the cesspool of tyranny swirling throughout the world. RIYAAD DHAI Durban
