    It looks like President Donald has been working hard to get more jobs producing arms in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia...

    In a May 24 letter, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo notified congressional leaders of the national emergency declaration, waiving congressional review for 22 separate arms sales to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates totaling $8.1 billion.
    The arms package, previously blocked by Congress, includes 120,000 precision-guided bombs from Raytheon to the coalition. These will add to the tens of thousands of bombs that the Saudis and UAE have already stockpiled, so they could continue fighting in Yemen practically indefinitely. It also includes support for Saudi F-15 warplanes, mortars, anti-tank missiles and .50-caliber rifles.

    The emergency declaration also allows Raytheon Company to build high-tech bomb parts in Saudi Arabia. This information was first reported last Monday.
    The bomb parts to be jointly build by Raytheon and the Saudis include the control systems, guidance electronics and circuit cards for the Paveway “smart” bombs. According to Representative Ted Lieu, it seemed “to serve no purpose other than to forfeit our technology and prevent future congressional oversight”.
    Possibly the Saudis will copy the technology and use it to produce their own weapons, which they could use for example in Yemen or sell to other countries (without US Congress having a say).

    Raytheon executives have made their way into high-ranking positions.
    In 2017, Raytheon’s former vice president for government relations, Mark T. Esper, became Army secretary.

    According to the Times, Saudi Arabia has "ordered more than 27,000 missiles worth at least $1.8 billion from Raytheon alone" of which "about $650 million of those Raytheon orders came after the Saudi war in Yemen began".
    In May 2017, Raytheon signed a deal to work closely with the Saudi Arabian Military Industries Company. It is unclear whether the new production deal is part of that plan.

    On Wednesday, several Members of US Congress - , including Rand Paul, Lindsey Graham and Robert Menendez - announced that they would introduce “measures” against the arms deals. The “coalition” must just as terrified of the terrorist-supporting UN as the toothless Congress by now...
    Rand Paul commented:
    Few nations should be trusted less than Saudi Arabia. In recent years, they have fomented human atrocities, repeatedly lied to the United States and have proved to be a reckless regional pariah. It is concerning and irresponsible for the United States to continue providing them arms.
    Is Saudi Arabia really worse than the US, UK, Israel or the Netherlands?!?

    Malinowski, a top human rights official under President Obama, said the bombs will be used in Yemen, not for defending Saudi Arabia or UAE from Iran, as Trump administration officials have claimed: http://archive.is/8uqQe

    Dozens of civilians were reportedly injured on Tuesday in a missile strike by the Houthis on Abha International Airport in southern Saudi Arabia.
    The Yemeni rebel group said that its missile force had launched a “cruise missile” at the strategic airport, which has a large military part. A spokesman for the group said that “advanced U.S. air-defense systems” deployed inside the airport were not able to intercept the missile.
    “A cruise missile targeted the control tower directly, which resulted in its destruction,” Brig. Gen. Yahya Sari, a spokesman for the Houthis, said in a short press release.

    Contrary to the Houthis’ claims, the Saudi-led coalition said that the missile hit the arrival hall in the airport injuring 26 civilians, including three women and two children.
    Most of the injured civilians were treated on spot. However, 8 were transported to nearby hospitals.
    The Iran-backed Houthi terrorist militia, through its media, claimed full responsibility for this terrorist act using a cruise missile – as they claim- which constitutes a clear recognition and full responsibility for the targeting of civilians and civilian places that are subject to special protection under international humanitarian law, this may amount to a war crime,” a spokesman for the Saudi-led coalition, Col. Turki al-Malki, said in an official statement.
    Col. al-Malki said that the coalition’s experts are now working to determine the type of missile used in the attack on Abha International Airport.

    The Houthis have a track record of using precision-guided weapons. In 2017, the Iranian-backed group launched what is suspected to be an Iranian Soumar cruise missile at the Barakah nuclear power plant in the UAE.

    The upcoming hours will likely reveal additional details about the unusual attack, which was another demonstration of the Houthis’ growing capabilities.

    so yeah... everyone's sayin it was a cruise... which means guided/non ballistic... 'smart' weaponry.
    Iranian 'designed' Houthi fabricated (copied US/Raytheon) is very probable.
    If Houthi/Ansurallah has it.... Hezbollah/Lebanon has it. 4 sure.

    haha... like I said... this 'account' ALWAYS has extraordinary 'access' to updates/info/photos/breaking... etc.


    https://twitter.com/BabakTaghvaee/st...27426892668928

    the basic 'idea' for the 'account' is to pose as an 'Iranian Patriot' .... who loves his country and wants it liberated
    and is sad and apologetic for all the 'anti-Israel' and 'anti-US' propaganda by the cro-magnon mullahs who constantly harass 'free thinkers'
    and women who won't wear their hajibs. **wink,wink**

    Read it. Read it again.

    'He'
    is now being quoted and 'picked up' quite regularly by the hungry media for 'breaking' images and information...
    therefore
    'His' SPIN gets
    1. worldwide coverage
    2. BREAKING worldwide impact as to 'who' and 'why'

    It's a game. What a 'guy'. He (obviously) knows MORE than you... so you can BELIEVE him.
    Honest.

    If you ignore the spin you can pick out some useful info though.
    I didn't see this anywhere yesterday:
