Remember when liberalism was anti-war?
Yeah, neither do I.
The administration of US President Joe Biden has told Congress it is proceeding with more than $23bn in weapons sales to the United Arab Emirates, including advanced F-35 aircraft, armed drones and other equipment, congressional aides said on Tuesday.
A State Department spokesperson said the administration would move forward with the proposed sales to the UAE, “even as we continue reviewing details and consulting with Emirati officials” related to the use of the weapons.
The Democratic president’s administration had paused the deals agreed to by former Republican President Donald Trump in order to review them. The sales to the Gulf nation were finalised right before Trump left office.
The Trump administration told Congress in November it had approved the sale to the UAE as a side deal to the Abraham Accords, an agreement brokered by the United States in September in which the UAE agreed to normalise relations with Israel.
In the last months of the Trump administration, Israel reached deals with the UAE, Bahrain, Sudan and Morocco as part of the accords.
The $23.37bn package contained products from General Atomics, Lockheed Martin and Raytheon Technologies, including 50 F-35 Lighting II aircraft, up to 18 MQ-9B Unmanned Aerial Systems and a package of air-to-air and air-to-ground munitions.
Some US legislators have criticised the UAE for its involvement in the war in Yemen, a conflict that has fuelled one of the world’s worst humanitarian disasters and are concerned that the weapons transfers might violate US guarantees that Israel will retain a military advantage in the region.
Israel said it did not object to the sales.
That’s all going to be used in things that the United Nations calls “war crimes.”
But no one seems to care.
Instead, people care about bizarre delusions involving Russia and China.
Somehow, mysterious hacking theories and mysterious video of blindfolded Moslem terrorists getting on a train in Xinjiang are worse than starving tens of thousands of children to death in Yemen.
This single hypocrisy should be enough to convince the world that the entire agenda of the United States ZOG apparatus is much different than what it claims.
But the media doesn’t press the issue, so no one cares.
