Was the Biden administration’s halt of arms sales to Saudi Arabia and the UAE at the behest of Israel? From Finian Cunningham at strategic-culture.org:
The bigger concern of Biden and Blinken seems to be damage limitation to America’s bloody image, and also doing a big favor for Israel.
Antony Blinken, the newly-appointed US top diplomat, has announced a pause in arms sales to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates out of apparent concern over American weapons being used in prosecuting the horrendous war in Yemen.
Blinken was confirmed by the Senate for the post of Secretary of State this week. One of his first moves in taking up the post has been to call a halt to arms deals with Saudi Arabia and the UAE which the previous Trump administration had cut.
There’s been growing bipartisan concern in the US Congress that American weaponry has been deployed by the Saudis and Emiratis in their war on Yemen. Trump ignored all appeals to halt arms sales.
That war has resulted in the world’s worst current humanitarian crisis with millions of Yemenis facing starvation amid mounting evidence of atrocities against civilians from Saudi and Emirati air strikes.
The US, along with Britain and France, are implicated in the horror because these countries have supplied warplanes and missiles to the Arab coalition attacking Yemen.
