as well as business. Just recently, on August 11th, the coalition bombed a Potato chip factory killing 14 workers.
The Saudis have purchased $641,000,000 worth of cluster munitions from U.S. defense contractors, particularly Textron Systems, since the beginning of the war.
In the first year of the war, 91% of cluster bomb casualties were civilians of whom 22% were children.
The Pentagon currently has an agreement to sell $60,000,000,000 worth of aircraft and naval ships to Riyadh, which was negotiated in part by then secretary of state Hillary Clinton in 2010.
In the latest sale of military equipment to the Riyadh, on August 9th, the State Department and Pentagon approved a $1,150,000,000 purchase of 130 tanks and armored vehicles, manufactured mostly by General Dynamics.
The USG not only provides billions in weapons, munitions, aircraft, tanks and ships to the Wahhabi Terrorist State, they also provide logistical support, military training and weapon servicing: tasks carried out by thousands of U.S. civilian and military personnel stationed in Saudi Arabia.
The true motive for the war should be obvious to anyone who has been paying attention for the past few months. For the U.S., this is a proxy war against Iran who sides with the Houthi rebels and former Yemeni president Ali Abdullah Saleh. For Saudi Arabia, it is an attempt to access to Yemen oil reserves by overthrowing the Supreme Political Council, which is supported by the Yemen Parliament, and reinstall Hadi's puppet regime.
Side Note: remember that when you vote in the up coming presidential election, you are voting for the figure head of a criminal syndicate who will ultimately be a corporate puppet swaying to the pull of her (I highly doubt Trump will win) financial strings.
