That’s a lot of weapons. The figure, however, is grossly exaggerated. Supposedly the Saudis have promised to buy this 110 billion worth of weapons. That, according to economy analysts is not rue, not even in the next few years. It’s fake news that Horn has projected due to Trumps own words to that effect. In any event the four billion worth of sales that was done is 2017 is huge. What is shocking is that manufacturers of these killing machines say that the more weapons they make the more people they can employ. Translate: the more bomb-makers we employ the more people our customers can kill. Ah the luxury of being out of range.
Horn Report: Trump has said he does not want to halt a proposed $110 billion arms sale to Saudi Arabia because, he maintained, it would harm U.S. manufacturers. Report is here.
