Part of the 30 billion dollar F-15 US deal to Saudi Arabia, with a 64 billion deal to follow.
When the worlds richest nations like the US and UK provide intelligence, surveillance and arms to another of the worlds richest nations, Saudi Arabia, to butcher the regions poorest nation, Yemen, that is not a coalition of the willing, that is a coalition of the killing. It's a wholesale butcher party and everyone wants to profit on the action. There is fresh insult to the injury considering Obama's recent crocodile tears, every-time he "Thinks of those Kids" involving recent US mass shootings. Well what about your drone murders in Africa, Yemen, Pakistan, Iraq etc? What about the thousands of innocents you killed while your coked up jockeys pushed the "kill" button for you, be you never shed any tears then?

Oil Rich Saudi Arabia
Amnesty International reckons the UK is breaching international law by fueling the Yemen slaughter and selling arms to the Saudi's.
But there is heartening news. The Saudi's appear weak and unable to suppress the Houti's in Yemen and after rounding up the balance of the Petrodollar gulf-whore monarchies against Iran, are appearing desperate and ever more the loose cannon.
For all the horrors the Western powers are backing in the middle east, especially in Yemen and Syria, there is hope on the horizon and a sensible Russian presence in the region, which is no doubt sending the Saudi's into panic mode.
