You-Ess-Eh! You-Ess-AY!


Dollars for bombs:
The US government has approved a request from Saudi Arabia to buy more than 19,000 bombs and smart bombs for its air force, the State Department said on Monday. Congress will have to green light the deal, but the $1.29 billion dollar sale is likely to go through, and will replenish Saudi stores used up in their war on Yemen
Where they are bombing towns full of civilians, hit museums and also destroyed who knows how many historical buildings. But who cares eh? They aren't ISIL, so the Americans are obviously quite happy to take their dollars. Come on America, why the two-facedness? Why not just openly send a sales rep to Assad and one to Raqqa too? Lottsa dollars there, probably.

Saudi Warplanes Target Yemen's Rare Historical Monuments

The order includes 5,200 Paveway II laser-guided bombs in their GBU-10 and GBU-12 variants, along with 1,100 of the more modern, longer range GBU-24 Paveway III.
There are 12,000 general purpose bombs weighing between 500 and 2,000 pounds and 1,500 devastating 2,000-pound "bunker busters," the BLU-109 penetrator.
These are designed to smash hardened concrete structures.
So they can blow real live people to smithereens even if they are taking shelter in bunkers.
