Heavens to Murgatroyd!

From Reuters news-wire: Obama Administration Sales to Saudi Arabia Top $115 Billion

Arming Saudi Arabia(gasp) – a monarchy cum totalitarian dictatorship with one of the worst records on Human Rights (e.g., severe oppression of women, cruel harassment and lethal punishment of homosexual people, persecution of beliefs and practices outside the ultraconservative cohort in command, silencing journalists, smothering personal expression and so on). Currently, they are bombing one of the poorest countries in the Gulf, Yemen, a defenseless nation-- and bombing Yemen with weaponry supplied by Obush et al.
...remember when fifteen of nineteen 9/11 hijackers were citizens of Saudi Arabia (and how 9/11 illogically led to devastating wars in Afghanistan and Iraq)? 

Was President Obama just impersonating a Nobel Peace Prize Winner while arming Saudi Arabia(see above Reuters link) and many others?

From a Guardian article by Codepink founding member Medea Benjamin (

-In 2016, US special operators could be found in 70% of the world’s nations, 138 countries — a staggering jump of 130% since the days of the Bush administration.

-Obama authorized over 10 times more drone strikes than George W Bush, and automatically painted all males of military age in these regions as combatants, making them fair game for remote controlled killing.

-Given that drones account for only a small portion of the munitions dropped in the past eight years, the numbers of civilians killed by Obama’s bombs could be in the thousands. But we can’t know for sure as the administration, and the mainstream media, has been virtually silent about the civilian toll of the administration’s failed interventions.
