U.S. TAXPAYERS ARE PAYING TO PROTECT SAUDI OIL
The following was provided by the Carnegie Endowment for
“It’s a scene right out of the movie ‘Groundhog Day’. Every
year, the administration submits its annual request to Congress to
appropriate billions of dollars for America’s partners in the Middle East so
they can purchase military hardware from us. Congress rubber stamps
these requests with little regard for whether this assistance achieves U.S.
This year, the administration pushed through an 81-billion-dollar
deal with Saudi Arabia, the Arab Emirates and Jordan, using as a reason for
the largess, the growing threat posed by Iran and its surrogate military
forces throughout the region.
The incredibly rapid spread of the corona virus has radically changed
the aspect of this quid pro quo and we, the taxpayers to the beneficent U.S.
Treasury, are expected to foot the bill.
Here’s the reason for the shortfall: On March 8th 2020, the
Saudis decided to counter the profits in increased petroleum production by
American Oil interests by flooding the markets with cheap Arabian Oil.
President Trump must charge the head of our State Department, Mike
Pompeo, with negotiating with the Saudi Princes for a far better deal or we
will cease being their bodyguards, effective immediately. This could
begin with refusing to participate in any more sword dances in Riyadh.
