A strange announcement from the White House was carried in CBS news, for "big bucks" and "many jobs" for American. But there is no statement about how when, or if payment is to be made to and by whom. CBS announced preposterously that:
"President Trump signed a multi-billion-dollar arms and economic deal with Saudi Arabia Saturday in a move intended to strengthen the U.S.-Saudi Arabian alliance against ISIS..."
But, does anyone not know that the Saudi's are the financial backers, if not founder of ISIS? So the arms deal sounds more like support for ISIS' Godfather than opposition to it! Moreover, The Saudis have been hard pressed to pay their bills since crude oil prices dropped by 60%, two years ago, so the sale sounds like a USA credit scheme to fund more vicious wars in the Middle East against Syria and Iran. What happened to Donald Trumps call for Peace yesterday?- Editor CEC
CBS News: "The agreement is worth $110 billion effective immediately and $350 billion over 10 years, in an effort to equip Saudi Arabia and Persian Gulf partners in the fight against ISIS. The agreement will provide fighter jets, tanks, combat ships and anti-missile defense systems and create defense-sector jobs in the U.S., according to the White House. The deal includes additional private-sector agreements and a joint vision statement with Saudi Arabia, one of the world's largest oil producers."
