Tyler Durden - Leaked Memo Shows US Overlooked Mass Civilian Deaths In Yemen To Preserve Arms Sales

G.W.Bush once said that sometimes money trumps peace. 

On rare occasion a story is unearthed in the mainstream media which demonstrates in stunning clarity how major foreign policy decisions are really made in Washington, especially when it comes to waging perpetual war in the Middle East often under the official rhetorical guise of "protecting civilians".
A bombshell Wall Street Journal report details a leaked classified memo which shows Secretary of State Mike Pompeo decided to continue US military involvement in the Saudi war on Yemen in order to preserve a massive $2 billion weapons deal with Riyadh

It’s tempting to blame key individuals for our world’s problems, but let’s consider that Raytheon has 64,000 employees, General Dynamics 98,600, and Lockheed Martin 100,000.

All these people make their livings from the Yemen nightmare, which is only one example.

Every Franko out there (“No one has died in Yemen”) contributes to the nightmares. Perhaps every one of us contributes to the nightmares directly or indirectly, just by living in Western society. Perhaps we cannot avoid this. Still, we don’t have to be Frankos about it. We don’t have to revel in it, or make our living directly from it.



Click the link below, scroll a quarter of the way down, and see the image of a CNN report on “Russian meddling” in Hurricane Florence rescue operations.

It’s hilarious.

Yo they are at war:

Tyler Durden: "Military contractors sustain the war between the Saudis and the Houthis because war is profitable.

Franko: "Yo, they are at war."

So you’re saying SA should just go in there and kill them all quickly?????

US should just go kill everybody over there in the hole shithole region in like a few days (which we could easily) and get it over with?????
