      Britain forgot

      How do you forget if Britain’s main terrorist is there, but flickered in London laughing or they wanted to nightmare their own population, so as not to rock the boat ...

    Here they have money there. And why do not the British sell it, since Boris is right here, they must take advantage of the time until the bombs and missiles have an expiration date.

    If the Saudis took the disarmament, too, would put everything right. Or the Chinese. So what's the point of losing the market?

      The Saudis have gained arms, enough for two world wars, they would have learned how to fight. So let them take it, it’s still not horse feed. That's just again they will use it "by mistake", they can not do otherwise.

    What is there to be surprised at? Anglo-Saxons will never give hungry rice, but give weapons to kill the hungry, it’s easy.

      The fact is that if you feed a million hungry blacks in a year, then in a year there will already be one and a half million hungry blacks. This is counterproductive. USSR fed-and what happened? laughing

        Here the matter is different ...... You are probably aware that there are different approaches to solving the problems of the hungry. They can either give fish, or a fishing rod, in order to catch the fish themselves. But the Anglo-Saxons go the other way, they first make people hungry, and then they destroy them.

          In Rhodesia, the evil Anglo-Saxons were not even given a fishing rod, but a super-trawler, and one of the stable export-oriented economies turned into Zimbabwe. And give them everything to eat.

      In the photo of the destroyed military transport aircraft Il-76TD Yemeni Air Force. A transport worker burned out on the territory of the Sanaa International Airport during an Allied air raid (the coalition is led by Saudi Arabia).
      (he was mistaken for the "Russian side", then they wrote about the downed humanitarian).
      The ratio is something like this

      and sale of shares 19%
      But in general, the sale of weapons is carried out by countries almost always exclusively for the sake of money. VON recently someone sold something to Azerbaijan ... and nothing, they say if we don’t, then others would do it all. And there are many such cases. And not one country.

          exactly this photo

          the authors make a clumsy hint for what weapons .. In this case, if the SA is Yemen. If the SA acquires MANPADS in BE, then it is ISIS or the opposition, etc., etc.
          With a photo it is unsuccessful of course.

          it should be inserted
          The destroyed building in Sana'a, in which 8 people died on October 140. It was after this that the British government intended to cancel the deal.

    Hussites, “crushed the Saudis” in Yemen, and all these “arms contracts” (including the recent multi-billion dollar contracts that Trump concluded), is just an attempt to attract, so to speak, stronger players in this conflict, since the “Saudi the coalition "from the GCC countries has not shown its effectiveness, but at the moment it has actually collapsed
