        It seems that without bombs the tribes do not want to unite. They also have presidents - monarchs.

      "Specialists" in bombing hospitals, schools and weddings decided to supply "smart" weapons to the same "specialists" who were stupefied by the heat negative

    Excuses for stupidity and stupidity are agreed in advance (in documents this is spelled out as bad weather conditions).
    Perhaps the Americans immediately, initially the 3rd grade or even illiquid assets to the Saudis, know that consumers will still break one and lose the second? There is little sense from such allies, and you can write off a lot of money for them (the main thing is to paint the goods in the desired color).

    Crap! The USA decided to appease the SA after a showdown about the declassification of the entire report on the participation of the Saudis in the 9/11 attacks. This and the states began to cave in.

      Nope.
      It was the United States that decided to take a cash contribution from the SA, and so that they were more conspicuous, they pre-scribbled them in the media about the Saudi track in 9-11.

    Business continues ... money doesn’t smell ... well, they will deliver and WHAT ...
    The main thing is troop training and approaches to the combat use of equipment and weapons ... the saudas are not strong here ... and the bomb itself does not work for you ...

    Bombs, planes, tanks are all without the military convinced of the rightness of their cause nothing. All this in the hands of random people is a danger to everyone, including themselves.

    The United States sells another batch of weapons to the "most democratic state" in the Middle East, and they are absolutely not worried about the state of human rights within this state, and the fact that this state sponsors terrorism is waging a war against a neighboring state. The US trades with a government that meets the US on all criteria.

    Something I will not go to hell with this ........ so many guided bombs? In Yemen, they have already checked in with their American weapons.
    The impression that this is a bribe to the Americans for certain concessions does not leave all the time, there simply are no other explanations. They themselves do not know how to use, and they are useless fighters, start a war with the use of such weapons, but with whom ???
