Donald Trump and the $380 Billion Saudi Problem


One of this year’s biggest news events was the announcement by US President Donald Trump creating a closer alliance with Saudi Arabia. This came with a Saudi pledge of over $380 Billion dollars to the US government. Nearly $2 Billion to be spent on purchasing US weapons to be used in Yemen, a country with a devastating humanitarian crisis.

Donald Trump speech was scripted to please Saudi Arabia’s rhetoric against it’s regional rival Iran. Accusing Iran of spreading extremism and terrorism. What Donalt Trump did not mention was that Iran is a Shia Muslim country, while Saudi Arabia is the heartland of Sunni Muslims.

The reason that this is so significant is that every single terrorist attack carried out on Western and Asian countries in the past decade or more has all been by Sunni Muslims. Hence for anyone that understood these simple facts, it will be easy to see the fake news that Saudi Arabia is trying to spread with the help of Donald Trump.

This blind alliance by Donald Trump with Saudi Arabia should send alarm bells ringing around the world as this will only send billions of dollars worth of high-tech US weapons to the hands of ISIS terrorists and groups very similar to its extreme right wing ideology.

Nearly all of 9/11 attackers were from Saudi Arabia. Nearly half of those that are joining terrorist groups like ISIS and Nusra Front are from Saudi Arabia. The religious calls (fatwas) supporting groups like ISIS all started from Saudi Arabia and still does happen in the country at local levels.

For the first few years of the Syrian War, Saudi Arabia pumped in hundreds of millions as well as indirect weapons supply to various extremist rebel groups that went on to become what ISIS is today.

From this, the most important point for everyone to remember is that it is the ideology that these extremists carry has been the hardest thing for any Western government to fight. This ideology is hard to fight because no Western government until today is ready to call out the Saudi Government to stop spreading their right-wing extremist ideology to Muslims around the world.

Saudi Arabia has been financing extremist schools and colleges around the Muslim world that adhere to their form of strict Islam that teaches intolerance and violence towards those that does not agree with their right-wing interpretation of Islam.

Now that the US President has cemented ties with Saudi Arabia, it is up to Europe, China and Russia to lead the fight against terrorism. They need to call out Saudi Arabia to enforce a full and strict ban on anyone, including its own monarchy family members who still support the spread of ISIS ideology. It is very doubtful that a rich country like this will ever listen to the rest of the world. However, doing nothing can be disastrous for the future all developed countries.
