PODCAST: Will the Israel-UAE Deal Lead to More Arm Sales?

Netanyahu objects to the sale of F-35s

On FPF #534, I cover several important stories in the news. Documents from BlueLeaks expose the government spending thousands on training police in junk sciences. Andy McCarthy writes in the National Review how Kevin Clinesmith’s guilty plead also is an indictment of Rep. Adam Schiff. The US Ambassador to Israel said the new deal with the UAE could open up new arms sales to the UAE. However, Israel expressed concern over sales of the F-35 to the UAE. Israel is hoping to have new deals with Bahrain and Oman.

the Us gives money to nations to buy their weapons—their economy would collapse without these govt industries—the American version of “capitalism”. I suspect it matters little that UAE and Israel will exchange embassies—the USA sells weapons to any dictatorship or medieval fiefdom

Israel just wants to sell their IAI Nesher and IAI Kfir to those who would otherwise buy the F-35.
So far, the Israel Aircraft Industries have just copied French fighters and built their own avionics.

Doesn’t everything really come down to arms sales, when it comes to Israel there will never be peace in the Middle East as Israel’s founding was an ongoing act of terrorism with each settlement that is built where Palestinian homes have been bulldozed. I’m sure Republicans project for a new American century would prioritise Israel as the strongest power in the Middle East after all that was why 7 countries were on the chopping block to be taken down in 5 years. Thankfully Iran has just signed this 25 year oil deal with China and now that Russia has entered the Middle East hopefully there will be more protection for countries like our Iraq, Syria and Iran? The future will be exciting but scary.

Jesus Christ. I can’t say this enough…

IT IS BOTH PARTIES. BOTH PARTIES ARE BOUGHT AND PAID FOR BY OLIGARCHS. NEITHER ONE OF THEM GIVES ONE DAMN ABOUT YOU. THEY WORK FOR BILLIONAIRES AND EXXON-MOBILE AND WALL STREET AND BOEING AND RAYTHEON.

BOTH PARTIES.

There are many who refer to scary as exciting to cover their cowardice.
Fortunately that will never apply to you, since you recognize terrorism as it is.

Forty-percent of African gold smuggled through the UAE. That might tantalize Israeli and American government officials.
