50. Oh I know exactly whereof you speak.

 

US planes refuel the Saudi AF, drones bomb various targets killing mainly civilians (since that is what war IS, fullstop), warships support the blockade, the Saudi military is US-armed, all of this converges but nothing's ever related. Everything's packaged in neat fragments, each has its rationalization or accompanying press release from the Pentagon to justify it, which will be faithfully transported here by you and your bud. It's as biased and ludicrous as pretty much any other nationalist distortion of the world's realities.

There is no justification for supporting the Saudis in any way. They are the world's "leading sponsor of terrorism," not Iran.

The US has no moral standing in the Middle East after all its crimes there, and we the people have no interest in determining who wins every factional fight around the globe. That's how you sink into unsolvable messes that you make worse by your "interventions."

Our interest is to get the fuck out and convert to solar and wind before the fracked earth stops yielding oil and gas and the aquifers are are all poisoned. Our interest is in spending these resources at home and being an example of peace and development.

Fuck imperial management in the Middle East, let the Russians sink in and get themselves destroyed instead, if you prefer. It's very mid-20th century thinking, wake up to what time it is.
