Re: Senate To Overide Trump Lies On Saudi Arabia

Here is something all should watch for in the Middle East over the next few weeks. It has gotten little attention but could change  everything. As you know The Syrian Govt., Russia, Iran, Turkey are on one side, and Saudi Arabia, US, Kurd Syrian forces on the other. Turkey has announced it plans to eliminate the Syrian Kurds in Northern Syria by attacking their bases which are near The border with Turkey. The Kurds are the PKK in Turkey and their main terrorist group. The US has our Armed forces with the Kurds in Syria. That means when Turkey attacks you can see US troops killed. Turkey said it is not attacking US troops, but the Kurds. Now here is a kicker. Turkey is a member of NATO as the US is. There is a large NATO airbase in Turkey, and we have planes and forces there. I have seen this base a few years ago. The Turkish Air Force will I am sure be part of this attack, and its planes could be taking off from that base for their attack flights which can kill our Troops. Could the US and Turkey be headed for a military showdown. Once again the Great Trump in action destroying the middle east, and possibly a war between NATO members.  Watch this as it could really turn bad for all of us thanks to Trump.

Congress can reign in trump if they have the balls to. That explains why Congress hasn't reigned in trump. They need to completely over-ride trump on Yemen and Saudi Arabia as a whole, the Saudis need punished badly by the United States or we stand for nothing but $$$$$$$.

Well here's part of the problem - Speaker Ryan refused again today to allow Debate in the House on a bill to remove the American Military from the business of killing children in Yemen

 

Here's the Real Horror - there was a attempt to add a ammendment to the Farm Bill to at least force members of the House to stand up in public & tell the American People if they supported the US Military's continued participation in the slaughter of Children in Yemen or not

 

The vote was close something like 203 to 200 - 5 Democrats voted against allowing the Ammendment

Senate To Overide Trump Lies On Saudi Arabia

174 Views
Message 5 of 5

Senate set to buck Trump on Saudi Arabia

 

A bipartisan majority is expected to vote to withdraw U.S. support for Saudi forces in Yemen’s civil war.

 

The Senate advanced a resolution Wednesday to withdraw U.S support for Saudi-backed forces at war in Yemen, with senators predicting at least a narrow majority will ultimately defy the Trump administration on the matter.
