    Interesting old trivia: some fake news from 2009:

    Trump and Saudi Arabia treat terrorism like Trump's mistresses. Pay them off and hope nobody finds out. Giving money to Al-Qaeda and letting them keep their arms and equipment, what could possibly go wrong?

    Saudi-led coalition recruited hundreds of Al-Qaeda militants in Yemen, paid others to leave


    "That’s because the coalition cut secret deals with al-Qaida fighters, paying some to leave key cities and towns and letting others retreat with weapons, equipment and wads of looted cash, an investigation by The Associated Press has found. Hundreds more were recruited to join the coalition itself.


    These compromises and alliances have allowed al-Qaida militants to survive to fight another day – and risk strengthening the most dangerous branch of the terror network that carried out the 9-11 attacks. Key participants in the pacts said the U.S. was aware of the arrangements and held off on any drone strikes."

    Where in my post did I state an opinion in either direction on the issue? I was stating simple facts in response to a post that was clearly confused or incorrect.
    You were stating that selling arms to Saudi Arabia meant hundreds of jobs in Canada. I was pointing out how we could multiply that if we sold ams to other totalitarian regimes that sponsor terrorism.

    Yemen: Airstrike hits MSF cholera treatment center in Abs

    A newly constructed cholera treatment center run by the international medical humanitarian organization Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) in Abs, Yemen, was hit by an airstrike Monday at approximately 5:40 am.

    “This morning's attack on an MSF cholera treatment center (CTC) by the Saudi and Emirati-led coalition (SELC) shows complete disrespect for medical facilities and patients. Whether intentional or a result of negligence, it is totally unacceptable. The compound was clearly marked as a health facility and its coordinates were shared with the SELC. With only half of health facilities in Yemen fully functional, nearly 10 million people in acute need, and an anticipated outbreak of cholera, the CTC had been built to save lives. MSF has temporarily frozen its activities in Abs until the safety of its staff and patients is guaranteed.”

    Shhh, don't say that too loudly with the millions we're giving Saudi Arabia in our arms deal with them.

    It puts 3000 canadians out of work!
    Think of how many jobs we could create if we supplied arms to every two bit dictator! Syria seems like an ideal possibility. And the Taliban and ISIS would be great customers.
    I like the way you said that

    Canada is not sending Saudi Arabia money. I'm not sure if I heard this correctly but it seems according to the news last night, that the arms deal to SA is suspended. Could the report mean this?

    Not sure what you're trying to say here, but nothing is being "given" to Saudi Arabia in those arms deals. They're paying Canadian companies 15 billion for them, if memory serves. If that deal is canceled, that will mean the loss of hundreds of jobs in Canada, and Saudi Arabia will just buy similar vehicles elsewhere.
    Its called a contract to supply Saudi Arabia with arms.
    Then why did you clearly imply that Canada was sending Saudi Arabia money?

    On the state of the world:


    Arab world stands with Riyadh in its opposition to Canada’s interference in Saudi affairs


    “ ...“We cannot accept our laws and sovereignty becoming subject to pressure. Some countries believe that their diplomatic model and experience allows them to interfere in other’s affairs.” “
