President Trump claimed on Friday that Saudi Arabia has ‘already deposited $1billion in the bank’ so that the United States would continue to station troops in the desert kingdom.

‘Saudi Arabia is paying us for [our troops],’ Trump told Fox News host Laura Ingraham.

‘We have a very good relationship with Saudi Arabia. I said, 'listen, you’re a very rich country. You want more troops? I’m going to send them to you, but you’ve got to pay us.'

'They’re paying us. They’ve already deposited $1 billion in the bank.’

This is an outrage! Another example of Capitalism gone corrupt as our youth in uniform are now being treated as nothing more than cattle to be slaughtered not for honor of the country, but for profits.

It was Smedley Butler, retired at the highest rank in the US Marine Corps, who pointed out that war is a racket and the Marines were essentially muscle for US corporations. Times have changed, of course; now those corporations are usually international corporations.


The US military has never defended its country from an attack it did not provoke.


US military deaths in these wars against civilian populations are essentially training accidents; in the last 5 or 6 years they number about half of their deaths in training that is called training. When they train by combat to war against civilians, they are not training to defend USA: they are training to make war against the civilian population of USA.
