A “New Compact” with Saudi Arabia Is a Terrible Idea

“We have already seen in Yemen what indulging the Saudi government does to regional stability. The Saudi government has proven that selling them weapons for ‘self-defense’ has just enabled them to wage an unnecessary and atrocious war against their neighbor. Our government should stop providing them with the means to engage in more aggression in the future, not least because their use of U.S.-made weapons in their war crimes implicates the U.S. in those atrocities. The current truce in Yemen is holding, and that’s good news for the people of Yemen, but we should make sure that the U.S. is never again in a position where it is expected to support another Saudi war, whether it is in Yemen or anywhere else.” (06/21/22)
