BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:45 P.M.) – U.S. Secretary of Defense James Mattis met with Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman in Washington, today, as the Saudi royal completes his three week long U.S. visit.

According to a Fox News report, Mattis told the Crown Prince about his objections to the Senate resolution that called on the U.S. to halt military support to Saudi Arabia.

Mattis believes that halting military support to Saudi Arabia will jeopardize their counter-terrorism cooperation and embolden Iran to amplify their support to the Houthi forces.

When asked about civilian casualties in Yemen, the U.S. Defense Secretary told a reporter that Saudi Arabia is part of the solution to the crisis and that they are actively working to end the war.

“We believe that Saudi Arabia is part of the solution,” Mattis stated.

“They have stood by the United Nations-recognized government, and we are going to end this war. That is the bottom line. And we are going to end it on positive terms for the people of Yemen but also security for the nations in the peninsula,” he continued.

Mattis allegedly thanked the Saudi Crown Prince for his nation’s humanitarian role in the Yemen War, despite the fact that half the country is under a land, air, and sea siege by the Saudi Coalition.

“Your significant amounts of humanitarian aid is critical to help the innocent caught up in this conflict (and) we applaud you for that,” Mattis concluded.

Clown prince meets the crown prince. He praises Saudi Arabia for their “humanitarian role in the yemen war”; Surely no amount of class A drugs could f**k your perception of reality up to be able to come out with a statement like this ? He needs locking up !

Obama got rid of all those womanizing, drug affected, corrupt and totally incompetent heterosexual commanders when he was in office, and now we’re left with just the best of the best to lead the US’s new LGBTQueer samurai army. And thanks to the US’s LGBTQueer new world order, we no longer have to rely on our own conscience’s to make moral decisions. Now we have famous celebrities that teach us right from wrong, leaving the rest of us much more time, to do the things we either want to do, or have to do, thanks LGBTQueer NWO. I think James… Read more »

Despite volumes of evidence to the contrary where the Saudis, with one of the highest GDP per capita, is causing a humanitarian crisis and health epidemics in one of the poorest countries in the world??? And people forget the Houthi are a large part of the native population of Yemen whereas the Saudis and their allies are invaders. Then you have an American representative of what is supposedly an American democracy representing in Ronald Reagan’s words, ‘…a shining city on a hill…”. using “newspeak” to butter up these retrograde Saudis and to afford them UN protection??? How would the Americans… Read more »
