The Trump administration has agreed to sell arms worth 5 billion dollar to the kingdom of Bahrain.

The Obama administration had put restrictions on such deals due to the open human rights violations made by the government. The aerospace, defense, security and advanced technology manufacturers Lockheed has been given a contract to provide Bahrain with F-16 fighter jets without preconditions on improved human rights conditions in the kingdom.

A spokesperson of the F-16 program at the Lockheed has said they consider it inappropriate to comment on behalf of the US government and whoever they sell the weapons to. This agreement includes 19 F-16s, 23 engines, radar and other sophisticated missiles.

Talk about Führer Erdogan, he let 320,000 jihadists and mercenaries enter into Syria, and it’s the summer 2016 evaluation, so we’re surely largely over this!
Most of the death in Syria are due to HIS terrorists!

NB : If I remember well, the picture was taken in Rammstein AFB, during one of the biggest NATO drills ever.

Thus, as they don’t use aircraft to bomb their own citizens and as anyway, if US don’t sell weapons, don’t worry, others have industries too, it makes no change to the results and well, the worst massacre/genocide in the last 30 years was nearly only performed using machetes…
Strange choice to order so outdated gear as F-16 : usually, the only ones still ordering F-16 now are countries with low economy.
