BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:35 A.M.) – US Senator for Kentucky Paul Rand railed against US weapons sales to Saudi Arabia at the Senate in Washington DC on Tuesday, saying he wouldn’t sell “them a rifle, much less precision-guided missiles”.
Rand called Saudi Arabia the “number one exporter of jihadist philosophy”, “the number one exporter of ‘Let’s hate America”.
Rand said that he, along with US Senator for Connecticut Chris Murphy, will put forward a bill to make future arms sales contingent on reining in Saudi military involvement in Yemen’s civil war. He called the famine in Yemen “of biblical proportions”, saying the situation “is being done without your permission, but with your weapons.”
