house Bill H.R. 643

Should U.S. Military Aid and Arms Sales to Saudi Arabia Be Cut Off?

Argument in favor

Jamal Khashoggi’s murder in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul violated international norms, human rights, and international law. The Saudi government needs to be punished for this transgression — and ending U.S. military aid and arms sales will hit them where it hurts.

Without a doubt, I fully support HR643 cutting off all military support and aid to the terroristic country of Saudi Arabia. Sorry Trump, find another retirement program.

Jamal Khashoggi’s murder in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul violated international norms, human rights, and international law. The Saudi government needs to be punished for this transgression and the people they’ve arrested & tried are just fall guys for the Prince & his henchme who were responsible — and ending U.S. military aid and arms sales will hit them where it hurts.

For sure! I have a hard time buying off on all the money spending on foreign “terrorists” in Iran when the last deadly action by foreign agents on US soil was primarily composed of SAUDI ARABIANS and essentially it went unpunished. Not to mention that poor journalist killed by SAUDI ARABIA. Again with no repercussions. It is past time that Washington realizes or takes action on the knowledge that Saudi Arabia is not our friend they’re not even our ally. They are just a blood sucking regime that takes our money and weapons and the proceeds to use us to conduct their genocides. It is way past time to end that toxic relationship. We have NO high ground to preach from as long as we support SA.

Argument opposed

The Saudi government has already arrested multiple people in connection with Khashoggi’s death, and is prosecuting them to the fullest extent of the law. It doesn’t make sense to hold U.S. and Saudi national security interests hostage to a single incident, no matter how horrific.

We need Saudi Arabia to counter Iran and its proxies around the globe. It’s not a perfect relationship but it’s better than the alternative. #MAGA

    Saudi Arabia supplied most of the terrorists that attacked us on 9/11. They murdered an American affiliated journalist. They are committing war crimes in Yemen. Continuing to supply them with military weapons and aid further underscores our moral failure as a nation.

    When people start talking about cutting off aid to Saudi Arabia they let their love of money in oil outweigh their judgment of what’s right and what’s wrong. The Saudi‘s are murdering animals. They’ve held their people down for years, women just now got the right to drive a car. Can you even imagine that. There are nation that lives in the 1300s. The trumps have deep ties financially with them that’s why you see Jared Kushner over there kissing up as much as he possibly can. It’s time to cut ties with these animals and do what’s right. Did anybody forget that not long ago they murdered a journalist!

    We should not be arming Israel nor Saudi Arabia for their genocidal killing sprees. We must be better than constant murder.

    The actions of the Saudi regime are reprehensible and inexcusable. We should in no way support the goals of that administration.

    Especially after OUR BOMBS, LAST AUGUST (corrected the date) HIT AND KILLED A BUS LOADED WITH CHILDREN - 40, TO BE EXACT - IN YEMEN! We should be so proud. Right, you righteous Christians? Whatever Piggy wants. You sure see that Piggy gets. Their deaths are on YOU. KEEP UP THE BAD WORK! God will, surely, reward you for that. These days, hell’s reservations are filling up fast! P.S. ( I’m sure there’ve been many more atrocities committed since then!)

    Saudi Arabia is one of the most oppressive authoritarian regimes on Earth that violates human rights on a daily basis and is committing war crimes in Yemen. This is all in addition to the brutal murder of Jamal Khashoggi. They shouldn’t be even close to being an ally of ours. It’s ridiculous that Congress is just waking up to this now, but of course the corrupting influence of their oil is a huge incentive to keep them close.

    Selling arms to a country like Saudi Arabia, who represses its people and tortures and kills their enemies, is horrible and immoral. It seems the only reason we do it is to enrich those in the arms business and to protect oil interests. We seem to have traded our morals for money, which is a sad commentary about us.

    This is a no brainer. How can we call other countries terrorists and not call these people what they are murderers! I don’t know what number 45 is getting from the Saudi prince but whatever it is it is not worth it and all of the GOP senators need to get on board with stopping arms sales. The fact that the majority of GOP senators still support this man boggles my mind. Remember it is not about the economy at this point. It is about the lying and cheating and loss of respect for our country worldwide.

    Killing an American journalist should have cut them off immediately. US allies because of Trump should be held to high ethical and legal standards and should lose full funding for fascist acts like killing journalists
