More Jaw-dropping US Hypocrisy!

The United States government has got its Middle East friends (Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Egypt etc) to blacklist their neighbour Qatar for allegedly supporting terrorist groups. Now, it is reported that same United States has signed a deal with that same Qatar to supply those “terrorist supporters” with $12 billion worth of F-15 fighter aircraft!

US signs deal to supply F-15 jets to Qatar after Trump terror claims

Wonder how many F-15s you get for $12 billion

Agreement comes after president accused emirate of ‘high-level funding’ of terrorism and amid Saudi-led embargo

The US has signed a $12 billion deal to supply dozens of F-15 jets to Qatar, despite recent high-profile claims by President Donald Trump alleging Qatar’s “high-level funding” of terrorism.

The signing of the deal on Wednesday is the latest twist in the highly contradictory US diplomacy over the crisis around Qatar – now in its second week – with the emirate targeted by a Saudi-led embargo.

Hailed by Qatar, the deal underlines the reigning confusion inside the Trump administration as it handles one of its first big foreign policy crises, which was in large part triggered by Trump.
