i'll put this here as a general middle east thread i guess

When deployed soldiers die, their ops base cuts off communication in and out temporarily so that families don't find out about their loved one's death over social media. When they make contact with the family, they re-open communications so everyone else can call their terrified families and let them know they weren't among the dead.


IMAGINE having to live through that while your loved one is deployed AND THEN that human piece of chalk has the gall to declare victory while you're terrified that you're going to get that call telling you your solider is among the dead.

Hodeidah, Yemen (CNN) – Saudi Arabia and its coalition partners have transferred American-made weapons to al Qaeda-linked fighters, hardline Salafi militias, and other factions waging war in Yemen, in violation of their agreements with the United States, a CNN investigation has found.

The weapons have also made their way into the hands of Iranian-backed rebels battling the coalition for control of the country, exposing some of America's sensitive military technology to Tehran and potentially endangering the lives of US troops in other conflict zones.

Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, its main partner in the war, have used the US-manufactured weapons as a form of currency to buy the loyalties of militias or tribes, bolster chosen armed actors, and influence the complex political landscape, according to local commanders on the ground and analysts who spoke to CNN.

By handing off this military equipment to third parties, the Saudi-led coalition is breaking the terms of its arms sales with the US, according to the Department of Defense. After CNN presented its findings, a US defense official confirmed there was an ongoing investigation into the issue.
