This must be the second bill I have seen this week about selling military grade weaponry to a foreign country. Are we arming our potential enemies now? Or worse, putting our military technology into the hands of a country that may not necessarily keep these machines of war safely under control so they don’t fall into the wrong hands? Sorry, but as long as Donald Trump is at the helm, along with his war-mongering side-kick Bolton, (as well as Mitch McConnell, who seems to be stuffing his pockets full these days with lobbyists’ cash), I don’t think we should be selling our sophisticated weaponry to foreign countries right now. Trump is just interested in taking money from the highest bidder, whether the sale of these items is dangerous or not. And where does this money go once these deals are arranged? Though we hear a lot about spending, spending, spending, and how we common Americans need to tighten our belts as social and educational programs are trimmed to the bone (while handing the rich billions and billions of dollars in tax breaks) we never hear about where the income to our government with these questionable sales goes. Does it go directly to the manufacturers? If so, why is our government the one cutting deals with these countries? What is the benefit to our country and its citizens if such a deal were to be negotiated? Without transparency, and specifically why we are selling our military technology to these countries, and how does it benefit the US and all its citizens, then the vote should be “No.”. And if it is a deal that Trump, Bolton or Kushner had a hand in negotiating, then there should be no vote at all until the deal is thoroughly investigated to the nth degree.
