Obama & The Merchants of Death

On this edition of The Geopolitical Report, we look at Barack Obama’s legacy as a record breaking arms dealer. Obama has enabled Saudi Arabia to wage an illegal war in Yemen and has gifted the merchants of death with billions of dollars in new contracts with Taiwan and Vietnam. We also cover the Nye Commission and its investigation into the munitions industry after the First World War. Finally, we look at how the new Trump administration has promised to radically expand the US military and make the merchants of death billions more in profit from war and death.

    Hello Kurt,

    Thanks for a good report above…

    I would like to suggest an important topic for your next or future report.

    The next biggest threat in the world is not ISIS or Al Qa’ada…. It is Muslim Brotherhood, and here is why.

    1- Muslim Brotherhood is a radical and terrorist organization. They are radical because they don’t accept others (Christians, Jews, any other flavor of Islam are considered infidels that should be dealt with) and their terrorist activities are currently taking place in north Syria and Sinai Egypt.

    2- Muslim Brotherhood members were about 200,000 around 1935. They grew to 2 million by the 1950. They are brilliant at deceiving people, which makes the average Muslim person join their crazy camp easily, as they don’t say we will kill others, but they will do it silently. I would love to know the size of their membership today!

    3- They are global, and they hold key positions in many walks of life. Wiki Muslim Brotherhood and you will be surprised with the global coverage they have.. you will also noticed they are in all the “terror” area’s of the world.

    4- They have strong presence in the UK and USA, and their objective is to create an Islamic Caliphate that spans the whole planet (that includes your home town Mr. Nimmo.)

    p.s. Normal Islam follows the book “Qura’an”, and in the book it clearly says that infidels are only the people who don’t believe in God! (so atheists or Romans would be an example). It also clearly says that Muslims, Christians, and Jews all have the same God and we call them the “people of the scripture”.

    Thanks Kurt for a great report, It is nice to see you have so much more room for honest reporting here on News Bud.

  3. Michal Rymes says:

    Great information, thanks Kurt, looking forward for more.

  4. Great report, Kurt.
    VoiceOfArabi, you do know that the CIA has been working hand-in-glove with the Muslim Brotherhood for quite some time now, I presume? Not all that differently from the way they work with Fethullah Gulen and Hizmet…

  5. Great report, Kurt. Thank you. Heartbreaking situation in Yemen.
