This past summer, you helped us attain victory when Obama announced the U.S. would stop selling cluster bombs to Saudi Arabia. Now let’s take it a step further. Since that time, the Obama administration has approved billions of dollars worth of weapons to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. These weapons have been used by the Saudis to commit atrocious war crimes in the Middle East. Urge President Obama to end ALL weapons sales to Saudi Arabia by signing our petition to the White House below.
We, the undersigned, call on President Obama and his administration to end ALL weapon sales to Saudi Arabia. Under the Obama administration, the U.S. has brokered the sale of an unprecedented $115 Billion worth of weapons to Saudi Arabia. These weapons have then been used to commit war crimes, or have been sold to rebel groups, including ISIS and other radical, fundamentalist Islamic militants. The U.S. must end ALL weapons sales to the Saudis in order to end our complicity with the horrific deaths of thousands of innocent civilians in Yemen, and the spread and arming of radical Islam.
Over 80% of the population needs humanitarian assistance. 2.75 million people in Yemen are now displaced.
The UN recently stated that most civilian deaths have been the result of Saudi Arabia-led coalition airstrikes. Over 10,000 civilians have been killed.
All sides have abused human rights, including the Houthi armed group. However, only the Saudi Arabia coalition has the ability to drop bombs and launch airstrikes from the air.
The U.S. must stop supplying Saudi Arabia with F-15s and other munitions it has been using to ruthlessly victimize the Yemeni people. We call on President Obama to ban all sales of weapons to Saudi Arabia immediately.
