British manufactured cluster bombs have been used in Yemen by Saudi Arabia, Michael Fallon admits

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/michael-fallon-confirms-british-made-cluster-bombs-have-been-used-by-saudis-in-yemen-conflict-a7485106.html?cmpid=facebook-post

The British knew the Saudis were going to use daisy cutters in the Yemeni spring, the Saudi used it in the proxy Imperial War on Yemen (Obama's another stealth war) and when it became too obvious that the sanctioned famished Yemenis were the target with missing lives and limbs the UK went to the confession priest. Teflon, not a slap on the wrist that would amount to nothing other than a war crime added to the endless crimes against humanity unpaid for to this day.

Then they come with the great humanitarians moaning song.

What's your point, Sidi? It's pretty clear you hate everyone here, as you've been saying for years. So you still hate us? Okay fuck off, caveman.

As is, meaningless in the absence of meaning.
Why do you think the UK is enabling Wahabi-Saudi Arabia (Daesh)?

I don't know. You apparently do know. You tell us why.

The point here is why an Imperial country supplied cluster bombs to a savage regime?

"

According to the Campaign Against Arms Trade, the UK has sold more than £3.3 billion worth of arms to the Saudi government (18 months) since the bombing campaign in Yemen began in March 2015.

The campaign's spokesman, Andrew Smith, said: "The humanitarian situation in Yemen is dire and getting even worse. Innocent people are dying every day.

"The UK Government's response has been to continue supporting the Saudi forces that are dropping the bombs, and to sell them even more weapons".

Asked whether Britain would review its arms sales in light of the deaths, a Downing Street spokesman said Saudi Arabia was a "close and important ally for Britain".

I thought you were going to tell us why. Instead you regurgitated some old news.

I don't have the answer. Thought you did. Disappointed again.
