Did you know Italy makes missiles?
Yeah, luxury missiles.
Italy has halted the sale of thousands of missiles to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) due to their involvement in the Yemen conflict, making permanent an 18-month temporary suspension.
“Today I am announcing that the government has revoked the authorisations under way for the export of missiles and aircraft bombs to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates,” Italy’s Foreign Minister Luigi Di Maio said on Friday.
Frankly, the Arabs get most of their missiles from the United States.
If Italy wanted to actually stop these gross, murderous Saudis, they would stop selling them shoes.
A full blockade of Italian shoes would cause the entire social order of Saudi Arabia to collapse, basically overnight.
This whole “Yemen slaughter” thing has been getting a lot of bad publicity. Probably, this is going to be shifted, under Joe Biden, into some other direction.
