Jet deal with Saudi Arabia

Just read in the news today about a major arms deal with Saudi Arabia. The £4 billion order will secure British Aerospace Jobs and that of course is good news but... why are we supplying a regime with one of the worst human rights records in the world. A country enslaved by the house of Saud who keep their citizens under control with fear, torture and death? A country where woman have no say and are treated as second class citizens. At the moment they are allies of the west of course but let's not forget so was Saddam hussein's Iraq at one time, when it was convenient.

How shameful that we have these successive Governments who preach to us one thing while doing another, bit like the Saudi Royals actually! We hear all about the phoney war on terror all the time which gives them the excuse to take more of our freedoms and then they are back slapping about supplying this regime with high tech killing machines. When will the human race ever wake up?
