    US signs deal to supply F-15 jets to Qatar after Trump terror claims

    The US has signed a $12bn deal to supply dozens of F-15 jets to Qatar, despite recent high-profile claims by President Donald Trump alleging Qatar’s “high-level funding” of terrorism.

    The signing of the deal on Wednesday is the latest twist in the highly contradictory US diplomacy over the crisis around Qatar – now in its second week – with the emirate targeted by a Saudi-led embargo.

    Hailed by Qatar, the deal underlines the reigning confusion inside the Trump administration as it handles one of its first big foreign policy crises, which was in large part triggered by Trump.

    Qatar is facing a severe economic and diplomatic boycott by Saudi Arabia and its regional allies, who cut ties last week accusing it of funding terrorist groups, a charge Doha denies.

    what I find funny is the Saudis have absolutely no room to talk considering they helped terrorist groups such as the Free Syrian Army so they need to face an Embargoment themselves.

    The Saudi's and their Wahabi brand of Islam are really the main issue in the middle east. They messed up Afghanistan too and are gaining more influence in non-Arab islamic countries.
