    General human hypocrisy as a part of the human condition or what?

    The oligarchs that control the U.S. government, the media, and commerce, make billions of dollars from these arms sales. And the Saudis have a lot of money to spend. We are nation ruled by the greed of the wealthy, and that includes our presidents. All of them.

    Did you support Trump because he was openly praising his arms deal with the KSA?

    Yep. All the American moralizing about the virtues of democracy suddenly goes silent, if a country has oil or enough money to invest in US arms sales.

    I'd like to see us putting a trade embargo on Saudi Arabia until their human rights progress to at least an 18th century equivalent, but that's just me.

    I've not heard or read anyone on the left who thinks that hypocrisy is limited to the right.

    Why not criticize those on the other side equally.
