other suppliers, mainly from Arab countries
Yes, the U.S. supplies these Arab countries with weapons that are then shipped to Ukraine.
In return the U.S. gets what ?
..they did it with Iran and it destroyed their economy...
One difference between Iran and Russia though B.B.
Russia while it has oligarchs does not have much else.
I tend to disagree on that remark.
SWIFT is a "convenient and fast" financial transaction instrument, but it is by no means unique.
Russia and China have already created their own systems of financial transactions.
Russia's one, which is called SPFS, already has over 400 institutions, mostly banks, within its network.
Iran did not have that luxury as far as I know.
Bottom line for me personally.......
Tell me why the U.S. taxpayers should be paying for all of this "foreign aid" when it really is of no concern to the U.S.A. ?
