US to sell weapons systems to Gulf in preperation for war, including F-35s

U.S. President Donald Trump on Tuesday said he would be willing to sell other countries in the Middle East the same weapons systems sold to Israel, noting the region’s wealth and saying it would be good for the United States and U.S. jobs.

“They’re very wealthy countries for the most part,” Trump told Fox News in an interview ahead of a signing ceremony at the White House for agreements normalizing relations between Israel, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain later on Tuesday..

He noted that the UAE wanted to buy some fighter jets, adding: “I personally would have not problem with it. Some people do, they say … maybe they go to war.”

In related news, the United Arab Emirates’ minister of state for foreign affairs, Anwar Gargash, said on Tuesday that his country’s decision to normalise ties with Israel has “broken the psychological barrier” and was “the way forward” for the region, creating more leverage.

He said Israel suspending its planned annexation of Palestinian land would stop the two-state solution being undermined. Gargash said a strategic breakthrough is needed but “it will not happen overnight”.
