There is a lot of yelling going on about the alleged actions of Saudi Arabia regarding a journalist they didn't like.
In 2017, the U.S. cleared $18 billion in new Saudi arms deals. Over the five years ending in 2017, nearly one-fifth of American weapons exports went to Saudi Arabia.
U.S. corporations make these weapons, and thousands of Americans get their annual wages from weapons sales.
Cutting off arms transfers would be a very big deal.
