    From needing Congressional approval to start a war, to getting motioned by Congress to stop a war and ignoring them.
    So much for the US Constitution, checks and balances, and other fluff like that.

    An overreach of US executive power.

    And many more attacks to come on Saudi soil. I can't see the House of Saud lasting much longer, even if MbS takes the throne.

    The Legio III Cyrenaica would destroy the modern Saudi army, in a matter of weeks, with swords and spears .

    Now this is hilarious. After much hypocritical hand-wringing, Canada sold Saudi Arabia a bunch of LAVs... only for them to fall into Yemen rebels' hands. To add insult to injury, the Saudis still owe Canada more than $1 billion for the LAVs.
