*The past weeks have seen a dramatic shift in mainstream attitudes toward
our relationship with Saudi Arabia. The grisly killing of Jamal Khashoggi
is reverberating throughout power circles in the U.S. and has shaken the
very basis of a consensus around the U.S.-Saudi alliance*.

For the first time U.S. weapons sales, particularly by Raytheon, are being
seriously questioned as the rage around Khashoggi has opened the door to
unprecedented questioning of the U.S.-Saudi war in Yemen. Now is the time
for us to seize the moment and turn the present tumult against U.S.-Saudi
collaboration in attacking Yemen, in tearing up the Iran nuclear deal, and
in promoting devastating sanctions and even war with Iran. In short, we
need take advantage of this opening — as long as it exists — to breakup
Trump’s love affair with the Saudis and with Raytheon and the other
companies that thrive on war. Who knows, we may even be able to do
something that helps the people of Yemen!
