Can’t say we’ve done any better. Saudi’s are an intelligent oppressive kingdom. They have convinced the West they are “peaceful”.
I guess supporting holy war, oppressing religious freedom, sending jihadists to Iraq and preaching anti-western hatred throughout the kingdom doesn’t apply.
BAE Systems, Europe’s largest defence company, has won a £4.4 billion contract to supply Eurofighters to Saudi Arabia, despite failing to agree terms for a reciprocal investment in the kingdom.
The contract for 72 Typhoons is one of the largest defence export orders to have been won by a British company and will be worth an estimated £20 billion over the lifetime of the aircraft.
