The Dutch parliament has voted to ban arms exports to Saudi Arabia in protest against the kingdom’s humanitarian and rights violations. It sees the Netherlands become the first EU country to put in practice a motion by the European Parliament in February urging a bloc-wide Saudi arms embargo.

This seems so very logical, why doesn’t the United a Stated follow suit? Oh, that’s right… Money. Fu*k human rights.
