The Chinese are now boosting their own military presence in the Middle East by becoming a competing supplier of UCAV's and surveillance drones. The major suppliers in the region are USA, Russia, Turkey, Iran, and Israel. The Chinese got smart though and are dropping a factory to the biggest purchaser with the most money. The Chinese confrontations have now attacked our defense contracts, and we all know they will not stop there. The Chinese threat is real!

China to open first drone factory in Saudi Arabia

Saudi Arabia has granted permission for a Chinese firm to set up the Middle East's first drone factory, which will manufacture hunter-killer aerial drones.

The kingdom's key science and technology organization confirmed that the factory's setup was agreed during King Salman's visit to China this month.

According to IHS Jane's Defence Weekly, the King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology (KACST) signed a partnership agreement on March 16 with the China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation (CASC), which manufactures China's CH-4 unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV).

We begin bombing in five minutes.

Get real, every military contractor is trying to sell arms world wide.

God forbid, everyone jumps on the endless war bandwagon.

Hmmmm it sounds like because oil is running in Saudi Arabia, it decided to make a manufacturing economy.

In the other hand, this shows that the Saudis are sellouts. The sold out the US in the past multiple times and this is no different.

If the Saudi Kingdom starts to receive less and less of their defense from us, what will be their incentive to keep the petro dollar alive?? Actions like this are a very threat to our economic existence!
