President Biden: End U.S. Support for Oil Dictators

President Biden:  End U.S. Support for Oil Dictators

Oil dictators like the rulers of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates are driving up gas prices in order to profit from the Russian dictator's invasion of Ukraine. President Biden must stop selling weapons to the very oil monarchies that are helping to drive our climate crisis while also waging a brutal war of their own in Yemen.

Why is this important?

From Russia to Saudi Arabia, oil dictators are helping to turn our planet into a giant war zone and climate disaster. But even as the Biden administration works to stop Putin's invasion of Ukraine, the U.S. also arms and protects every single oil monarchy across the Middle East.

Saudi Arabia's monarchy has been America's top weapons customer. Meanwhile, the dictatorships of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates have led a brutal war of starvation and bombardment in Yemen.

To make matters worse, the Saudi and UAE rulers are literally refusing to take President Biden's phone call. Meanwhile, global gas prices could drive a worldwide recession while these dictators and Western oil companies make a hefty profit.

It is time for the U.S. to stop investing in oil dictators who are helping to drive a global climate crisis. President Biden must stop supporting the brutal oil monarchies of Saudi Arabia, the UAE, and every other U.S.-backed autocrat across the Middle East.
