Germany sells 200 tanks (Leopard 2) to Saudi Arabia. To support oppression? It’s absurd,

tanks are a symbol of oppression. actually vs. the Arab youth revolution. people try to force their administrations to change to more democracy. the answer: oppression: tanks, guns, etc. – as seen in Tunisia and Libya, Yemen and Bahrain, Egypt and Syria. the government of Bahrain asked Saudi Arabia for support. They sent military and nothing changed in Bahrain. Now Germany sells 200 tanks (Leopard 2) to Saudi Arabia. to support oppression? it’s absurd, because – on the other hand – they had some welcome slogans to the Arab youth revolution.
