The US Army Trained the Saudis to Protect Mecca

I am well aware that this is not going to be a pleasant article to read. Unfortunately truths are not always pleasant but sometimes they just cannot be ignored. This is one of those times. I hate to say it, but I have to say it. This is absolutely disgraceful. Not only are US politicians Saudi puppets, but so is the US Military. Isn’t protecting America supposed to be the main function of the US Army? Yet here they are empowering what is out to destroy life as we know it. Islam.

MOI-MAG advise and train in Saudi Arabia

(This is from 2019, but obviously still very relevant.)

RIYAHD, Saudi Arabia — U.S. Army Soldiers, headquartered at Redstone Arsenal but deployed to Saudi Arabia, have seen firsthand how complex the challenges of protecting millions of people and more than 350 critical infrastructure sites can be, especially during the Islamic religious holidays of Ramadan and Hajj.

In addition to the 30 million people already living in Saudi Arabia, every year millions of Muslim pilgrims arrive from countries all around the world to meet with friends and families and perform their rituals of prayer and discovery, as part of the five pillars of Islam.

In August officials in Saudi Arabia counted almost 2.5 million pilgrims that arrived by planes, trains, boats, cars, camels and buses to perform their Hajj pilgrimage to the Grand Mosque in Mecca, considered one of the world’s largest movements of humans.

They depart a short five days later, another mass movement that stresses the transportation and security systems of the country.

“Keeping all these people safe, while also protecting transportation hubs like sea ports, train stations, airports, bus stations and critical infrastructures like bridges, water desalination, electric power plants, oil refineries and pipelines, that is a challenge that falls heavily onto our partners at the Saudi Ministry of Interior and their security forces,” said Col. Matt Holbert, program manager at U.S. Army Security Assistance Command’s Military Assistance Group in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

Advising and training the Saudi Ministry of Interior’s security forces on defending their country from domestic terrorist threats and protecting critical infrastructure is where Holbert, an Army Reservist from South Carolina, and his small team of around a hundred personnel, also Army Reservists, fit in.

A subordinate unit to Army Materiel Command and USASAC, they are known as the Ministry of Interior – Military Assistance Group, or MOI-MAG.

MOI-MAG personnel provide security assistance training to include marksmanship, patrolling perimeters, setting up security checkpoints, vehicle searches at entry control point, rules of engagement toward possible threats and personnel screening.

As qualified Army instructors these officers and enlisted personnel also train the Saudi security forces in courses similar to standard Army courses to include the Army Basic Instructors’ Course, basic officers’ course, airborne training, flight training and military police training.

Apparently discriminating against non-Muslims doesn’t even begin to matter to the US Army.

So what is it that they actual stand for? Because it certainly isn’t America anymore.
