Through its arms sales and integration with the Saudi regime, Raytheon continues its major role in the destruction of Yemen. Paveway bombs, an intimate partnership with the Saudi Military, hundreds of personnel based in Saudi Arabia, establishing Raytheon Saudi Arabia in Riyadh – the Raytheon-Saudi collaboration is extensive. It sees working with the vicious regimes of the Middle East as an incredible economic opportunity. And the blood money rolls in to Raytheon’s coffers from the epic catastrophe that is Yemen today: starvation, deaths, disease, bombed hospitals, destroyed infrastructure. Raytheon is based right here in Waltham.
