U.S. ignores the UN small arms treaty they signed and are selling arms to rogue nations

Remember back in 2013 when the U.S. signed onto the United National Small Arms Treaty parameters, which restricted the selling of arms to rogue and aggressive nations?  Well, like nearly all treaties the government has signed since its inception, enforcement and integrity tied to their signature lasts about as long as it takes a corporation or political party to want to profit from breaking that treaty.
So it should come as no surprise that the U.S. Department of Defense just signed a deal where they would sell $11 billion worth of arms to Saudi Arabia, which is enlisted in an illegal war against their neighboring country of Yemen.
