t r u t h o u t | Arming the Saudis
This seem completely insane to me. Am I missing something?
Yeah you missed the other thread on this the other day?
I don't think we should do it, but for the first time I can recall the righties agree with me.
Because Obama is doing it, actually completing the process that Bush started.
I did, uscitizen. What forum, please?
Umm I forget.
That's 60 Billion with a B. 6o million wouldn't buy shit, that wouldn't buy a single F-15E and they are supposedly buying 84 new F-15 fighters and three types of helicopters: 72 Black Hawks, 70 Apaches and 36 Little Birds.
If we don't sell to them, Russia will fill that order with the crap they produce. They won't be getting anything that we can't knock out of the sky very easily. One F-22 would destroy a gaggle of F-15s.
Umm I think only 20 some billion go to Saudi Arabia. The rest to other countries in the region.
Why arm any Middle Eastern nation?
Maybe, with a little luck, they will kill each other.
yeah, god forbid this SALE goes through
we wouldnt want these companies to actually need to HIRE anyone, now would we
That's actually about the only good thing I can think of regarding this sale, DiveCon.
