Saudi Arabia US Weapons Sales


The next time someone whispers in your ear about the “Jewish lobby”, remember this story, for no doubt, because possibly this mega deal, as well as other deals in the past went against Israel’s best interests, will go through through nonetheless. This is very bad news for Israel if it goes through, as well as for the West. We don’t need the Mohammedan pouring over all the technical wonders the West has to offer. KGS

WASHINGTON (AFP) – In the largest US arms deal ever, the administration of US President Barack Obama is ready to notify Congress of plans to offer advanced aircraft to Saudi Arabia worth up to 60 billion dollars, The Wall Street Journal reported Monday.
The newspaper said the administration was also in talks with the kingdom about potential naval and missile-defense upgrades that could be worth tens of billions of dollars more.
The administration sees the sale as part of a broader policy aimed at shoring up Arab allies against Iran, the report said.
The 60 billion dollars in fighter jets and helicopters is the top-line amount requested by the Saudis, even though the kingdom is likely to commit initially to buying only about half that amount, the paper said.
In its notification to Congress, expected to be submitted this week or next, the administration will authorize the Saudis to buy as many as 84 new F-15 fighters, upgrade 70 more, and purchase three types of helicopters — 70 Apaches, 72 Black Hawks and 36 Little Birds, The Journal noted, citing unnamed officials.

  1. The United States has never refused an arms purchase request from Saudi Arabia. This historical winning streak dates back to several Presidents and Congresses of both parties.

  2. I agree TINSC, and any president making such a deal, pimping for it, will receive the exact same criticism from the TT.

  3. Our good 'friends and allies' those wonderful Saudis' practically own DC with their lobbing groups, I wonder how many in the political class and this administration were wined, dined, and pocket lined.

  4. Saudis are the most corrupt, lazy, good-for-nothing, fat pigs in the world. It is unlikely they will put their lives at risk if they had to confront a thoroughly riled IAF.

    So this hardware is going to be used for airshows and such. The most important aspect of this purchase is the leverage it buys in America.

  5. They're corrupt all right, that's why TINSC has always stated that "the US has the best government money can buy".
