Bush seeks big boost in arms for Mideast allies
Deal aimed at countering Iran would include controversial sale to Saudis

Again, no need to post the full text of this insanity. Just a few quick quotes will do...

"The proposed package of advanced weapons for Saudi Arabia has also stoked concern in Israel and among its U.S. backers because it includes satellite-guided bombs"

and then this gem....

"Senior officials....told the New York Times they thought the Bush administration had resolved those concerns, partly by offering Israel more than $30 billion in military aid over the next 10 years"

"Administration officials are concerned that the package could draw opposition from Saudi critics in Congress"

"The comprehensive regional aid-and-weapons package is meant to compensate Israel for the sale of U.S. weapons to countries Israel considers potential enemies."

Ummm...so who exactly is dictating the dispersement of US Taxpayer money here?

And then the cherry on top..

"The official added that Washington wants Gulf states to stress to Sunnis that engaging in violence is “killing your future.”
