$60 billion-worth of arms—the largest such deal in U.S. history—are set to be sold to Saudi Arabia. The Obama administration appears to be on board with the proposed sale, which may come before Congress this week. Though the massive sale is attracting little media attention overall, it is giving pause to individual journalists across the political spectrum.

What a stupid move. Selling high tech weapons to the country that funds most of the Muslim Fundamentalism around the world. I wonder how long it will be before our own soldiers are facing our own weapons. We would be better off just putting these weapons into storage instead of selling them to our cultural, economic and religious enemy. Seriously stupid move.

You can thank the big oil bush's and republicans needing that sweet, sweet, oil money no matter what the cost for that one. They opened the door for Saudi Arabia and the muslim extremists to dig their fangs so deep in america there is no way to pull them out.

Well companies such as Boeing would certainly want the deal to go through, yet I believe most people in the US would have at least an reservation against the deal.
