(Reuters) - The Pentagon said on Monday it expects to notify Congress about an arms deal to Saudi Arabia within "the next week or so," but declined to comment on details of the proposed package.
I have 2 comments to make here:
1) Our technology is the best in the entire world, and other nations still flock to the United States to buy our weapons, which are superior to anything that any other nation puts out. If we can do this for weapons of war, then we should be able to do it in other sectors, such as green energy. All it takes is a little will power and American ingenuity. We have the ingenuity, we just need the will.
2) Selling 60 billion dollars of weapons to Muslims? Yes, and Bush sold weapons to Muslims, and so did Clinton, and so did Bush Sr., and so did Reagan. Evidently, our leaders don't see Islam as the threat that some of the extremists in our country are telling us it is. Could it be that our leaders, past and present, know something that the extremists here don't know? I believe so.
