I can't believe that no one thinks that 20 billion dollars in arms sent to the middle east is not a big deal. Wouldn't you think that being 5 minutes till 12 on the doomsday clock would instigate a general dissarmament of the world. I guess its going to take a brand new green glass parking lot for that.

It's a good idea if you want friendly US nations in the region to continue having control and influence in the Gulf, aka an indirect extension of US foreign policy. Not to mention countering Iran and it's puppet masters and boosting the revenues of our defense industry. Also we get to make sure that we are the main weapons supplier in the region and by virtue of that role we can better regulate/control who has what and who gets what.
