U.S. To Sell $60 Billion In Arms To Saudi Arabia

The Saudi Air Force flies F-15 warplanes over the capital Riyadh.

I can’t help wondering what Israel thinks about this arrangement?

“The Obama administration announced Wednesday it plans to sell up to $60 billion worth of fighter jets and helicopters to Saudi Arabia, in one of the largest-ever single U.S. arms deals.

The State Department and Pentagon informed lawmakers that the sales over the next 15 to 20 years will include 84 new F-15 fighter jets, 70 Apache attack helicopters, 72 Black Hawk helicopters and a wide array of missiles, bombs, launchers and equipment such as night vision goggles and radar warning systems.”
