Obama hands a Loaded Gun to Saudi Arabia!! Unbelievable!!

Please Read:

So, was Obama's trip to Hawaii merely for pleasure, or Business??

HONOLULU – The sale of $30 billion worth of F-15SA fighter jets to Saudi Arabia has been finalized, the Obama administration said Thursday, boosting the military strength of a key U.S. ally in the Middle East to help counter Iran.
Under the agreement, the U.S. will send Saudi Arabia 84 new fighter jets and upgrades for 70 more. Production of the aircraft, which will be manufactured by Boeing Co., will support 50,000 jobs and have a $3.5 billion annual economic impact in the U.S., the White House said.
The sale is part of a larger U.S. effort to realign its defense policies in the Persian Gulf to keep Iran in check. The announcement came as U.S. officials weighed a fresh threat from Tehran, which warned this week it could disrupt traffic through the Strait of Hormuz, a vital Persian Gulf oil transport route, if Washington levies new sanctions targeting Iran's crude exports.
Administration officials said the timing of Thursday's announcement was not tied to the new threat from Tehran. But they did make clear that the fighter jet sale would help Saudi Arabia counter potential troubles with Iran.
"This sale will send a strong message to countries in the region that the United States is committed to stability in the Gulf and broader Middle East," said U.S. Assistant Secretary of State Andrew Shapiro. "It will enhance Saudi Arabia's ability to deter and defend against external threats to its sovereignty."

The fighter jet sale is part of a larger 10-year, $60 billion arms deal with Saudi Arabia that also includes helicopters, a broad array of missiles, bombs and delivery systems, as well as radar warning systems and night-vision goggles. Congress gave the deal the go-ahead about a year ago.
The plan initially raised concerns from pro-Israeli lawmakers, but U.S. officials reassured Congress that Israel's military edge would not be undercut by the sale. Additionally, there is now broad agreement among Israel, the Gulf Arab states and the West that Iran poses a significant and unpredictable threat.
Saudi Arabia and Iran are bitter regional rivals. Tensions between them were further stoked earlier this year after the U.S. accused Iran of plotting to assassinate the Saudi ambassador to the U.S. in Washington.
Saudi Arabia is already the most militarily advanced of the Arab Gulf states, one of the richest countries in the world, and central to American policy in the Middle East. It is also vital to U.S. energy security, with Saudi Arabia ranking as the third-largest source of U.S. oil imports.
But relations between the U.S. and Saudi Arabia grew frosty earlier this year, as the allies found themselves at odds during the protests that swept through the Arab world. The Obama administration angered the Saudis by pulling support from former Egyptian leader Hosni Mubarak, a longtime ally of both countries. And the U.S. bristled when Saudi Arabia sent troops into Bahrain to quell protests there.
The White House announced the agreement with Saudi Arabia from Hawaii, where President Barack Obama is vacationing.

~OMG!!! Who else sees the red flags here?? Anyone?
----------------------------------------------------------
OMG!!! Are we soo Desperate for money now that we will provide missiles and bombs, jet fighters and helicopters to a country who does not trust the U.S. nor do they respect the Americans??

Persia is an Arab country who has enough riches to create their own array of DEADLY WEAPONS-so let them make their own.

Are we sooo Blinded by the money they are to pay that we will stoop at nothing and possibly cost us Everything??

I applaud leaders like Sitting Bull who would Not compromise to sell the peoples lands, because he did not see Greed and think only of himself, he saw that his generations to come who would Need the lands to survive!

Do we Prostitute our own country, our lively hood for the lousy temporary riches?

Do your eyes flash at the ring of Billions of Dollars?? $$$$$$$
B.S.!!! They can keep their dirty money. We have enough oil reserves right here in the U.S. And, if we run out, then so be it!!!

We find through our Creator new ways to survive. WE NEED TO BE MORE ENVIRONMENTALLY SAFE ANYWAY FOR THIS PLANET TO SURVIVE!!! But at least we can survive.
What's to say they don't decide to use all this deadly arsenal against us? Do our leaders see that? Or are they looking for a fraction of debt reduction to our nations debt? Screw the debt! Hell, Who Isn't in Debt?? And, debt's been there all these years, what happened to them reducing it? There's Got to be other alternatives than sacrificing our country! Unbelievable!!

To hand more weapons to an untrustworthy nation spells chaos on a whim!

God Help Us Foolish People For Our Damned GREED!!!
WHAT IS OBAMA'S MOTIVES PEOPLE????
What are our Leaders thinking??

Good grief! Would you hand over a loaded gun to a 5 year old child too???

Pray for our Nation, all of you. And Pray for our Leaders who have so obviously been blinded to this Rash decision. And Pray for the Leaders to come, that their hearts will be for the people and Not for their own agenda.

God Help Us All. Peace.

Normally, we try to stay out of the forums, but inflammatory (incorrect) information tends to catch our attention.

There are a couple of things we would like to comment on regarding the previous post:

1 ) Persia is not a country.

2 ) Persia is now identified as Iran.

3 ) Iran is not an ally of the U.S.

4 ) The article was about Saudi Arabia.

5 ) Saudi Arabia is one of the U.S.'s closest Arab allies.

6 ) As it states in the article 'Saudi Arabia and Iran are bitter rivals'.

7 ) The U.S. is selling weapons to Saudi Arabia NOT Iran.

8 ) There have been large weapons sales to Saudi Arabia under every U.S. presidency.

9 ) George Bush Jr. walked hand in hand with Saudi Crown Prince Abdullah showing how close our countries are with one another.

The point of this comment is not that we support nor oppose the arms sales referenced within the article posted.

We do have an opinion on it, but we feel that the forums are more for the members to express themselves than for the webmasters to steer things one way or the other.

We just wanted to correct the false information posted on the site (with regards to 'Persia' being mentioned...and we wanted to make sure that it is clear that what is taking place now is not specific to the current U.S. administration...but rather it reflects a history of arms negotiations with the Saudi's that goes back decades.

We like it when members post current events, and we understand that everyone has their own perspective...but please try to make sure you present correct information.

Thanks,
Cool
