How To Defeat Iran: Sell More U.S. Arms To Allies

A more appropriate global security burden-sharing line has been a recurring U.S. theme.

Now, Saudi Arabia is poised to share more of the security burden by buying up to $60 billion worth of U.S. arms including new F-15s, upgraded F-15s, Apache attack helicopters, Blackhawks, and Little Birds.

On top of all that are discussions for a $30 billion upgrade to the Saudi navy as well as mo-better missile defense including THAAD and Patriot.

The counter-argument that no one is going to make is that this will lead to a regional arms race.  That’s because Iran is already in an arms race, and a nuclear one at that.
