    Israel is trying to prevent the signing of multimillion-dollar contract between the U.S. and Saudi Arabia for the supply of the latest military technology.

    The deal includes the purchase of Saudi Arabia in the U.S. , dozens of new F-15 and upgrading 150 fighter jets F-15s, who are already in service caudovskih Air Force , the newspaper Ha'aretz.

    In the past month Israel has introduced Americans to a number of reservations on a grand bargain . On them will be discussed on Tuesday in Washington at a meeting of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu with President Obama.

    Two weeks ago in Washington, Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak has raised this issue in meetings with U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates and National Security Advisor Jim Jones .

    Saudi Arabia is planning to reach an agreement with the United States on the purchase of artillery systems worth $186 million, Arabian website Elaf said citing a high-ranking source in the Saudi government.

    Last month the parties agreed on the details of the upcoming deal, according to which Washington would supply 36 155-mm guns and 54 105-mm guns, the source said.

    In October 2010, U.S. President Barack Obama announced the largest arms exports contract in the history of the country. The United States will supply various types of weapons to Saudi Arabia worth $60 billion. The orders include 84 new F-15 fighter jets and a contract to upgrade 70 F-15s already in service with the Saudi air force. Washington will also deliver 70 Apache helicopters, 72 Black Hawk helicopters, 36 Little Birds and 12 MD-530F helicopters, and a wide range of rockets, bombs and other equipment.

    It is the main reason why the Americans (over) reacted to the Iraqi invasion of Kuwaite. They were worried that Saddam might just keep rolling and go for Saudi Arabia as well and dominate the oil supply in the middle east.

    You hear Saudi Royal Family and you think they are a royal dynasty with a history as long as the Middle East, but all the so called royal families in the whole middle east were created in the 1920s when France and Britain were putting lines on maps to redivide the areas now that they had pinched all the German bits from around the world.

    The Saudi Royal family owes its existence to the west because the west created them. They created them so they didn't need so many troops in country to keep order. Colonial rule 101... pick a low class and make them kings and they will be loyal to you and happily oppress those who used to oppress them without encouragement.

    During the Iran Iraq war in the 80's, these A-raabs would get drafted or volunteer for the Iraqi army. These pussy ass cowards came from all over the A-raab world. From as far away as Morocco!

    The first sign of trouble and these bastards would throw down their weapons and surrender en mass! Iran captured several hundred thousand A-raabs during that long war.

    I remember a documentary once being aired on IRNA about the fate of these bastards........the reporter asked one of em standing in a line of thousands of them that where was he from and why was he in the war, and he said that he got recruited from Egypt for a job and instead of working in Baghdad as a fukkin cheese pumper, instead got sent to the front. Very Happy ......and that was the predicament of hundreds of his colleagues standing in the POW line behind him during one of Iran's massive meat grinder offensives into Basra.

    I swear Garry......had that bastard Saddam not used mustard and nerve gas like it was goin outta style.....Iran would have busted all these motherfukking A-raab cowards a new fun-hole! Wink

    Back then, mustard & nerve gas was supplied to these A-raabs by their masters sitting in London & Washington, it was kosher then to attack Iran with chemical weapons.......seems like nothing has changed. The only thing that has changed now is that whoever starts a new war, Iran will end it.

    I remember the US State department objecting to the illegal use of chemical weapons... till they realised it was the Iraqis using it and not the Persians... and then they shut up till 1991 and Saddam became the bad guy and then they whined and whined about him gassing his own people.

    Of course the people he mostly gassed were Kurds, so they were hardly "his" people.

    Garry the Kurds got the least of the chemical weapons. It was the Iranian troops who bore the brunt of the Blood, mustard and nerve agents, for a decade.

    No body said shit then. The United states and Saudi Arabia facilitated the transfer and precursors to Iraq to produce these chemical weapons.

    Doesn't surprise me in the least.

    But when the west brought up Saddams evil deeds they mentioned some village in Iraq where "5000" Iraqis were killed. Can't remember the name of the village off the top of my head, but it was a town full of Kurds who were rising up against Saddams rule.

    It was actually quite hilarious later on because after 11/9 and while there was a no fly zone over northern Iraq many bushites were jumping up and down about links with Al Quada and Saddam. There was only one small problem because the links were to Northern Iraq under the western no fly zone where Saddam had lost control and all the links were to Kurdish separatists that the US wanted to use for the invasion.
    Obviously once that was clear the Kurds dropped their Al quada buddies like Turds and jumped into bed with the US against Saddam because they thought they might get their own state out of it. Kurdistan should have had north Iraq, a big piece of Iran, and a huge piece of Syria and even a piece of Turkey.

    The US would be happy about Iran and Syria losing chunks, but not so of Turkey and Iraq. The US dealings with the Kurds... which the Turks see as terrorists, was the main reason that Turkey didn't get involved in the post 11/9 invasion of Iraq.
    And of course Iraq doesn't want to give up all its oilfields in northern Iraq to a bunch of Sand Arabs (Kurds).

    What a mess the European colonial powers created in that region and they continue to stir the pot in Syria and Iran.

    U.S. inks $29.4 bln F-15 deal with Saudi Arabia

    RIA Novosti

    22:36 29/12/2011
    In-Depth Coverage

    WASHINGTON, December 29 (RIA Novosti) - The U.S. has concluded a $29.4 billion deal with Saudi Arabia to supply 84 new F-15 fighter jets and upgrade 70 other F-15s already in service with the Saudi air force, White House Principal Deputy Press Secretary Joshua Earnest said.

    Manufactured by Boeing, the F-15SA is “the most sophisticated and capable aircraft in the world," he said.

    “The United States and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia have signed a government-to-government agreement under the Foreign Military Sales program to provide advanced F-15SA combat aircraft to the Royal Saudi Air Force,” the spokesman said.

    “Valued at $29.4 billion, this agreement includes the modernization of 70 existing aircraft as well as munitions, spare parts, training, maintenance and logistics,” he added.

    I bet every time the reporters on CNN talk about the economic recession and double dip recession etc etc the Saudi princes pull out a US $100 note and light it with a nearby candle and then use the burning note to light up a very expensive Cuban Cigar.

    Saudi Arabia - USA relationship

    Post  As Sa'iqa on Wed Oct 23, 2013 2:54 am

    http://www.jpost.com/Middle-East/Sau...ia-Iran-329423
    DOHA - Saudi Arabia's intelligence chief has said the kingdom will make a "major shift" in relations with the United States in protest at its perceived inaction over the Syria war and its overtures to Iran, a source close to Saudi policy said on Tuesday.
    Prince Bandar bin Sultan told European diplomats that Washington had failed to act effectively on the Syria crisis and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, was growing closer to Tehran, and had failed to back Saudi support for Bahrain when it crushed an anti-government revolt in 2011, the source said.
    Saudi Arabia, the world's biggest oil exporter, ploughs much of its earnings back into US assets. Most of the Saudi central bank's net foreign assets of $690 billion are thought to be denominated in dollars, much of them in US Treasury bonds."All options are on the table now, and for sure there will be some impact," the Saudi source said.
    He said there would be no further coordination with the United States over the war in Syria, where the Saudis have armed and financed rebel groups fighting Assad.
    In Bahrain, home of the US Fifth Fleet, a simmering pro-democracy revolt by its Shi'ite majority has prompted calls by some in Washington for US ships to base elsewhere.

    Western policymakers say Bahrain's hosting of a US naval base makes it a key ally in keeping open the Strait of Hormuz, conduit for 40 percent of the world's sea-borne oil exports.

    ^^ I agree with this...

    Unfortunately, I don't think that the US-Saudi marriage will end anytime soon, and the Wahhabi terrorist sponsors will still be a menace to the world for quite some time.

    Let's not forget that the Saudis already tried to flex their muscles vis-a-vis the Americans in the 70s; when they raised the oil prices. Didn't last long - their whole aristocracy is dependent on US military power.

    Don't forget that only a small fraction of US oil imports come from the ME.

    And a significant portion of Saudi oil goes to Asia.

    China and India would be happy to get more oil.

    or maybe Arabs should start building their own cars and electronics instead of relying on exports of non renewable resources...?

    US is discussing a massive new arms sales package to Saudi Arabia of around $100-$150 billion (Dh367.8-Dh551.7 billion), in an attempt to reassure the Saudis.
