Default US Sells $60 Billion worth of Weapons to Saudi Arabia

Well, with our nation's debt growing, similar to a bank, if every country that has stock in us (bonds) pulls their money out, we're bankrupt. So how can we stop a country like Saudi Arabia from pulling all their money out of our country? We'll sell them weapons, of course!!!

BBC News - US confirms $60bn plan to sell Saudi Arabia arms

Now I'm not saying this kind of attitude could lead to World War III, I'm just saying it will. Why is the Israeli-Palestinian conflict still going on you may ask? The US. Why was the Iran-Iraq war started you may ask? The US. Where did Sadam Hussein get the weapons to attack Iran with, i.e. mustard gas? The US. Who do I think could be partially behind the newest conflict between North and South Korea? Who else? This is not conspiracy theory for anyone reading, btw, it's merely fact-based opinion. For the US to stay out of debt to other countries, certain actions have to be taken, and well....we're taking them.

Is it really that big of a surprise? It's quite lucrative. You sell a bunch of goodies to the bad guys, then you sell a bunch of goodies to the good guys to hunt them down.

Double profit for the military-industrial complex.

Not a big surprise at all, it's just going to keep happening it seems, and by the amount of media coverage it's getting, no one really notices or cares. Like I said, every day it feels like we're getting closer to a "1984" type society...
