From Reuters:

The Bush administration is preparing a package of arms sales to Saudi Arabia and other Gulf states that could be worth some $20 billion over the next 10 years, a senior U.S. defense official said on Saturday.

From the NY Times:

Now, Bush administration officials are voicing increasing anger at what they say has been Saudi Arabia’s counterproductive role in the Iraq war. They say that beyond regarding Mr. Maliki as an Iranian agent, the Saudis have offered financial support to Sunni groups in Iraq. Of an estimated 60 to 80 foreign fighters who enter Iraq each month, American military and intelligence officials say that nearly half are coming from Saudi Arabia and that the Saudis have not done enough to stem the flow.

    Congress will go for it in a flash. It’s got profit-sharing written all over it. Especially when it’s coupled to the $32 Billion guns and ammo gift to Israel.
    Get the mops: There’ll be drool all over the Senate floor.

  4. Now Tengrain, a war doesn’t support itself? It’s like a garden. You have to bomb the shit out of it, commit a few atrocities and fertilize liberally.

    And Jimmy, man did you nail it. Fuck.

  5. Holyt shit, people…fuck, I just swore…if you don’t like swearing, forget that you just read both fuck and shit–well, all fucks and shits, including these last two.

    I never would have suspected that Joseph Heller would have been a literal prophet in Catch-22. George is now Milo Minderbinder, funding both sides of the war and making a killing doing it.

    Jesus on toast.

    During the 80’s, Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush armed and funded Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that Bush 2 would follow their lead.

    Hopefully with the “internets” people will begin to wake up and smell the bloodshed.

  8. BAC: Even with the media licking W’s ass, the people want out of Iraq. About 70% last time I looked. You can only wrap up a box of shit with pretty paper for so long. Eventually folks figure it out. And they have. Now we just need the democrats to grow a collective pair (balls or ovaries, I don’t care, just something).
