Arms Sales Make The War Go Round.

Plato said that all wars were fought for money. The U.S. is selling arms, and fuel to both Arabs, and Israelis. No wonder Bush refuses to try to negotiate a diplomatic settlement to the conflict. The Bush family profits off of wars, any wars. That is also the reason the Illegal quagmire in Iraq, seems like it will never end. Bush lied soldiers died, and The Bush cartel got rich.

US planning $4.6bn in Mideast arms sales

Excerpt:
washington • The Bush administration spelled out plans yesterday to sell $4.6bn of arms to moderate Arab states, including battle tanks worth as much as $2.9bn to protect critical Saudi infrastructure.

The announcement came two weeks after the administration said it would sell Israel its latest supply of JP-8 aviation fuel valued at up to $210m to help Israeli warplanes “keep peace and security in the region.”

The United States also rushed a delivery of precision-guided bombs requested by Israel after launching its airstrikes against Hizbollah fighters in Lebanon 17 days ago, The New York Times reported last week.

In the newly proposed sales to Arab states, UH-60M Black Hawk helicopter gunships worth up to $808m would go to the United Arab Emirates, while AH-64 Apache helicopters worth as much as $400m would go to Saudi Arabia.

Bahrain would also get Black Hawk helicopters, valued at up to $252m. Jordan would get a potential $156m in upgrades to 1,000 of its M113A1 armored personnel carriers.
