Syriana (george clooney) US weapons deal with saudi arabia?
in syriana, saudi arabia seemingly was forced to buy second grade weapons from the usa for sky high prices in order for the president of the usa to lower unemployment in the states through jobs in the military. the exact quote is:your president calls my father and says, "I've got unemployment in Texas, Kansas, Washington State". One phone call later we're stealing out of our social
programmes to buy overprices airplanes. We owed the Americans - but we've repaid that debt. I accepted a Chinese bid - the highest bid. And suddenly I'm a terrorist.''
This is way too perfect a macth to the ongoing situation in which the obama administration is announcing 'record arm sales',
the saudis are buying rubbish equipment and planes without long range missiles and outdated techonology for 60 billion?? at a time of usa unemployment AND senate primaries around the corner?? all in the name of 'war against iran'' i think this stinkss of conspiracy.
not conspiracy per se, but this is wrong, stealing money from one country just to fund youre own. what do you all think, am i overreacting and reading too much into it.???
