Why? Because the right wing is lobbying hard for deals like this and the Democratic controlled Congress is busy as hell foolishly pandering to the right to appear "non-partisan".

They will need their bases and this equipment if and when they attack Iran - also has the useful spin-off of deflecting anger towards the Saudis if it were to happen and they could soak up a lot of the backlash.

What in my post makes you think I have any support for wars or any of the other bullshit coming out of our current Congress? I'd be happy if we cut war spending and foreign policy spending by 90%. And Israel, more than anybody, should get ZERO!

The dems in congress aren't doing anything that is against their respective natures. You just don't understand politicians -- it's all posturing. Their guy (Obama) made some tactical moves in "the war on terror" that were, amazingly, even dumber that Bush's, and they are supporting the lunacy because they can't deal with the thought of looking worse than the republicans in regard to handling this war -- and let's face it, the Bush administration's handling of it was a low bar to begin with. "Pandering" isn't really the issue, as much as it is "posturing." The republicans seem likely to win the house and senate in this election, so the posturing does, fortunately, have a time limit.

You may be shocked by what I'm about to say...

I pretty much agree with all of this.

Maybe it's time to give the Republicans another chance to show everyone that these policies don't work (as passed by either party), since we still don't seem to have learned that lesson. Then maybe we'll have a Liberal equivalent of the Tea Party that can actually make some of the promised "change" we voted for and foolishly expected.
