    Yes, but they end of getting their hands on some our weapons anyway. That's the point.

    I don't think anyone is speaking differently on the legality of it right now, only that it should be prohibited because of reasons already stated.

    You have to trust your allies. Spy on them a little. If they are shifting weapons to the bad guys, liberate the Saudi people from the Royal family.

    The Saudis are very 'westernized', much to the chagrin of the extremist Mullahs. I believe that their weaponry will stay with them as a protection against the extremist.
