Re: Saudi Arabia expands military:

Saudia currently has AWACS, F-15s and F-16's in their Airforce. They are adding 72 Eurofighter Typhoons and 24 blackhawk helicopters and want to raise there current troop level from 150,000 to 187,000.

This is not a gigantic jump in force level. Why would they not up defense levels with Iran flexing their muscles. The biggest problem for Iran is if they attacked Saudia and struck either Mecca or Madina the entire Muslim would would unite against Iran.

I don't have any problem with it. I was merely presenting it as more evidence of the coming conflagration that will eventually consume the entire middle east.

I dont think it will. If Desert Storm, Iraqi freedom, The Iran Iraq war, and the numerous Israeli vs whomever conflicts over the last 50+ years has not consumed the entire middle east I dont know what will.


This new Israeli conflict will be over in matter of a week or so and in a year be all forgotten

Maybe it will help, price gouging is probably going to be a problem still *cough BP's 30% profit last quarter cough*
