Iraq wants US fighter jets

"Iraq has quietly started negotiations to buy U.S. fighter jets and air-defense systems worth billions of dollars, a purchase Washington hopes will help counter Iranian influences and cement long-term ties with Baghdad after American troops pull out."

I read yesterday about a possible German deal to sell Saudi Arabia a bunch of tanks. I didn't even know Germany still makes tanks. I saw on fb today something in German that I didn't understand, but I gathered the deal is off. I wonder why.

You wonder why ?

Germany has a law forbidding export of arms into special countries - those in a dangerous region or those with a certain lack of human rights.

Maybe these tanks would have entered Bahrein if they would be available.

And yes, it's the same Germany that sold weapons to Saddam

It's shameful how the traitors in Iraq are buying weapons from the U.S. with the purpose of being a U.S. asset.

Strange that 15 million mentally challenged people live in the same place. Those fools in Iraq have dedicated their lives to advancing Uncle Sam's cause.

These Shiites are mistaken if they think they can get away with it.
