Ever hear of the Carlyle Group? It is a private investment bank which owns many defense contractors, subsidiaries and construction firms. Many well known Americans of the Reagan, G.H.W. Bush and George W. Bush administration are partners and/or employees. Many rich Arabs, particularly Saudis are also partners. There was quite a rush to buy-out the Bin Laden family after 9-11. Yes, the Bush family and friends make big money off of wars and arms sales. Israelis should not be shocked that the partners of the Carlisle Group enrich themselves several ways by selling American arms to Arab nations. Now America is in deep financial trouble, and Israel will just have to put up with America selling arms to anyone it can for a while. We have already pissed China off with a big arms sale to Taiwan. This isn't a matter of foreign policy, it's about MONEY. And that is what makes the world of the wealthy go around. Besides, we need the foreign trade. . .
