    Essentially, this is a qatar quick sweetner effort even though this was always in the pipeline along with other systems. However, the ruler crisis will do nothing to move or stop this sale as whoever remains or takes over Qatari reins will still inherit this deal going forward

    People are missing a point here. This is not just a purchase of hardware but also an attempt to pay off the Americans to ease off in the Qatar- saudi arabia conflict.

    that is a matter of opinion and frame of mind sowed by the saudi rulers. Saudis backed Saddam against Iran and at every point tried to muzzle them, the issue is definitely in Saudi mindset.

    My Jewish friend, US will provide protection for this purchase. With Russia it is purely an arms sale.

    If you calculate the profit margin of the F-15 manufacturer namely Boeing, you will see that the net profit is just nothing but a small figure that is hardly relevant. It may just cover the cost of sewage services for 3 US cities in one year. You may be surpriseed to know that the entire KSA GDP is only the same as the State of New Jersey's GDP (including all the oil revenues that KSA gets). This is how small and undeveloped econmies look like when you compare them to fully developed ones. You get the point.

    This purchase agreement directly contributes to the creation of 60,000 new jobs in 42 states in America

    upload_2017-6-15_15-37-52.jpeg

    This is the price of protection.. and not finished yet.. Qatar has asked for 72 F-15QA..which means another 36 are to follow.. the total was $21 billion..
