WASHINGTON (AP) - The Bush administration will notify Congress on Monday of its intent to sell $20 billion in weapons, including precision-guided bombs, to Saudi Arabia, moving up the announcement to coincide with the president's arrival in Riyadh, The Associated Press has learned.
Selling arms while on a "peace" mission seems odd to me. I will never understand the way REAL gub'ment works.

Well, we'd need a definition of "peace".

I'm sure its, "Us and our allies in charge."


Interesting thing about those guided bombs is that they're satellite guided and computer controlled... sounds hackable.
