Under the contract confirmed by officials on Wednesday, the Obama administration has okayed a deal that will put $29.4 billion worth of F-15 war planes in the air force arsenal of Saudi Arabia, not only a powerful American ally in the Middle East but also a next door neighbor to Iran. As a war between American and Iran becomes almost impossible to avoid, installing billions in weaponry on the other side of the Persian Gulf will aid in an eventual assault on the Arab nation.

Only one month ago, information was leaked that the US was sending advanced “bunker-buster” bombs to the United Arab Emirates. At the time White House press secretary Jay Carney told the media, “An Iran armed with nuclear weapons is an intolerable threat to regional and international security, and we remain determined to prevent that outcome.” As tensions worsen between the nations, the addition of the F-15s in Saudi Arabia seems all too expected.
