The US has sold some toys to the friendly masters of Saudi Arabia. What will the Saudis do with this new weaponry: let it rust.

US state department spokesman Sean McCormack said that both the Saudi and Israeli governments had been consulted and Washington was ensuring Israel retained a “qualitative military edge”.

Does anyone else find this a little bit more than just humorous?
