Why Is Obama Selling Arms to a Dictatorship?
David Keyes, The New Republic
The justification for the arms sale is simple. The deal will provide at least 50,000 jobs to Americans - good PR at a time of great economic distress. More importantly, it is intended to counter the very real threat of Iran, a regional menace that has brutally repressed its own people and sponsored terrorism worldwide. But arming one theocratic dictator to stop another is not only bad policy, it is profoundly immoral.
