Obama Offers Gulf States “Ironclad” Security At Camp David Tea Summit

The U.S. agreement/treaty/whatchamacallit with Iran won’t leave the 6 Gulf States as vulnerable as they fear. At least that’s what the Duffer In Chief told them yesterday at Camp David’s tea summit.

To alleviate their fears, it seems that turning the event into an Arms Fair trumps negotiations and diplomacy.

In its first five years in office, the Obama administration entered into formal agreements to transfer over $64 billion in arms and defense services to Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) member states, with about three-quarters of that total going to Saudi Arabia. And new offers worth nearly $15 billion have been made to Riyadh in 2014 and 2015. Items on offer to GCC states have included fighter aircraft, attack helicopters, radar planes, refueling aircraft, air-to-air missiles, armored vehicles, artillery, small arms and ammunition, cluster bombs, and missile defense systems.
