US with billion dollars arms sale to Saudi Arabia
The Obama administration has just approved a $1.75 billion sale of Patriot missiles and associated items to Saudi Arabia to bolster the air defenses of what they call the key US ally in the Arab world.

The Defense Security Cooperation Agency announced Wednesday that the State Department had approved the transfer, which includes 202 Patriot missiles, test targets, launchers, spare parts and other military equipment.

It said the sale would improve the security of Saudi Arabia, a nation it said has been an important force for political stability and economic progress in the Mideast.

In a statement, the agency noted the move would not change the military balance in the region, where US policy has long been for Israel to have a qualitative edge.
