Saudis Bribe US to Protect Monarchy


A political analyst says Saudi Arabia is the biggest buyer of weapons from the US because the survival of the fragile dictatorship relies on US protection. This comes as the US in coming months is to sell military aircraft and training worth 6.7 billion dollars to Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia in 2011 was America’s biggest arms buyer and over the past decade or so has purchased around 100 billion dollars’ worth of weapons from the West. Press TV has interviewed Mr. Ali al-Ahmad, Director of IGA, Washington about this issue.
