Are We Right in Giving the Saudis $100 Billion in Military Aid?

   Not chump change, the $100 billion arms deal President Trump is offering Saudi Arabia. One wonders why we are spending it. Are we just seeking the favor of the Saudis? If so, why? Or, do we suppose to end the war in Yemen by injecting money on one side of the conflict?
  One-hundred billion? Can we afford this? And, is increasing the militarization of Saudi Arabia what we want? Perhaps if it situates the Saudis to stand free from the more-radical countries over there, it might be worthy. But, I wonder. And, I wonder but what pouring more weapons into the region is liking tossing wood on a fire. Perhaps. Perhaps not. I do not know.
