A test of the Walt and Mearsheimer hypothesis

If the sales go through, I’d like to see the response of the AIPAC. It’s not like we can depend on Israel to deter Iran. Of course, I’ve heard chatter of a (temporary, of course) alliance between the Israelis and the Saudis against the Iranians. I doubt that would fly either. I think having more allies in the middle east is a good thing, and if weapons sales to countries concerned about Iran makes more allies for the US, good for us.
