Recent reports that U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, warn India that its military ties with Israel, and the last weapons transactions between the parties come at the expense of future transactions with the United States, should be heard in Jerusalem.
International security researchers claim that
will soon become, if not already the largest supplier of arms to the Indian
did not enter into a vacuum in .
Every new deal that Israel performs with the Indian army someone else conduct one
less transaction, that someone is mainly the United States, hence U.S.
Secretary of State warning. India
Of course this does not mean that
Israel should stop selling weapons to India, must continue to sell and
even to more new markets. But
needs to consider one thing. The Israel had passed the stage
where it can produce weapons and don't sell it to other countries. Modern production of weapons is
a process so expensive that even the enormous size of the United States military is
not enough to repay the costs invested in development. So every time that the United States is losing a
potential buyer of weapons to Israel or any other country, it will sell the
lacking to other countries, countries that have a lot of money and until now the
United States refrained from selling them weapons so crucial. Unfortunately for U.S. Israel these countries are particularly rich
Arab countries, with emphasis on Saudi Arabia
and smaller Gulf states and perhaps even . Egypt
So if in the coming years there will be an increase in
arms sales to Arab countries, we should not be surprised, we must accept it
with understanding and even preparation for a scenario this weapons leak to
hostile hands. To sell weapons? Yes,
but with an eye open on impact. U.S.
