The defense industry’s ‘Islam problem’ and the allegiance question

According to Byron Callan, an analyst with research firm Capital Alpha Partners, “President Trump may prove offensive to Islamic states and those countries could seek alternative sources of weapons systems.”

Another defense industry lobbyist was quoted as saying that “anti-Muslim rhetoric absolutely does not help when you’re trying to sell to the Middle East.”


There are no allies to be had among Islamic states.

    “President Trump may prove offensive to Islamic states and those countries could seek alternative sources of weapons systems.”
    He says that like its a bad thing, Obutthole has been the greatest gun salesman in history, to Americans who are trying to protect themselves from the divisive racist agenda, to the pisslamist in the ME he is selling more weapons than anyone in history I bet.

    • Heck, they just intercepted 2 Hellfire missiles on a flight to Portland from Lebanon.

        Is there a refundable 10 cent deposit on missiles?

    It’s as though the umma were monolithic. There will be sales under Trump where it is in our defense interests to do so.

    If the Saudis or Kuwaitis buy American military hardware, they’ll have no choice but to continue sourcing spare parts for that hardware from The States. It’s not as though MIGs and F18s are compatible.

    • Saudi has already made significant buys from Russia. Even they will run out of money eventually.

        Especially once they’re paying $100 a barrel for water.

    kinda hard to find replacements for those patriot batteries, isn’t it? And all those planes need parts and spares. Maybe the EU will sell some.
