Peak Stupid is Sadly Years Away

Sometimes I shudder at the idiocy I read.

This writer is worried that America's recently announced arms sales to Saudi Arabia are destabilizing:

But the mammoth deal is likely to further embolden Saudi Arabia in its devastating war in Yemen, analysts say, even as it retools a strategic alliance that places the United States squarely on the side of Saudi Arabia in its sectarian and regional rivalry with Iran.

Iran's campaign to expand influence by supporting violence isn't destabilizing, apparently.

No, Saudi resistance to Iran's attempt to dominate or at least set the region ablaze is the destabilizing factor.

Yes, "stability" would apparently be better served by just retreating before Iran's efforts and surrendering to their ambitions.

God save us from such analysis.
