More Arms For the Saudis

Is it just me, or is anybody else out there tired of propping up Bush's buddies the Saudis?

They're tyrants, they support anti-Western extremists like al Qaeda, and they hate Israel. Frankly, it seems to me, in my relative ignorance, like we'd be better off making nice with Iran. There the populace seems ready to liberalize, and if we started treating them civilly they might just overthrow the theocrats.

Incidentally: if we'd have listened to Jimmy Carter, who was right about so many things, and worked toward energy independence, we wouldn't even be discussing this kind of thing. Stop me if you've heard this one before...
