    WASHINGTON and DUBAI — Two powerful US senators have begun raising questions over why US fighter jet deals with Qatar and Kuwait have been delayed for two years — and placing blame for the delays on the Obama White House.

    Qatar’s request for the F-15E Strike Eagle and Kuwait’s request for the F-18E/F Super Hornet are two years old. According to a congressional source, the Defense Department and State Department both support the sales, while the White House has put on the brakes.

    Do you really think they would exit the deal and go with the french? Kuwait is very close with america, I don't think they would. Plus with the election coming up they will most likely wait.

    Maybe they are waiting for USA elections. But it is not the right way to blame someone without any reason. The only reason on my mind is elections because these elections also delay so many other deals as well.
