Stockpile Those Windshields!

The US is no longer going to make F14 spare parts ( while this isn't normally noteworthy, apparently the main consumer is Iran. Why were we allowing military sales to a member of the Axis of Evil? Do we sell replacement Hummer transmissions to North Korea?

Really, selling military equipment to anyone outside of switzerland (neutral & good chocolate!), canada (so cute with their "eh" and "aboot"), and maybe England (they're on a pretty good streak with us since 1812 or so) seems like a pretty shortsighted move. Especially with America's history of foreign governments to support (hussein, pinochet, ortega, the shah, etc.).
