According to an article in the International Herald Tribune; the Bush administration is moving quickly to ok deals for foriegn partners on US weapon systems.  The Pentagon plays a role in organizing and having Congress approve these deals.  There has been a rash of equipment for Iraq and Afghanistan lately as well for former Soviet and Eastern Europe states.  This is seen as building good will with them, as well as counteracting other nation’s attempts to sell weapons.  The deals also help out US contractors.
