Politicians on both side of the aisle say the United States wants to bring peace to the Middle East — and that has Jon Stewart wondering just why we’re sending so many weapons to the region.

On Tuesday night’s “Daily Show,” he pointed out that the U.S. is sending arms to Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Iraq, Oman, United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar and Israel.

“We’re like the Oprah of Middle East Weapons systems!” Stewart said. “You get some bombs! You get some bombs! Everybody get some bombs!”
