You mean USA allies, let me remind you that the US supplied weapons to Iran and Iraq for oil not so far in the past, no to mention the sell of weaponry to Saudi Arabia and Egypt right now...Welcome to real-politics. Its not about whos right, its about who has cash.
The difference being that, we stopped playing the supply game after Saddam turned into mr. middle-east Hitler, when he launched the first gulf war........ or did we keep on slipping Iran stuff?

Not that it makes our record clean, but there's a difference.

Also, I dislike the selling of arms to Saudi Arabia and Egypt, I don't see how that's smart besides the cash

Yeah I suppose, that terrorist bombing that happened recently did not set well with them.

Not sure if all the bombers there are Egyptians.

But Egypt in general is a very peace-loving country, don't you agree?
