Wisdom in stockpiling?

In the Opinion page article "Egypt Faces Pressure From Islamic Neighbors," April 26, the author suggests that strategic cooperation with Egypt "might include the stockpiling of American military hardware in Egypt for use by either country in case of emergency."

The list of countries to which we have sold or given military equipment that has later been taken over by the opposition and used against a more liberal government - and/or against the United States - is too long to enumerate.

Are we still seriously considering such suggestions? Would stockpiling it be any safer? Doris F. Sutter, San Rafael, Calif.
