Currently the plan is to send 16 F16's and 200 Abrams Tanks to Egypt despite the anti-US rhetoric from Morsi the Current Egyption President. Am I missing somthing? or does this make no sense at all on many levels? Apparently it is more importaant to remain close allies with Eygpt as oppossed to Isreal. Very concerned...

It does seem very strange.

However sebe, your explanation makes sense.

Such is the results of the military-industrial complex which President Eisenhower warned about in his farewell address.

Don't forget, more troops and equipment are also headed to Africa.

My point being is this is not an arms sale, it is part of a "foreign aid" package. With the Middle East being so unstable I do not feel this is a responsible transaction. If you might recall from an earlier blog our Commander in Chief is quoted as saying" I would'nt consider Egypt a foe or an Ally" Sebe is 100% correct of the U.S. selling/providing "outdated" weapons systems to our allies. Keep in mind a lot of that was the 60 class armor platform. F16's and any version of the Abrams is a potent platform that could easily be turned toward Isreal or other allies. As far as I am concerned, Bad Buisness

“Greater Good”, a point or ideology that has been defined, perceived, twisted, etc. So what does this mean? Is it fair to even apply this concept as at the end of the day whatever the definition is construed; Man is still making that determination. So now here we are with ...

Crossroads
October 15, 2014
After pursing the “headlines” for the last couple of days it seems painfully apparent to me that our nation is at a perilous crossroad. We are mired in such discord that your average Dooms Day Prepper is doing jumping jacks saying “I told You So….” I try to do my ...

ISIS Endstate

Am I the only one that is concerned with the ineffective air campaign against ISIS? We seem to be going down the same road we did with Libya in regard to airstrikes that destabilize the region and disrupt the “enemy” but bring no semblance of peace and stability. Libya is ...
