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is quoted as saying" I would'nt consider Egypt a foe or an Ally" Sebe is 100% correct of the U.S. selling/providing "outdated" weapons systems to our allies.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
