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is quoted as saying" I would'nt consider Egypt a foe or an Ally" Sebe is 100% correct of the U.S. selling/providing "outdated" weapons systems to our allies.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

Great question; none of them but I guess I don’t get off that easy... To be candid however I really don’t know and that is very scary by itself. All of the candidates are either old guard or too far left or right to make me feel confident that the ...

I attempt to not do a whole lot of cutting and pasting but I feel it is important to get the complete jist… With that said I continue to be frustrated with an administration that apologizes for activities that most developed nations perpetrate. The whole saving face thing is hollow ...

Rioting Protacol

Well my Blogger Brethren; another “tidbit” to ponder… The “Oath Keepers” have come up with the solution to the Ferguson situation. They are advocating the protesters to also have guns so the Police will respect them and think twice before considers using deadly force. I have always been an avid ...
