Russian helps Iran go nuke (Obama) buys Russian Choppers rather than American made helicopters
Fox News ^ | 8/12/10 | AP

Russia's nuclear agency says that it will fuel Iran's first nuclear power plant, the Bushehr Plant, next weekend, defying U.S. calls to hold off until the Ahmadinejad regime proves it's not developing nuclear weapons — at the same time the Obama administration plans to buy 21 Russian-made choppers for use in Afghanistan, rather than buy American-made.

But what if the Russian helicopters are cheaper? And what if we can save lots of money by having out subs and ICBMs made in Red China? We can save SO MUCH MONEY!

Sometimes CHEAPER isn’t always better ... . Knowing Obama’s mindset they are probably CRAP and we are paying a premium for them. Obama is nrich and he wants to bankrupt us asap.

Actual title:

Russia Says It Will Begin Fueling Iran's First Nuclear Plant Next Week

Where did you get the title you used?
Russian helps Iran

That implies one guy, one Russian. Surely you didn't just MAKE IT UP?

Bo, I didn’t make it up!

It was on the Fox News home page with that title. I did insert (Obama) in the title but other than that it is the title. It’s still here http://www.foxnews.com/ Clicking on the article on the home page will send you to the longer article at

In this case the Russian helicopters can do something necessary that current American models can’t.

Geez, just for the “hearts and minds” aspect it is a lame decision. How will the Afghanis feel about Russian choppers in the sky again? Will Charlie Wilson please pick up the red phone.

We also need to take meaningfully heavy military loads high into the afghan mountains to fight the enemy where they are.

Current American helicopters simply don’t have the high altitude lift capability do that.

Should we just cede the high ground to the taliban?

Do you really believe Obama CARES?

I know you know better than that.

It is an amusing thought, though.

Obama is determined to lose in Afganistan. If he insults others along the way, so much the better!

Russia Helps Iran, We Buy Their Choppers?

That is the original title at http://www.foxnews.com/

When you click on the link for the whole story the title changes to:

Russian nuclear agency says Iran’s first nuclear plant will start getting fuel next week

It’s disgusting!
