US Sending 20 F-16s to Egypt
Breitbart ^

Posted on 12/10/2012 7:12:37 PM PST by chessplayer

Let’s say a would-be Egyptian dictator tosses the head of the military, supports a terrorist assault on Israel, and threatens to send tanks into the streets to fight any opposition. Let’s also say you’re the President of the United States. Would you: (a) threaten to cut off aid; (b) actually cut off aid; (c) send 20 F-16s to Egypt?

If you’re Barack Obama, your clear answer is C. Beginning January 22, the first portions of America’s $1 billion foreign aid grant to Egypt hits the ground in Cairo – four F-16 jets. The last time the United States greenlit aid to Egypt was 2010, when deposed authoritarian Hosni Mubarak was in power. House Committee on Foreign Affairs Chair Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL) said, “The Obama administration wants to simply throw money at an Egyptian government that the president cannot even clearly state is an ally of the United States.

But with Sequestration coming, the F-16 Falcons will only be refueled as far as Italy.

Geeze. I shouldn’t be surprised, yet somehow I am. I guess anything the Brotherhood wants, the Brotherhood gets. Their only mistake is in thinking so small. I’m sure if they asked for some nukes, the Obama Administration would be glad to help. After all, Obama wants to disarm us, so that fits right in with that goal.

And, of course, the MSM would sit on the sidelines and cheer.

After Morsi establishes the “United Islamic Republic” along with Syria and Libya, those F-16s known as the “Obama Wing” will do a flyover at the founding ceremonies.

The US is basically AT WAR with Israel, albeit thru a proxy.

It’s as clear as day.

I recently watched Schindler’s List, and a lump came to my throat with the clear realization it’s happening again... and by my “home” country no less...

Do you mean to say jets can actually make it from Italy to Egypt? Probably not to Libya though.

Whats-his-name has obama over a barrel, and obama knows it. All he has to do is say to obama,,,”you see this peace treaty with Israel in my left hand and a match in my right hand? Give me what I demand or I torch the treaty.”

When I first glanced at your post I thought it said “...foreign affairs are way above Obama’s gay parade.”

The eyes are fading but the mind is still sharp!

Correct, in so far as it goes. However...

1. Americans are armed, Jews in the Third Reich were not.
2. American Jews were originators of collectivism via communism and socialism in Europe.
3. In America, Jews were both generals and troops in the advance of communism through the schools and agencies, the goonions, media, Hollyweird, ad nausseam.

When American blacks, La Raza nutters, Muslims and other assorted sordid treasonous do start widespreasd violence, I suspect history will repeat itself and the cry “Kill the Jews” will start in the black ghettos of the Big Sh*tty areas.

If there is a G*d, those who did so much damage to America because they willfully confused the Mosaic call for a just society with the commie cry for “Social Justice” may have much to justify.

I hear rumors the Upper Office has little patience with rationalizations.

Let’s stop arming our potential enemies. I don’t care what these newbie no-diplomatic experience President and Secretary of State say. Their current track record sucks. You would not put money on them in a harmless football game. Billions are at stake, now.

Figures. We make the best battle tank in the world and then give it to anyone who wants it.

They would never make it back from their first sortie against the Israelis.

Unless they are piloted by Americans.
With Obama on the throne that’s not too far fetched.

There are lots of USAF F-16’s available from the deactivated Sqn’s here in the US. Might as well put them to use somewhere.

I’m sure if they asked for some nukes

I was thinking he might offer some of ours to Iran, just so they wouldn’t all go to waste. Just because we are going nuke free doesn’t mean others should have to....

Egypt receives the greatest foreign aid of any foreign nation other than Israel. They have a substantial air force - why do they need more to handle the unarmed protestors? Strange?

They're making noise about going to war with Israel. They tend to run out of airplanes when they do that.

**** it. Give ‘em nukes. Give ‘em the whole arsenal. Save us all the time and the death by a thousand cuts. Give the Muzzies nukes and stand back......that is what this administration wants, and since they rule by E.O., issue one and get it over with.

Mubarak was holding down the muslim brotherhood in Egypt at least as far back as the early 1990s.

Getting rid of Mubarak allowed the revolution to happen.

The revolution is the design of globalists who seek to moderate religion in general and control population growth and resources, taking over countries one by one and putting a globalist puppet governments in power (like they have in the U.S.).

Morsi is too radical for the globalists, they will continue to work on getting him to play ball or get out no matter how long it takes.

Little by little they are indoctrinating the population of Egypt, they are patient even if it takes decades. Globalists have the U.S. military at their disposal since they have much of the U.S. government at their disposal. IMHO, they are spitting in the wind, but globalists are arrogant.

"I guess anything the Brotherhood wants, the Brotherhood gets."

Why should anyone be surprised rhg81? Hilary's closest aid, Huma Abedin, worked for the Muslim Brotherhood (Institute for Muslim Minority Affairs - see Frontpagemag)) until she joined Hilary in 2003 or 2004. Her parents are both part of senior leadership of Muslim Brotherhood.

Obama’s admission to Harvard was obtained with the assistance of Percy Sutton, esteemed borough President of Manhattan, attorney for Malcolm X, Louis Farrakhan, The Muslim Brotherhood, who described being contacted by Khalid al-Mansour for help in getting Barry into Harvard in a very public video interview. Most didn't know that al-Mansour, formerly Don Warden, a 1970’s Boalt Hall (UC Berkeley Law School) graduate, became, beginning with his alliance with Alwaleed bin-Talal in the late 70’s, one of the most powerful legal channels of the Saudi Royal Family, securing funding for Wahhabbi Mosques in the US, defending OPEC, and a mentor to Barry, probably beginning with Occidental College days.

Obama is indebted to the Saudis. There are many in our CIA who believe that Saudi (The Muslim Brotherhood is a Saudi-funded organization) control is the path to resolving our problems insuring the continuation of oil shipments from the Middle East. One of those is Obama’s closest intelligence aid, John Brennan, an “Arabist” of the first rank, whose security firm, according Condeleezza Rice, “cauterized” Barack’s state department passport files. Brennan was proposed, but rejected, for the position of Director of National Intelligence. All these people, including Abedin, Susan Rice, Samantha Power, Brennan, Obama, and dozens of others, have long discussed a repartition of Israel, by force if necessary, perhaps using UN or NATO forces, which would guarantee the objective long sought by the Muslim Brotherhood of eliminating the state of Israel.

Actually the tanks themselves are made in Egypt under US license - what they are getting is the specialized armor and other key parts from the US. These are then assembled onto the Egyptian made M1A1 chassis.

Thanks! I thought the Egyptians had a factory but wasn't sure.

I noticed M60's on the streets. Not many bolts on one of those that I haven't taken out. ;)
