Posted on 01/31/2013 7:20:51 PM PST by Olog-hai
The U.S. Senate Thursday defeated an amendment that aimed to prevent the Obama administration from transferring F-16 fighter aircraft and Abrams tanks to an Egypt in disarray.
A vote to block the measure proposed by Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.)an amendment to the debt limit billpassed by a 7919 vote.
In a strong-worded floor statement Paul questioned the wisdom of providing the sophisticated weaponry at a time when many see Egypt descending into chaos.
I think this is particularly unwise since Egypt is currently governed by a religious zealot, a religious zealot who said recently that Jews were bloodsuckers and descendants of apes and pigs, he said. This doesnt sound like the kind of stable personality that we would be sending our most sophisticated weapons to.

79 votes to arm our avowed enemies (who, not incidentally, bomb Christian churches and beat up Christians in the streets). 79 votes!!! May God bless and save America
Exactly, and, the Egyptian army will need the stuff when they have to roll over the bloodthirsty muzzie mobs, and eventually, Morsi and his jihadist regime.
Take a look at the roll call vote and remind each of the numerous RINOs that voted for it that they WILL BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE!
Does anyone have roll-call?
I’m looking to see how Dan Coats (R-IN) voted.

Thank you Senators.
Egypt’s army will never go against Morsi.
Jeez Louise!! Mike Johanns was wrong AGAIN!!!
This guy hasn’t made a decent vote in the last 2 years. We have GOT to get rid of him!
or it could be Turkey again and the military will be the Brotherhood scum.
American and Israeli soldiers will die at some time in the future from these airplanes.
The politicians won’t give a damn.
And the Obama voters won’t give a damn.

I’m keeping score
The two latter groups will have to stand before God and answer for all of that. May not be soon enough to suit us, but when the time comes, we’ll see lots of sweat dripping off those multitudes . . .
There is no silver. Some don’t recognize Egypt as a threat, imagining taht the Muslim Brotherhood is moderate or some such. Others think that the aid is necessary to keep the Egyptian military on our side.
Which J school teaches the use of double negatives in headlines?
When it comes to Egypt & the Muslim Brotherhood, I’m a moderate.
Nuke the Aswan High Dam! Time for the world’s biggest ever toilet flush!
So, these are the Jewish Senators that turned their backs on Israel in favor of Egyptian Terrorists.
The “yes” GOP votes are?
Yep, figured my butt-boy Senators from TN, Lamar! and Corker, would vote with the enemy.
To #35: out of these Jewish senators, we have:
* one marxist, avowed socialist, but a RED - Sanders
* one liar, Vietnam vet fraud, Blumenthal
* one clown, Franken
* one fool who was used by the KGB in 1975 to welcome a KGB front delegation made up of top Soviet bloc communists and KGB agents of influence - Carl Levin, re World Peace Council tour, including getting the keys to Detroit
* one old fool - Lautenberg
* one stupid fool - Feinstein but slick on gun control
* one troll midget brain, Boxer (and crazy as a loon)
* veteran leftists (with repeats), Wyden, Sanders, Franken, Blumenthal, Levin, Boxer, Sanders
* One fool liberal - Ben Cardin (from my old hood)
* one new leftist fool - Schatz
As a Jew, I cannot be proud of any of them. Cardin should have known better. If his mother is still alive, she’s gonna beat his ass good on this vote. If his father is still alive, he’ll sentence him to life in jail (a former judge). (I think they have passed away but they were proud liberals who supported Israel as an ally and homeland for dispossed Jewsish refugees from around the world).
Ol Texas Cornyman running scared, knowin’ you are going to get primaried will change your WHOLE outlook on life and voting.
Good job Cruz....making us proud in Texas....keep hammering these a$$hats.
The rest of you YES voters nothing but “teaser” bulls all running around humping and humping the air with your tool sewed to the side of your belly, just getting tired.
Not the A+ bulls that are doing the real breeding in the pasture.
Bought time to turn the “non-producers” into jerky or hamburger meat.
