This is on the shoulders of the manufacturers as well.
They, themselves, should protest. They could stop the physical transfer of the materials from their property, but I’m not holding my breath.
Everyday, our Government gives us a new reason to question their competency.
....clearly, our Congress is bought and sold.
Maybe they should just add an EXTRA circuit to these tanks and fighters that might ACCIDENTALLY cause the electronics to fuse into a smoking lump at the most inopportune time.
Follow the money. The US is not buying anymore tanks right now. Without this contract to send tanks to Egypt, the Abrams Tank Plant in Lima (OH) would virtually shut down. As well as all of their suppliers. If the Lima tank plant and all of their suppliers went out of business then the US would loose this industrial base. Maybe forever. It would be very, very expensive to rebuild it. And don’t forget, Egypt will buy tanks even if they have to buy Russian tanks.
