You’re kidding me. It takes years for our government to agree to ship an orange squeezer to another country, but they can get F-16s to Egypt this fast? Something is rotten in Denmark.

Rewarding the Muslim Brotherhood for a job well done...and who exactly is threatening Egypt nowadays? Is there any question that the high tech weapons are meant to be used against Israel? At what point will one reporter force people who voted for this to answer why?

Clueless senators.

"Egypt’s top general warned that the state was in danger of collapse as a result of the violence in three Suez Canal cities, Port Said, Suez and Ismailia. They are now under a one-month state of emergency, which gives the president and the police extraordinary powers and suspends ordinary judicial process as well as most civil rights." NYT

Egypt has never been at war or in conflict with any of these nations except Israel. Why are we sending them F-16s??????

"Mind the Republic Senators who approved this: Boozman, Coats, Cornyn, Crapo, Cruz, Fischer, Grassley, Heller, Lee, Moran, Risch, Roberts, Rubio, Scott, Sessions, Shelby, Thune, and Vitter."

How do all these guys justify approval?

Cruz?

Rubio?

hopefully we have an embeded virus in the avionics that will crash them.

but we have a POS SOS who dealt with the enemy during vietnam and a possible POS SOD who dealt with the enemy in central america.

i used to thing the campy book series WINGMAN was never possible. now parts of it, like a traitorous regime, are coming true each day.

I wonder what Obama will say when those planes are used to take out civilians protesting their oppressive government?

They were eventually gonna reach 240 F-16’s -— that’s a lot of firepower - I forgot how many M-1’s.

The measure (NOTto sell F16s), was co-sponsored by Mike Lee (R-UT), failed by a vote of 79-19. Seventeen additional Republicans supported it: John Boozman (R-AR), Daniel Coats (R-IN), John Cornyn (R-TX), Mike Crapo (R-ID), Ted Cruz (R-TX), Deb Fischer (R-NE), Chuck Grassley (R-IA), Dean Heller (R-NV), Jerry Moran (R-KS), James E. Risch (R-ID), Pat Roberts (R-KS), Marco Rubio (R-FL), Tim Scott (R-SC), Jeff Sessions (R-AL), Richard C. Shelby (R-AL), John Thune (R-SD), and David Vitter (R-LA). Paul then introduced the measure as a separate bill and Senator James Inhofe (R-OK) introduced similar legislation, but drew a distinction between the Egyptian government and military. Inhofe said, “We need to continue to support the Egyptian military, which Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood have currently distanced themselves from…Egypt’s military is our friend — Morsi is our enemy.”

I went to flight school back in the late 80's with the Skies of Islam crowd. We really do not have much to fear in regards to dominating the skies. The Israelis are as good or better than Americans as pilots.

That and software safeguards........like an "off switch".

Think about who and what Islam is. Their governing class comes to power by force and violence. The governing class then engages in brutal abuse of it's people to hold onto power. Every time the people become unhappy, they launch a campaine on jews and america to distract from the real enemy.

An orderly transition in change of governing class does not come from votes, it comes thru civil war. The outgoing governing are then murdered.

Repeat....

F-16's don't really change much. In fact I would argue they are less a threat to our interests than shoulder fired weapons like RPG's and Stingers. Sending 240 F-16's to the Muslim Brotherhood is like reading Shakespear aloud to pigs.

Under Obama, our nation is on the wrong side of Scripture. (Genesis 12:3 as always.) And just wait until John (my buddy is Keith Ellison) starts to get involved.

The planes were delivered on Superbowl Sunday. The lights and electricity going out in that dome for a half hour said a lot about where the nation and the world is headed eventually.

Amos 5:20

“Shall not the day of the Lord be darkness, and not light? even very dark, and no brightness in it?”

They delivered those planes faster than I can drive to Washington and protest the treason!

What the....????

Germany asks for their gold back and its gonna take the Feds SEVEN years to deliver it????

Congress/Ovomit required to pass a budget BY FEDERAL LAW and we haven’t seen one since 2009 and it is now 2013...????

America’s economy in a death spiral and record unemployment/national DEBT and these idiots are sending Sixteen F-16s and 200 Abrams tanks to Egypt as part of a $1 BILLION foreign aid package??????

For heavens sake, this foreign aid package was “decided” in 2010, and its been THREE YEARS and the Republicans can’t seem to figure out how to regroup and stop this TREASON????

Yet...we can deliver ON DEMAND and within hours of a vote FOUR 17 million dollar F-16’s!!!!!!

And nobody does anything but chase photo ops, cry, and do exactly what Ovomit and Reid and the Muslim infiltrators and Marxists want...which is to endanger our country and our alli Israel....

I am royally pissed. Just sick. These SOB’s want us to wait weeks or months to PASS and most likely pay for a background check intended to curtail our 2nd amendment rights...and can ship four jets to the tune of $68 million in mere days?????

God have mercy on us.

They have been making M1A1 bodies and turrets in Egypt almost since they came about under US licence. The latest shipment of M1A1 parts will bring the total to about 3,300. I believe we can thank B. Clinton for his foresight.

It is not looking good — plus it seems the Middle East is on the verge - I’m wondering if there is a war that allows the Antichrist to “bring peace”?

Sure seems like a lot of trouble these days.
