    US Sending 20 F-16s to Egypt​



    by Breitbart News
    10 Dec 2012


    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.

    Ahahaha!
    "Hey, let's be friends. I'm going to give you 20 jets that are 20 years out of date, that way if you ever turn on us we can blow you out of the sky before you have a chance to fight back."

    Why not the f-22? We don't seem to want to make anymore for ourselves.

    Obama is trying to win his support, which isn't a good idea with this.

    Would you give someone who absolutely despised you a gun, in hopes of becoming best friends, when Islam is the problem? I wouldn't.


    I say cut off all aid.

    I don't give warnings.
