Under the heading of "You can't make this stuff up" we are giving Egypt 20 of our newest version F-16 fighters. Aside from the fact that it is 1.6 billion dollars that we don't have, so we'll borrow it from China. Let's even suspend reality for a moment and forget that the "Arab Spring" is coming unglued at all of it's seams and Morsi wants to declare Marshal Law. Maybe we should, oh I don't know, rethink sending our latest and greatest to countries who even President Obama admits "aren't our allies......." Not our enemies...........but not our allies....." One would think that maybe we should hold off a bit to see if we can prevent our own F/16's from killing our real allies, and, down the road, possibly our guys.
This shouldn't be a left v. right argument, how about some common sense! These people are not our allies, they really barely put up with us, and that just because we're ignorant enough to send them weaponry and billions of dollars. How many times do we have to learn this lesson?
Yeah, I feel as if a lot of people on the hill lack this quality....
Also, I saw that the Thunderbirds are going to perform at OSH13? That's pretty cool.
