    Its starts out with the question of the muslim brotherhood, then the next question is who are we supporting in syria? yep thats right al quaeda... But what i thought they didn't exist thanks to Bush and Obama. Well at least we didn't aid terrorists in Libya,...woops ok we did that too. Well at least we are promoting Just Warfare and only engaging in enemy combabtants when we do strike, oh wait,...nevermind our drones killed more children this year than all the mass shootings combined x 2. Why are we giving Egypt weapons? Because those in power like war, dems and repubs alike. It makes it a whole lot easier to trample rights and less likely to get voted out of office

    It should be pointed out that the F-16's being sold to them are the export models...seriously downgraded versions of what we and NATO .... and the Israelis fly. For that matter, Israel flies the F-15 in both the interceptor and Strike Eagle model. In a street fight, the Israelis would win by a long shot. Time and again it's been shown that superior pilots can overcome the shortcomings of their aircraft while lackluster pilots can not make superior aircraft perform up to snuff.

    Don't know about the tanks. I have a sense that the army is not fully under the control of the Egyptian political leadership but rather sort of marches to it's own drummer. I do know that for many years the US and Egyptian armies have had fairly close ties, including a long standing biennial joint exercise know as Bright Star. A bit of research revealed that General Dynamics has a factory in Egypt which is producing the Abrams M1A1 model, again a somewhat downgraded model.

    Good observation, Bingo!
    The Libertarian Party believes that all persons are entitled to keep the fruits of their labor. A call for the repeal of the income tax, abolishment of the Internal Revenue Service and all federal programs and services not required under the U.S. Constitution. We support the passage of a "Balanced Budget Amendment" to the U.S. Constitution, provided that the budget is balanced exclusively by cutting expenditures, and not by raising taxes. LP.org

    We shouldn't be selling the Muslim brotherhood a blank pistol.
