What a disgrace. I only hope that those who have roots in Israel and who voted for him are aware of this.
And Egypt needs all this because that are threatened ? By who ????????????
Let's pray it was a wise decision and not like Afghanistan where the US trained Afghan troops and some of them killed our veterans. We live in a screwed up world and by doing this just adds to the confusion. Is this part of cutting the military budget, I don't think so. Any cuts to the military budget MUST be stopped dead in it's tracks.
Well this a fine kettle of fish.. Arming the enemies of our Friend Israel, so he can say that made peace in the middle east, Arming the Muslim Brotherhood radical president of Egypt so he can go and kill Jew's, so he can sell his obsolete military equipment to Hamas so they can wage war against Israel.. So our Illustrious leader has indeed chosen to arm the middle east and prepare them for war, instead of diffusing the situation and prepare them for a peaceful coexistence. Good Job Obama.. You will be remembered as the worst POTUS ever. A war monger that spoke out of two sides of his face at the same time !!!
This has been going on for decades. All the sophisticated anti air, radars, tanks, planes that we've sent to Egypt was promptly pointed in Israel's direction. Our SOF guys are still training their troops and SF.
The real question is why are we continuing to do it now?
(the threat that this equipment poses might not be as bad as it might look at first blush - the Egyptians are incapable of maintaining their tanks and planes, that is done by US contractors...were a balloon to go up, we'd only really need to pull our contractors out and the equipment would grind to a halt).
Those Israel supporters who backed Obama are fools! Their hero, Obama, is pro Muslim Brotherhood, and this group wants Israel destroyed. When will you open your eyes and admit your were fools to believe anything our new dictator says?
Obama is a scumbag from hell. He wants to obliterate our military while building up an Islamic military in Egypt....which will be used to attack Israel sooner or later.
Either Obama is braindead....which he is....or he is being treasonist and helping set up the destruction of Israel right under everyone's noses in broad daylight. People are actually buying this load of donkey bullsh**????!!!
This is the kind of person that Obama is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ppgg_vF3Z-0&t=02m35s
If you listen to that clip then you will understand everything you need to know about him.
Obama is Ellsworth Toohey.
All is not lost in Egypt. The people, In what must have sent shock waves,to every Despot ,Including the ones here in Washington and their Bankster ( Rockefeller/Rotschild ) overlords, stormed the gates of the Presidential Palace the other day and drove Morsi and his staff into hiding. Don't for one second think that Obama/Reid/Pelosi and company and BoehnerMcConnell/Jeb /Rove and company, aren't in at least a slight Panic over the "Peasants storming the Gates" aspect and what it might imply in the future,for our Overlord's over here. Those weapons might find there way very soon into the re-liberated Freedom loving Egyptian people. Things are not going exactly to plan in either Egypt or syria for Obama and his handlers.
Maybe. But, Obuma buying off the Egyptian Military to stay on Morsi's side can't help. It does kinda prove your point though...
What's Obama going to say about his buddy Morsi when Morsi starts using brutal force on his own people? I am a very strong believer that Obama pushed the Arab Spring so Islam could take over secular dictators. The story of "democracy" was a sham from the beginning. I read an article during the Arab Spring where a reporter interviewed top members of the Muslim Brotherhood and they said they were going to lay low until the leaders were toppled, then they were going to jump to power. Yet, the Obama administration seemed completely unaware and they still call it a Democracy. Does anyone...other than stupid liberals....believe this is a democracy or that there will ever be another election? Morsi will have to be forcefully removed and Sharia Law will have to be aborted.
With "fiscal cliff", where are we getting the money and power to fund our islamic allied terrorist enemies?
G-d protect us from the punishment that will come down from G-d to America because of obama and his leftist thugs betrayal of Israel.
What happened to that money we were supposed to save from the ending our own wars that was supposed to be used to improve our infrastructure? Oh, it's' being used to arm our enemies instead. Well, that's what I get for listening to Oblahblahblah I guess. Let me just get an early start....ahem...Don't blame me, I voted for Romney/Ryan.
Obama lied and a whole bunch of people are going to die.
I have said it before, this is planned chaos with an economic motivation. Just giving them the tools of death. Israel is only the enemy because they are the lone beacon of freedom and democracy in the region. Much the same as the USA and why we must be neutralized from within. Religious belief is just a tool. Obama may side with the Muslims but he is more than willing too give them the tools to kill each other. Why? The vast natural resources of the African Continent will be plundered by the New World Order. A new economic recovery for the insanely wealthy. Barrack the magic man, claiming he is for the middle class and wants to tax the rich, is slight of hand. He is married to the Banksters, the NWO and Global Corporate interests. Our real fear should be that he is over matched, playing in the big league, and that he and we are being "played" as a result. They use his ideology and narcissism against him. How in God's name did he get reelected? Doesn't it seem like the game was fixed, up to and including his opponent?
Obama's World View:
Secular Autocrat, Friendly to the West and Israel, Tolerant of Christians, Women have relative freedom
The Egyptian economy collapses sparking protests. The Muslim Brotherhood exploits the crisis in order to seize power. Obama and Hillary intercede and say Mubarak must go. They warn Mubarak not to use the military to restore order.
Muslim Brotherhood Islamist Fascist Dictator in waiting, anti-Western, actively seeks destruction of Israel. Christians are marginalized, harassed, and intimidated. Institutes theocratic rule of law as he announces Sharia will be basis of all laws. Sharia, which enslaves and oppresses woman, religious minorities, or anyone who disagrees with or speaks out against Islam.
Morsi attempts to rewrite the Egyptian Constitution, superseding the courts and the legislature, essential naming himself Pharaoh, which sparking protests. Muslim Brotherhood hires thugs to molest, rape, and intimidate. Obama and Hillary are not only silent, they decide now is the time to "modernize" Egypt's armed forces, all the while Obama is cutting America's armed service to pre-WWI levels.
Am I missing something? Or, did Obama and Hillary depose a mild-Despot to install a hostile tyrant, not only to minorities in Egypt, but one who seeks to destroy Western civilization, Christendom, and Judaism.
Egypt is due 200 M1A1 Abrams battle tanks, the same mechanized firepower manned by American soldiers
A couple of notes on this, these are not the same Abrams that are manned by US Forces, they may look similar, but looks can be deceiving. These are not equipped with the advanced fire control systems or even the same armor package. These are the "export" version. That said it won't matter that they have 1,200 of them, Israel's forces will still destroy them. Why you might ask, simple, a difference in a couple of key components, the men and women manning the Israeli tanks and their training.
I hope you're right. But there is a rumor that King Putt is also thinking of selling F-35s to Turkey and that's our most advanced VTOL fighter. I don't think there is a "export" version of that. I sure hope he doesn't do it, but I wouldn't put it past him.
Likely, in the case of the F-35, it will be like the F-14s we sold to the Shah of Iran. They will not have the advanced avionics package and will not come with spare parts, there is also the issue of training pilots and ground crews.
Addendum: That, of course, is if we sell them the aircraft, it could just be internet scuttlebutt.
There is no doubt that the commitment level and training of the Israelis goes far beyond what the Egyptian Muslims could ever have.
You couldn't write a movie script like this, and have any producer in Hollywood buy it. And yet, this is real. They are actually doing this. Unbelievable.
Whitefriend, I have a proposition for you- you did a fantastic job with your comment about the UN. How would you feel about writing a couple of parables for the CFP? Is_Sense_Common had the idea to use parables as one of the ways we can educate folks about liberalism and the truth of constitutional conservatism. If you're interested, let me know, and I'll get with Is_Sense and we'll meet here for a few ideas. :-)
All these arrangements were made when Mubarak was in power. Our Muslim in chief is happy to provide his friends the Muslim Brotherhood the arms they will need when they decide to take on Israel again. It's going to happen. And Obama will once again give the orders to stand down.
This could come back to bite the USA in a very bad way...
God to Abraham
<> 3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.

Escape, you who live in the Daughter of Babylon!” 8For this is what the Lord Almighty says: “After he has honored me and has sent me against the nations that have plundered you—for whoever touches you touches the apple of his eye— 9I will surely raise my hand against them so that their slaves will plunder them.a Then you will know that the Lord Almighty has sent me.
Maybe we could just send Obama over there - for good.
None of us are surprised... this is why we fought this monster's re-election tooth and nail. Obama is a Muslim... how can anyone deny that? And he hates America and he hates Israel.
Well Egypt may have the largest army in Africa, but Turkey in Asia Minor has the FIFTH largest army in the world, a fact that is lost on many people. They now want a boat load of F-35's. So Barack Hussein Obama is doing his very best to arm countries around Israel to the teeth.
