Egypt Signing Unprecedented $3 Billion MiG-35 Deal with Russia


Putin-Obama Meme 1

Ehud Ya’ari of Israel’s Channel 2 News reported on Tuesday night, that Egypt and Russia will be signing an unprecedented military agreement.

In this agreement between Cairo and Moscow, Egypt will receive 24 of Russia’s advanced Mikoyan MiG-35 fighter jets, along with military and strategic advisers, as well as training for the Egyptian Air Force.

The deal is worth $3 billion.

It follows in the footsteps of a $2 billion arms deal that Egypt signed with Russia in February, and was primarily funded by Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.

The deal itself has been in the works since November, as JewishPress.com reported when Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu visited Cairo and Egyptian leader Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, and developed in response to decreased US military aid to Egypt.

This deal is a major setback to US policy and diplomacy in the Middle East, and is a direct slap in the face for U.S. President Obama.

In related news, the U.S. is sending 600 troops to Eastern Europe for an exercise, to try to reassure its NATO allies, following Russia’s actions in Ukraine.

  6. it wont happen it will never happen

  7. Well bible prophecy talking about King from south attacking the North European empire.Russian is arming this nation. Israelites and Jewish people will lose their power and will be taken captive before Jesus return

  8. Well American is slowly loosing its world power. Financially and military. The Holy Bible predicted this thousands year ago

  9. Anonymous says:

    That above picture is inaccurate. Obama is too pathologically arrogant to think he's ever lost anything ever in spite of evidence to the contrary. He thinks he's playing 9th dimensional chess that mere mortals couldn't possibly understand. If reality intrudes on his preconceptions, it is reality's fault. He is a narcissist of the highest order.

  10. Noel Eliscu says:

    as usual our great president screwed us again by supporting the Brotherhood and not the military we have lost Egypt as an ally . we can not be trusted in the eyes of the world and our great president lies to his own people

  11. Obama missed the chance to be friends with Egypt .. Now the US has another enemy..

  12. Anand Yadava says:

    Mig-35 jet alredy in indian navy…

  13. Obama wanted to punish Egypt for the ousting of his friends the Muslim Brotherhood from power, this is Egypt’s answer. Well done Mr Knowitall!

  14. How much foreign aid have we provided so they could afford this deal.

  15. no.. our fighters are superior to migs.. so if egypt attacks Israel for any reason, Israel has the superior fighter….so stop the BS.

  16. You don’t know what you are talking about. And if you are Jewish… mind your own business… we don’t need your fox news bull****…

  17. Reda Radwan says:

    hoooooooooooooooooooooop la

  18. Dave Carey says:

    Like I tried to convince LB Johnson, when you shake hands with the Saudi's be sure to watch for a knife in the free hand as may be in your back Boss !

  19. national security comes before any call the president can make and there is a board the handles just that so for ever wrong move that we think the president is making on national security on the contrary the chess peaces are being played just right by our national security staff. we always come out on top and all ties with Arab nations have to be cut off so that we can have the leverage to do next what is inevitable

  20. Don't you realize that having a common enemy means that we have common interests?

  21. I am sure Obama never played chess.

  22. Gary Harper says:

    Americans did not want our country arming the Muslim Brotherhood anyway. Perhaps that has all changed now?

    Put a MiG in the air, and it has to come back down, one way or another. They had MiGs in Afghanistan too; but the Afghanis are still there. The MiGs are not. Except those lying in wreckage on the ground.

  23. Peter Massa says:

    If I am not mistaken, the big O released 3 billion dollars to
    Egypt in 2013. I guess to buy planes from Russia.

  24. Mandi Fahmy says:

    It is high time the US stopped pampering everyone! Let everyone make their choices and be responsible for them. The US, or anybody else, for that matter, will never have enough money to make up for good sense!

  25. The game is on …
    And let the brotherhood help u :)
