U.S. Sending 20 More F-16s to Egypt – Just What An Islamic Republic Needs

Despite it’s Muslim Brotherhood government, the US has decided to send 20 more F-16 fighter planes to Egypt,  FoxNews reports.

Egypt already has 200 planes, and these 20 are part of an order placed by the U.S., for former president Hosni Mubarak 2 years ago, as part of a $1 billion dollar foreign package to Egypt.

With Islamic Egypt cozying up to Iran, and the Israel-Egypt peace treaty on the rocks, is sending them the most advanced F-16s that Lockheed Martin makes the best of ideas right now? You would think with problems that Egypt faces, sending food and teachers might be a far more wiser use of that money.

    “Obama Is Surrounding Israel By Very Advanced Weaponry. He Has Given Them More Military Tanks Than The US Military Possesses. WHY?”

  7. Okoro Leo C says:

    It’s either Egypt is at war or they are preparing for one. Obama should stop playing double standard in the ME.

  8. Okoro Leo C says:

    While Egypt gets 20 F-16 fighter jets, Israeli F-16 engines develop wings.

  9. shermanpeabody says:

    it’s a good thing because it creates jobs for American defense workers

  10. Anonymous says:

    creates jobs for American people.

  11. Okoro Leo C says:

    Is that the only thing that can create jobs?

  12. Yehuda Cohen says:

    Creates jobs for American people to provide Satan with weapons to try and take over the world; thus, is the goal of the Muslim Brotherhood.

  13. Grace Acosta says:

    Interesting. The Left gets all bent out of shape over the war in Afghanistan, but about military aid to Egypt we don't hear a peep. Double standards, much?

  14. is America not worried about the Muslim Brotherhood which is obvious helping Hamas and Iran? you are aiding your enemy indirectly!

  15. Curt Jones says:

    The Chosen One has learned all he can from Chavez. New mentors must be paid.
