The following story is another example that shows the United States is on the wrong side. A “foreign aid package to Egypt” is another name for supplying arms to the enemy. This is simple: what will the purpose of these jets? They will either be used on their own people or against Israel. Or they will be used against us.
Where is the outcry in Congress? Where is the outcry from the military? Or is
our the military more concerned with profits and kickbacks than our soldiers and national security?
The Obama administration took a careful look at the political calendar before announcing that the first four F-16 fighter planes – of the 20 approved in a $1 billion US foreign aid package to Egypt – would be delivered Jan. 22.
The announcement came Tuesday, Dec. 11, as Cairo and other Egyptian towns were set for massive rival demonstrations for and against President Mohamed Morsi’s decision to hold a referendum on a pro-Islamist constitution Saturday. It therefore came in for rising criticism in Washington of the wisdom of sending the jets to an unstable Egypt in the grip of a strong political confrontation.
A broad range of opposition groups – pro-democratic, liberal, secular, women and Christian – are demanding that President Morsi cancel the referendum. The Muslim Brotherhood is mobilizing its supporters to counter this protest. As the first anti-Morsi groups began gathering in Tahrir Square Tuesday, nine were hurt by masked gunmen.
