US Sending 20 F-16s To Muslim Brotherhood Led Egypt


In the wake of a failed attempt at a massive power grab by Egyptian President and self-appointed Pharaoh of Egypt Mohamed Morsi, the United States is just about to send over 20 F-16 fighter jets as part of a $1 billion foreign aid package. That’s right fellow taxpayers, that’s $1 billion of our money and our technology to a government run by the radical Muslim Brotherhood.

Fox News reports,

The first four jets are to be delivered to Egypt beginning Jan. 22, a source at the naval air base in Fort Worth, where the planes have been undergoing testing, told FoxNews.com. The North African nation already has a fleet of more than 200 of the planes and the latest shipment merely fulfills an order placed two years ago. But given the uncertainty in Cairo, some critics wonder if it is wise to be sending more top gun planes.

“Should an overreaction [by Egypt] spiral into a broader conflict between Egypt and Israel, such a scenario would put U.S. officials in an embarrassing position of having supplied massive amounts of military hardware … to both belligerents,” said Malou Innocent, a foreign policy analyst at the Cato Institute. “Given Washington’s fiscal woes, American taxpayers should no longer be Egypt’s major arms supplier.”

The U.S. government ordered and paid for the fighter jets for Egypt’s military as part of foreign aid for Egypt back in 2010, when Hosni Mubarak ruled. The fighter jets were supposed to be delivered in 2013, and delivery will go ahead as scheduled even though Hosni Mubarak has been removed from power and replaced by Mohamed Morsi, who led the Muslim Brotherhood before becoming Egypt’s president.

So while we were in the midst of deficit spending, the national debt gathering speed and the country headed towards the fiscal cliff, we were also tossing in foreign aid to Egypt. Of course this was done during the rule of Hosni Mubarak, but still the question needs to be addressed as to why we provide foreign aid to Egypt in the first place or any other country for that matter.

Providing the F-16’s to Egypt comes one year after the U.S. sold $30 billion worth of F-15SZ fighter jets to Saudi Arabia as part of a 10-year, $60 billion arms deal.

Earlier this year Egypt wanted to purchase $1 billion worth of German U-boats (submarines) and the Obama administration was happy to comply by forgiving $1 billion in debt to the cash strapped country.
