Now, let me get this straight! All hell broke loose in Egypt. The U.S. has already sent eight fighter jets to Egypt because…let’s see…because every country should be armed by the U.S. because it is the ‘humanitarian’ thing to do? Fighter jets feed people, food is not necessary? War is good, peace is not? Destruction is good, sound infrastructure is not? The U.S. is in such great shape that we don’t need the money that U.S. taxpayers paid for those jets that were already sent to Egypt and the ones that they will eventually get depending on if and when the U.S. government can figure out just who is in power in Egypt and whether or not they will remain in power what with the ongoing conflict in Egypt and can they keep it together since we cannot quite figure out if Egypt’s democratically elected President Morsi was ousted by a military coup? Are you with me so far? Because, this is deep! The Egyptian military has stated that elections will be held(although, I don’t think that means much since Morsi was ousted and he was democratically ‘elected’)and Egypt has already received more than 200 F-16 fighter jets anyway! So, why the hell not just send the four slated for Egypt to Egypt? What difference is four going to make compared to the over 200 that have already been delivered? What is the point?
Washington’s annual $1.5 billion aid to Egypt has been under the spotlight since the July 3 ousting of elected President Mohammed Morsi by the country’s military.
Apparently that $1.5 billion in aid that the U.S. has been sending ‘annually’ to Egypt must have been for the military, it could not have been aid to help ‘feed’ the people of Egypt since….
Regardless of who runs Egypt, the country’s economy is in desperate need of support.
The country has less than two months’ supply of imported wheat left in its stocks, Morsi’s minister of supplies told Reuters on Thursday – revealing a shortage more acute than previously disclosed.
Unbelievable! The people of this country through our tax dollars have sent an annual gift of $1.5billion to Egypt in the form of fighter jets and this is called ‘aid’ and yet Egypt is running out of food because fighter jets are more important than feeding the people of Egypt???!!! The people of this country, the United States of America are in “desperate need of support” and we’re not getting it because we have to send fighter jets to Egypt? We have to supply the rebels in Syria with arms? We have to make sure that our nose is in every country in the oil rich middle east regardless of the fact that American citizens are being seriously, adversely impacted by the ongoing sequester, food stamps are being cut so that even more children will go to bed hungry and seniors are already feeling the effects of program cuts. Those who were homeless were told that there was no funding to help them with housing due to the cuts and yet the Obama Administration is flip-flopping over whether or not to send four more fighter jets to Egypt??? What the hell??!!!!!! We’ve just got to be in on that oil even to the detriment of the most vulnerable of our own because even though Egypt does not produce much oil, it controls the Suez Canal, the quickest route to get that oil out. So, yes…give Egypt the remaining four fighter jets because even though the people of Egypt need ‘wheat aid’, since they are short on wheat, fighter jets are what they are going to get! As for the citizens of the U.S., we need more program cuts because we just ‘ain’t’ suffering enough!
