U.S. Government Approves 20 F-16 Fighter Jets As Gift To EgyptSubmitted by pawnstorm12 on Wed, 12/12/2012 - 02:48
FELLOW AMERICANS...WE ARE FUNDING AN ARMS RACE IN THE MIDDLE EAST - OUR FOUNDERS WOULD BE ENRAGED AND INSULTED!
This is TREASON against the citizens of the United States. And a threat to our national security.
Here's how they get away with it:
1. U.S. weapons manufacturers lobby the U.S. Congress to approve billions of dollars in foreign aid.
2. Then they put stipulations on the aid, forcing the receiving nations to use large percentages of it to BUY U.S. MADE MILITARY EQUIPMENT (in this case 20 F-16 fighter jets to Egypt) from the very companies who lobbied the congress to approve the aid.
3. Then the corrupt politicians get large campaign contributions (from the weapon manufacturers) so they can keep their elected offices - and do it all again.
4. It may be impossible to know, but the CIA must also be suspect in these transactions.
This sets the stage for Americn soldiers being killed BY THOSE VERY WEAPONS MADE IN AMERICA when we get involved in military conflicts with the countries to which we we gave aid.
And worse yet, there is INCENTIVE for wars because American weapons manufacturers profit even more when the politicians they lobbied approve military conflicts, invasions and occupations.
SO - There is a direct conflict of interest between our national defense and our politicians giving away (or even selling) military weapons to foreign nations.
But WE the citizens are allowing congress to do this, and the president always signs it - no matter WHO the president is - or which party he is in.
Meanwhile these egregious giveaways of American largess are NOT authorized anywhere in the U.S. Constitution.
AND, CHECK OUT THIS VIDEO and PLEASE PASS IT ON TO EVERYONE. THIS should enrage EVERY American citizen:
