Something just doesn’t seem right. The same government who wants to take our guns away is now in the process of sending Sixteen F-16s and 200 Abrams tanks to the Muslim Brotherhood controlled government in Egypt.
According the Washington Free Beacon, the Obama administration is about to send the Muslim Brotherhood controlled government in Egypt military hardware, weapons, tanks and F-16 fighter jets.
In a letter to the Senate, The State Department said:
Egypt is a strategic partner with whom we have a long history of close political-military relations that have benefited U.S. interests. For the past 30 years, the F-16 aircraft has been a key component of the relationship between the United
States military and the Egyptian Armed Forces. Maintaining this relationship and assisting with the professionalization and the building of the Egyptian Armed Forces’ capabilities to secure its borders is one of our key interests in the region.
Egypt continues to play an important role in regional peace and stability. In all of our engagements with President Morsi and his staff, they have reaffirmed Egypt’s commitment to its international agreements, including its peace treaty with Israel. Egypt was instrumental in negotiating the Gaza ceasefire, and continues to work with the parties involved to implement it and secure a more lasting peace.
While Egypt is making progress on completing its democratic transition, we continue to press President Morsi to build greater national consensus through a genuine give-and-take on fundamental issues like the Egyptian constitution. We are also encouraging the opposition to engage in such discussions. President
Delaying or cancelling deliveries of the F-16 aircraft would undermine our efforts to address our regional security interests through a more capable Egyptian military and send a damaging and lasting signal to Egypt’s civilian and military leadership as we work toward a democratic transition in this key Middle Eastern state.
So just so we all have this straight, the Feds don’t trust Americans with the responsibility of owning a firearm, but they do trust a terrorist run government with Sixteen F-16s and 200 Abrams tanks. Anyone else see a problem?
