    Hopefully we charged confiscatory prices for superior product.

    Does anybody think this is still going to happen considering what is happening there right now?

    Those that don't know their history are doomed to repeat it. The U.S. Hasn't learned not to arm people we might be in conflict with tomorrow.

    I'm sure the terrorists taking over will be quite happy for that.

    Perhaps the Iraqi should start defending what is inside their borders too. Just a suggestion.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Nah its not a bad move, its a great move. I think we should sell some F-16's to ISIS or whatever it is they are calling themselves, especially since they..... ahem.... liberated...... 450 or so million dollars from the bank of Mosul. After all they should have a fair fight. We should do our best to repatriate that loot by providing first class armaments to all parties of this conflict. Its a win win for us. We get their money, and they get dead without us pulling the trigger. Its a great scenario. We should have done this a long time ago when Sadam was in power. Sell to him and the Kurds and the Shia and the Sunnis. Fleece em all I say.

    Yeah, who the hell ever heard of Bin Laden before 9/11/01?

    Let's not sell 'em anything, they'll eventually run out of munitions and go back to rocks and sticks for weapons.
