    I agree, more or less, with Luna.
    Neither of us have any desire for any end......its silly and a false conclusion..

    It was not a purchase of F-16s by Egypt. You would agree with that, yes?

    You would stand aside and watch Israel be destroyed by her enemies. Your support of Israel is non-existent. Let's not pretend that you are neutral.

    But if the Muslim Brotherhood remains in control in Egypt, President Obama is very likely to sign off on such an insane proposal.

    Lets get it straight, Obama's foreign policies have been a complete failure. Our allies including the UK no longer trust Obama (America) since Obama has thrown other American allies under the bus.

    The entire Middle East have become a basket case in the past four years under the Obama administration. One of the biggest mistakes of the Obama administration was supporting the "Arab Spring" that put the Muslim Brotherhood in power in Egypt and increased their power throughout the Middle East.

    Lets remember that the Egyptian military is not the Muslim Brotherhood and who along with past American administrations kept Mubarak in power for decades.

    The incompetent Obama administration and that includes the State Department should have told Mubarak that times have changed and it's time to step down. It's better that you put someone in control or the the Islamist fascist may end up in power.

    President Mubarak was a long time ally of America and protected Israels southern flank which helped keeping all out war from happening in the Middle East.

    Then you had Obama and Libya. Obama like usual ignored the Constitution and the law and violated the "War Powers Act." No problem with the Republicans, conservatives and neoconservatives, they have been saying for over thirty years that the "War Powers Act" was unconstitutional. Obama confirmed it and those who supported the "War Powers Act" (liberals) gave Obama a complete pass.

    What most Americans are unaware of, when Congress authorized G.W. Bush to invade Iraq, it scared the crap out of all our enemies including those Islamist countries who use to harbour and protect radical Islamist terrorist.

    Omar Qaddafi crapped his pants in 2003 and contacted the Bush administration that he was going to destroy his WMD stockpiles, dismantle his development on nukes and wanted to join America on it's war against Al Qaeda and the Taliban.

    It was the Qaddafi regime who took over enhanced interrogations of captured Al Qaeda and Taliban for the CIA when those in Congress got their panties all waded up over enhanced interrogation of those who want to kill us.

    I'm sure with Obama's approval of homosexual sodomy he got off when Qaddafi was captured, sodomised and murdered.

    Throughout 2012 President Obama claimed that Al Qaeda was on the run. He didn't lie, Al Qaeda was on the run during his four years in the White House. Running all over the Middle East and North Africa expanding their base of operations. Al Qaeda can now be found operating in ten countries that they had no precence in 2008 ! They are now back in Iraq !

    No way should we sell F-16's to Egypt as long as the Muslim Brotherhood has a presence of power in Egypt.

    How many Americans are even aware who the Muslim Brotherhood is ? How many know the connections of Hitler and Nazi Germany and the Muslim Brotherhood ? How many know that the Muslim Brotherhood has a S/S Regiment that fought under the German military in Europe during W W ll.
    What's with Barack Obama's infatuation with the Muslim Brotherhood ? Half of America really don't give a damn.
    Note: We're not selling planes to Egypt. We're giving them away.
    Note: This foreign aid give away has to be approved by Congress. Obama can't give away military hardware or anything else on his own.

    Note: Congress' approval rating is in the single digits. Why might that be?

    except that the blacks in South Africa weren't in the habit of shooting rockets into white neighborhoods.

    "Why might that be" ?

    I would have to say the lack of leadership in the White House.

    Remember Ronald Reagan ? He knew something about leadership and was able to work with Tip O'Neil

    There was this guy in the White House, Bill Clinton was his name. He also knew something about leadership and was able to work with Newt Gingrich.

    Today you have this narcissist, Barack Obama who lacks leadership, unwilling to work with Republicans and instead ignores the Constitution and abuses Executive Order privileges to get his way.
