We obviously never learn our lesson, so I suppose just sit back and enjoy the show. There's no stopping it once someone puts a signature on a piece of paper.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Of course we should be sending Fi6s to Egypt. We have a $700 billion Military Offense budget to justify. Then somebody has to feed the Military/Industrial/Corporate complex. You do that by using up equipment because then you need replacements. We can't be using dumbass accountants that wouldn't realize that. We have to gin up some mo' money fo' the lobbyists also. This stuff don't come from thin air. It comes from air heavy with the aroma of fish.

    Yeah, but Egypt won't go there. They are in strike distance of the Final Solution nukes. Egypt and Libya is a more visceral Hatfields & McCoys man on the street type of hate.

    To be fair, their military operates autonomously of the gov't. They have seperate leadership chains. I still disagree with giving them the birds. Just sayin.

    Of course we should. Things ALWAYS turn out well when we give weapons to radical governments in the middle east.
