    I suspect we are playing old school balance of power politics with Egypt and Libya. Egyptians and Libyans HATE each other. It is just a matter of time until those two go at it.

    No, we shouldn't.

    Why?

    Because they will be used against Israel eventually. Sit back and watch. It was an asinine move to do this. Egypt... not even a solid ally of the U.S.

    Dumbasses.

    Not while a member of the Muslim Brotherhood is in charge there. Things may change down the road, but right now, I would say no. Their government is not firmly settled as it is, so we really don't know how they'll use the F-16s.

    sure, with an override kill switch that only we can operate, or operates automatically if any on them get too close to Israel....

    I was thinking of something like that too. Maybe an RF kill switch on the fuel pump for the engine. Then give Israel the RF frequency. Any funny business with the planes, woops no power.

He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
