More tanks for Egypt this year than the entire Marine Corps has…
For the new Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood dominated government, the Obama Administration is ensuring another $1.3 billion annual shipment of state-of-the-art weaponry.
As reported by The Washington Times, despite Egypt’s new president Mohammed Morsi being a member of the terrorist related Muslim Brotherhood, the money and arms pipeline from Washington to Cairo will remain open and flowing.
Morsi has recently granted himself virtual dictatorial power in his native land.
To keep Morsi’s actions in perspective, many political pundits have described his power grab as if Barack Obama fired every Republican in the U.S. Congress and dissolved the Supreme Court.
This year alone, Obama will be sending the Egyptians 200 M1A1 Main Battle Tanks.
Egypt already maintains the world’s 7th largest tank force, numbering in at 4,000.
The active-duty Marine Corps has less than 150 M1A1 Abrams tanks in its inventory at any given time.
Under the new Obama budget, the tank force for The Corps, along with the rest of the U.S. Armed forces are facing a $1,000,000,000,000 cut over the next decade.
