Next time you hear people complain about all those receiving welfare or food stamps (most of time due to circumstances beyond their control such as poor wages or no jobs), keep this bit of info in mind.  I think Steve Cooper could be right, Obama and Putin very well might be coordinating their actions.
 

Remember when Barack Obama was caught on a hot mic telling Russian President Dmitri Medvedyev to let incoming Russian President Vladimir Putin know that after his re-election he would have more “flexibility”? If you don’t remember, check it out here. If you do, well now we are seeing a bit of that flexibility in motion. The Obama Department of Defense is going to spend nearly $700 million to buy Russian Mi-17 helicopters for the Afghan Air Force.

That’s right, $700 million of U.S. taxpayer money is going to fund our enemy’s air force. However, not only could this be considered treasonous, but even by the federal government’s 2013 National Defense Authorization Act they are in violation of their own legislation.

According to Riz Novosti:


WASHINGTON, April 4 (By Maria Young for RIA Novosti) – The US Department of Defense said Thursday it plans to sidestep a Congressional ban to purchase 30 helicopters from Russian state-owned defense firm Rosoboronexport, despite objections from US lawmakers who allege that the firm has equipped the Syrian government to commit brutal crimes against civilians.

“The Department of Defense (DOD) has notified Congress of its intent to contract with Rosoboronexport for 30 additional Mi-17 rotary-wing aircraft to support the Afghanistan National Security Forces (ANSF) Special Mission Wing,” Pentagon spokesman James Gregory told RIA Novosti in emailed comments.

The 2013 National Defense Authorization Act, approved by Congress last year, includes an amendment that prohibits financial contracts between the United States and Rosoboronexport, except when the Secretary of Defense determines that such arrangements are in the interest of national security.

“Given current timelines, the department has determined that Rosoboronexport is the only viable means of meeting ANSF requirements” for the helicopters, Gregory said.

The contract totals $690 million, most of which would go to the Russian arms maker, he added.

Obviously the question should be, why are we not spending money on American made helicopters? Second, why are we spending any money on helicopters for enemies? Third, why are we giving money to Russia for these helicopters?

  • Hmm I'm more concerned about the neo-cons, Israel, and Congress aiding and abetting the anti-Assad side in this Syrain civil war. :scratchchin:

    Spekaing of which haven't we sent over $60 trillion worth of foreign aid to Israel? And what has Israel ever done for us besides making us more hated over there?

    Or Egypt either, which is #2.

    Our neoconservatives in this country have their foreign policy rooted in Tel Aviv.

  • I don't think we should be giving Russia or Israel any money period.  As the article pointed out, what isn't this money being spent on producing these helicopters in this country.  How about the 35 billion in military equipment the USA will just abandon in Afghanistan once we withdraw.

    It was a useless war to begin with. That being said I would revitalize military spending here while cutting foreign entanglements and treaties abroad.

    I thank God Russia has intervened in Syria because now it backed the neo-cons off from being as bloodthirsty.
