Obama throwing American workers under the chopper...
Obama has signed a no-bid deal to buy 21 light attack helicopters from ....
[...]Now, here's the twist you might not have expected: At the same time as the Obama administration is denouncing Russia for sending MI-17 attack helicopters to Syria, the Obama administration is buying MI-17 attack helicopters from the same Russian arms exporter, Rosboronexport.You heard right. The same Russians who devastated Afghan villages in ten years of bloody murder, who decimated the country, placed explosive charges in dolls and dropped them for little Afghan girls to play with ... are getting $375 million in taxpayer dollars from America's Dear Beloved Leader to build helicopters so we can give them to the Afghans that the Russians didn't kill.
Yes, that's right. The Obama administration is paying recalcitrant Russia $375 million for a posse of 21 MI-17's. In turn, the Obama administration will give these Russian MI-17's to Afghan government forces to fight the newest generation of rebels in the harsh terrain of that forsaken land.
And what about American manufacturers of helicopters? All fifteen of them and their thousands of employees?
Don't American workers get a bite of the apple?
Do our choppers stink?
How much more "flexibility" does Dear Beloved Leader have to show the Rooosians? Does bending over and grabbing your ankles indicate flexibility? If so, we are rapidly becoming as flexible as the French.
