A superpower arming the interim government of a politically and ideologically unstable country with high-grade weapons sounds familiar. Oh well, like I said, what could possibly go wrong here? Surely those missiles will be locked away and kept safe.

We need a gif of Jeremy Clarkson saying 'What could possibly go wrong?'

You mean Obama isn't just selling (or giving) them to ISIS?

Hmmm, that is what I expected was going to happen.

I kind of agree with Dan Carlin on stuff like this. We should have sold them blue jeans, playboys, and rock and roll instead. Not that I want explicitly American culture to take over everywhere. I don't want that. But the idea is sound.

Those who cannot remember the past, are condemned to repeat it,

First they shake Saddam's hand, then they kill him.

We could ship them the latest French haute couture... might be cheaper, and definitely would go a long way to breaking down the burka barrier.

Even after human rights advocates urged against these action it continues? For shame misery and destruction, but guess that is what's being aimed for here.
And for those just skimming through can see it's not just an RT news spin: "U.S. close to sending largest ever Hellfire missile order to Iraq"- Washington Post

Human rights advocates have accused Iraq of indiscriminate airstrikes in numerous areas, including some in the western city of Fallujah using controversial barrel bombs. Last week, Human Rights Watch urged the United States should stop sending weapons to Iraq until the Baghdad government adheres to international law.

Well, they may be nuts but they know exactly what they are doing. The point is they have been doing it for a long time but now we are close to end game and things should be obvious. No government is stupid. Governments don't do things that weaken their own country time and time again by accident or stupidity. Someone always gains. These forces such as ISIS, MS-13 and others are being deliberately supported and funded. You don't really think organizations like this can really spring up overnight without some serious resources do you? Think and look up fifth column, banana republic, and the history of three letter agencies. They are all corrupt and the higher level they are, the more corrupt and guilty they are. Many who cooperate with the agenda may be bribed, blackmailed or controlled some other way but your choices for representation are item 1 or item 1. Your vote does not count except maybe on the local level. None of us are free. If you think you are free, quit your job and do whatever you want to do. People need to wake up, pull themselves out of the matrix and see things for how they really are. The rabbit hole goes deep, very deep and probably deeper than any of us imagine. Detach yourselves from fiat money and commercial banking as much as possible so to minimize your feeding of the system used to create war, death, destruction, and slavery.

U.S. approves $700 million sale of Hellfire missiles to Iraq
Reuters 6 hours ago


WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. State Department has approved the sale of 5,000 Hellfire missiles to Iraq as Baghdad tries to fend off militant Islamist forces.

The deal is valued at $700 million, the Defense Security Cooperation Agency said on Tuesday.

Iraq had requested 5,000 of the air-to-ground missiles, which are manufactured by Lockheed Martin Corp and enable helicopters to battle tanks and other armored vehicles. Much smaller Hellfire shipments have already been sent to Iraq



 



hellfire missiles (@ $140k ea.) are not adaptable as RPGs or ManPADS....

but the thread consensus that these advanced missiles will find their way into the hands of the Caliphate is realistic

when ISIS does the regime change in Iraq....the copters & Jets will be available to ISIS....and the WH occupier will hold up a change-of-custody graphic to show that the WH & the Muslim Brotherhood cabal in the Beltway are 'clean-as-a-whistle' about the arming of the Jihadists of ISIS...

the missile exchange is being Sanitized --- just as the Benghazi 'advanced arms' corridor was sanitized or had to be sanitized with the blood of 4 troopers & a ambassador and at least 2 or 3 top Generals that mutinied the outrageous WH orders

You know the day is coming when any country will build weapons will be shunned and avoided . So U.S why don't you start building a good sneaker, and some of the products you used to .Dont give me that crap that you cant compete with Japan or China because despite them producing a very good replica of a Harley or a Gibson the world would be willing to buy the real deal .Maybe we could boycott Wall Mart and really push this crap being produced to kill people to the side in the way of making it profitable .
