Who Profited From Arming Egypt?


www.huffingtonpost.com


According to lists of arms sales notifications compiled by the Pentagon's Defense Security Assistance Agency, in the last decade alone, the Department of Defense has brokered over $11 billion in U.S. arms offers to the Egyptian regime on behalf of weapons makers like Lockheed Martin, General Dynamics, Boeing, Raytheon, and General Electric....the Egyptian military is virtually made in the USA.

And most of this purchasee purchased for the Egyptian armed forces with U.S. taxpayer dollars. Seems like a money-laundering racket to me.

Nothing too surprising here, but seeing as this has been a topic of some discussion in various threads, it might answer some questions.

The numbers are pretty huge. "The biggest winners have been Lockheed Martin ($3.8 billion); General Dynamics ($2.5 billion); Boeing ($1.7 billion); Raytheon ($750 million); and GE ($750 million)."

Egypt and Israel GOVERNMENTS receive about the same amount of US aid.
Israel gets mo betta weapons above that.

The US tax payer is payin for what the peeps are rebelling over.
the US slave master profits at both ends.

At least the Egyptians have stood up to this.

Anyone who didn't become aware of this during the past 10 years was either too young to need to be yet, simply not paying attention, or is covering and rationalizing for these greedy warmongers who need human blood and bodies to keep feeding their war machine.

Some will come in and argue that this provides jobs for Americans. But at what cost? We all know that's a small drop in the bucket compared to the insane profits, and besides most of those jobs aren't staying here anyway, are they?

We can find other industries, thank you very much. Maybe ones that one lead to perpetual wars.
