Special Ops vets blast Obama’s weapons deal with Muslim Brotherhood

Special Operations Speaks logoIn a response to President Obama’s decision to send 16 Block 52 F-16 “Fighting Falcon” fighter jets and 200 M1A1 Abrams Main Battle Tanks to Egypt, Larry Bailey, a retired Navy SEAL captain and co-founder of Special Operations Speaks, is speaking out. Bailey’s group says the weapons would give the Islamist government updated technological air and ground combat capabilities and an offensive military capability that could be used against Israel.

Special Operations Speaks released the following statement from Bailey:

These modern US weapons are part of a package of military aid to Egypt that was concluded in 2010 with the previous Hosni Mubarak regime. The times and our relationship with Egypt have changed and not for the better. The Obama Administration is providing this aid package despite the dangerous change of government in Egypt, the current instability and violence, and the viciously anti-Semitic and anti-Israel rhetoric of President Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood from which he stems.

President Morsi has made no qualms about his racist views towards Israel, his radical Islamist beliefs, or his willingness to impose dictatorial measures on Christians and the opposition party in Egypt. Yet for some reason Barack Obama thinks that giving Morsi and his Muslim Brotherhood allies newer, highly advanced fighter jets and the most lethal of modern tanks on the battlefield will lead to stability in the region.

This is liberal foreign policy at its most inept. President Morsi was recently quoted as saying, “Dear brothers, we must not forget to nurse our children and grandchildren on hatred towards those Zionists and Jews, and all those who support them. They must be nursed on hatred. The hatred must continue.”

Morsi has referred to our Israeli allies as “blood-suckers … warmongers, the descendants of apes and pigs … We must all realize that resistance (read as “terrorism) is the only way to liberate the land of Palestine.” Last October, Morsi was also shown on Egyptian television fervent in prayer in a mosque as the cleric chanted, “Oh Allah, destroy the Jews and their supporters. Oh Allah, disperse them, rend them asunder. Oh Allah, demonstrate your might and greatness upon them. Show us your omnipotence, oh Lord.”

If the United States of America endorses a man like this with a gift of our most modern weapons of war, what do we stand for? How can Israel ever believe they can count on our support in the future? And what message are we sending to other Islamists in the Muslim Brotherhood around the world who would like to see Israel extinguished and the United States left in the dustbin of history?

It is the height of madness to give radical Islamists – who openly hate our allies – new and more powerful weapons with which they could potentially destroy them. Special Operations Speaks condemns the Obama Administration’s decision to follow through on the deal in the strongest terms, and urges all patriotic Americans to join us in demanding this deal stop before any more jets and tanks fall into the hands of extremists.

Special Operations Speaks describes itself as a nationwide organization led by highly decorated special operation forces (Special Forces, Air Commandos, SEALs, Rangers, Marine Recon) veterans. Among its stated goals is a commitment “to illuminate the failed operational security environment of the Administration and to provide the public with accurate information about these repeated releases of highly classified information.” The group’s website is specialoperationsspeaks.com.

    You all do know who this "Navy Seal" is, right? I hope that having been a Seal 50 years ago doesn't automatically make you some superhero, or smarter than your average 70+ year old retiree. He is a dedicated "birther" living in the fantasy-land of conspiracies and simple hatred of Obama. There is a sub-culture out there that spends all of their time nodding at each other and screaming that the sky is falling. They live to picked up by sites such as this as if they had real credentials or meaningful input. He is just another of these.

    How does this truly anti-American who calls himself seazen (rhymes with treason) get through the day living in this country that he hates so much?! Obama can do no wrong, eh treason? Selling out to the Muslim bruddahhood, sending our economy headlong into the sewer, nothing this obamination does bothers your liberal marxist soul does it? Each day, in my opinion, you grow more pitiful and marginal. Soon, not even the worst of your drivel will inspire response from any of us. Skipping over what is sure to be your hate-filled rhetoric will be the best antidote to your poison pen. You are a lost soul.

      Good réponse! Has many of the gold star words and phrases: "anti-American", hate, "selling out", Muslim, "sending our economy headlong into the sewer", "obomination", "liberal marxist", "pitiful and marginal", "drivel," "hate-filled rhetoric", "poison pen", "lost soul". Since my comments seem to really get your knickers in a knot, it probably would be a good thing for you to ignore them.

    I'm a little surprised the Captain didn't also add that this equipment being sent to Egypt are export versions. The F-16s will not have the targeting capability or performance options anywhere near what the Israeli jets have. The Egyptians already have many F-16s and there is some advantage to having us being able to control as much of their military equipment supply as we can. Would you rather have the Russians get back into that area with control of the Suez Canal? The M1A1 Abrams tanks are in the same boat. They also do not have the total battle packages in them. The Israelis also add their own electronics that is so good, we use some of it.

    We exercise influence over the Egyptian Military by training them, which we do, and supplying them. The Egyptians have no advantage in going to war with Israel. Israel is doing a nice job of isolating itself in the world by taking Arab land in the West Bank and East Jerusalem. Until Israel talks with her neighbors and gets real about peace, I wouldn't put a lot of stock in that country's future. The longer it takes for the Middle East countries to talk, the harder the solition is going to be for Israel.

    Allies assist each other. We protect Israel with our veto in the UN. I don't think the US will go to war over the nukes problem in Iran just to save Israel. Our dog in that fight ain't that big.

    A little about the "Treason" name calling. Just because someone doesn't agree with you, doesn't mean their beliefs are treasonous. Name calling generally is a fustration response. When you don't have the facts, just call people names. If you are loud enough, maybe some people will believe you.

    Look at the lure closely before you bite, you might get hooked into doing or saying something stupid. Just saying…

  • MJNellett

    Name calling seems to be the patented response from the loony left. If you disagree with ANY part of the Progressive agenda, talking points, or fiction filled debates, then you are a "right wing extremist, radical, nut job, and probably a Nazi to boot. " You're right Ted, frustration does result in name calling on our part, but things like MORON, MENTAL MIDGET, and LYING Scumbag, seem to aptly describe our "Progressive friends", so why not?

    Happy to know who the seal is. I was just abot to say shut the FXXX up. Now that I know he's a seal from 50 years ago he needs to reevaluate the situation times have changed I don't think people understand time does not stand still.

    Putting stock in Israel's future is something you will have to see I suppose. Gods hand is on that country whether you want to believe it or not and its going to be so much fun to watch the destruction of All of Israel's enemies! If America doesn't wake up she'll be in it too…yeah I'm just a simpleminded Christian and I thank God that I am!
