This guy really believes he's king. Seriously.

Against the law? Screw it! I'm King Barack I. I'll just appoint another czar to be in charge of spending U. S. money on foreign goods for other countries.

Well, in actuality, he is. What are we (the collective we) going to do about it? Not a damn thing. Tomorrow we will go to our jobs, pay our taxes, and be as docile as teddy bears.

This is an electorate that recognized his failures, and trampling on our rights and... Re-elected him. We (the collective we) aren't going to stopping g him, we're rewarding him.

I mean hell, if he is going to spend the money anyways, might as well spend it on something that has nothing to do with the American citizen.


Sadly enough, there is a lot of truth in this

You missed the part where Russian manufacturers kicks a shite ton of money into Organizing for Acce$$, this would fulfill step 4 to make step 6 a certainty.

As was mentioned earlier, the Afghans probably have extensive familiarity with the platform (piloting, maintenance, spare parts, etc).

From Forbes:

quote:

Russia’s Mi-17 appears to be right aircraft for the missions in Afghanistan. The copter has a long history in Afghanistan. It was used in the USSR-Afghanistan war back in the 1980s.

There are around 20,000 Mi-17 helicopters in circulation, including in Iran, Thailand, Malaysia, Colombia, Pakistan and Venezuela. India has over 130 of them.
Russia has been supplying Afghanistan with Mi-17s under a NATO contract as part of a U.S.-run procurement deals.

The U.S. is no stranger to this flying whale.

It gave four Mi-17 helicopters to Pakistan to assist its anti-terrorism activity in June 2009. The U.S. Navy delivered four Mi-17s to the Afghan National Army Air Corps in September of that same year. Ten Mi-17-V5 helicopters were delivered to the Afghan Air Force (AAF) by December 2010.

Do you also believe you can't defend an illegal act?

You people don't deserve liberty if you do.

Of COURSE you can defend an illegal act.


BUT JUST BECAUSE YOU CAN DEFEND AN ILLEGAL ACT DOESN'T MEAN ALL ILLEGAL ACTS ARE DEFENSIBLE.


Posters on this board wouldn't have shite to say if they couldn't deny the antecedent or affirm the consequent. Jeezus, help us.

BHP, without a doubt, all he needs is a post-it note pad to convert guages to english, then hop on the internet and download the English language PDF version of the operating manual. Give him a six pack of his favorite beer and a relaxing evening to digest the said manual and bingo BHP is dual qual'd in multiple airframes. The man without a doubt has serious skills!

There's got to be a politician or U.S. contractor in the mix that's getting a cut. Why would they "need" helicopters in the first place?

Just look take a look see where tons of money have been shipped by the Oboes in the last four years, and at the failure rate of companies given massive loans by them. Need a car manufacturing facility in Uzbeckistan you got it by the virtuous doings of Chevrolet(GM).
