Obama buying 690 million worth of Russian choppers for Afghan air force

quote:

Apparently America has too many jobs so Obama will be spending taxpayer money to support Russia’s defense industry on behalf of Afghanistan. And he’s doing so over the bipartisan objections of Congress from both the right and left and a ban on buying them written into the NDAA. The US Department of Defense said Thursday it plans to sidestep a Congressional ban to purchase 30 helicopters from Russian state-owned defense firm Rosoboronexport, despite objections from US lawmakers who allege that the firm has equipped the Syrian government to commit brutal crimes against civilians. The 2013 National Defense Authorization Act, approved by Congress last year, includes an amendment that prohibits financial contracts between the United States and Rosoboronexport, except when the Secretary of Defense determines that such arrangements are in the interest of national security. The contract totals $690 million, most of which would go to the Russian arms maker, he added.

This is obviously what he meant when he told Dmitry Medvedev he would have "more flexibility" after the election.....

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.

I surely hope every American that voted this guy back in office is proud of themselves today and every other day they are alive.

I resent you for making me defend him, but he's right on this one. They have a history or using Russian equiment, meaning they have at least some training on their operation and maintenance, and probably some parts on hand.

We give them AK 47's made out of the US, why not choppers?

This is very upsetting to me. Are any of our resident Obama apologists going to comment on this action?

What's next Obama and congress all spend a measly 14 million to study why chinese hookers get std's if they drink vodka v. whiskey?

How about all of us non-progressives get together on an island and write Obama for a couple billion for aid to our island? We can claim minority status and say we did not qualify for the good DMV,state,city jobs because of our paleness ethnicity. We could also earnestly ask for a couple billion to study why I eat coconuts before the bananas?

Except for it's illegal based on provisions contained within the NDAA.

no need to worry, you cant defend an illegal action.
