Choppers for Afghan Air Force
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.
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 lawmakerswho allege that the firm has equipped the Syrian
government to commit brutal crimes against civilians.
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.
contract totals $690 million, most of which would go to the Russian arms maker,
from throwing almost $700 million to a company owned by the Russian government
at a time when Obama has taken a chainsaw to the United States military,
subsidizing the Russian defense industry helps it develop more weapons that
will be sold to America’s enemies.
money will help fund R&D for the next generation of weapons that an
American military dismantled by Obama will be facing on the battlefield.
was originally under US sanctions for doing business with Iran until the ban
was lifted. Rosoboronexport is still selling advanced weapons to Iran.
oh yeah, this was a no bid contract.
The Pentagon didn’t
solicit bids from any other company for the helicopters. That “seems just plain stupid,” says
Texas Senator John Cornyn, one of nine Republican and eight Democratic senators
pressing the U.S. Department of Defense to cancel the deal.
director of national security think tank GlobalSecurity.org, says Russia sold
Mi-17s to other countries during the Cold War, and that companies other than
Rosoboronexport should have secondhand models that could be refurbished: “The
notion that you can’t come up with a couple dozen of these puppies in the used
helicopter market is hard to believe.”
why bother when Barack is willing to be so flexible for Vladimir.
A bipartisan Congressional group
wrote a letter to Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel last week in which they
objected to the ongoing business relationship between the Russian arms company
and the Pentagon. “What is the national security justification of continuing business
with Rosoboronexport?” they asked in the letter. “Russia continues to transfer
weapons through Rosoboronexport to the regime of Bashar al-Assad in Syria,”
they continued. “Since the Syrian uprising began, Russia has continued to serve
as the Assad regime’s chief supplier of weapons, enabling the mass murder of
Syrian citizens at the hands of their own government.”
you’ve got John Cormyn and Rosa DeLauro on the same side, that’s as close to a
consensus that you can imagine.
