remembers the attacks on the Twin Towers, the Bush
administration continues to fund various Arab states with
billions of U.S. tax dollars.
needs to be noted that it was the U.S. government that years ago
provided Iran with the Tehran Research Reactor and the
weapons-grade uranium needed to power the facility-fuel that
could still be used to help produce nuclear arms. Yes, Martha,
you heard right. It was the U.S. government that supplied Iran
with a major nuclear facility-the same facility that President
Bush now insists must be destroyed.
appears that government leaders learn nothing from the past.
recently, the Bush administration announced plans to sell $4.6
billion worth of arms to several Arab states including the
United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Jordan, Oman, and Saudi Arabia.
Military equipment listed for transfer to the Muslim states
include UH-60M Black Hawk helicopter gunships, AH-64 Apache
helicopters, M113A1 armored personnel carriers, Javelin
anti-tank missiles, and modernized MA1 Abrams tanks outfitted
with such things as air-conditioning and infrared sights for
commanders and gunners.
paradoxical is the fact that the Bush administration recently
offered citizens of Saudi Arabia scholarships to study aviation
in the United States. Can you believe this?
20, 2006, World Net Daily reported, "According to the Saudi
publication Arab News, majors related to the airline transport
industry are eligible, including communications, electrical and
computer engineering, computer science, systems analysis, air
traffic control and flight safety.
the 9-11 hijackers are known to have been trained at aviation
schools in the U.S.
program arose from an agreement in April by President Bush and
then-Crown Prince Abdullah aimed at improving relations between
the two nations."
relations? How in the world could relations be any cozier? How
many invitations have Saudi leaders been given to Bush's
Crawford, Texas ranch? How many times have we seen Bush and
Saudi sheiks strolling hand in hand down Lover's Lane? Give me a
is, relations between Saudi mega-corporations, Saudi king-pins
(including Osama Bin Laden) and the Bush dynasty are well
researched. As an example, just Google Bush and the Carlyle
Group, and see what pops up. Try it!
think that after decades of meddling with other nations'
internal affairs, decades of propping up two-bit despots only to
later have to send American soldiers to fight and die trying to
depose the same people, and decades of sending billions and
billions of hard earned tax dollars all over the world, the
American people would have had enough! Apparently not, because
our government still does it and the American people continue to
put up with it.
the U.S. government continues to send billions of dollars in
foreign aid all over the planet to people and nations that, for
the most part, hate our guts and do everything they can to make
our lives miserable, our veterans have to fight like junk-yard
dogs just to get the medical care they deserve and were
I'm not a
proponent of expecting the federal government to fund every
local and state project, program, or even emergency, but think
what billions of dollars marked for foreign aid could do right
here in the good old U.S. of A. Better yet, think what could
happen if the federal government simply got out of our wallets
and off our backs altogether!
next time you hear President Bush talk about the Twin Towers,
national security, and the war on terrorism, remember those
billion-dollar sales to Arab states in the Middle East and keep
telling yourself it all makes sense.
