NEWS: Air Force – Huge Weapons Sale To Saudi Arabia

December 29, 2011

The Air Force apparently let slip that a long talked about arms deal with Saudi Arabia is a done deal.

Stephen Trimble at The Dew Line reports this photo was posted to the Air Force website at 3:31 a.m. on Dec. 28, several hours before the AP wrote the deal was “poised” to be announced by the White House (via @JimmySky).

Within two hours of Trimble’s post the Air Force pulled the image and shut the page.

The deal will include 84 new F-15s and upgrades for 70 more worth a total of $29.4 billion.

  • Economists Finally Get One Thing Right in 2011: Obama a Failure

    Thu Dec 29 08:33:59 2011 · by Kaslin · 2 replies ^ | December 29, 2011 | John Ransom
    Not that we needed any reminding from economists that Obama’s economic plan has sucked wind since inception, but a new survey released by the AP says that a large majority of economists polled rate Obama’s economic performance fair-to-poor. So, the folks who told us at the beginning of the year to expect 3 percent GDP growth have bailed on Obama now that he’s screwed up their magical predictions for the year.There must be year-end bonuses involved for them.  I’m not saying that all economists are Obamanauts, I’m just saying that of the ones polled by the AP, it’s likely none…

    The Economist ^ | Dec 31st 2011 | from the print edition | Editorial
    CHRISTIANITY is growing almost as fast as humanity itself, but its 2.2 billion adherents cannot count on safety in numbers. That is partly because the locus of the world’s largest religion is shifting to hotter (in several senses) parts of the world. According to a report published by the Pew Forum in December, the Christian share of the population of sub-Saharan Africa has soared over the past century, from 9% to 63%. Meanwhile, the think-tank says, the Christian proportion of Europeans and people in the Americas has dropped, respectively, from 95% to 76% and from 96% to 86%. But moving…

  • Obama’s Uganda Gambit Serving Soros

    American Thinker ^ | 10/18/2011 | Ed Lasky
    Journalist Aaron Klein has an interesting take on Barack Obama’s surprising decision to send troops into Uganda to battle a rebel army.  The genesis of the idea may have begun at the George Soros-funded International Crisis Group, one of the “think tanks” that Soros uses to promote policies that benefit him.  In this case, the ICG recommended last year that America deploy military forces to Uganda.  This move prompted questions since the rebel group did not pose a threat to American interests. But whose interests might be served by defeating the rebel group? George Soros — a major Obama backer.
