our guys get their combat pay cut and a kenyan gets a $3700 scar with a $1,800 optic? free from uncle sugar!
go ask any vet missing a limb from combat action then about what HE thinks about this.
i really don't give a rats ass about kenyan SF types or what kind of gear they got-- it pisses me to no end that the USA bought them all that shit. more US $$$$-
obongo probably flooded kenya with aid since it is his home town and as a bribe to hide all those billions he looted from the treasury.
you think FN-HK ain't hooked into that big government $$$ plug in? -- we gave um AID $$$ and they buy whatever they want or whatever we want. i'll bet some congressman was well lubed for this one.
one thing i KNOW is that kenya didn't buy ONE SCAR. you can bet your ass we paid for those.
if the kenyan government was buying with their $ they be using AKs --very rusty and old ones at that.
if anybody thinks for a second the government of kenya bought that $$$$ shit is beyond me. --they bought it just like egypt bought those m1 tanks and f-16s --a self liquidate-ing loan. backed by the good old USA.
i am actually sort of shocked they even bothered to supply the SCARS --i suppose they had to let a few show up on TV to cover those millions/billions the loan was for.
otherwise the entire thing would just be another number.
