U.S. military has already bought 31 units of Mi-17 and spent 648 million dollars for this deal. Yet, the Pentagram had no intention to stop there and was planning to buy 10 more of these Russian helicopters in the next year. American Brigadier General...

American Brigadier General Michael Bauer is the opponent in this dispute with the Senators. He believes that the refusal from the purchase of Russian helicopters will significantly delay the date of creation of army aviation in Afghanistan, which will drag things way up to 2018.
Interesting?
Is this something, we should know?

MILITARY ORDERS- Go kill that family, YES SIR.

Go stab your bayonet through the heart of THEM- YES SIR.

This is what drinking flouridated water does to the human brain.
Fluoride was developed during WW2 by the Nazis for use as a mind control drug. Research proved that Fluoride, given over time in small doses permanently altered the brain in ways affecting personality, creating a more docile, more easily controlled individual. I have not been able to find one reliable study that proves Fluoride actually helps prevent cavities. What I did find out was that on the average children living in communities with fluoridated water have lower IQ's. The infant death rate is higher in cities with fluoridated water. Kansas City, MO reported a 13% increase in infant death rate after the first full year of fluoridation. Additionally fluoridated communities have higher rates of cancer, bone, heart and neurological problems. WHY IS 60% OF THE WATER IN THE USA DELIBERATELY FLUORIDATED? WHY ARE WE ALLOWING OUR WATER TO BE FLUORIDATED?

Lols, Samantha, I appreciate all your efforts, your keen, lols, investigations and the great yob you are doing on awakening people.
2018 is just an option. We might have the chance to avoid. See Cary's videolink or the pic of the US Marine in Afghanistan, sich, tired, burned out. They lost the reason to fight. Talibans have upper hand, re-conquering one province after the other, US Marines experience a dramatic situation. All their strategies on batter Taliban faild.
And it gets worse. Day by day Taliban gets stronger, they have every back.up of their own people, have the knowledge of the ground. How would you do, if a foreign force invades your country? Would you start peddling your thumbs?
NOT YOU, SAMANTHA!
These Taliban are not more, not less defenders of their homeland. They are doing NOTHING different than french resistance fighters did, when the germans invaded. Freedom fighters.
And the US allies too, slowly finding out, they could do nothing against it.
It becomes a desaster, no matter how many 4-Stars Genarals Obama exchanges.
Taliban seize one strategical position after the other back to homeland...
Did you know?
Does US Mainstream report it.

Well this just shows the power of the military!!!!!!!!!!!!! They can make decisions to buy these helicopters from the Russians without having to ASK FIRST!!!!!!!!!!!!! And who authorized this sale?????????? Who opens the purse strings of the American people without the president and the senate's confirmation??????????? You all need to tell this Brigadier General Bauer that he needs to step down from his post. It is time to begin investigating the military!!!!! And why the hell are we still over there???? This war will never be won -- the Russians could not conquer them and it is time to bring our young people home before any more are killed in the name of WHAT???? Afghanistan has discovered untold wealth and they do not need us in their country anymore. The US has enough problems of it's own and needs to deal with them. Stop printing up more money because the military says they need more troops there!!!!!!!!!! The US military has been too powerful for too many years, with secret deals lining the pockets of interlocking interests. Tell your senators that you want to get out of this country and concentrate on your own.

Well they are hiding this cause Obama said that he was going to pull troops out next year, and end the war soon. If citizens hear about 2018 they are going to flip. Both my Cousin and her Husband have served in both Afgan and Iraq and my Cousin might head out one more time. It is the Troops job, yes, they are trained for War but if you are confused on why your fighting, then its not fair. Why is the U.S. keep importing weapons materials from other contries when they preach to everyone to buy local. I know that its not apart of the story but,Like the New San Francisco bridge the metal is not fron the U.S. they imported it to save money.

When war becomes peace,
When concepts and realities are turned upside down,
When fiction becomes truth and truth becomes fiction.
When a global military agenda is heralded as a humanitarian endeavor,
When the killing of civilians is upheld as "collateral damage",
When those who resist the US-NATO led invasion of their homeland are categorized as "insurgents" or "terrorists".
When preemptive nuclear war is upheld as self defense.
When advanced torture and "interrogation" techniques are routinely used to "protect peacekeeping operations",
When tactical nuclear weapons are heralded by the Pentagon*) as "harmless to the surrounding civilian population"
When three quarters of US personal federal income tax revenues are allocated to financing what is euphemistically referred to as "national defense"
When the Commander in Chief of the largest military force on planet earth is presented as a global peace-maker,
When the Lie becomes the Truth.

We are the crossroads of the most serious crisis in modern history.
The US in partnership with NATO and Israel has launched a global military adventure which, in a very real sense, threatens the future of humanity.

Remember Afghanistan has been at war for 30 years, and neither the Soviets who were here before the Taliban nor the Taliban put people through school. So education was not prized. - Col. Ferrari on July 8 during a Department of Defense (DOD) press briefing.
And, besides, Jaqueline, they have tribal society. It differs completely from our westerly one.
The worst of all: Do we understand these people? (Beyond Mainstream?)
:
Do they want democracy? (Or, what we understand to be demo cracy?)

Are we obliged to provide democracy for Afghan people?

Could war heads decide such misanthropic plans?
& the next thing - did anyone of this decition makers ask american population on this deal, which has not be the first one to assign Russia with delivery?
& would America NOT have sufficient choppers for killing Talibal people, which are, infact nothing else then homeland defenders?
(Would french resistance fighters also been considered Terrorists, when they fought the german invaders?)

But, maybe the worst on this story is... The helis are on stock in the USA, only needed to be adapted adequately for the purpose. (armoured troup transports, observing, killing, perhaps)
&! it is not Russia, making the helicopters, it is CHINA!

Hi, John Bauer
This is the second time the Penta Gram has gone outside the USA to purchase aircraft. The first was when airbus wanted to take the business from Boeing. (Boeing is a huge american employer).
Wel, if it was not for the jobs, my friend.
So it is not only buying helicopters, trying 2 times, having bought 1 time, also an other Pentagram story should be considered:
Here is an other investigative article on the russian choppers scandal:

(Jan. 7) - In December 2007, the Pentagon gave a no-bid contract worth more than $300 million to ARINC, a Maryland company, to buy 22 Russian helicopters that were urgently needed for Iraq's nascent military. Two years later, even after all of the money has been paid out, none of the helicopters have been delivered, the costs have increased and it's unclear when, if ever, the helicopters will be delivered. Now, the Pentagon's quiet purchase of nearly a billion dollars worth of Russian helicopters for Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan is drawing fire from Congress. Democrats and Republicans are is questioning the military's rationale for buying the foreign equipment and blasting the price paid for aircraft that are traditionally cheaper to purchase and maintain.And cheaper may not be the case now. Contracts obtained through the Freedom of Information Act show considerable difference between the base price of the helicopters from Russia and the price paid through the U.S. government to ARINC, the prime contractor. The Russian subcontractor, Airfreight Aviation, offered the Russian helicopters for about $7.9 million each. ARINC then sold the helicopters, with Western modifications, for a unit price of between about $12.5 million and $13.5 million. Delivery delays increased the price even more."We find it disturbing that the cost per unit has gone up significantly compared to nine years ago," a Senate aide familiar with the issue told Sphere.Sen. Chris Dodd, D-Conn., blasted the deal last month in a letter to Defense Secretary Robert Gates. Dodd complained that the Russian equipment was bought in a way that "rewards foreign companies with single-source contracts" and does not provide adequate oversight of the deals. "In sum, the United States has spent over $800 million of taxpayer funds on Russian airframes without ever conducting an analysis of alternatives or considering other airframes for the mission," Dodd wrote. The letter was co-signed by Rep. Rosa DeLauro, D-Conn.Connecticut is home to American helicopter manufacturer Sikorsky.Richard Shelby, a Republican senator from Alabama, another state with a substantial helicopter industrial base, demanded in a separate letter that the Pentagon stop purchasing Russian helicopters until a thorough analysis could be conducted. He also criticized the Iraqi deal, noting that "the $345 million U.S./Iraqi acquisition contract is nearly a year behind schedule and the cost of airframes has skyrocketed."The Pentagon has acknowledged difficulties associated with buying Russian equipment, but defends the purchases for Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan as the most appropriate aircraft for these countries, which have experience operating Russian helicopters. Pentagon officials speaking on background have said the delays and cost increases are the partly the result of getting the U.S. State Department to agree to allow the integration of Western equipment on foreign aircraft, which requires sharing technical details with the Russians. ARINC, in the meantime, has been given a contract for an additional 10 helicopters for Afghanistan. Those helicopters also have not been delivered yet.The Pentagon's policy on buying Russian helicopters is complicated by another factor: the U.S has sanctions placed on Russian's arms export agency, Rosoboronexport, for allegedly selling weapons to Iran. Those sanctions, in theory, prevent the U.S. government from buying any military equipment from Russia.To get around the sanctions, the Pentagon sought and received a waiver specifically allowing it to buy Russian helicopters, creating the bizarre situation whereby the U.S. government is exempting the only major military equipment it buys from Russia.Buying Russian helicopters has always been a tricky business for the U.S. government. During the Cold War, the U.S. quietly bought Russian equipment, including helicopters, in order to test the Soviets' military capabilities. Such purchases often required dealing with gunrunners and arms smugglers.The CIA has also bought Russian helicopters to operate for its own clandestine air wing, including for its 2001 Jawbreaker operations in Afghanistan that helped bring down the Taliban. Two people involved in those helicopter purchases an Army official and a contractor were brought to trial and sent to prison in 2007 in connection with that deal.Over the past several years, many of the Pentagon's purchases were handled through an obscure office in Huntsville, Ala., known as the Threat Systems Management Office, which specializes in obtaining foreign equipment for simulation. But as the contracts for Iraq and Afghanistan mounted, so did the problems.In one case, VIP Russian helicopters bought to transport Afghan President Hamid Karzai and equipped with flat-panel TVs and leather chairs...

Hello, Lin Penrose: Yes, anti Americal haunch... I have experienced a lot. lols. But to ask you honest? Is typical American (way of life) backing up Pentagram war policy? Ambushing one country after the other plundering natural resources? Who's next? Everything for the greed of a few corporations?
Maybe I should lauch an article on the corporations, benefiting US warmongering.
It is our brothers & sisters getting killed, mangled on both sides.
And the agenda of silence.
Thank you for your contribution right out of your heart!

You hit the nail.
This war cannot be won. Same as every war.
Better close all these 700+ military bases in foreign/allied countries, make the US Nation stronger. Also protecting US borders from illegal immigration.
Is that the point?

@ Tierney G. For Afghanistan TROOPS, positioned at location, defending US freedom & democracy... lols. The troop command was assigned with an own money printing machine. So, they ale able to print their own money on expenses for their own. Out of nothing. As usual.

It is a waiste of money for the American people who have to pay for it.

But it's a great gig for Halliburton and other INSIDER companies who have the no bid contracts to make everything war.

The prices are jacked up and the citizens are jacked up.

It's even stephan as long you continue to give congress the money to kill other innocent people at the same time your killing yourself.

Sounds like depopulation at work to me. Everybody looses, except for the few at the top counting their Billions of blood dollars at your expence.

America, now is at its verge of an cutting edge. Seemingly it will be - according to Breszinsky's doctrine be transformed into a 3rd world country. Still fighting wars, endlessly wars recruiting soldiers would become easy, as they would @ least have accomodation & food.
We should do, what we can to inform the people of this evil agenda.

Do you realize that the illegals in this country are costing us way more than these wars??? Wars are never good but sometimes have to be fought! Any time a war is fought in the name of freedom then it is a worthy war. Freedom is not free and America as a free nation is the leader. Any country that has been brainwashed as long as these two countries have know nothing except fighting. God knows they need to be lead in another direction!! There is headway being made over there and we need to support our troops no matter what..I do!!!

The use of Russian military helicopters is on the wish list of Black Ops...to disguise themselves from being recognized as U.S. forces.
It's all very well and good to tell people to Search YouTube - it's a marvel - but they have to know some of the Search Terms to get to the information New World Order, Council of Foreign Relation, Progressives, Illuminati.Bilderbergers
Mack D. Parsifal is just sourcing a lot of the same stuff used years back by Ron Paul supporters. While the videos may not be good quality that doesn't mean the information isn't.
I understand people don't want to be sucked in to extreme and radical scams that are terrorist propaganda. In a very real way...that's what you have been believing. You just haven't correctly identified the terrorists.

Bring our troops home now. Stop supporting Israel, they do not need the money except to continue to expand. Do not spend our tax dollars on more weapons. We need to turn this country around. We are not fighting for freedom. Our freedoms have lessened since 911. I am more afraid of my government than I was of Saddam Hussein. It does not matter what the American people want, as the insane are running the government. All the men who found deferments in the Vietnam war are proving their manhood by sending other peoples children to die for nothing. Imagine what this country could be like if we were not controlled by the Federal government and our tax dollars used for good.
