    President Barack Obama has authorized a Saudi project to supply aerospace systems to the country of Syria in what that country is now seeing as the suspension of U.S. sanctions.

    Government officials have announced that the President has already directed the Commerce Department to approve the exportation of U.S. components to Syria's fleet of Boeing 747 aircraft. A defense contractor for the Saudi Arabian Government would supply and install the components in the aging Syrian aircrafts.

    Although the Commerce Department is denying any such approval from the White House, the Boeing Corporation has already acknowledged that Commerce approved an export license for Syria on February 2nd.

    The approval of the Commerce Department has marked an end from the nearly five years of United States sanctions against the country of Syria during the Bush Administration.

    On December 12, 2003, President George W. Bush had signed the Syria Accountability Act which in short denied everything to the country of Syria with the exception of food and humanitarian aid. Since Syria in the past has used passenger jets to ferry weapons from Iran to Hezbollah in Lebanon, all of these things had been denied the Syrian Government.

    Syria has reported many several United States measures to improve relations between the two countries since January 20, 2009. On February 15, 2009, the Syrian Ambassador Imad Mastafa had acknowledged $500,000 dollars from the United States Treasury Department had been donated to a Syrian Charity.

    I can already visualize it and the vision pisses me off. When this olive branch effort fails, and it will, watch for the moon faced expressions of disbelief on all the liberal morons responsible for this. Concessions to an enemy DO NOT WORK. To the islamofacists, this is viewed as weakness ripe for exploittion.

    Syria will only grow more bold in harming US interests. Liberals never learn.:mad:

    I'm a staff puke in a training support brigade. I won't go out the door for at least another year, but if I do, it will be after my promotion board, so it will be as a BDE XO or S3 or a BN CDR, but since my current branch is LG (for Logistics Goof off, although I refer to myself as recovering Cav:D), it will be some sort of support or sustainment unit. Thanks for the kind thoughts, though. I'll pass them on to the next BCT that comes through. They're the ones who will need them.

    I'm sure coming from US aerospace companies to help "Stimulate" their slacking businesses.

    Next we can export fighter aircraft tech, and then missile.

    Then when they hit Israel, we can act all shocked about it and question where they got the tech.

    No, they'll simply express outrage at Israel's response.

    " aid and comfort " Didn't that use to mean something about a hundred years ago. What was the word?

    I know it started with a "T".
