Have they checked the Russian airbase?

$715 million?  What's that, a couple of trucks and an air conditioner?

About 200 of these:

They're squeezing the belt now that they have to hand over cash for a wall that blows over.

Soon to be used against U.S troops in Iraq.

Only losing track of 715 million worth of equipment seems to be really low compared to the actual number. Billions in equipment and cash have vanished in the fog of war.

For them, practically a rounding error.  But funny enough no one asks how they're going to pay for it.  That's only gets asked when we want to spend money in ways that help average Americans.

As someone who works for the government this doesn't exactly shock me.

This can happen with they up and leave one day with no planning and very light packing.

Trump just gave some Russian arms dealer $750M
//probably in exchange for $200k "campaign donation"

Get Clifford Stoll on the case.  If he can determine what happened to a measly 75¢ then surely this would be a cakewalk for him.

Did you ask Eric Prince? I'm pretty sure he and the rest of his merc buddies have a good idea where it went.

The Kurds took them a whey?
 
2020-02-19 11:09:49 PM  
Nothing additional cuts to food stamps can't fix.

This is Trumps Fast and Furious scandal. Hope it sticks.

I personally have misplaced $715 million in arms and light military equipment around the house, so I say cut them some slack.

Sadly smarted

Oh, don't worry. Another tax cut for the rich and we'll get that money back in no time.

...wait, they're weapons? Are they killing brown people? Guess we're good.

This has been going on since 2001. Probably every war.

Some Trump crony is probably auctioning it to terrorists and pocketing the proceeds.

That's the kinds of ethics and morals right wingers have. As proven by: literally everything that's happened in the last 50 years. They're the tainted ones. The worst of all people.
 
2020-02-19 11:47:17 PM  
Maybe try looking in those craters we made bombing our own bases.

It's what happens when your party decides that 'deliberately courting shiatty people' (starting with racist Dixiecrats) is an acceptable strategy. Eventually, everyone remotely decent is pushed away, and only the shiatty people remain.

Unfortunately, due to decades of propaganda and shiatty parenting, there are enough shiatty people to be a real problem.

I'm sure cutting food stamps and Medicare funds will balance everything out.

Sure.. it wasn't the fault of the 'good' Syrian rebels or the 'bad' Syrian rebels. Yep.. it was just Republicans. Sounds legit.

Was I supposed to be keeping track of the tanks? Because no one told me that!

Glad you agree. Without Republicans, we wouldn't be in Syria in the first place.

Sorry to tell you all, but Timber Sycamore started under Obama's first term, and was ended by Trump in 2017.

Google it. That's where our $715 mil went.

 See, the real waste is that I saw Shaniqua buying a Sprite with her SNAP card. If you don't see how it's killing us a nation, I don't.know what to tell you.

Anyone check Erik Prince's pockets yet? Maybe his sister is just holding the stuff for him?
 
2020-02-20 6:59:16 AM  
This is just what they lost on the anti-ISIS fight. Don't forget the other billion they threw away beforehand trying to overthrow Assad by training "moderate Islamists"... most of whom took their equipment and joined ISIS at the first opportunity when it originally started to expand.

I said right wingers, not republicans.  Not all right wingers are republicans, but all republicans are right wingers. And all right wingers are shiat garbage.

Compared to the $5 billion cut up for scrap in Afghanistan.  At least that stuff did not wind up in enemy hands as opposed to all the weapons ISIS captured from the Iraqi army.

Two canteens and a bayonet?  With full mil spec certification.

I made these some time ago as a joke.  Did someone slip some acid in my Grape-Nuts this morning?

I'm shocked an organization that had to take a $6.4 billion write-down on shiatty accounting just misplaced $715 million in equipment somewhere.

Not at all obscure. But it shows that we are both old.
