RCP | Rand Paul: Why send F-16s and tanks to Muslim Brotherhood?

Senator Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) discusses the Senate voting against his amendment to ban giving Egypt F-16 fighter jets and tanks on FOX News.

"This amendment would have stopped the transfer of F-16s and Abrams tanks to Egypt," Sen. Paul explained. "You’ve seen those pictures of tens if not hundreds of thousands of people rioting in the street. Does that look like a stable country to you?"

"Combine that with some of the comments from President Morsi that were translated to say that Jews were bloodsuckers and descendants of apes and pigs. It doesn’t sound like a country we should be sending our most advanced weapons to," Paul explained on the Thursday afternoon broadcast of "Your World" on the FOX News Channel.

"I don’t understand the other side," Paul said. "The other side up here, they’re just so used to doing one thing, they used to having unlimited money. They’re used to the fact that they think we should buy our friends. They just keep doing the same thing, but I think it’s wrong."
