WASHINGTON — The Pentagon on Thursday said it had no plans to halt weapons deliveries to Egypt in coming months despite a popular revolt against President Hosni Mubarak’s rule.
While the US administration was examining its economic and military aid to Egypt in light of political upheaval there, military assistance had not been suspended, a spokesman said.
In addition to military aid the United States give Egypt a little over $1.3 or $1.5 billion in cash nobody really know how much – and yet they threaten to behead our journalist.
Seems all evidence point to Mubarak bringing in his thugs with one hand while telling the world he is going to step down with the other – now I ask you what dictator has ever stepped down voluntarily? Anyone? Oh many have been forced out, but I can’t think of a single one that just got tired of absolute power and gave it up – I can’t think of a single one and Obama still hasn’t figured out how to handle this thug yet – in fact I’d say his entire administration is is clueless. Obama stated his support of the Muslim Brotherhood, thinks they’re a swell bunch – now he’s walking/running that back just a little. As the Muslim Brotherhood are fundamentalist Islamic with multiple ties to terrorist organizations like Hamas, Hezbollah et. al. with leadership that have supported terrorism.
Now here is a bit of a shocker…
I spent much of yesterday interviewing American experts on the region—including two Brookings Institution scholars who are experts on the Muslim Brotherhood—and was reassured over and over that the organization has reformed and does not seek to establish a fundamentalist state. One claimed that Brotherhood officials have said they view Copts as equal citizens.
My relative laughed at this. He says when Brotherhood members have been asked about how they would treat Christians they are vague. When asked about whether they would nationalize the banks, they are vague. Even one of the Brookings scholars told me that the Brotherhood would probably segregate the sexes. This is far from a secular group.
So even the liberals are starting to see the Islamic nutbags and the Muslim Brotherhood are a rising problem – about time Kristen.
