|Okay. Just be prepared not to play with American money.|
Mubarak's claim on power was trying to get growth to keep up with the Egyptian population and keeping the Egyptian Army happy. If Morsi wants to go on a new path, let him. But giving him aid is not going to mitigate harm it will be just feeding the problem. And Obama has to make that absolutely clear that the U.S. will cut off aid (we should have done that with the September 11, 2012 protests).
Egyptians governments using anger against Israel to deflect anger against the regime is an old tactic. China is doing the exact same thing with Japan, to cover for its economy slowing. We will never bail out China. We do live in interesting times.
I agree that peace is possible in the Middle East, but we are not going to get there with the way Barack Obama has set it up.
