    Which has nothing to do with what was stated.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    maybe barack should tie up the half B in a bow and send an apology card with it

    after all, morsi is demanding

    Morsi urges aid, end of Israeli occupation, limits on free speech | The Daily Caller

    today, hillary sends 45M to the syrian rebels, how many of whom, like mr qumu in benghazi, are only "allies of sorts," far more dedicated to jihad than anything decent or democratic

    and that's just today, what'll tomorrow bring

    ie, here we go again
    It's interesting the US Govt would rather an unstable factional country than the current regime.

    The bet must be the new power groups will be more US friendly. It's a big gamble.

    The money is not aid, its money being spent to provide economic stability in region to safeguard our primary strategic interest, the Suez canal. It also will buy better relations with Israel. Foreign policy just like everything else in life, if you want something, you have to pay for it. The idea that we would sacrifice our national interests in Egypt out of sheer pettiness for an act that wasn't condoned by the Egyptian government is pathetic.

    today:

    US Embassy in Cairo issued a terrorist threat warning on Friday for American citizens living in Egypt.

    The diplomatic mission stated on its website that it has “credible information suggesting terrorist interest in targeting US female missionaries in Egypt.”

    the brotherhood certainly doesn't believe in the human rights of women, gays, followers of alternate faiths...

    so let's apologize

    and send em half a B (which we don't have)

    are you sure obama and hillary know what they're doing?

    Any aid we give to a group to help them rise in power because it is believed that they will be friendly to us is labeled as meddling in the internal politics of a sovereign nation. Just giving money to a country just means it will be used or stolen by the group in power, and will help to keep them in power.

    You seem to think that "aid" means we are giving food to poor or something. This money is being given to the Egyptian government for the express purpose of keeping them in power.

    The bulk of the money goes to the Egyptian military to maintain stability and its worth giving aid to Egypt beacuse Egypt has a peace treaty with Israel.
