After Egypt ejected the US backed government, the army has been fighting its war on terror too. Now the White House wants to install jihadist extremists in another country that is fighting their war on terror. It's not unclear that the White House is interested in destabilising the region, as they have been rightly accussed.

Under orders from Gen. Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, the military leader governing Egypt since the Muslim Brotherhood's Mohammed Morsi was ousted, the Egyptian military is stepping up the fight against the growing coalition of Muslim Brotherhood, Al Qaeda and other radical Muslims gathering in the massive desert peninsula.
