    Mighty close to what I was thinking: How long will it be before the new guy is less popular than the old guy.

    Hard to keep people happy when you have very little money, and Egypt is a poor country with little to sell.

    This arises from government corruption. Wherever you have cheap labor, you should be able to build a business base. The government hasn't done anything to encourage that. No reason you can't build things in Egypt. You can build them in India, China and a ton of other places.

    Do you think that the USA should unilaterally renounce the obligations that it assumed in connection with the Egypt-Israel Peace Treaty back in 1979?

    President Obama did not sign that treaty.

    I would actually have no problem with that. Why should we give a country money or be paid not to wage war?

    How about if the USA agreed to give that country money in connection with a treaty?

    Is the USA'S word worth anything?

    I seem to recall Egypt fighting on the USA's side back in 1991 against Iraq, Remember that?

    Theirs is worth nothing. Why should we be the good guy all the time?
    Furthermore, why should we continue to spend ourselves into a hole. To hand them money?
