    Destabilization does appear to be the policy.
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    haha
    Only Obama ( not Congress -despite a few words by Patrick Leahy) decided on this course of action. While US law prohibits support to a junta gov't, it is conveniently ignored, in Egypt's case.

    Amnesty International, and a few human rights groups pressed for the suspension of US military aid/sales ; but they are not in governmental positions.

    Obama's foreign policy is a total failure.

    It was, 30 years ago. This is common knowledge. Now, if you would just peruse history since at least 2000, you will find policy changed when the previous one did not work. If the goal was destabilization:

    There would have been no rebuilding in Iraq.
    The US would not have entered Libya only at the request of the UN.
    The US would have bombed Syria and left it to the dogs.
    There would be no rebuilding in Afghanistan.

    Accept reality, it does not jive with your propaganda.

    This was predicted back in August of last year when the Egyptians observed that Vladimir Putin was playing chess while Obama was playing checkers.

    Egypt's a mess, we're just wasting time with them. They hate us, anyway.

    That is true, Egyptians have always hated Americans. The only reason American tourist were able sail down the Nile, look at the pyramids and all of the poverty for the past few decades was because of President Mubarak who protected the American and Western European tourist.

    Obama threw Mubarak under the bus and there won't be too many American tourist visiting Egypt in the foreseeable future.

    Lets not forget Mubarak played a key role in keeping the peace in the Middle east, he protected Israels southern flank.
