I appreciate Putin's assistance in Egypt. If the place turns into Syria and the government kills 100k and gasses the capital, then I was wrong. But I think Egypt will be ok, it needs arms contracts from somewhere (forgoing such is not an economic or developmental option) and it probably will not go Assad on us.No Egyptian stamps please. I heard the new ones will have pictures of Putin.
blahblahblahThe Arab Spring stamps are past their expiration date. Ask the CIA to give refunds .
Heya Eorhn that's what the minister of Egypt is talking about.
Egypt: FM - Russia-Egypt 2+2 Talks Allow Coordinating Positions On Int'l, Regional Issues
"Russian hospitality is sufficient reason as it is for this visit, but I would like also to note that this format of talks involving the foreign and defense ministers reflects fully positions of negotiating parties on regional and international issues," Fahmy said.
Fahmy noted that Egypt and Russia have many issues, which should be discussed at talks on Thursday, including international problems, primarily the situation in the Middle East as well as different aspects of bilateral relations, including ties in trade and economic, cultural and humanitarian spheres and development of military-technical cooperation.
The minister also noted that ongoing meetings in Moscow "reflect Egypt's support to Russia's position over preserving stability in the region of the Middle East and North Africa and averting attempts at destabilizing the situation.".....snip~
allAfrica.com: Egypt: FM - Russia-Egypt 2+2 Talks Allow Coordinating Positions On Int'l, Regional Issues
appreciate this find MMC, I just do not trust the Russians for "stability" in the ME, anymore then I do the US/NATO in Libya.."reflect Egypt's support to Russia's position over preserving stability in the region of the Middle East and North Africa and averting attempts at destabilizing the situation.".....snip~
Times change I suppose. and surely Egypt can make it's own decisions/partners
So much for the reset with Russia and the world wide apology tour which should have "changed the image of America around the world" and made the U.S. "safer and stronger." Obama and Kerry think they know the world and know what they are doing, but it's as far from the truth as you could possibly get.
Not only utter failure on the domestic front but utter failure on the foreign policy front. This administration is a failure, and there's 3 years left.
I'm just frustrated as hell with this track record of continual failure and continual dodging and continual lying from this administration and this president. The US electorate deserve better than this. They deserve results. Not this. crap.
You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo
