Obama personally denied the Egyptian military F-16s that were supposed to be shipped as part of an aid package to Egypt. So the Egyptian military and people are indicating that if Obama wants to support the Muslim Brotherhood, they have other alternatives like Putin, who has shown he wouldn’t support the Brotherhood.
The U.S. has for years been close to the military who were always anti-Muslim Brotherhood.
So despite Congressional objection, Obama is personally sinking any positive relationship with the one major-non Islamist element in Egypt.
More crack foreign policy from the Obama team (bringing you foreign policy conducted like you were on crack since 2009).
Hundreds of thousands of demonstrators filled Cairo’s streets and squares Friday, July 26 in rival rallies shortly after deposed president Mohamed Morsi was formally charged and detained for 15 days. Tahrir Square was packed with crowds responding to Defense Minister Gen. Abdel Fattah El-Sisi’s call for a mandate to support the military fight on “terrorists.” Another huge crowd of Morsi supporters packed the streets around the Rabaa al-Adawiya mosque in Nasser City.
Instead of directing their ire at the overthrown Muslim Brotherhood, the pro-military demonstrators shouted “Bye Bye America!” as huge placards waved over their heads depicting as a threesome Gen. El-Sisi, Vladimir Putin and Gemal Abdel Nasser, who ruled Egypt in the 60s in close alliance with the Soviet Union.
