Skip to comments.Egypt’s Instability Triggers a New Proxy War Against Ethiopia and its Allies
Posted on 06/12/2013 11:25:43 AM PDT by JerseyanExile
Egypts Morsi Government has initiated a return to covert war against Ethiopia, which controls the source of the Blue Nile, Egypts and Sudans principal source of water.
The result will almost certainly lead to an increased level of insecurity in the strategic Red Sea/Suez sea lane and in the upper Nile riparian states, such as South Sudan, with some impact on global energy markets. Certainly it promises to see greater instability in the Horn of Africa at a time when Western media portrayals hint at a return to stability in, for example, Somalia.
Significant, mounting public unrest in Egypt during May and June 2013 (with more promised), expressing discontent with the economic and social policies of the Ikhwani Government of Pres. Mohammed Morsi caused the President to search for a major foreign distraction a perceived threat to Egypt to turn public attention away from the worsening domestic social and economic climate. The campaign includes a major media offensive at the alleged threat, and also included the commitment of major political, intelligence, and military resources to a trenchant reversal of Egypts brief period of rapprochement with Upper Nile riparian states, particularly Ethiopia.

Now you know why...............
This is a job for the Iranian Navy
Yes, and now you know which side "we" (that is to say "obama") will support.
Thanks for looking that up. I was going to post it, knowing that Ethiopia is primarily Christian. Seems the political winds have taken an ugly turn in Obama’s estimation. We know with whom he will stand.
Not strictly speaking true:
One year ago, when Walid [Shoebat] discovered the names of 63 leaders who make up the Muslim Sisterhood which is essentially nothing more than the female version of the Brotherhood we learned that Humas mother, Saleha, was one of those leaders. Little attention has been paid to the other 62 leaders, however. One of them is Najla Ali Mahmoud, the wife of Mursi. Both are members of the Guidance Bureau, which proves fallacious, the claim that Najla is just an innocent and naïve spouse.Related? No.
This would make Humas mother a close, personal colleague of the wife of a virulently anti-Semitic racist who has officially been declared the first president-elect of post-Mubarak Egypt.
Merely rilly, rilly close...
Ethiopia is the Africa’s largest exporter of coffee. I NEED MY JAVA!...........
Ethiopia also has 86 million peaceful people and is friendly to the US. It is larger in size than almost all European countries. We should be their allies; not Egypt’s.
