He wouldn’t have scrapped it with the Muslim Brotherhood, I dare say.
Smart move by our Spades-Player In Chief!
Zero is going to drive General Sissi of Egypt right into the hands of Vlad Putin.
will the money saved be use to help veterans ?
Good plan.... dumba$$!
The Obamadork just wants more time to get some gay Muslim generals in our unfortunate military.
The whole world is laughing at the USA for having a moron/buffoon like Obama as POTUS!!! No one, no where, respects or listens to him, traitor to the USA that he is!!! Obama....go to Egypt and join your beloved Muslim terrorist, Morsi and your adored Muslim Brotherhood thugs!!!
"Egypt is in flames. What should I say to the American people, Susan?"
"Just tell 'em Gen El-Sissi is a big sissy for not taking your call."
Egyptian Gen. El-Sissi did not accept Obamas phone call......shows that the military strongman is determined to keep the US admin from interfering in his plans to drive the Muslim Brotherhood out of Egyptian politics.
I guess Susan Rice will have to go on Sunday TV talk and explain this foreign policy flopola...since she has been advising Obama on Egypt while he's relaxing in the Vineyard.
Egyptian military response, “Just as well, we’re quite occupied with the practical application of training right now. Things are a bit too messy for guests. We’ll get back to you when business slacks off.”
Obama’s legacy, worse than Iran, driving a key US ally to Russia or China. Obama is clearly aligned with the Muslim Brotherhood and sharia law, he’s not welcome in Egypt anymore. Nor are his homo State Dept. ambassadors. And Obama has no leverage, the amount of aid from the US is far less than that from the Gulf states now. Extremely telling how the Egyptian leader has blown him off and not even taken Obama’s phone call. Egypt spits on Obama, and by extension the US.
Only simple minded morons are supporting either side in this one.
You are absolutely correct and right on target!!! Obama is a total failure and has caused more bloodshed in the Middle East then anyone in the USA could have ever imagined!!! He has accomplished his goal of demeaning his home country, the USA, in the eyes of the entire world!!! Egypt does not need his dirty money....which would only go to his buddies in the Muslim Brotherhood. Cannot believe that Americans cannot see the massive damage Obama has done to our positive image around the world. Sad days for the USA!!! Sad...too...that this damage was done by a self-inflicted wound by the American people themselves in voting for this hate America, anti-American POTUS!!! Shame.....our magnificent, free country is dying before our very own eyes!!!
I hope that the Military wins this one, the Muslim brotherhood are way too radical.
Sadly yes, but at least he helped the Mullah’s keep peace in Iran.... Maybe Obama can get another Nobel for Egypt.
Obama’s Muslim Brotherhood side is losing, Qatar kicked their HQ out when Morsi was deposed, it was their only Gulf state sponsor due to a senile old sheikh that was replaced by the son I think. Egypt is blockading Gaza, now the MB HQ location. Hamas is isolated with no real allies anymore. Could it get so bad that sunni Hamas and shia Hezbollah start at each other in Lebanon? I need to replenish my Orvil Reddenbocker supply.
Most Americans are probably not sure which continent Egypt is on, let alone understand the factions. When they suffer the consequences for this they will blame evil corporations instead.
The 400 “lost” surface to air missile story hasn’t had much media play here yet. Wait until one is used successfully.
I bet the UN is writing a resolution to condemn Israel for all the violence.
Not really popular in Egypt right now, are you BHO?
