These bumbling fools are making some stupid comments - again. Egypt is now our "ally" but King Obama says..well...not really.

If they are not an ally then why are we giving them tens of millions of our tax money.. I have had enough of these rag-heads and think we need to quit giving our hard earned money to support them. Screw them!

They actually payout money to protect the state of israel .

You should cut aid to all countries in the middle east and let them sort themselves out .

If Egypt was not an ally to the US... why America give Egypt 2 billion dollars a year?

1) Allow israelian and American ships pass through the suez canal
2) quit attacking and killing the jews
3) Stay away from the communist block
4) Allow energy/oil tankers pass safely through the red sea

allies usually have defence treaty among them including also sharing similar values , goals and political motive .

Egypt is a muslim eastern country while America is a christian western nation apart from that Egyptians and Americans hate each other.

They view us as terrorists and we view them as a bunch of redneck bloody colonizers .

how could we be allies when Americans burn and degrade Egyptian's most holy book and Egyptians burn the american flag ?

This was one of the main reasons why mubarak was kicked out

1)After the fall of mubarak Egypt allowed iranian ships carrying weapons to hizbullah pass through the canal
2)Egyptian weeks ago violated the peace treaty by sending more troops into sinae and they are still there till today .
3) Morsi first visit outside the Arab world was to " Communist China " .
4) Egyptian president visited Iran , something mubarak would have never thought about doing .
5) Egyptians burned the american flag infront of their embassy
6) Morsi refused to meet barrack obama and it was postponed to december
7) congress threatened to cut the 1 billion military grant
8) now obama saying egypt is not " an ally " implying that the relation between both nation has come to an end
9) Egypt terminated the gas agreement with israel 7 month ago .



Now republicans are pissed off and say that they are paying free gifts to terrorists aka the MB .

Would you compare the relations between
US and Egypt with the one between US and Algeria.

The USA does not need Algeria as its not close to its main interests in the gulf .

If Egypt was not located where it is then americans would have not cared about it .

You could say the relation between france and algeria now is similar to the post relation between Egypt and the united states prior to the fall of mubarak .

Now american officials have been saying for months whether republicans or democrats that everything with egypt has ended and were no longer " allies " and president obama confirmed this .

So would you allow Chineese company to take advantage of the Egyptian market like the Algerian did... do you believe that the MB will have a warm relationship with communist China?
Would you accept Chineese creating a Chinatown downtown Cairo?

If you were allowed to talk to yourself, you could become your own messiah.

Talk sense once a week at least. It is healthy for you and you therapy.
