Republican lawmakers split on whether US should cut aid to Egypt amid spiraling violence

Aug 18, 2013 Full story: Canada.com

It was like Return of the Living Dead as braaaaains and brawn went on display Saturday in downtown Vancouver as thousands of people gathered to watch hundreds of zombies stagger and limp through city streets for the city's 2013 Zombiewalk.

What a stupid opening statement.

Democrat Lawmakers are also DIVIDED about what to do with Egypt.
At least, I hope Democrats are as able to think for themselves as Republicans.
Otherwise,Democrat Voters just elected a bunch of Zombie robots who sit around waiting for Pelosi/Reid to tell them what "they"are supposed to THINK about stuff.
I doubt that Congressional Democrats have ALL been CaliFORNICATED.

Republican Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky, who represents the party's libertarian, anti-interventionist wing, said U.S. aid to Egypt was more likely to "buy a chateau in Paris" for an Egyptian military leader than "bread in Cairo" for the poor.

"I don't think we're buying any friendship with the Egyptian people," Paul said, especially when people see tanks supplied by the U.S. to the Egyptian military on the streets of Cairo.

"We are not winning the hearts and minds of the Egyptian people," said Paul, a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. "The aid has to end."

President Barack Obama has denounced the violence, cancelled joint military exercises scheduled for September and delayed the delivery of four F-16 fighter jets.

But the White House has refused to declare Morsi's removal a coup a step that would require Obama to suspend $1.3 billion in annual military aid. The president insists that the U.S. stands with Egyptians seeking a democratic government. But he says America cannot determine Egypt's future.

Exactly.

Now if we can delay or cancel the F-15's, why can't we cancel their aid.

Let's for once, see how our "allies" react when they DON'T get our money.

Bet they won't be our "allies" for long.

Since all the elections are fixed by the Nazicrats using the IRS and the NSA anyway, why not just vote for the best thing for us?
The elections are rigged anyway by the Nazicrats.
BTW. One of the big points to accomplish in the communist manifesto is to make the population you are targeting lose faith in the election process.
Obama and the commiecrats are getting that accomplished by using the IRS and publicizing it's guilt.
Then rewarding those that help the White House get the goals of the communist manifesto into reality like Lois Lerner..
.
It's all there in black and white.
