What I Just Told RT in an Interview Re Egypt
The United States needs to get serious about its new threat to stop providing over a billion dollars in weapons per year to Egypt. This so called aid is clearly not sufficient to protect civil and human rights, if that's even a concern in Washington, and not even sufficient to protect the influence of disreputable U.S. Governmental Non-Governmental Organizations.
It's also not necessary, as the people of Egypt will produce their own civil society. We can help, but not with organizations tied to the CIA and with records of having sought to influence electoral outcomes around the world.
It's also damaging, as US weapons are used against Egyptian people. They could also conceivably be used in war, as the United States arms Libya, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Israel, etc., and threatens Iran. Why not take this opportunity to end the madness of arming Israel and Egypt to the teeth on condition that they not destroy each other?
Why not look to our own house to begin protecting civil liberties and establishing credible elections?
