As White House Warns of FBI Agents and Soldiers Being Laid Off Due to the Sequester, Kerry Announces $250 million for Egypt
The priorities of this administration really seem to be all wrong. We are giving Egypt $250 million due to their "extreme needs" and because they promised to "complete the IMF process", which would put us on the hook for another billion (they want $4.8 billion in IMF aid, the US would be responsible for a significant portion of that). Tell me how it wouldn't be better if the Egyptian economy collapses? Wouldn't we be better off? What's the worst that can happen? A radical islamic government takes over? Well, it already has. Giving the Egyptian government support only gives them time to consolidate their power and prepare for the coming conflict with Israel, one which they are undoubtedly planning given past statements. At least the locusts seem to be on our side for now.
