    Barack Obama to pledge Egypt aid in speech - Josh Gerstein - POLITICO.com

    I doubt even Red can defend this.

    I wish Obama was the president of Egypt instead. He's only doing the same thing he does here. He is trying to buy Egypt's friendship just as he tries to buy votes with his stimulus bill, immigration plan, union obamacare waivers etc.
    Get my ass kicked by red in 3,2,1......

    We give Egypt more than that every year since 1973. Look, it's important that the emerging government of Egypt is friendly and remains an ally to the US. You can bet that China is lining up to contribute if we don't. They will be going through a rough time with this unprecedented government change. What happened was a good thing and we need to stay on the right side of it.

    The money has already been spent, doofus! They weren't going to be able to pay it back anyway. Only a damn fool wants to eliminate foriegn aid. It the best way we have of manipulating other countries. It works. It has paid off many times.

    What do you want to do, invade and occupy Egypt and install democracy? Sorry, that costs $Trillion.

    Hey, I know. Let's turn Israel against us at the same time. We could...oh I don't know...suggest that they give 2/3 of their nation back to Palestine?

    Well, I guess you can alway change the subject when you don't want to continue . . .

    You do realize that Israel returning the West Bank to Palestine as a condition of peace has been the stated policy of every President since Johnston?
