    Does any one care to answer the question was there a coup in Egypt?

    If there was a coup doesn't the law demand that we cut off aid to that country?

    Or do ourselves and our government choose to ignore the laws that we do not like and do not fit into our current thinking?

    Foreign Aid could be called "Corporate Welfare" for our defense industries. We borrow money to give it away to foreign countries so they can buy US Military equipment. If that is not "Corporate Welfare" what is it?

    We should stop foreign aid to both Egypt and Israel. We can not afford it. I do not want my grand children to pay for it.

    Re: "Barack Obama's Middle East interventions have replaced stable and neutral despots in Egypt and Libya with anti-Western despots and chaos."

    Hear, hear! And, its most recent actions and pronouncements lend substantial credence to the theory that the Obama regime fully intends exactly what it has produced.

    Tempting as it is to throw out some bon mot about the regime "never missing a chance to miss a chance," it all just seems too sinister to chalk it up to liberals' typical sophomoric hubris.

    Who'da thought we'd ever thank God for Saudi and Gulf-state wisdom? They've got more skin in the game, of course, but you'd think American liberals could summon up the sense God gave a goose, and join them in the near-universal recognition of Muslim Brothers -- Ayman al-Zawahiri's home chapter of international militant Islamism -- for the clear and present danger they are to Egypt and the world.
