First, two facts to lay the groundwork: 1) the USA is $16 trillion in debt and is facing a potentially catastrophic economic crisis if we do not radically curtail wasteful government spending immediately; 2) thanks in part to that same government, Egypt is no longer our ally, but is controlled by terrorist-affiliated Muslim Brotherhood Islamofascists committed to the annihilation of our civilization. Now on to the story:
American diplomats are closing in on an agreement to dole out $1 billion in debt relief to Egypt, part of a gilded-charm offensive that Washington hopes will help shore up the country’s economy and prevent its new Islamist leadership from drifting beyond America’s foreign-policy orbit.
A team of senior State Department economic officials have spent the past week in Egypt’s capital completing the terms of an aid package that President Barack Obama first announced last year after Egypt’s pro-democracy [sic] uprising rattled the country’s once-promising economic future.
Egypt’s “pro-democracy” movement is clearly of the “one man, one vote, one time” variety. For example:
Brotherhood lawmakers replaced the heads of state-owned newspapers with more malleable editors-in-chief, while public prosecutors charged a popular anti-Brotherhood TV talk-show host with calling for the assassination of Mr. Morsi and a secularist newspaper editor with insulting the president.
Given the strident Islamist ideology of the Muslim Brotherhood, there is no chance that the money stolen from us by our government and given to Egypt will not be used to kill Israelis, and little chance that it won’t eventually be used to kill Americans.
Meanwhile, RINO weenies castigate Michele Bachmann for wondering why someone doesn’t look into the intimate ties between the Muslim Brotherhood and the closest advisor to Obama’s Secretary of State Shrillary Rotten Clinton.
