WASHINGTON President Barack Obama urged Egypt's military Wednesday to hand back control to a democratic, civilian government without delay, but stopped short of calling the ouster of President Mohammed Morsi a coup d'etat.

In a carefully worded statement, Obama said he was "deeply concerned" by the military's move to topple Morsi's government and suspend Egypt's constitution. He said he was ordering the U.S. government to assess what the military's actions meant for U.S. foreign aid to Egypt -- $1.5 billion a year in military and economic assistance.

The way to help Egypt is for the military to get back in control and make the country safe. If they can do that, tourism will again provide a whole lot of money.

The answer for any country is self-sufficiency. The US should butt out and get concerned about the invaders who have just about destroyed the US.

Looks to me that the Egyptian people have b*lls enough to work hard, create their own wealth, and manage their own affairs without any assistance from us.

Time for Barry and all the other pols to stop giving away the store in exchange for whatever goodies they derive from it.

Morsi role at Syria rally seen as tipping point for Egypt army

Kerry’s Secret Gift to Egypt
Jun 6, 2013 4:21 PM EDT

Last month John Kerry quietly approved huge arms shipments to Egypt—despite Cairo’s ongoing violation of human rights. Josh Rogin reports.

While employees of American NGOs sat in Egyptian prisons, Secretary of State John Kerry quietly waived the law that would prevent the U.S. from sending the Egyptian military $1.3 billion worth of weapons this year.

0’s just mad that they’re removing one of his Muslim Brotherhood buddy’s recent conquests. The Egyptians had to learn the hard way that Islam is a religion of hate and oppression.

In Chicago politics, there is always a kick back somewhere.

Even the people of Egypt understand that King 0bamadullah does not represent Americans. 0bama funded Morsi's rise to power; something no American would have done.

Just like Egypt, we have a Constitution too but that doesn't mean our President is honoring it. He unilaterally overturns and suspends Federal Laws to win elections. We should learn from how Egypt is remedying their problem.

I wonder how the Israeli press is reporting all this. It would be interesting.

In the meantime, the US likely will forward with its plan to help Egyptian college students get more bang for their buck out of their college degrees. See "Obama wants Egyptian students to get more from college."
