So, why were we giving them our hard earned tax-conficated/borrowed from China in the first place?

I now call (to)...return full authority back to a democratically elected civilian government as soon as possible through an inclusive and transparent process

First time I have ever agreed with this putz, as I too want to see a return of a democratically elected......... Egypt?

I thought he was talking about the USA.

I am incensed that we have transitioned from a love and devotion of freedom, to that of democracy. Too bad the GOP sucks so much at promoting freedom.

I suppose the POS is worried that Egypt might actually become a friendly nation again. Couldn’t give aid to a country like that.

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.

Is the current $1.5 Billion going to the Muslim Brotherhood, or the actual people of Egypt? Taking that away from the alleged corrupt Morsi regime might not be a bad thing for the new government.

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.

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.

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.

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."

Aid to Egypt ends because a statute says no aid can be sent to them if there is a military coup. This is the best of all things. The Coptic and secular non throat cutting islamist now rule AND WE DON”T HAVE TO SEND $1.8 BILLION of printed money a year and we can use that money to send National Guard to the mexican border!!

The problem with the GOP is that they think their version of freedom is better than the Rat version of freedom. We do not get our freedoms from government. The only thing government can do is restrict, mold, morph, and change the definition of freedom. We need less government. That will yield more freedom.

“that the same thing might happen to him. “

I see a couple of differences:

Their young folks are not sucking on the welfare teat, are not distracted by facebook and TMZ, etc. They are aware of their govt. situation.

Their military hasn’t been gay’ed, and its patriotic leaders haven’t been compromised, fired, blackmailed, such as ours have.

Obama’s ego is too big for him to realize that the Egyptian military used the Muslim Brotherhood to get rid of Mubarak, who was setting his family up to rule For at least another generation.

A decent interval has passed and that same military no longer has any use for Morsi. If they had left Morsi alone much longer he’d have gotten rid of the next echelon of officers and the Army would have been neutered. So they had to move and move quickly.

The populace realized what a serious error they committed placing a president in office. They rose in opposition and the military stepped up to remove him in objection to dangerous societal and contstitutional changes ushered in with the new regime.

Hmmmph.....can't understand at all why Obama is "deeply concerned."
