    Egypt hasn't been relevant since they built the pyramids.

    Stop the aid now and let them rely on dumb tourists who want to come to the desert and build sand castles.

    I agree that we should cut them off...we should have cut them off years ago. But it won't effect the protesters. They never got any of that money in the first place.

    PSSST!:secret: it's not charity. It's so the US can have access to their military bases and use of the Suez


    BUt yes, it does seem like money poorly spent at this point

    It's actually because of the Camp David Accords/Peace Treaty with Israel. Rhetoric can be dialed up, but it will not be cut until Egypt breaks the treaty.

    actually it's the typical political boondoggle between our politicians and the defence industry since the Egyptians are required to spend a large percentage of that aid buying american made military hardware as are the Israeli's

    You and Pi can post these up in as many different threads as you like.
    I doesn't change the fact that those actions would make America a MUCH more dangerous place.

    No one's saying "appeasement".
    I'm saying nuke-ing the country will only give cause to muslim fighters around the world. While turning otherwise peaceful muslims into fighters.
    yeah, terrific idea

    There are over 2 billion muslims in the world.
    Believe me, if that many people wanted to attack us it would have happened.
    The VAST majority of muslims just want to live their lives and don't even think about America. Except when we get involved in shit in their back yard.
    But just keep living in your scary "us against them" pro wrestling world
