Obama Sends U.S. Troops to Prop Up Morsi


obamabrIn yet another remarkable display of Obama’s determination to secure the Middle East for Islamofascists, 400 U.S. troops will reportedly be deployed to Egypt to augment the police force of Islamist President Mohamed Morsi. They will be part of a 13-country force stationed in Egypt in anticipation of protests, scheduled for June 30th, calling for the removal of Morsi. Curiously, whereas Obama readily threw former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak under the bus in 2011, the White House is now eager to defend the regime of Morsi, who, like his Muslim Brotherhood sponsors, is well on his way to imposing the Saudi Arabian model of governance on Egypt.

The so-called “peacekeeping mission” on which the U.S. troops will serve is expected to last nine months. It follows six months of training by troops at both Fort Hood, Texas and Fort Irwin, California. That training reportedly included crowd control measures as well as Molotov cocktail attack response. ”Soldiers encountered Molotov cocktails and other dangerous items in the training,” reported a local TV news station out of Killeen, TX that broke the story.

A Fort Hood Press Center release reveals that a battalion task force from the 3rd Brigade Combat Team will be part of the Multinational Force and Observers (MFO) peacekeeping contingency based along the southeast coast of the Sinai Peninsula between Eilat, Israel, and Sharm-el-Sheikh, Egypt. Once there, they will man positions and checkpoints, report any violations of the 1979 Egypt-Israel Peace Treaty, and remain prepared to respond to threats. That treaty required Israeli forces to withdraw from the Sinai Peninsula and for Egypt to keep the area demilitarized. An exception to the treaty was authorized in 2011 when Israel allowed several hundred Egyptian troops into the area to quell violence that occurred then.

Troops assigned to the MFO are not under operational command of their respective nations, but commanded by the MFO itself. The MFO’s headquarters are located in Rome, Italy. With regard to American troops, the MFO website notes they will be expected to provide a Quick Reaction Force should the need arise.

The need is likely to arise. Since former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak was ousted–with the blessing of the Obama administration–Mohamed Morsi has moved swiftly to consolidate his power. He has suppressed the media and the arts, and issued an edict boosting his power and sidelining the judiciary in the process. He removed key officers from the Egyptian military, and allowed Muslim Brotherhood loyalists to rewrite the nation’s constitution. Attacks on Coptic Christian churches has occurred with alarming frequency, and women also face a dark future in a nation sexual harassment in endemic, and Muslim Brotherhood members condemned a UN report that gave judges, rather than husbands, authority in cases of divorce while granting women full rights to file legal complaints against their husbands for rape or sexual harassment.

As a result of his overreach, there is massive opposition to Morsi’s oppressive regime. A liberal secular group known as the Rebels has collected 15 million signatures on petitions calling for Morsi’s impeachment. That number represents a substantially larger total than the 13.2 million votes Morsi got in the 2012 election. The group intends to deliver the petitions to Egypt’s Supreme Constitutional Court, the nation’s highest, prior to the June 30 demonstrations. ”The regime did not take one step toward fulfilling the goals of the revolution,” said Rebel volunteer Amir Mahrous, 21, who was gathering signatures in Cairo. “This is why we are rebelling again.”

Morsi supporters claim they have garnered 10 million signatures in support of the regime. On June 21, 100,000 of his supporters held a pro-government rally in Cairo. Signs carried by the demonstrators read, ”The Koran is the constitution” and “Islam is the solution.” Morsi himself contends the Rebels petition carries no weight.

Thus, there is a burgeoning standoff between liberal secular Egyptians one side, and dedicated Islamists on the other. One that could precipitate widespread violence in four days. And President Barack Obama has sent American troops to Egypt–to stand with the Islamists.

Adding to the spectacular absurdity of U.S. troops protecting Morsi’ thuggish regime–and by extension a Muslim Brotherhood that spawned al Qaeda and Hamas–is the reality that some of the troops deployed there come from the same military base where another Islamist, Maj. Nidal Hasan, killed 13 and wounded 32 of his fellow soldiers in 2009. That attack was labeled “workplace violence” and troops and their families were denied Purple Hearts and survivors benefits when the administration claimed that such awards, given to those ”wounded or killed in any action against an enemy of the United States” would ”set the stage for a formal declaration that Major Hasan is a terrorist,” thereby jeopardizing his ability to receive a fair trial.

As is often the case with the “most transparent administration in history,” the White House has maintained silence regarding American troops being deployed into a potential nation-wide firestorm. Egyptian military spokesman Ahmed Ali insists that media reports regarding the deployment are inaccurate and that American troops will be nothing more than part of “the periodical renewal routine for the US faction of the 13-state multinational force deployed in Sinai since the peace treaty.” He further insisted the MFO “is not armed with military operations gear.”

Egyptian Major Ahmed Shaaban echoed that contention insisting the 400 troops were only part of a “routine” replacement of fellow U.S. soldiers on Sinai’s border. “They are only training to protect themselves as a matter of high-level security,” he insisted. “I don’t think these trainings are necessary because the peacekeeping force is not even authorized to conduct any military operations; they are only there to observe and report,” he added.

In the meantime, Reuters reports that Egyptians are stocking up on food, fuel and cash in anticipation of protests that “many fear will be the most violent and disruptive this year.” Furthermore, the U.S. embassy announced it would be closed on June 30, and warned Americans in Egypt to get enough supplies to make it through an “extended period of time.”

Last month, Secretary of State John Kerry released $1.3 billion in U.S. military aid to the Morsi regime, despite a law that requires him to certify that the Egyptian government ”is supporting the transition to civilian government, including holding free and fair elections, implementing policies to protect freedom of expression, association and religion, and due process of law.” Kerry waived that restriction–despite writing a May 9 memo indicating that ”we are not satisfied with the extent of Egypt’s progress and are pressing for a more inclusive democratic process and the strengthening of key democratic institutions.”

In the year since he has come to power, Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi has done virtually everything in his power to undermine a more inclusive democratic process and the strengthening of key democratic institutions. Yet the beat goes on for a president and an administration so desperate to maintain its Arab spring narrative, nothing remotely resembling reality intrudes.

In 2009, one of the few genuine spasms of resistance to Islamofacism broke out in Iran. Obama chose not to “meddle,” and thousands of pro-democracy Iranians were subsequently brutalized into submission. History is on the cusp of repeating itself in Egypt, with perhaps millions of Egyptian ready to stand up for democracy. This time Obama has “upped his game.” He now stands with the Islamists in no uncertain terms.

    Where the hell are all the Leftist anti-war protestors? Why aren’t they outraged? Why aren’t they daily protesting and making fools of themselves like they did when Bush was in office? Hypocrites, every one of them!

    As many of you already know, liberals aren’t really against war. They’re just against war when the sitting U.S. President is a Republican! If it’s a Democrat, they’ll look the other way and occupy their time with other matters.

    Their hypocrisy is compounded because not only has our Dear Leader continued our military presence in both Iraq and Afghanistan, but also in Libya and now in Syria! Conservatives must never forget the Left’s hypocrisy in this, and they must always be reminded how disingenuous they’ve been during the Obama regime. Laugh in their face every chance you get!

  • poptoy1949

    But he can’t send troops to prop up our Southern Border. Something is very wrong in this decision.

    • MarilynA

      And he couldn’t send troops to rescue the Americans under attack in Benghazi. Time to Impeach this Muslim traitor.

      You took the words right out of my mouth poptoy1949!

  • Adam

    The American troops will be placed on the front lines as human shields. They will not only have to worry about being harmed by protesters but also of being shot in the back by the Egyptian military.

  • DOYOULOVEAMERICA

    This president has become a dictator and the next and the next etc. presidents will also become dictators unless real Americans form right wing death squads….

  • Corey

    You guys have never heard of the Multi National Force and Observers (MFO) really? We have been sending a contingent since the Camp David Accords. This is not new

    • Corey

      We have been “deploying to Egypt” since the Camp David Accords in order to monitor activity between Israel and Egypt. And yes, a QRF has always been part of the MFO mission.

    • BenJabo1Machal

      Assigned for duty ON THE BORDERS, not within in Egypt, where these poor souls are destined for

  • Ogmius

    This is a pretty deceitful article: the US troops are not there to prop up the Morsy regime. It really is a standard deployment to the MFO in Sinai.

    That having been said, US ambassador Patterson has meddled in her attempts to persuade the opposition not to challenge the status quo. In this regard I believe that the US administration (any US administration) always favours the status quo over the overthrow of tyrants.

    • libsarescum

      You are wrong, the current regime in the WH is engaged in the overthrow of SECULAR tyrants to be replaced by MUSLIM tyrants. At the request of their Saudi masters, off course.

    • brad

      BS.

      • YourMOM

        As one of the deployed. i have to say truth.

        • lena_scott

          You are saying as one of the deployed that this article is truthful?

    • LP

      Ogmius is right. I know a whole troop of people from 3rd BCT that are there. They’re having a pretty good time snorkeling in the Red Sea and hanging out at the beach when they’re not working. It has nothing to do with Obama and has been going on long before he was even thinking about becoming president.

  • BenJabo1Machal

    Did you really expect that the President wouldn’t send troops to help his fellow MuSLIMES?

    • Billy Miller

      This sure smells like a continued weakening of our military strategy. AWOL figures may go sky high and new enlistments?? gimme a break! WE the People need to unite here and now to stop this and begin… and I mean begin to turn the ship back on course. I am just one of millions and continue to look for leaders. Billy

  • libsarescum

    WTF is wrong with the U.S. military, are they just mindless robots??!!

    • Everett Vulgamore

      what can a few soldiers do? even if all 400 refused to guard a fascist, they would all be thrown in jail and possibly be shot, just to have the next group of 400 be put on the line. it would take a division sized refusal, 10,000+ millitary men and women.

  • Gee

    Okay – Egypt is a nation of 90 million people – does anybody really think that 400 Americans are really going to have any sort of impact – especially considering that they might have one person that can sort of speak a few words in Arabic?

    Reality people

    • Billy Miller

      Wow, I was thinking the same thing… the bummer is sending 400 of the USA’s fighting forces to … perhaps their final battle?? and it reads like it will be a 400 troop ‘musical chair’ with constant rotation. I am really trying to sit a bit higher in the stadium to see what the game plan is! and yes yes where are our military leaders? time for them to stand up and be counted… I am an old soldier but ready to do my part for ‘my’ God and Country. Billy

      • LP

        You people are clueless. MFO has been going on for around 30 years now, with mutliple countries involved in “keeping the peace”. All they do is observe and report. They are in no way assisting the Egyptians and are not being sent to “their final battle”. My husband and many friends are part of that 400 and are very much enjoying snorkeling in the Red Sea on their very relaxed deployment.

    • riddick

      Yes we can have impact. We were a very secret group. Consider us like Spartans. We could handle all 90 million. i was one of them.

  • brad

    The Mahdi is the antichrist. More people deceived.

  • LindaRivera

    Obama is working closely with the 56 Muslim nations – Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) to make it an international crime to say anything negative about Islam. In other words, to make it an international crime to tell the truth about
    Islam.

    Obama in a speech at the UN: “The future must not belong to those who
    slander the prophet of Islam.” End of quote. Some people regard that as
    a DEATH threat to people who tell the truth about Islam.

    The U.S. administration has appointed their top FAVORITES, Muslim
    Brotherhood operatives into positions of enormous power in the
    government. The MB are helping to make foreign and domestic policy. The
    stated Muslim Brotherhood goal is DESTRUCTION of Western civilization
    and global Islamic conquest.

  • propel7

    The Mahdi is the beast that rises up out of the bottomless pit. The false PROPHET. …go figure…FALSE “prophet”. He is thrown alive into a lake of fire. Need i mention that he doesn’t get out? Burn baby burn! The murdering scum that follow him will also follow him to his final destiny. The 72 virgins are 72 fallen angels. The joke is on you who follow this FALSE prophet.

  • johnnywood

    Barack “Benghazi” al-Obama, any questions?

  • Raymond Gaylord

    We’ve been doing this since 1981… This has nothing to do with Obama… The army has been supporting this with a BN size element for over 30 years!!! So spare me the Obama rhetoric… He does suck, but quit looking at this as some new attempt to embrace the muslim brotherhood, you uninformed clowns.

  • BenJabo1Machal

    They say you can recognize the Mahdi by the space between his front teeth
    or you can recognize Obama by t he hole in his head

  • MauserMedic

    This article is BS. I served in the MFO in 2008. That mission has been going on since 1982, and basically provides a buffer between Egypt and Israel. Anyone who’d like to see what the MFO actually does can find an the unofficial Facebook page where current and former members post images constantly.

    • BenJabo1Machal

      They’re not scheduled for duty on the borders, they have been assigned to assist Morsi WITHIN EGYPT

      • LP

        My husband and many friends are assigned to 3rd BCT who are the ones deployed there right now and I can 100% guarantee they are not assisting Morsi or any Egyptians with anything. Multiple countries take part in MFO and have been for many years. They are not “within Egypt” like some insist, they are very much enjoying the beach life by the Red Sea.

  • Everett Vulgamore

    they will also look the other way when a muslim and Fascist is in power, and when WE are guarding the very things and ideas that previous generations fought against. if our soldiers bleed and die for this muslim fascist, this should be the absolute last straw for America. it was bad enough when obama decided to start negotiating with the Taliban that have been fighting tooth and nail in afghanistan

  • American1969

    I don’t like it. Why would we need to send troops to monitor what happens between Isreal and Egypt when it’s obvious that Obama has it in for Isreal?

    • LP

      MFO has been going on long before Obama was president. Multiple countries take part in it, not just us. They have a website dedicated to MFO so you can actually learn what they’re doing and why instead of believing every thing you read in the media.

  • SoCalMike

    Not a single Republican has said boo about this?
    A foreign policy based on appeasing, arming and bribing people we should be opposing while we sell out real allies.
    More and more we seem to have a one party system that serves everyone but Americans.

  • ac287149

    hey Republican congressmen, there are people on TV pretending to be you, and they’re all in a dither about amnesty. Why aren’t you guys up in arms about this?

  • johngvanvliet

    ..
    I really wonder what Sheik Obama is.. a Christian or a muslim a think the latter the way he acts and reacts I really wonder…. He either is totally stupid or ignorant which is really the same or he is both!!!

    Certainly what he is doing is truly difficult to understand no matter how you look at this. This man Obama has no understanding of politics or if he has he is playing a wicked game of destructing democracy and setting up the groundwork for a world government run by Islamist. To further this issue where are the lawmakers are they brain death???

    • riddick

      read his book “Dreams of my father” who by the way is none other than Frank Davis. He is a very high profile American Communist fro the 50′s and 60′s. Also a porno producer. The Kenyan was a marriage of convenience to Obama’s mama. She was a porno star.The main point is as he Obama stated “When the winds of change happen I will always be on the side of Moslems” His quote is very close to this

  • riddick

    The Egyption People should be proud of their military. The Egyption Military takes their Constitution seriously. In our country we have chicken shit generals who alow a corrupt Communist ruin our country and try to become another pawn of the Bilgerburgers and NWO fascists. I hope the Egyption Military tells Obama to wipe his ass with that money

  • muslimmustgo

    Doesn’t the American public get it!!!! obama is a radical muslim brotherhood member,he should be impeached for sending ONE troop to help the islamofacsist dictator morsi!!! morsi and his muslim brotherhood LIED to the people of Egypt along with the brotherhood members obama’s help and influence to be elected under the guise of DEMOCRACY!! morsi and his cult was strong arming the people of Egypt to accept sharia law or else! I can’t believe that this congress would not stop this egregious act by obama!

  • Arf

    This is unbelievable. Obama empowers the MB to get rid of Mubarak and then sends US troops to prop him up — against the will of the Egyptian people while Morse supporters vow to set Christians on fire and become suicide bombers. Talk about foreign manipulation and intervention. I am afraid for the U.S. We are going to get this back in our faces and we deserve it. We have become a force for terror and evil in this world.

  • LP

    Even though this is a couple months old I have to comment. My husband is one of the 400 “mindless robots” of our U.S. military that is assigned right now to MFO in Egypt. It has absolutely nothing to do with anything that is going on in Egypt, they are not assigned to protect or help any Egyptians whatsoever. In fact, they’re all having a pretty good time snorkeling in the Red Sea when they’re not working. This has been going on for many years but is normally manned by reserve forces. They sent active duty this time to save money as active duty is already paid the full salary. You can look at the MFO website to see for yourselves exactly what they are doing, as there are many countries involved, not just us. I don’t like Obama one bit but we’ve been deploying to Egypt for MFO long before he was even thinking of becoming president.
