Obama Inc Threatens to Cut Military Aid to Egypt if Morsi is Overthrown

130303160948-kerry-morsi-egypt-story-top-550x309

Kerry and Co. have been insisting that we have to keep plowing money into Morsi’s Brotherhood regime because it’s in America’s national security interests. Those claims never held much water and they hold even less water now that unnamed Obama officials are warning the military that if it takes power, it will face a loss of that same military aid.

U.S. officials said Washington has suggested to Morsi that he call early elections, though they underlined they were demanding specific steps — and they said they had underlined to Egypt’s military that a coup would have consequences for U.S. aid. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly about the matter.

Back in the day, Kerry was claiming that we “had” to give Morsi weapons.

“The fact that sometimes other countries elect someone you don’t completely agree with doesn’t give us permission to walk away,” Kerry said at his confirmation hearing.

In a recent memo, Kerry wrote,  “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,” Kerry said the aid should go forward.

“A strong U.S. security partnership with Egypt, underpinned by FMF (Foreign Military Financing), maintains a channel to Egyptian military leadership, who are key opinion makers in the country,” Kerry wrote in the memo.

Except now Obama Inc. is throwing the Egyptian military leadership under the bus to try and salvage the Morsi regime. This was never about aiding the Egyptian military. It was about aiding the Brotherhood.

Now Obama Inc. are scrambling like rats to salvage Morsi’s position. And their actions show that the foreign aid was for Morsi, not for Egypt or its military.

“As much as we appreciate [the Egyptian military's] statement that they intend to protect the Egyptian people, they need to be careful about how they inject themselves into the situation. We are telling them that playing a role with their ultimatum to get the two sides together is completely appropriate, but anything that looks like a military takeover is walking a very thin line,” an official said.

Unlike putting terrorists in control of Egypt.

    Egypt’s Islamists attack Christians and they get F-16s. They ratchet up prosecutions for “blasphemy” and get Abrams tanks. Meanwhile, what Egypt really needs is wheat and diesel fuel.

    • Mohamed Abdo A

      you been fed lies over and over, Egypt islamists are peaceful and never attacked any christians…..you been informed wrongly by anti-islamic people. Islamists were violent decades ago, but now they dont use any violence and seek true democracy…Now the army wants to break the democracy and steal power again…So violence will be back

      • Bob Bartlett

        Are you saying that the Coptic Christians churches have not been set on fire? Aren’t they being raped? The reports of torture after a funeral are not true? A lot of Coptic Christians have been fleeing for their lives. Are you saying there is freedom of religion there?

        • Mohamed Abdo A

          Bob: you are misguided about what happens, Dont plz let hatred to islam blind you, Stay fair…if you hear any news,listen to two sides… No they arent, They live peacefully with islamists, Even by our early days of 25 jan revolt, the so called extremist salafists were protecting churches from Mubarak gangs that they wanted to kill the country by turning it into sectarian violence

          • Osama

            Mohamed, Christians are lying about being victims? are you saying that churches have not been set on fire and have not been attacked by suicide bombers?

            Please stop your misinformation…

          • Omar

            The Church that was set on fire and bombed was done by Mubarak’s regime. It was an inside job that intended to create unrest in the country between the Muslims and Christians. It all became evident after Mubarak stepped down, case was taken to court (suspects were trialled).

          • Mohamed Abdo A

            Omar hmmm i refer to last event about fight between muslims and xtians in shobra

          • Mena Beshai

            looks like mohamed and omar are living in a different egypt than all egyptians living in … you better say the truth or just shut up guys …you making me feel i’m living in a different country.

          • Mohamed Abdo A

            Osama: churches been attacked for a reaction, i dont defend it anyway but when fights turn on,dont ask about reaction as for people be full of anger.

          • Mohamed Abdo A

            Mosques been attacked this year many times by communist party thugs,they even threw molotovs inside….what you think about that? they were suicide bombers or the heros you support and call them great youth? you guys are misinformed about many facts and the thing that hit your mind ” its only enemity to islam”

        • Mohamed Abdo A

          If you come try living in egypt, you will find freedom and acceptence from all islamists, Copts have their agenda,they have to lie and make things up. they create troubles and when fights happen, they pretend to be victims, Last trouble: coptic guy attacked mosque and wrote abusive marks, Then muslims had quarrel with him, copts opened fire on muslims, 1 muslim was held dead and many injured, then muslims reacted violent. 4 copts were killed in back…..Violence doesnt start by islamists or muslims its by copts in most case, to be fair too: some muslims are bad yes and have extremist i dont deny that but they are few and have no true impact

          • Bob Bartlett

            Thank you for your reply! I do appreciate both sides of the story
            but it is unfortunate we usually do not hear from people like you. I feel that you were honest in your reply. I was in Israel in February and was fortunate to speak to a gentleman like yourself. He stated that there were good Jews and bad Jews, Good Muslims and bad Muslims. The problem I have with your statement is you finished it by saying that the extremist are few and have no impact. They do have an impact. Violence can never be tolerated if you want peace. Stop the violence and you have the opportunity for peace. There are things in your culture that most Americans disagree with. The way that women are treated as a piece of property for example. Our culture has gone though that and we now treat them as equals. Our culture has gone through the hatred of black people but now we have changed. We have learned that all people deserves respect. I have learned that hatred toward anyone is wrong. I hate their sins, but I try to love the sinner. I also feel that Americans like to point the finger at other people but fail to realize that we have over 5,000 murders a year in America. We kill thousands of babies a year without any guilt. Who is the violent society?

          • Mohamed Abdo A

            There are many lies put,we shouldnt rush in believe them.
            Exactly, good and bad people in all religions and countries, extremists have no impact yes, there are few people which believer in their agenda, who wants to be like taliban or bin laden and these violent groups? only few ppl. Peace is offered from islamists in egypt, some salafies and muslim brotherhood seeked the democracy path, Result first elected egyptian president to be fired by coup led by traitors in army, what happened now? Police started to arrest people, channels shut down….all kinds of oppression is back, they even cheat on people by showing them that morsi supporters are few and opponents are bigger, So when your right is taken off, you will go to vilolence, you have to fight for your rights,they think people will back to mubarak era where his country is only police. this will never happen, People will fight and keep fighting to liberate this country.

          • Bob Bartlett

            What should the U.S.A. do for Egypt in your opinion?

          • Craven Moorehead

            PRO MORSI IS ALL PALLYWOOD…..you cry “theyre killing us theyre killing us”to garner western support.islamist want all infidels dead.

          • Mohamed Abdo A

            I know your america history, you run by bad times at past untill your country became great, i hope egypt to seek the same way but unfortunately as long as the team of mubarak in leadership, No hope….Morsi wasted egypt with handing company with these criminals, i pray for my God that everything to turn on and see these ppl locked up in jails and get true punishment for the victims they hurt

          • http://www.facebook.com/people/Bryan-Schmick/100000836170959 Bryan Schmick

            Above you say 10 million Islamists will fight for Morsi. Here you say Islamists are about freedom and acceptance.

          • Craven Moorehead

            ….TAQIYYA!……THE SOONER YOU WAHHABI ARE OUT OF EGYPT THE BETTER.

    “The fact that sometimes other countries elect someone you don’t completely agree with doesn’t give us permission to walk away,” Kerry said at his confirmation hearing.

    Exactly whose permission do we need to stop sending money and weapons?

    Old Egyptian govt – friendly to US and supported peace in the region. Can’t have that. The military helps a coup and the govt is replaced by a govt pushing Sharia law and making waves at attacking Israel – we must do everything we can to keep them in power. Why does the pres support the military taking over a non-religious friendly country but not a religious unfriendly country. Didn’t pres Obama say in his biography that he would side with the Muslims?

  • alericKong

    They’re probably blowing each other.

  • Bob Bartlett

    How about this. The U.S. should cut off military aid to Egypt if they don’t stop burning churches, raping Coptic Christians and torturing the Coptic Christians even if Morsi is not overthrown! Why do we attempt to sweep these news stories under the table?

  • delm31_nabla@yahoo.com

    We should end aid anyway. We need the money here at home. We play Santa Claus to the world. Let Egypt see to its own house.

    • objectivefactsmatter

      The UN would never allow that.

      • delm31_nabla@yahoo.com

        We can’t solve Egypt’s problems they created themselves. Who cares what the UN thinks?-its a useless bureaucracy. Even if Moursi is removed, his successors will face the same crowds of gripers, hoodlums, and thugs who think Egypt can be healed of everything that ails it on short notice. It will take years, maybe decades to undo the problems with the economy, human rights, democracy, and so on, and get the country back on the right track. I wish Egypt well-but things won’t change for the better overnight.

  • ziggy zoggy

    You forgot to include the dialogue with the Morsi Kerry photo.
    Morsi: “Inshallah, I wish I had a hog this big.”
    Kerry: “Can I rub it like a magic lamp?”

  • herb benty

    So Obama only wants to support the Al Quida- like Muslim Brotherhood and let the true freedom loving Egyptians fend for themselves. Obama is clearly a traitor to America.

  • U-Chen Oh
  • Simon Timothy

    I fully agree the remarks ” Except now Obama Inc. is throwing the Egyptian military leadership under the bus to try and salvage the Morsi regime. This was never about aiding the Egyptian military. It was about aiding the Brotherhood.

    Now Obama Inc. are scrambling like rats to salvage Morsi’s position. And their actions show that the foreign aid was for Morsi, not for Egypt or its military.” They are rats.

  • Mohamed Abdo A

    If morsi is overthrown, Egypt will witness the worst violent actions since centuries and worst situation than syria. In egypt: 10 million islamists and ready for any fights

    • orioninitiative

      Don’t fret or threat, Islam will eventually be swept away.

      • Mohamed Abdo A

        thats your dream, Islam will rule the world…this is a promise from God, Our islamic power will shine again….Its enough for one century of lost, We are ready to die for islam

        • orioninitiative

          …and your violent ideology will die with you, this is a promise from God.

          • Mohamed Abdo A

            Study history and you will learn, your america will be islamic, many americans are converting now! cuz islam is the proper answer

          • orioninitiative

            My America? Do you think any threat from Islam has any effect on me? Do you really believe your threat of 10 million violent Islamist in Egypt, (your words) has any chance of rescuing your evil Arabic monotheism? Threats, fear, violence, threat of death, threat of empire? Is that all you have???? I have something much better so I’ll pass on the fear thing that drives you!

          • Mohamed Abdo A

            A civil war to start in egypt on coming days or a counter attack army coup on defense minister, as Now morsi has many military leaders on his side…..call it threat or not, but your america will pay price for support betrayal

          • orioninitiative

            You will be hearing of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not frightened, for those things must take place, but that is not yet the end.

            Mohamed, historically do you know who spoke those words? So you work hard to frighten people and you fail because someone greater than anyone ever named Mohammad assured his loved ones otherwise. You need to rely less on your perceived ability to put fear in the hearts of the unbeliever and more into changing your own heart that can’t hardly wait for mass destruction. It will matter to you then less who ‘rules’ the world.

          • Mohamed Abdo A

            Violence and death,threat of empire its all american imperialism principles, you most evil people in world, you live on stealing other nations…You rob our societies and appoint dictators to practise all oppression on people, We will never back to these days

          • Leslie Anderson Hoffmann

            So you went from stating how Islam wanted to give all people rights to Islam will take America. You can have your dream and extremist may kill many but Islam will never rule America . You may infiltrate but you will not win the heart of all Christians or Americans!!!! Maybe you should revisit the history reading….

          • Mohamed Abdo A

            Oh yeah, Thats our main faith, we will rule the earth before end of time such like we ruled it on early days of islam, Two big powers of world by early islam times, Persians and Romans were destroyed by muslims…….thats why i say for you ” study history”

          • Mohamed Abdo A

            Muslims now are weak and nothing on world power, but the world is changeable, Today we weak, tomorrow we will be super powerful.

          • Thomas Johnson

            Mohamed, unfortunately fundamentalist, (and acquiescent moderate) Muslims will never take over. The Quran is a misogynist and intolerant book that has some rather ugly connotations.

          • Mohamed Abdo A

            Muslims will take over the earth, I dont have such doubt about that. If you think world will continue to be like this, then You are wrong! Your america will lose power in near time

          • Bob Bartlett

            I believe you are correct that America will lose power. We can see that happening now. I disagree that the Muslims will take over the earth. Watch the impact of the European nations taking over power in a one world government.

          • Mohamed Abdo A

            There is a vision which says” Usa will lose power by end of this year 2013″, we will see if it gonna be true or another fantasy

          • Mohamed Abdo A

            It will not die! but your evil america will die soon

          • Mohamed Abdo A

            A promise from God : Your america will get bad punishment

          • Bob Bartlett

            True, because we have turned away from G-d.

        • Bob Bartlett

          Respectfully speaking, where was your G-d during the six-day war?

          • Mohamed Abdo A

            Bob: Everything running by God, Victory comes from him…you know that? your ancient jews were enslaved for 60 years in egypt right? where was god during all this time? for six day war: its mentioned in our religion that israel will rise again and have power then it will get terrible destruction as sign before end of time

          • Bob Bartlett

            The Bible says that the city of Damascus will have trouble of a night-time. Then in the morning it will be a ruinous heap never to be inhabited again. With Israel’s nuclear weapon’s it is difficult to believe that Israel will be destroyed without all of the Muslim nations being destroyed. Thank you for your opinion. I don’t agree with you but I respect your answers.

        • Deerknocker

    The ability of Obama and his administration to get absolutely everything wrong is awe inspiring. Dump Mubarak, a friend of the US, and go to bat for Morsi, a friend of the Muslim Brotherhood who likely sponsored the Benghazi attack. Stupid is as stupid does.

    • Connect The Dots

      Morsi is the leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, that apparently, was just moonlighting as the Egyptian president.

      Its becoming clear that that Obama is a member of the MB. It is a fact that MB infest the govt at some of the highest levels. Many of Obama’s appointed czars are also MB, as is Eric Holder.

      Obama talked Mubarak into resigning, then backed Morsi’s election to prez… probably so that he could then “legally” give the Muslim Brotherhood thru pres Morsi, billions in US weapons and cash… which he did immediately.

      Great news that Egypt ousted Morsi, but Muslim Brotherhood is still the largest, most organized group in that region…

      It ain’t over yet!

  • fed-up

    President Obama is treating these countries like they were our colonies. Kinda odd since he is against – - wait for it – - Colonialism dum dum dummmm
    The people in Egypt know what they want. The next thing you know, our President will be trying to sell them on Obamacare.

    • Mohamed Abdo A

      its not egypt people who decide, its america and their puppets in army, the thugs of mubarak which stole us for long time and now they back to snatch another theft from the blind people…….Obama never was with morsi, Morsi wanted to make egypt independant and strong and thats what usa doesnt want

  • Ross A Lloyd

    No surprises there… Imam Obama not happy his Muslim Brotherhood masters have been given the boot. Morsi was democratically elected either. There was massive electoral fraud and intimidation throughout the election in Egypt, a bit like the US actually…

    • Mohamed Abdo A

      Obama never supported muslim brotherhood, Obama worked with the devil state of saudi arabia and army in egypt to fail muslim brotherhood in egypt, Their game not finished yet and will be turned on them, God has control over all things
