Obama Punishes Egypt by Cancelling Military Exercise that Egypt Already Cancelled

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. He is completing a book on the international challenges America faces in the 21st century.


Obama Pharoah

Obama blasted the Egyptian government for breaking up the Muslim Brotherhood’s terror camps where people were being tortured and murdered. He expressed no sympathy for the Egyptian soldiers and police officers brutally murdered by his Brotherhood allies.

And then he dropped the hammer. “While we want to sustain our relationship with Egypt, our traditional cooperation cannot continue as usual when civilians are being killed in the streets and rights are being rolled back. As a result, this morning we notified the Egyptian government that we are canceling our biannual joint military exercise, which was scheduled for next month.”

Now

1. Obama had no problem continuing his relationship with Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood regime when it was rolling back rights and murdering civilians.

So Obama is not concerned with rights, but with keeping the Muslim Brotherhood in power.

 

2. Bright Star was already being canceled by Egypt. There was no official statement but last week it was reported that the Egyptian military wanted to cancel the exercise.

It wouldn’t be the first time. The exercise had been postponed or canceled in past years due to tensions in Egypt or the region. It would be ridiculous for it to go on now.

In 2011, that came about as a joint agreement. This time around, Obama jumped in to make it seem like he was canceling an exercise that wasn’t going to happen anyway.

    Gotta keep the bobble-head smiley face the Dems chose as the NEW face of ” elite Socialist Rule”……..after all THEY know better than little ole moi! For a sec there I forgot what Class I was in and, GOD FORBID, spoke up. “Elite Socialist Rule”, by the way fellow dingbats, is also known as Communism, Marxism, will “America the Brave” have the guts to take on their own government? Or has the Grand Plan neutered even Freedom-Loving Patriots? Get out vote March, Petition, TELL THE TRUTH. Stay friends with the US Armed Forces.

    Apparently the crucifixion of Christians by the Muslim Brotherhood and the Salafists wasn’t grounds for cancelling military exercises or 1.3 billion in aid.
    What does Obama have to do to prove to America that he is a Muslim, put minarets on the Whitehouse? Trade in his bullet-proof tank for a camel caravan? Declare Christians and Jews second class citizens? Burn down churchs and synogogues?

      why do people insist on calling Obama a Muslim when the Americans give the Jew’s over $8000000per day. He would be the worst Muslim ever you idiot.

    He is going to lose Egypt. Story already rolling around out there that the Egyptian military is looking towards Russia, and possibly China for future support. Not a good thing. So if the Russians sell them Migs, will they send our F16′s back? Or, use them for target practice…

    LDMack; what you have said is so true, I wouldn’t be surprised if Egypt does in fact join Russia/China.

    If that does end up being the case, then Turkey would have no problem declaring war on Egypt.
