Egypt Responds to Trump's Lifting of Military Aid Ban by Sentencing 75 Anti-Coup Protesters to Death

Andrea Germanos, staff writer

Egypt on Saturday sentenced 75 people to death for taking part in a 2013 sit-in protest against the military ouster of democratically elected president Mohammed Morsi—a court decision that came days after the United States sent "the wrong message to one of the most abusive governments in Egypt's recent history" by restoring $195 million in military aid to the nation.

Egypt and Sisi are just leading by American example.

No, not the wrong message; the correct message! Because the current government in Egypt may be abusive but they are Amerika’s abusive thugs and so nothing else matters!


#4

Can’t help but wonder what the US governments actual concerns were when withholding the annual bribe.
Have a hard time believing human rights ever factored into it.

This 195M is nothing but tossing a pittance to a relatively non Radical regime when talking well deserved smack with Ayatollah. Never know when well placed positive feeling are needed by State.
