    Egypt's top general says 'certain group' won't dominate country | Fox News

    The Egyptian military doesn't want to give it up to the "certain group". The US wants them to give it up to the elected "certain group". I don't see the future turning out well giving up the power. At least to those who are not in that "certain group".

    Democracy, Fuck No! BTW, Don't worry about their military keeping power! A big government American Imperialist guy like you shouldn't mind giving the Egyptian military a billion a year in military aid forever to keep them in power.....

    Democracy's need more voter regulation to work, including ours. I've outlined this in the past a few times, probably almost 10 months ago at the latest.

    And no, it doens't worry me that the military is keeping power based on the comments of the elected president.

    A billion a year isn't bad, we'd spend more than that in medical and food aid to them when the current elected body declares war on Israel.

    I would only give aid to our allies and third world countrys that want to be our allies. The rest can fuck themselves.

    Hmm, I seem to remember H. Kissinger saying of Chile that the issues were "too important to let the voters decide."
    Z, might be right here. Perfect excuse for us to quit paying them, who exactly do we send the check to, the military or the Brotherhood? No thanks. Let them go at it, they'll be to busy fighting to bother Israel.
