    It is time to cut off the Egyptians from the Washington money trough. We pay this hostile Islamic country $2 billion per year. For what? To spew anti-American venom in their hate-filled state media? To vote against America efforts in the UN? To permit Egyptian jihadists to kill Americans in Iraq? To “be good” and not cause even more trouble in the Middle East? Egypt tolerates Israel because it has to, not because it is bribed by the US. Egypt knows that if it increased its support of anti-Israeli terrorism that it would be on the receiving end of IDF F15s. Mubarak is a two-bit dictator and needs to go. America should support democracy movements inside Egypt and destabilize the totalitarians. Some say that the Egyptian government resulting from democratic elections would be hostile to the US. More hostile that the current mob? Is that really possible? America should renew its financial aid to Egypt if a moderate democratically elected government emerges.

    I believe that Egyptians are just behind Syrians and Saudi Arabians in sending folks to cause problems in Iraq. Even fewer Iranians, which of course speaks to the Iranian leadership, than Egyptians.

    Yes there is something afoot. I posted similar about Condi cancelling the trip yesterday to Egypt, now this came out today. Wonders what consistency will do.

    All in all pretty good day, with Putin putting off signing with Iran.
