    Are we going to fund their war on Israel or what? The MB won't help the people in their country and will use money to further their radical plans.

    The Muslim Brotherhood are terrorists and any of the Muslims who believe in Sharia law are the ones waging a war on women.

    I disagree, its all Geo-politics, obama was right. its the smarter move. its half what they normally get and still keeps the door open yet sends a signal, they need that money so its all about trying to keep some influence and leverage.

    of course I never would have thrown mubarak under the bus but hey, thats me....

    Amazing. They allow our embassy to be attacked and yet think we should continue to support them.

    U.S. Move to Give Egypt $450 Million in Aid Meets Resistance
    By STEVEN LEE MYERS
    Published: September 28, 2012
    The Obama administration notified Congress on Friday that it would provide Egypt’s new government an emergency cash infusion of $450 million, but the aid immediately encountered resistance from a prominent lawmaker wary of foreign aid and Egypt’s new course under the leadership of the Muslim Brotherhood.

    Well, I would say it makes sense to promote the moderates, doesn't it?

    Sometimes reading these threads I get the impression the poster hasn't read a news story about Egypt for years and likely couldn't place Aswan on a map.

    Mystifying.
