That didn't take long. Back to business as usual.

What are you talking about? This is TOTALLY different!

"Before the first $726-million portion of military and economic aid can be released — barring a waiver — Kerry must certify to Congress that Egypt: has held free and fair parliamentary elections; is implementing laws or policies to govern democratically and protect the rights of individuals; is implementing reforms that protect freedoms of expression, association and peaceful assembly, including the ability of civil society organizations and the media to function without interference; is taking consistent steps to protect and advance the rights of women and religious minorities; is providing detainees with due process of law; is conducting credible investigations and prosecutions of the use of excessive force by security forces; and has released American citizens who the secretary of state determines to be political prisoners and dismissed charges against them."

Barring a waiver, dude. Barring a waiver...

Why do we continue to borrow money from China to give to Egypt. Mind boggling..
To shore up a large but relatively poor country that has been about as close as any come to qualifying as an "Arab Ally" in that region?....because that [money] was the carrot that Carter used to get the Camp David accords signed by Egypt and Israel?....because that's a fairly low cost to pay someone else to provide security for the Suez canal?....

:yeahthat: When will these idiots in Congress learn...we are in debt up to our eyeballs. It's time to stop money from flowing out of the country.
The way it works is, see, we FILL the other country's up too, to their eyeballs, see, and then, when they're full, it starts to back up into OUR country and then, we carry the interest, or lack there of, and before you know it, perpetual money for all!

Nothing is better than those gold wrapped chocolate coins. Just sayin'...

But they don't hold up well in the desert. Egypt is mostly desert.
