You can blame the CIA, Bush, Obama or radical Islam -
but America now has the opportunity to repair the damage.

America should reduce military aid to Egypt & use that money to pay half of the salaries of every teacher & doctor & nurse in Egypt. Also offer a 50% bonus to any qualified American serviceman who is willing to spend a year in Egypt as a teacher or doctor or nurse.

Good idea, except for the whole salaries for nurses, teachers and doctors.

I agree. We have to keep our stock dividends rolling in so we can contribute to our Rs

Pretty good. We can Americanize the children over there and have them turn their backs on the ragheads who cause nothing but trouble. Definite twinkle

Wishful thinking - do you really know just how much money is being sent out of this country - millions upon millions and no one gives a damm. But they complain about the Sequester and we can't even tour the White House. Pathetic when Obama says "the world will boil over" if we allow people in Africa to own cars, homes, and air conditioning.

He wants them to wait until we can provide them with "green energy". Yah, they can put solar panels on their cardboard huts.

The best thing the US can do is stay out of Egypt's business. They are a sovereign nation. We have no business there. Do you really think our help is appreciated? The US needs to stop being the world police. We always screw it up. We also need to stay out a Syria, including supplying weapons.

The world will boil over, but then turns around and promises $7 billion in aid to electrify six sub-Saharan African nations:

It doesn't take a genius to read between the lines. It has less to do with improving the standard of living in Africa and more to do with competing with China in the region in a quest to exploit the resources of the continent.
