President Barack Hussein Obama is playing ‘cute’ on the word “coup” when it comes to defining epic events in Egypt.
“US massive military aid to Cairo would have to be cut by law if the removal of the Islamist leader is determined by Washington to have been a coup.” (BBC, July 11. 2013)
This play on words is a slap in the face to every Egyptian who played a part in the ouster of Obama’s friend Muslim Brotherhood President Mohamed Morsi.
Obama is the expert of coups, having pulled off the biggest western coup of all time back in 2008. All identity tags for the monumentally unaccomplished senator from Illinois were scrubbed before he tossed his hat into the presidential race. The White House being captured, Obama surrounded himself with 30-40 1960s hippy-style czars, not one of them ever elected.
Now, that’s a coup!
Obama probably hates it that the 30 million souls who took to the streets in Cairo and throughout Egypt for the largest protests in human history dare to call it a ‘revolution’.
In Obama’s mind, there’s no such thing as revolution unless it’s the one that he and Bill Ayers started back in Chicago and the one that they continue to play out to this day.
The revolution in Cairo likely reminds him of the one happening on his watch, the Tea Party Movement.
No Egyptian commander Al Sisi in fighting style, this is how cunning Obama fights revolution in both countries. Back in 2010 when it became apparent the Tea Party would never give up, it was somehow arranged that the IRS would hold back on requested charitable status for more than 130 Tea Party groups.
That’s how Obama fights revolution in an America he deliberately seeks to destroy.
How is he fighting the revolution bound people of Egypt?
With political unrest still plaguing Egypt, Obama is sending more weapons to a country where the Muslim Brotherhood is still a factor. Indeed, the Muslim Brotherhood, which backs Morsi, is demanding his reinstatement. Obama is not waiting for the dust to settle, he’s sending those weapons in the real time of today.
“The US officials say Washington will deliver four F-16 fighter jets in the next few weeks.
“They are part of an already agreed bigger order of 20 planes—eight of which were sent to Egypt in January. The final eight are expected to be shipped later this year.
“White House spokesman Jay Carney on Wednesday reiterated that it would not be “in the best interests of the United States to make immediate changes to our assistance programmes”.
“He added that the administration would take its time to consider the implications of removing Mr. Morsi from power.” (BBC)
There is no change in the administration. It is still supplying weapons to Egypt and Obama is still an unabashed Muslim Brotherhood booster.
Ducking for cover behind defining Egypt as a ‘coup’ or a ‘revolution’ changes nothing.
