Getting Egypt Back In The Empire

…Well… yesterday, Sec. Kerry allegedly offered Egypt a quarter of a billion dollars in aid money if President Morsi agreed to sit back down with the I.M.F. and continue talks about that loan. That’s a rather extreme step for the state department to make at a time when the austerity package is being slammed on the people of the United States. One might think it was a rather odd political move at this given time but no one seems to be making that connection as of yet.

“Secretary of State John Kerry announced Sunday that the United States would provide $250 million in assistance to Egypt after Egypt’s president promised to move ahead with negotiations with the International Monetary Fund over economic reforms.” New York Times
