Suckers for the U.S.Aid

21 Aug

This just gives a reality check to many Egyptians calling for US aid to be cut off as if it is as easy as having some “courage” and an off-and-on button switch, well it is not that simple..
Sisi can’t afford to do so and this article explains why. Don’t hold so much hope in Sisi or SCAF for that matter, who already has military orders lined-up all until 2018, and “whose planes won’t fly and tanks won’t drive without that sustainment money that the $1.3 Billion allocates.”
For Egypt to be independent is for the revolution to win, and more importantly to spread. Relying on an army that has “neglected pilot training so badly that the Egyptian air force has one of the worst crash rates of any F-16 fleet in the world” won’t really “scare off” anyone, but us, the Egyptian people.

It is like a never ending abusive marriage, and we must break the cycle…

    Hi, Gigi. My name is Andrei Netto, I’m Paris correspondent for the newspaper O Estado de S.Paulo, from Brazil. I’ve been in Cairo for the past two years covering the revolution and its aftermath and I was wondering if you’d accept to talk to me for a couple of minutes. Let me know if I can get in touch – if you tell me your numbers, of course. Thanks in advance. Andrei (
