Egypt: Don’t make me laugh

United States bluntly urged Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak on Wednesday to make political reforms in the face of protesters demanding his ouster, marking a pivot in its stance toward a key Arab ally. So reports Reuters

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton delivered the message at a news conference with the foreign minister of Jordan, another Arab country that watched the ouster of Tunisia’s president in a popular revolt two weeks ago.

The response: blatant hypocrisy.

The US has fed Egypt  nearly 50 billion dollars since the 1979 Camp David Accords.

A typical US buy off to defend dictators over against the legitimate democratic aspirations of their people.

The reason: Do nothing to disturb Israel’s power over the Palestinians. Mubarak is hated by the majority of his people.

Democracy? He wants his no talent son to take the reins after he leaves.No elections. More of the same. Fine with Uncle Sam.All the tear gas and tanks are part of  US largesse
